your mileage may vary

ie - different criteria / results etc - you may disagree.



bloody expensive for a rooflight I thought. Even if they are original - and its only one of them.

Not looking to buy them. Have a few lying around was wondering if they had much value. Will watch the auction & see if they sell.

Thats what I though but some people have to use them on older buildings. About the same as a new velux type one. Hopefully Gervase will be along soon to give his opinion.

If original it's a good price, and the main company that does repro versions charges more than that. If you've got some to sell you may be better off selling through Salvo than eBay however.
There will always be a market for such thing, as people in conservation areas or listed buildings can't just put a Velux in when they do an attic conversion (thankfully!).[/i]

Cool, Thanks for that link.

Yup, people with listed buildings would not be able to use veluxes - would think original rooflights might be quite scarce.

smug/worried smiley - I've got two 6-paned rooflights that are in reasonably nick (TFFT) at the mo. Wouldn't like to have to source replacements.
