Installation advice

We think it is relatively easy to install our roof windows as everything can be done from inside the property, however, ease of installation will always depend on your specific circumstances. Before you start the installation, there are a list of things that you need to take into consideration:

  • Are you installing your roof window into a new building?
  • Is this new build without a covered roof and without finished masonry?
  • Is it an established or inhabited house?
  • Does the roof have modern tiles or have you got a 100 year old slate roof?

We have organised these assembly instructions so that you can find exactly the right sections you need for your roof quickly. But should you have any concerns, you should seek the advice and assistance of a professional roofer because incorrect roofing and building work can affect the stability of the roof.

We can also advise you about the way to attach a snow guard to your roof window to avoid possible damage from snow.
