I recently bought a 15 year old house that has ten skylights. They have a curb which raises up from the roof deck three inches and the skylight is a dome with a metal frame which sets down over the curb and is nailed in place.

The "domes" are old, tired, cracked, and some are beginning to leak.

I am looking for a source for replacement skylights that can be installed on the existing curb.

Any suggestions?

Thank you!

I think Velux will work.
I had 4 replaced last year that sound like what you have. They were replaced with Velux. (I didn't do the job myself, so can't give you much detail.)
You can find Velux at big box home improvement stores.
The Velux are flat rather than dome shaped and are better quality than the ones they replaced.

Hi CWL13,
You should also be able to find a name on the original skyligths to give you another source for replacements. Check the hardware as well as the flashing area on the outside. A lot will be determined by the size, shape and the way they operate or if they operate at all.........Mark Hammond
