Two Skylight Installation Methods:

Installing Skylights: About Deck Mount Skylights

Deck-mount skylights attach directly to the roofing plywood eliminating the need for a curb. You do not have to build up a curb but you do need to install flashing around the skylight sealing it to the roof deck.  Deck-mounted skylights offer a lower profile on your roof and may be a more attractive option for roofs with high visibility.  If you install a Deck Mounted skylight it is imperative that the job gets done correctly as the deck mounted installation has a higher level of risk than a curb mounted installation as the skylight sits directly on the roof.  No one wants a Leaky Skylight!

Installing Skylights: About Curb Mount Skylights

Curb-mounted skylights sit on top of a framed opening in the roof roughly 8-12” high.  The Curb is sealed to the roof versus having the skylight sealed to the roof.  This has been known as the safer option to guarantee a leak proof installation. The best way to describe the design of a curb mounted skylight is to think of the curb as a shoebox and the skylight as the shoebox lid (With Deck Mounted Skylights the Shoebox lid sits directly onto the roof ). The curb, typically built using 2×4’s is attached around the opening on the roof. The curb is then flashed to the roof, and the skylight is then slid over top and fastened from the sides.  Their profile is typically more visible than a deck mounted skylight, making them slightly less attractive in some homeowner’s eyes but aside from how they sit on your roof there are no differences between either skylight option.
