Skylights are [[window windows]] which instead of being oriented vertically, rest on either a flat horizontal or an angle, typically determined by the [[RoofPitch roof pitch]]. Some skylights are designed to be set on an incline [[curb]], which sets the skylight unit itself at a steeper pitch than the roof, allowing for increased drainage. All skylights need to have extensive [[flashing]] around it, which protects the [[RoughOpening rough opening]] from water infiltration. Many skylight units come with integral [[flashing]] as part of the unit, but often additional [[flashing]] is required.
