Installation of a Velux Roof window

Location – Basildon, Essex

This week we are in Basildon, Essex.  We are replacing an old Velux roof window, size 1140mm x 1180mm.  The old roof window is very rotten and is over 20 years old.

We are lucky with a lovely day! Let’s get to work…


Here you can see the old Velux roof window from the outside.  We could tell the age straight away, as it had that gold cladding around the outside.


You can see here from this inside view that the Velux roof window is starting to rot.


We get to work on removing the roof window sash.

The sash is now removed.  It is time to remove the frame.

Look how hard our fitter works…!

Now that the old rotten frame is removed, Our next step is to prepare the new window for installation.

We need to remove the new sash from the frame first.  This is because the frame gets fitted first and the sash is the last thing to go in.
