The advice about the lighting is nice but your roof installation is
First you used a plastic flashing. Looks like ODL from Home Depot. The
lighting on these units are poor at best. Mainly a blue light unless its in
full sun. There flashing’s are constantly warping. You can upgrade to an
aluminum flashing but the product is not a very well built product. Yes it
will bring light in, but a Yugo will also drive down the road. Doesn’t mean
i would buy one.
Alot of light is leaking into the attic. This is because of poor design.
Also the knuckles should have been taped. If not light will leak into the
attic and bugs will get in. ODL is notorious for bugs because they are not
well sealed where the tube meets the flashing and dome. There is no upper
seal so bugs cant help but get in.
Like i said, it will bring in light but Box stores aren’t the best place to
purchase these brands of solar tube if you want something that will last.
Usually when you cut a hole in your roof you want something to last.
You might want to redo the shingles around your roof flashing. There should
only be a 1/2 inch to 1 inch gap around the base of the flashing. You dont
have enough shingles protecting the flange from water infiltration.
