Removing a Velux flashing

Recommended Posts

We may need to move a recently installed Velux window down the roof slightly due to it being in the wrong place ....

 

Does anyone know if it's reasonably easy to remove the flashing as it clips into place as I understand it. Ideally I want it removed intact as I don't want to have to buy a new one ..!!

should be easy enough, Is it one of the new ones with the 2" foam surround, If so I cant help with that part but the rest should be mainly held together with screws, there are only 2 clips that come undone fairly easy that i know of, at least on mine there were

Just going to blatantly hijack this thread.  :ph34r:

This velux says 2 ventilation 'points'. Anyone know if they're still rainproof on the first 'click' ? Want to fit one in the attic I did for my boy last Xmas. Haven't got room for a bigger one as the perlins are still there and it's not a very high roof / tall room :/. I don't want the pivot type as it'll likely end up in the stairwell at the top of the stairs as the perlins are cut out there. Ideally I'd want a smaller window, anyone know where I'd get smaller without a big budget?

Do you need it to ventilate or just for some light? If you only need light. You could adapt a light tunnel of some form as they go down to 10" square. 

 

That said you would have to try and find a second hand one as they are £200+ New.

Nick, I've got the bigger version of that window in the current attic. (clambers up stairs) First position on the stay opens it 30mm but there aint much overlap so blown rain would be an issue.
