Question DetailsAsked on 11/21/2017

Is it okay that the skylight window is larger than skybox by about 4inches?

We just had our roof replaced and the contractor installed/replaced 2 skylights that are about 4" larger in length than the "lightbox" opening. When we noticed it, he said that skylight companies have now changed the standard size of skylights and so it's better to use a larger standard window because the custom size windows are more prone to have problems with the custom flashing. He would instead install a custom seal around the inside of the lightbox so you wouldn't see the size discrepancy. Is this true that custom windows have more problems with the flashing kits and is it okay to have this size discrepancy (it's only about 4in)? One thing I read said it could cause problems but this was only one source.
