Location – Basildon, Essex
This week we are visiting a home which had a large (very large) skylight in their kitchen. It must have been there since the house was built. The skylight was just several sheets of glass encased in lead. We would have to remove the sheets of glass (carefully) and bring in the frame slightly. The reason for this is because no roof window on the market had a product which was the exact size. Fakro roof windows however had a product which was very close, there would be a little bit of frame work to do but nothing that can not be made “pretty” afterwards with a bit of plasterboard.
We get to work…
Here is the current product, the glass has blown and it is leaking and being in the kitchen, you can imagine, this is not pleasant for the home owners.
We then very carefully remove the glass, we had to be slow and careful as they were big sheets of glass.
We then prepare the opening for the Fakro roof window.
After the opening was prepared for the Fakro roof window, we then get the frame ready.
The frame is now ready to install the Fakro roof windows.
We then commence work on installing the Fakro roof windows. You can see these are quite large.
The Fakro roof windows are now in place, now its time to put the window sashes into place.
All done and fitted, one skylight replaced with two lovely Fakro roof windows. All that is needed now is a little cosmetic work (plasterboard and plastering)
