Pitched Roof Skylight on Kitchen Extension Roof

Postby GKnill » Fri Jan 20, 2017 11:28 pm


We are looking to install a skylight into a tiled pitched roof extension in the kitchen.

We are struggling to find any reasonably priced skylights that are square or wider than they are tall. Ideally we would like it to be 1200mm wide by 600mm deep.

We don't mind if it is fixed or has a centrally pivoted opening.

First question: has anyone come across anywhere that would supply these at a reasonable price?

Second question: is it possible to rotate an off the shelf skylight by 90 degrees if we could find/have flashing made to suit?

Third question: can standard double glazing units be used for this?

Appreciate any help
