my skylights are on a raised curb.they leak after a hard rain. contractor says he has tried everything, including running flashing way back under the tin at the top of the curb. he tried putting tar on the curb and back under the tin but this still does not stop it .it does not leak in the house, but goes under the metal and comes out the boxing. any ideas?

I do not understand your reference to the waater not leaking inside but instead going under the metal comning out the "boxing." With some flashing methods, some water might be carried under one flashing but on top of another and drained out at the bottom. Can you send me photos of how they are flashed> [email protected]

the water is running under the metal and coming out the boxing at the eaves of the house between the gutter and facia board. the metal extends about 2 into the gutter, but water comes out below there. did you get the photos?
