An onsite skylight survey and inspection was made on 7/26/2016 by Skylight Specialists, Inc.
Represented by Rob Packard.

Skylights on the site:

  1. 2 Glass Saddle Ridge Skylights  – insulated glass units with frit pattern. Total 148 glass units.
  2. 14 Unit Pyramid Skylights in Clusters – bronze over clear, acrylic, curb mount, 5’ x 5’ nominal. Three clusters of 4 ea and one cluster of 2 ea.
  3. 12 Unit Pyramid Skylights – White over clear,  acrylic, curb mount, 4’ x 4’ nominal.

What We Found:

  1. Glass Skylights:
    1. The skylight frame and flashing are in good shape.
    2. All glass units have failed seals and show fogged glass. About 10% -15% have visibly etched glass.
  2. Cluster Skylights:
    1. Roofers have disassembled and reassembled skylights.
    2. Gasketing, silicone and fasteners are not up to manufacturers specifications. Screws are missing or placed incorrectly, incorrect fasteners used, etc.
    3. The skylight frames were fit tight to the curbs which can cause expansion/contraction problems with the frames and lenses.
    4. Gutters were replaced with the same material as the roofing. They retain water but are in good condition, no leaks reported.
  3. Unit Skylights: All units are in good shape; however the shaft openings are blocked on the interior.
