Sorry, can't help you with a referral. I just wanted to caution that bad installations are most often caused by: insufficient flashing and/or curb (4"min. on a <3/12 sloped roof). Many (if not most) skylights manufactured with integral curbs/flashing are prone to leaking because both the flashing and curb are too small.

EXACTLY!!! I had 2 people tell me that my skylights where installed incorrectly (was there when I bought the house). They are NOT flush with the roof. They stick up about 5-6 inches. Both leaked last year. I had them fixed with tar. However, one is starting to leak again in a different spot.

I guess its time to change them.
