Location – Chigwell, Essex

Today we are replacing 4 VELUX skylights in this loft bedroom.  The current VELUX skylights are very old and in desperate need of replacing.

This valued customer had not long prior to us coming, purchased blinds for these windows and had asked us to do our best to save the blinds… always at your service, lets see what we can do.

Let’s get to work…

Here is an image of two of the VELUX skylights.  The fitter gets to work on these two.  We wont bore you by showing you the process of each window as its the same, so we will show you as a whole job.


The fitter opens the VELUX and removes the sash from the frame

Once this is done, we get to work on the outside, removing the VELUX frame.


VELUX frame removed.  We now have to install the new frame.

The frame is in.  To give you an idea of how old the VELUX skylight was, here is a before and after shot, outside on the roof.



So now the two on one side of the house are done, we go over to the other side of the house.


The process will be the same, so here are the images of the process.

All frames are now installed.  The next job will be to install the VELUX sash’s into place on all 4 skylights.
