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.

Unlocking the hinge

Locate and press the locking mechanism on each hinge (it should make a click) and separate the sash from the frame.

Final alignment check

Final alignment check

Replace the sash to test that it opens and closes properly. If it is not closing properly it is best to find out at this stage.

Alignment checks

To make sure the frame is set properly, check the gaps at the closure of the sash. If the vertical gaps are parallel with the gap at the bottom in a slightly opened position, then the frame is correctly aligned, and the top brackets can be fixed.

Check alignment
