READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY BEFORE STARTING!
STANDARD ROOF MOUNTS
ARE SUITABLE FOR ANY ROOF TYPE PITCHED OR FLAT
THIS SET OF INSTRUCTIONS IS FOR A SHINGLE ROOF. YOU SHOULD CONTACT
A ROOFER OR CONTRACTOR for ANY OTHER ROOF TYPE.
PLEASE BE VERY CAREFUL! SHEET METAL HAS SHARP EDGES.
1. Determine placement of the TUBULAR SKYLIGHT™ taking care not to place it under a ridge or a valley on the roof. The location of the
TUBULAR SKYLIGHT™ should be placed so as not to cast your shadow on the area where you will need the light in the room.

2. At this time prime and paint the top 2 or 3
inches of the pipe exterior so it will be dry at the
time of installation. It is important the paint covers
the pipe where it comes into contact with the
flashing. The flashing may also be primed and
painted to match the roof color.
3. Check the length of pipe needed by
measuring from the ceiling to the roof plus 1 foot.
The best way to do this is to take a probe, (coat
hanger or wire) push it up through the ceiling at
the location where the TUBULAR SKYLIGHT™
is to be placed (Fig. 1). Now go in the attic and
locate the probe, measure this area. Also you
need to check that the area is clear of any ducts
or pipes. Clear away the insulation from around
the probe. Take note where the ceiling joists are
in relationship to the probe. Return to the living
area of the home.
4. Locate .the ceiling joist. The side of the pipe
will attach to this ceiling joist. With a drywall saw
cut through the ceiling to the ceiling joist (Fig.
2). Insert a pencil in the enclosed PVC compass
Use the enclosed compass to locate the center of
he hole for the pipe (Fig 3). Using the compass
keep the center of the compass straight up and
down) draw an 8 inch or 13 inch circle on the
ceiling. (Depending on the kit you have). If the
ceiling is vaulted the compass slides up and
down on the center pipe creating an elliptical
circle.
5.Proceed by cutting the ceiling hole. Now that
the ceiling hole is cut, you will need to locate the
roof hole center point to be cut. Plumb from the
hole in the ceiling either with a level or a plumb
line up to the roof boards and mark the spot (Fig.
4). Drill a small hole up through the roof. It may
be necessary to push a probe up through the
hole to help you locate it from the top of the roof.

6. Locate the roof hole center point on the roof.
Place the flashing over the hole as close to the
center of the upper opening in the flashing as
possible (Fig 5). Mark around the inside of the
flashing with a crayon or pencil.

CAULK FLASHING, SEAM & ROOF
Remove the flashing and cut with your reciprocal
saw (about 1/4 of an inch outside of your mark)
through the roofing and roof boards (Fig 6). It may
be necessary to drill a pilot hole to start your cut.
Take care not to let the cutout drop through to the
ceiling. It can damage your ceiling. Using a putty
knife, slide it under the shingles, starting with the
lowest shingle that will end up on top of the
flashing. Slide putty knife around the hole to locate
any nails or staples in the way of the flashing.
Remove any nails or staples found. Now slide the
flashing under the shingles, taking care as not to
damage the black paper under the shingles.
Check the fit of the flashing to the hole (Fig 7). After
checking the fit remove the flashing. Caulk all
flashing seams. Turn the flashing upside down.
Put two beads of caulk near the center of the flat
part of the flashing, all the way around the flashing
(Fig 8). Turn the flashing over (do not lay the
flashing down on the roof). Slide the flashing under
the shingles (Fig 7), lifting the flashing so you don't
spread the caulking on the roof. With the flashing
in place, fasten the flashing to the roof with the 6
truss head screws, put 4 screws across the bottom
and one at each top corner (Fig 9). On the top lift
the shingle tab and place the screw under the tab.
The 4 screws on the bottom should be screwed in
half way. Then place a small amount of caulking on
each screw thread and screw them in all the way.
This will help prevent leaks from occurring at the
screws. You are finished on the roof for now.
7. You will need to prepare the pipe at this time.
Lay the pipe on the floor, place the male side of the
snap lock into the female side. Make sure the
seam is locked in place (slap both sides of the pipe
to get it to lock). Using a sharp knife cut along both
sides of the snap lock on the inside of the pipe.
This will cut the protective film and make it easier to
remove. If you are using only one pipe you may
remove the protective film later in the installation. If
you are using more than one pipe you must remove
the protective film at this time. If you are using
more than one pipe put them together now. You
will need to remove the film from the crimped end of
the top pipe and push it up as far as you can, and
leave until later, then turn down the film in the lower
pipe. To put the two pipes together insert the
crimped end of the one pipe in the other pipe, the
seams do not need to line up. The two pipes may
be fastened together with pop rivets or small
screws (this is not necessary). Place duct tape
around the seam of the two pipes and press it down
tight on the pipe.
8. Now you are ready to install the pipe. Slide the
pipe through the hole in the ceiling (Fig 10)
crimped end down), pushing it up through the ceiling
and through the flashing, at least 1/4 of an inch

(Fig 11). At this point if you can not push the pipe
through the flashing, you will need to trim the

flashing on the roof to allow the pipe to pass through it.
The pipe must extend at least 1/4 of an inch above the
flashing. It may be necessary to trim the pipe to get it flush
with the ceiling. If so, mark around the pipe with a pencil
at the ceiling (Fig 12A) and mark on the ceiling where
the seam is located. This will help to keep the pipe lined
up. Now pull the pipe down a little (you may need two pair
of pliers to do this) 2 to 3 inches will be enough.

You can take the pipe all the way out if this is easier. Cut
around the pipe on your pencil mark with a pair of tin snips.
Push the pipe up flush with the ceiling. Be careful!! After
cutting the pipe with tin snips it has very sharp edges. With
the pipe in place secure the pipe to your ceiling joist with
one truss head screw (Fig 12B).

9. Return to the roof with the clear acrylic dome and the
pile strip seal. (Fig 13). Caulk around the flashing
Figure 16
where it meets the roofing. Pull the protective film down
from the pipe about half way down the pipe. Remove the
paper back from the pile strip and place the pile strip around the top of the flashing (Fig 14A). Place
the clear dome over the top of the flashing taking care not to pull the pile away from the flashing (Fig
14B). Now lift any shingle tabs that are lose and place a small bead of caulk along the bottom edge of
the shingle to secure the shingle together and to the flashing. Caulk each screw head. Now you are
finished on the roof.
11. Back inside the house. Remove the protective film. Remove the paper back from the metal tape,
tearing off pieces about 3 inches long and placing them about 1 ½ inches in the pipe and taping the
pipe to the ceiling, overlapping the tape, make sure the crack between the ceiling and the pipe is
completely covered. Remove protective film from the clear plastic disk. Place the clear plastic disk over
the end of the pipe as close to the center as possible, make sure one of the holes is lined up under the
ceiling joist. Mark the other 3 holes, install the screw anchors in the drywall. Remove the paper back
from the white foam seal and place it on the clear plastic disk about ¼ from edge and over the screw
holes (Fig 16). Install the clear plastic over the pipe with the 4 one-inch screws, tighten the screw to
about one half the thickness of the foam seal. Now place the diffuser on the clear plastic disk (Fig 17).
Turn the diffuser to lock it in place.
