Does this skylite come with all flashing

You absolutely need to buy the flashing kit designed for this skylight. The flashing kit is essential if you want to avoid leaks.

22-1/2 in. x 46-1/2 in. Fixed Curb-Mount Skylight with Tempered Low-E3 Glass is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 56.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow just wow easy install I am amazed how easy this skylight was to install. I replaced my "bubble" type plastic ones that came with this house. These are an easy plug and play it even says it on the box. . All I did extra was a bit of weather stripping on my curb to stop any air that may try and sneak in during our frequent wind storms. I love their weight the most. Just dropped on it feels you wouldn't need to do anything else. I did like the YouTube vid said and had my helper push down on them while I drilled the screws in. They snugged right in with a great seal. They are a HUGE improvement over the old plastic bubble ones. I just wish I had done it sooner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product We installed 4 of these skylights in our house while replacing the roof. We purchased the flashing kits as well, and this is very highly recommended as this is not included with the skylight kit. The install was relatively easy and straight forward, but may be above amateur skill level. Follow install instructions closely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great replacement for a bubble style skylight We bought these skylights to replace the plastic style skylights with the aluminum flange that screw into the roof. We had so much trouble with the old ones leaking. These were a bit more involved as you have to make a wooden frame (or your husband does!) for them to sit on. The instructions explain what size to make the frame and once this was done (about a morning's work), the skylights drop straight on. I love being able to look at the stars at night through the clear glass (the old ones had white translucent plastic panels). They're easy to clean and the low E glass keeps the room warmer in winter and cooler in the summer. We'll probably buy the skylight blinds sometime this year.
