Morning all and welcome to this week’s fitting of the week with Loftshop.

Today we are installing a new GGU (White Polyurethene) Velux roof window into a new opening. Let’s see how we got on!

This is where we would be working today, I promise it gets more exciting than this!

We start by measuring out the opening needed for the new window and making sure it is nice and central.

Once marked, we begin to make the first cut of the opening and begin to do the timber work inside.

Now the opening is done on the inside, lets get the window ready to be installed!

Nice job! Now with the frame in and fixed down tight. We begin to put the flashing kit around the outside of the window to stop any leaks.

Top job Mr. Fitter! And here we have the finished job. A Velux GGU FK06 (660 x 1180) with a blackout blind.

Thanks for reading our fitting of the week. If you are interested in having a loft ladder or roof window installed, please do not hesitate to contact us on 020 8551 5800
