Skylights and translucent roof structure is very common in modern construction – not only do they provide bright illumination, but also gives the building an original and modern design. Light (or anti-aircraft) lights get their name from the word "zenith" because by the glass structure, which is fixed to the roof, they provide room penetration of sunlight at the zenith. Rooflights are skylights located in the roof covering the roof. They can be of different designs: conventional flat glass roof of a horizontal glass, or a lantern in the form of complex geometric structures. These lights often used in industrial buildings, commercial premises, or country houses, lanterns are perfect for a winter garden.

Skylights are able to ventilate the room, provide additional access to the roof and may even have the function of dymoudaleniya.Montazh Rooflights can be manufactured from different materials: glass sheets, panels made of polymer materials, glass. Also, lights are different in shape: a lean-, double slope, pyramid and curvilinear forms. And finally, rooflights differ in design solution: they can be "blind" – not opening, with automatic, mechanical actuators, and lights, open hand. Skylights delivered to the construction site already in finished form. Thus, workers can only build in skylights in the building. Skylights can be installed on direct and to the roof slope.

Location lamps is calculated at the design stage. Installation of skylights are conducted in several steps: marking the working area, which will be installed lights, ceiling treatment and preparation of the opening in the roof, strengthening the walls of the opening, securing the support units and support structures, installation of safety nets, light-transmitting assembly of parts, installation of flat strips (By which fastened to the transparent elements of the filling). Particular attention is paid to work installing lights in support. The support circuits may be made of fiberglass sheets, profiles, or aluminum alloy. There are some rules for working with supports rooflights: foot should be above the roof elevation of not less than 300 mm. To connect to the reference circuit and frame elements make optimal use of light bolts or self-tapping screws.

Instead of glass installed polycarbonate honeycomb sheets or plates, the very basic structure of the old rooflight is preserved. Thanks to its light weight polycarbonate sheets make it easy to carry design, in addition polycarbonate sheets have high impact-resistant ability and possess good insulating characteristics. Also rooflights can be replaced by new complex konstruktsii.Obsluzhivanie skylights basic rule-of-service rooflights – clear light transmitting elements. You can carry out dry cleaning – for this purpose special paste that is applied to glass, and then removed without further washing. You can choose a semi-dry method of cleaning – also applied to the glass paste, but after removing the glass is washed. There is a wet cleaning rooflights – is carried out with water and special solvents. For cleaning, use of special tools and devices – high-pressure cleaners, electric brushes, rubber scrapers with different nozzles, foam sponges, etc. Use in construction of buildings such advanced solutions as skylights or translucent roof simultaneously solve two problems – coverage areas with natural light and giving individual types building. Rooflights – the original focus, which will be a key element of the whole architectural composition. Source: PC-fabricated buildings from Vesta

CONSTRUCTION defects: Homeowners to claim deadlines. The ignorance by the owners of the various deadlines of L.O.E. entails the loss of his right to claim. With the entry into force of the new building management law, applicable to all those buildings whose construction license has been requested subsequent to May – 2000, we can hold accountable to the various constructive actors (promoter, Builder, architect, quantity surveyor, etc), for existing in our House or building material damage:-affecting the structure and foundation – that affect the functionality or habitability: facilities, accessibility, acoustic and thermal insulation, etc – bad finishes and finials. LIABILITY and warranty periods damage affecting the structural safety of the building must occur within a period of 10 years. That affect the livability and facilities must manifest itself during the 3 years. And finally the evil essences and auctions must manifest a year. These deadlines they start counting from the date of receipt of the work by the developer (certificate of receipt) guarantees: 1 year: the constructor is responsible for the bad finishes or remates.3 years: responds the developer, Builder, architects, designers.

All agents for material damage caused by vices or defects affecting the habitabilidad-funcionalidad and facilities. 10 years: all respond if they affect the structural safety of the building (Foundation, supports, beams, slabs, walls, letter, etc). Will the promoter always respond jointly one of the most common mistakes that we have been observing in the owners, after the entry into force of the new management of the building law, is his confusion and ignorance in relation to the various existing deadlines: warranty and claim. If your building or housing is damaged, and you want to complain to the various constructive actors, must first prove that they have been expressed within the warranty period (1 year, 3 years, or 10 years), according to case of bad finishes or shots, damage afectantes to habitability and/or facilities or afectantes to the Foundation and structure damage.
