When designing and fabricating our skylights, we design features that combats four main fears about skylights:
1. Leaks and Condensation
Fakro deck mounted skylights have a lined underside gasket for greater protection for leaks and condensation. When the Fakro skylight is positioned over the roof opening, the gasket provides a greater seal to the roof deck. In addition, the water and ice shield applied during installation, will water proof the skylight, making moisture unable to penetrate.
Fakro skylights are ideal for most rooms in your home, they provide the beauty of natural light whilst filtering harmful UV rays.
Installation made easy, each Fakro roof window or skylight comes with a cut out template, which allows you to accurately assess where to position and cut the rough opening. In addition, full installation videos are also available on line.
Two metal pins are included, which are fitted to your skylight to centre and make square over the hole you have cut, allowing for one person to implement installation. Once the skylight is in place over the opening, the pins hold your skylight in place, ready to fix it to your roof.
Bracket-free installation means that they are not required and that the supplied screws secure the skylight directly onto your joists of your roof, through the predrilled holes in your skylight frame.
Once, the above is completed, you are ready to line the skylight with your preferred water and ice shield, followed by your choice of Fakro step or high profile flashing. For additional insulation, thermal flashing is available.
Fakro residential skylights have a limited lifetime warranty. With correct installation and frequent maintenance, Fakro skylights are guaranteed to meet or exceed your expectations.
