Installation of a Velux Skylight
Location – Ealing, West London
This week we are visiting a home which has a Velux skylight already in place. They have an old Velux C04 which is 550mm wide and 980mm in depth.
The Velux skylight is in a bedroom and for the size of the room it is a small window. We have been bought in to make the opening wider and fit a new generation Velux UK04 which is 1340mm wide and the same depth of 980mm.
We get to work…
First we start removing the tiles around the current Velux skylight, then we remove the frame.
Old Velux frame removed. We now have to remove the tiles from the other end to enable us to make the opening bigger for the new Velux skylight.
Now that the tiles are removed, we can extend the width of the opening.
We remove the plasterboard and insulation and then we commence cutting the timber.
So now the opening has been made for the new Velux skylight. We need to line the opening with timber.
We take some time to have a quick sandwich and get a cheeky picture of our lovely clean van.
Ok sandwich eaten, we get the new Velux skylight out of the van and ready for un-boxing.
We remove the window from the box and then remove the frame from the sash.
We then take the frame upstairs to its new home and fit it into place…
A quick run downstairs and have a look at how the work is going from the outside…
Velux GGL UK04 3050 now installed.
We now install the Velux DKL UK04 blackout blind…
All done, one last look from the outside before we leave to check all the tiles are neat and look good…
