Location – Whitechapel, London

This week we were back down to the estate in Whitechapel to replace another two VELUX roof windows.  These roof windows were in serious need of replacing.

Todays roof windows are 780 x 1400 in size.

Lets get to work…

Here are a few pictures to give you an idea of the state they were in before we came to the rescue.

You can see from these images the urgency needed to change the VELUX roof windows.  This poor customer was sleeping in a room full of draft, not good for their health.  We will put it right.

First we set out removing the old VELUX roof windows.


We then set out placing the new ones into position.

Great work mr fitter! lets take the camera outside and have a look at the roof windows from the outside.

Looks really neat! and draft proof!

Back to the inside as we put a nice timber piece in the middle of the two windows to give a lovely effect.


Mr fitter, this is a bedroom.  Didn’t the customer also ask for blinds? it may be draft proof but they need to be able to sleep too… no problem!
