Velux Felt Collar
Replace and upgrade your VELUX windows

Your VELUX window has finally reached the end of its working life.  But look on the "bright" side, you now have the option to upgrade.  A standard new generation equivelent will be an improvement over any window more than 5 years old although we replace VELUX windows that are at least 25 years old and still functioning.  A typical replacement installation of 1 to 5 windows is usually complete in 1 day with little disruption to you or your property.

How to find your VELUX product code

In most VELUX windows the product code can be found on the top edge of the window sash. You will need to open the window to view the product code.

If you cannot open your window then provide us with the size of the window frame internally.  

All pitched roof windows will have a code starting with GGL, GPL, GGU etc followed by one to four numbers & letters. The combination of these letters and numbers make up most of the details. Any remaining numbers are related to the glazing and batch numbers.  As you are replacing the window the existing glazing code is usually irrelevant.
