How NOT to apply flashing to a skylight

Just hopped up to check out a neighbor’s roof and was fascinated to see how the previous crew applied step flashing to a skylight…

So where is the picture of the step flashing thats applied to the skylight?

you just showed a water diverter, and a few extra pieces of step flashing that were left on the roof after the job was finished.

They applied it by resting a stack of step flashing pieces against the upper edge of the skylight.

:badgrin: Anything on the sides?

The step flashing goes on the sides not for a pan on the backside.

The pan looks continuous. Although home made it shouldn’t be leaking.

Are you sure they didn’t just forget and leave a stack of steps behind?
