if a skylight leaks heavily during a storm...
We have an approx. 2.5'x 4 ft skylight that leaked slightly at one corner a year ago during heavy storms. A roofer was called, said the skylight itself was sound and basically reinstalled it.
This September there was a three day long rainstorm in our area (VA)and the skylight leaked catastrophically all along one of the shorter sides. It damaged the ceiling, damaged flooring etc.
It's rained since but not really heavily and it hasn't leaked again.
We have a 7-year warranty on the repair and I've been playing cat and mouse with the roofer to come check it out. He said at one point that "oh,well, if it rains enough any skylight will end up leaking."
Is he just making this up? The other skylight on our roof didn't leak in that storm nor in any of the other huge storms the year before.
