SunOptics Skylight Order


So this morning I opened the sky light I ordered online from HD.
3 issues
Metal frame was bent in 2 places
Installation screws (10 of them) missing
Then related flashing kit does not seem to fit the opening for the frame

SunOptics Skylight Order


So figured out that there is supposed to be a little space that is equal distance all around between the curb and the skylight flange
So since the original skylight was damaged they ordered me a new one at a 10% discount.
So in the mean I should be able to build the curb and flashing arkound the opening.

SunOptics Skylight Order


so when i build the curb to mount the sky light - should i use treated lumber or plain pine 2 x 4 wood?
Theoretically it should not get wet
