Location – Forest Hill, London
This week, this valued customer wanted us to fit a wooden loft ladder along with a roof window to allow natural daylight into his loft space. Both products were from a manufacturer called Fakro. They make very high quality roof windows and loft ladders.
The wooden loft ladder would require a new opening to be made in the ceiling, no problem… lets get to work.
All products in van ready to go..
This is where the loft ladder is going to be fitted, image of hall way and inside loft.
This is where the Fakro roof window will go.
We will show you the roof window fitting first, then scroll down to see the loft ladder fitting.
So we get to work fitting the Fakro roof window…
As you can see, the opening for the Fakro skylight is now ready for window frame to be installed.
We hop down to the van and get the Fakro skylight. We un-package it and install it into the preformed opening.
Now the window is installed, we have to put the flashing kit around the window and tile it up on the outside.
All done, now we need to install the roof window sash to finish the job.
Brilliant, all done. Fakro skylight fully installed
Now onto the timber loft ladder…
We clear the area where the loft ladder will go. Then we cut the timber joist.
We then re line the opening to form the frame for the loft ladder and remove the laths.
Now that the frame is made, we then cut the plasterboard ceiling to form the opening for the loft ladder.
Another visit to the van to get the loft ladder…
We then install the loft ladder into the preformed opening.
Now the ladder is installed, we finish it off underneath with architrave.
All done, lets have a look at the ladder all fitted…
