Location – Croydon, Surrey
This week we were blessed with lovely weather. Perfect for fitting a roof window. In fact today we are replacing an existing roof window. The current roof window was very worse for wear and of such an age that we didn’t even know what make it was (I know we are shocked too!).
Time to get to work.
We started by removing the sash, this was tricky as it was sealed shut, you can see from the images how bad a state the window was in.
We managed to release the sash from its seal and remove it from the frame.
It was then time to move the tiles out the way and remove the frame from the roof.
Fantastic and neatly done too. Time to get the new Fakro roof window out the van and ready to install onto the roof.
Once we removed the sash from the frame, we install the new Fakro roof window frame onto the roof.
Looking good! looking good! Now we have to install the flashing kit around the Fakro roof window (the flashing kit is what keeps the water out).
All done and ready to put in the Fakro roof window sash.
It’s in and looks great. Good job!
