Installation guides

It's vital you install your new roof window, skylight, dome or sun tunnel correctly to ensure it's waterproof, durable and effective.

VELUX has a handy Find An Installer map available on its website so you can find a VELUX approved installer in your area. Otherwise, we suggest you use a service such as TrustATrader.com or RatedPeople to find a local tradesman.

Below is a selection of "how to..." videos for products we sell at Sterlingbuild. We also provide links to our YouTube playlists for other fitting guides from the brands on offer.
