Fakro Roof Window Installation

Location – Enfield, Middlesex

Hello from Enfield in Middlesex / North London. This week we are installing a Fakro roof window.

Fakro are a very innovative manufacturer of roof window.  With very high specification components.


The Fakro topSafe system is a unique system only available on the Fakro roof window, making it the safest roof window on the market.


This customer already had a roof window in their loft and they wanted another one to sit alongside it.

We get straight to work marking where we will cut out the plasterboard.

We then start cutting the opening for the Fakro roof window

Now that the opening has been created and prepared, we have to get the Fakro roof window frame ready…

We apply the brackets to the frame.  This will allow us to fix the window to the roof.  Once the window has been fixed to the roof, we have to apply the flashing kit.  The flashing kit stop the rain water from coming into the loft.
