The factory skylight is a bad design. There is a 300% difference in the coefficien of expansion in aluminum versus the acrylic. With that much difference something is going to fail and since the plastic is weaker than the aluminum the plastic cracks.
Mine are 18 years old and now leak.
I'm not complaining but will replace with product similar to Maxim.
