I alway pray for overcast day when I schedule Skylights. Every time I got to the top of the ladder the sun cam out. When I got down it went behind a cloud. I amazing how much more pleasant it get when the R-20 gets slapped in there.

At least my film handler didn't fall apart. That was the first thing I checked.

Skylights :lol2

If you are sure you're going up the ladder more than once or twice, you might consider going up the ladder on the outside and placing a sheet over the skylight, anchoring the corners down with weight so the wind don't blow it away and then install the film. :wall

More steps, yes, more pleasant an experience, yes... too much to do for one skylight... may be! :wall

I have definately done that before. Actually what I do is tie a rope to the corner of a cloth tarp. If I'm lucky, it comes right down. Saves a trip back up the roof. Unforunately this job did not have easy roof access.

Came out real nice, except for the small fly that got under the bottom corner. I guess he will be there for ever. Fortunately it can't be seen from below.
