    Default skylight flashing

    this is one for the roof plumbers out there. when installing a skylight on a corrugated roof should i nib the front of the skylight flashing to sit in the corrugated groves. At the moment the skylight flashing on the front is just a straight piece. im not to concerned about the rear of the skylight beacuse it will be backflashed, but i am curious even tho it will be backflashed should i nib the back of skylight flashing to sit in the groves aswell and then put the backflashing on. was just worried if i nib the front and not the back it might make the skylight sit on an little angle

    Generally yes ,but its hard to tell without a picture.Whatever you do dont silicon it up it will leak.Dont forget to bend up the channel ends underneath.

    Won't be much help because my skylight for our corro roof came with a tray that was already profiled to fit the ribbing. So flashing and sealing was straightforward. It is a Regency skylight.
