The installation process is straight forward and is performed in this order:
The aperture is measured and drawn onto the ceiling.
Gyprock within the aperture is removed.
The ceiling is strengthened.
The lightwell is constructed.
The roof opened and the Skylight/s is/are positioned and flashed to make waterproof.
Gyprock is used to line the lightwell frame.
For strength and durability we use a combination of structural, treated timber, steel stud and track framing with suitable fixings.
Variables that affect installation and pricing include:
- Roof pitch,
- roof material,
- type of roof construction,
- interior light shaft depth and shape,
- skylight/s selected, and
- weather etc.
