Dear A. Spruce,
Thank you for responding to my post and sharing your own experience with me. Nice to know I'm not alone in "Simple job getting complicated!" The contractor sent his lead man over within 90 minutes of my phone call. How rare is that?? He caulked again, called the contractor and I do believe the contractor was saying he wants to buy and install a new skylite, the lead man was saying not to. I think the owner of the company's opinion will prevail, so I suggested we take the skylight out again (appears as though it shouldn't have been removed and replaced cuz it has the curb plastic flashing attached,) and put it in correctly. I'm not sure I mentioned it's now crooked... The nice thing is, this contractor is trying really hard to make it right. I think that's wonderful, [B]until[/B] I hear them come at 7am......Thank you again. I'll keep you posted on this one!
Thank You for your Help.... Great Troubleshooting .. Stick close to your computer.. I'am sure I'll being needed some more troubleshooting in the near future Mikee
