Broken Acrylic Dome Replacement

Cracks in the acrylic dome skylights necessitate replacement.

The acrylic has become brittle over time and both skylights had lots of cracks. Stress created by expansion and contraction can cause numerous small cracks along the edges. Larger cracks are often caused by impact.

Three layers of protection.

Ice and water shield is an adhesive underlayment for secondary water protection against the harshest weather conditions.

Velux engineered flashing simplifies installation and provides primary water protection.

The skylight gasket provides a tight seal between a standard site-built curb and the skylight that caps off a leak-proof installation for curb mounted skylights.
