It took a small limb strike and I covered the small hole with some black gorilla tape. It has held up well, but I need to fix it.


I've delayed this long- there's no rush. I'm going to order from that site mentioned- I like the idea of an unbreakable skylight.

I found the hardest part of the job to be standing so long on the ladder rungs during the time consuming butyl tape removal stage. I did some of the work from the roof, but most from a ladder due to my skylight being right on the edge of the roof.


I'm still on the fence if I'll do the install or not. I really suck at being handy. I was reminded when I installed some drawer slides; the first one was good but the second one went poorly. It reminded me that I suck.

Lexan is the way to go. More costly but is not going to crack or break. You can hit this with a hammer and the hammer will bounce off. I wanted to do once and done.
