Location – Chingford, London

Another valued customer, who already had a velux roof window fitted in a loft conversion built a few years prior.  This gentleman wanted another window fitted along side the other one.  We got to work…

This is the current velux roof window, and we will be installing a new velux roof window to the right hand side.

We got to work, cutting out the plasterboard.


One important thing, we need to ensure that the new window is level with the previously installed velux roof window

Once we are sure its level, we set out completing the opening for the new roof window


Now let there be light!

While the fitter prepared the opening ready for the window, I set off and got the velux roof window ready



The next step was to take window sash (glass part) out of the frame so that it could be installed into the newly formed opening.


Once the frame is in and secured into place.  We had to make sure the area around the frame is watertight.  This calls for the flashing kit! …flashing kit??? ah there you are…

Once the flashing kit is in place, its time to tile around velux roof window.


All tiled, all water tight and securely in place.  It is time to get the sash ready and put into place.


Brilliant, we are done! A new velux roof window supplied and fitted.
