Hello, I'm planning on installing a skylight on my house, which has a torchdown roof. The skylight install part i'm good on, but does anyone have any advice on what to do once it's in? Do I just need to seal the edges (where the flashing meets or goes under the existing roof with roofing cement? (i'm guessing that it can't be that easy) Or do I need to apply new torchdown material over the flashing? If it's the latter I'm guessing I'll have to hire it out (not interested in learning how to torchdown a roof [or possibly torching my roof] for this relatively tiny repair (or is it worth it?)...

Slope of the roof?
Size of the skylight?
Type of Mod Bit? (SBS or APP) Granular surfaced or smooth? Coated?
Is the skylight curb welded water tight?

On a low slope roof the curb must be at least 8 inches high. You cannot use a low profile skylight on a low slope roof.
