If you have skylights in your home, you may have wondered how tough they are. Well here is a little video I made that gives you an idea of just how tough they are.
My home suffered hail damage in the summer of 2012. With golf ball sized hail smashing into our 6 skylights, my wife thought sure they were going to come crashing down. Well, they held. They did suffer damage. Soon after I noticed leaks around most of them and the seals had failed on others. But the glass never broke.
What you see in my little video is a picture of my son and I removing one of the skylights, with a large crowbar. This is not the safe nor approved way of doing business, but it’s my house and I really wanted to try it out.
My son by the way, is 6’3″ and 185 lbs. He was not swinging easy.
