I am fed up climbing up the outside of my house to do roof repairs (Its a
very big, very old roof). I am going to cut an access panel in the flat roof
part so that I can get access from the loft space.
Does any one have any experience of installing a skylight in a flat roof ? I
have looked at some commercial options (e.g. Velux) but they are either very
expensive or do not come small enough for my needs. The space I have to play
with between roof trusses and bracing limits the access to 370mm by 650mm
which is tight but big enough for me.
Obvious problems are getting an angle to run off water, the design of the
removeable top and making it sturdy enough for a svelte 15 stoner like
myself to haul through.
Any thoughts or useful sites to visit would be appreciated.
