Removing Bedroom Skylight


I meet with the remodeling company next week to finalize everything. Once complete I will post pics and let you know how it went and how easy or not it was.

Removing Bedroom Skylight


Skylights are JUNK! I put a new roof on my house this fall and took one out in my master bath. It leaked water and air. Nothing worse than getting out of a hot shower in January and getting an ice cold drop of condensation induced water on the shoulder or back. One word of caution as far as cost to remove and reroof. You don't know what's under the shingles until you take them off. My skylight was roughly 15"x 24". It took over a sheet of plywood to replace everything that was rotted or water damaged due to a crappy flashing job by the builder.

this is my dilema. If i ever get to build my dream home. i would want a huge glassed in area over the shower so i can see stars at night. and a nice setting with maybe fake trees or reall trees. i am thinking fake due to roots of course, but i love the smell of forest. maybe small plants would work nicely? But i have always known that skylights in anyform always leak that i have seen.
