1 minuut


First replaced 2 old Velux skylights with 2 Velux GGU skylights, which I then neatly refinished with primed plywood. Neatly painted at the end.

Replacing and finishing skylights

For this project I first ordered 2 new skylights from Velux. I chose the MK04 GGU incl. outdoor sun blinds. However, while installing the windows I soon discovered that the old paneling had to be removed because the old frame was glued. The slots where the paneling would fit into the new frame are 12mm. This is why I chose 12mm plywood for the vertical slats. for the flat slats I chose 9 mm so as not to have a slat too thick on the ceiling. This looks less clumsy.

I had a nice edge milled on the outside with a radius of 4 mm, for a nice finish. After unscrewing everything was neatly plastered, sanded and painted.

The dimensions of the project
