Location – Whitechapel, London

Good morning from London, as we enter the Whitechapel area of London, we overlook some fantastic landmarks at the hub of the city.

Today we are replacing two very old VELUX roof windows.  These roof windows have been in place for well over 20 years and are in some need of replacing.  The current VELUX roof windows are what is known as “coupled”, this means the windows are placed right next to each other.  We have to replicate this.

…Loft Shop fitting team, assemble! lets get to work!

We start by removing the window sashes

Once the roof window sashes are removed, its time to remove the frames.


Roof window frames removed and in come the nice shiny new frames.  Fresh pine!

Roof window frames in and its all made watertight on the outside.  We need to get the new sashes into place.

Excellent work, I promise I did help him, I didn’t just watch and sip tea.


Now the centre of the two windows did have a cosmetic piece before to make it look nice in the middle, it was painted red so wouldn’t really look good.  We got to work on putting a nice new piece of pine timber in the middle of the two windows.


Excellent work, looks great.
