Frequently Asked Questions


Q:What is the minimum and maximum roof pitch the window can be fitted to?
A: The window can be fitted to any pitch from 5° to 45°.

Q: What is the minimum and maximum thickness of roof material the window can fit to?
A: The skylight comes with 40mm bolts to fit a timber thickness up to 15mm, however we can also supply 50mm bolts for timber up to 25mm.

Q: What size is the window?
A: The window is approximately 500x500cm on the outside.

Q: What space do I need between the rafters on the roof?
A: There needs to be a minimum space of 500mm between the rafters to accommodate the width of the skylight window.

Q: My roof is OSB is this still suitable?
A: Yes, the window can be bolted to any material including OSB, chipboard, tongue & groove, or wooden planks.

Q: What about structural integrity?
A: The window is made from robust extruded aluminium and is securely bolted so there is no loss of structural integrity.

Q: Do I need any special tools or skills to fit one?
A: No special skills or tools are required, and any competent DIY’er can install the window in less than 2 hours.

Q: Do I have to climb on the outside of my roof to install?
A: No, you definitely don't need to climb on your roof, the window can be entirely installed from the inside.

Q: Where is the best place to fit my window?
A: Ideally, as near to the top ridge line as possible. Make sure it doesn't cross a vertical joint in your felt line or clash with an internal purlin. 

Q: My felt runs horizontally. Is this OK?
A: Yes, it is perfectly acceptable to fit the window across horizontal felt lines.

Q: Can I fit more than one window to my workshop?
A: Yes, the more the better.

Q: How secure is the window?
A: The window is held closed by a standard casement stay, and can't be opened from the outside. An optional lock is available for more security, and this will allow the window to be secure, even when open. This is ideal if the wind gets up when the skylight is left open and unattended.

Q: Do you supply the sticky glue/sealant with the kit?
A: Yes, you don't need any additional sealant or glue to install the skylight as it comes with an oil based compression gasket which ensures a good seal.

Reviewer: Bruce H. (Shed Installer) from East Lothian   5 Stars
Very Good... and a better product than I expected! ★★★★★ The powder-coated aluminium unit is solid and heavy, and the the glazing is very rigid (I thought it was glass when I saw it, but apparently it's thick acrylic). The window unit is supplied pre-assembled in factory, and is well made. The wooden trims and and facings are pre-cut and pre-mitred for a neat finish inside, however this is somewhat spoiled by the bolts protruding down into the shed. I opted for the longer 50mm bolts just in case, however I'm now left with long ends that need to be cut, although I'll probably never get round to doing this! The skylight was straightforward enough to fit, but you need to be fairly precise when cutting the hole as the bolts are only about 10mm from the hole. You also need to make sure that your roofing felt doesn't flap about as you cut it, as you definitely wouldn't want it to get damaged. Basically the shed roof is sandwiched between the inner and outer parts of the skylight, so you need to make sure that the bolts are tightened down firmly and evenly. There is a sticky compression seal around the window that stops the rain getting in. I wasn't confident about how watertight this would be, however I've tested it with the garden hose and it works fine. All-in-all, I'm very pleased with the skylight and I'd buy it again. It took a couple of hours to fit, but I'm sure it won't take as long the next time.
