C. Acrylic Barrel Vault Skylight
  1. (1 ea.) Acrylic Pyramid, covered with roofing. Original acrylic skylight from 1977. Needs to be replaced.
  2. (12 ea.) Structural Glass Ridge Skylights. Replaced in 2006, all are in good shape. No work needed. Single glazed.
  3. (1 ea.) Acrylic Barrel Vault Skylight – original skylight from 1977. Cracked and fogged acrylic. Gaskets are degraded. Parts are falling off. Very bad shape and needs to be replaced.
  4. (2 ea.) Structural Glass Polygon Skylights. Replaced in 1996, both are leaking. One is in much worse shape than the other, due to poor or degraded sealants.
  5. (3 ea.) Structural Glass Pyramid Skylights. One replaced in 1996, two replaced in 2006. Single glazed, fairly decent shape. Need a wet seal on the 1996 skylight.
  6. (12 ea.) Structural Glass Pyramid Skylights.Smaller 8’x 8’ skylights were replaced in 2006. All in good shape. No work needed. Single glazed.

Recommendations:
