Necessary to replace skylights when re-roofing?

Page 2 of 2  


If the same size is used, shouldn't be a problem. You may find the existing drywall in the light shaft is a bit mushy, you will want to replace it, if it is.
We don't know how the existing drywall is, in relation to the actual skylight. There's a lot of "if's" involved, at this point it would only be speculation to give you a yes or no answer.
Velux lights have the interior of their light, where it can be stained etc, or drywall ran up in side to a channel in the wood. You can have the finish appearance of stained wood, then put a thin trim boxed out at the top of the drywall. You may be able to do this, only someone who knows how your existing is done, will be able to tell you. And, they may not until they get into it.

============================================================ That's all good & well, but I don't recall saying anything about the Space Shuttle's windows being made out of plastic. You may want to reread what I wrote.

================================================================ You assumed I meant windows in spacecraft. That is what the manufacturers want people to assume. The marketing technique works, you read something, I never wrote.
The plastic can be used anywhere in the spacecraft.... see?

I see what you are saying. What company makes this claim?
When speaking of skylights, the first thing that comes to mind (my mind anyway) when speaking about "plastic being used in aircraft/ spacecraft" would be the windows.
Now considering that aircraft use "plastic" windows the manufacturer is telling the truth, but spacecraft? I guess there could be something inside of the Space Shuttle made out of Plexi or Lexan.
