An onsite skylight survey and inspection made on 8/25/2016 revealed multiple problems.

Clear domes not always the best idea

Both the inboard and outboard lights have crazing, cracking and all skylights show signs of condensation. Additionally, the skylights are not fall protected.

Numerous attempted repairs have been made to the skylights, by others, although none have been effective.  The “repairs”  consist of dumping on tar or mastic and using the wrong sealants. We even see roofing tape (with large holes in it caused by animals) and rubber backer rod to ineffectively help with gutters and other problems.

  • (2) 19’ x 19’ (nominal) structural, acrylic, pyramid skylights. These are in a saw tooth pattern and in a cluster. These skylights are located over the hotel atrium.
  • (2) 10’ by 10’ (nominal) structural, acrylic, pyramid skylights. These skylights are located over the pool.

The Retrofit:

All four skylights will be replaced with our MAGS BAR system with polycarbonate dome sets. The work eliminates any gutters and re-flashes the exterior of the curb to the new roofing. These changes  will make the skylight leakproof now and long into the future.

With the interior protected and safety zones set up, the demolition of the old skylights proceeds. The flashing and framework installation is the next step.

Then the glazing is installed and a final cleanup finishes the job.
