Location – Wanstead, London
Good morning from a gloriously sunny East London. Today we are replacing another old Velux skylight. This was a rather large skylight, 940 mm wide and 1600 mm in height (Velux P10 window).
The old Velux skylight was timber and was starting to rot. We are going to replace this one with a white one. We are also going to fit a new blackout blind.
Time to get to work…
Here is the current Velux skylight
It’s time to remove this Velux skylight.
The sash is removed and the old frame has been taken out. Lets have a look at the old frame
As you can see, its old and rotting. Now its all removed, we prepare the opening for the new Velux skylight.
Opening all prepared and ready. Time to get the new white Velux skylight out of the box and up to the loft.
Ok time to install the new skylight frame into the opening.
Looking really good Mr Fitter! What do we have to do next? We had to put the window sash into place.
Lets step back and have a quick look, how does it look?
Great looks good. Ok now all in place, let’s get the Velux blackout blind ready.
Ok all the parts are ready and time to install.
That looks good, lets see how effective it is, close it fully Mr Fitter…
…complete blackout! Looks great…
Our work here is done, one last look before we go…
…and one last look on the outside to check the skylight is fitted neatly…
