Hi,
I have 3 x massive velux windows to install (SK06) on to a new roof.

In the instructions it mentions installing the window, squaring it up to the frame and fixing the frame. The window is then removed and the flashing etc installed. The window is then fitted for a final time.

Can I only fit the window once? Is it possible to complete the flashing kit install with the glass in place?

Thanks!

from outside its easy enough to fit and not take the glass out.
from inside is possible but trickier.

an extra pair of hands makes an sk06 easier ...

Fancy helping Sunday? haha.

Thanks a lot. The roof is 20 degrees so perfectly possible to do everything from outside!

That's a relief it only needs to go in once...

Hey SpecialK, offer Datarbal £400 and I'm sure he would skip church for one day. At least you know that they were being fitted correctly.

Very tempting! I am considering getting a cost from a roofer to fit them!
If you fancy it datarebel give me a PM (I'm just past pompey). You can laugh at my flashing too then...

Try barthy on here he's from around there .
He's seems to know his stuff and I'm guessing he may do velux
