Believe it or not, these skylights are done according to the guidelines of the Tile Roofing Institute and the manufacturer's instructions.
The rain water is being channeled under the tile, onto the tar paper, causing premature wear and eventually ruining the roof in the area.
What most people find hard to believe is that the guidelines put out by the Tile Roofing Institute & the tile manufacturers, have flaws in them.
If the guidelines of the industry are so incredibly flawed, no wonder the average contractor, roofer or skylight installer is confused about proper roofing and flashing techniques.
Proper Flashing Technique As Defined By OC With Blue Knight Skylights:
If your skylight is leaking, it's because of one of two reasons.
1) The skylight is cracked.
2) The flashing was improperly installed at the roof curb junction.
The techniques we use in the installation of our skylights, especially where they meet the roof, are unique to us nation-wide. Therefore we are unwilling to share them with our competitors. Thus, you will not see a close up diagram or picture of our finished installations at the roof line.

Everything I've ever seen on Google or Youtube on skylight installation, is incorrect by our standards.
