    Does any body know if you can buy some sort of screens for the skylights to stop draughts in the chilly period?Thinking of cutting and taping up the internal silver screens i bought but never use.

    Stick some bubble wrap up there and sell the screens ::bigsmile: I use the internals when parked up at home to stop sun fading cushions :winky:

    Bubble wrap is the way forward!

    Sandwich it between the skylight and existing blind.:thumb:

    You shouldn't have a draught though. Although I know some manufacturers fit caravan skylights which are draughty!:whatthe:

    Its not so much draughts but to stop the heat rising straight out of the vents.

    Just saw your trade Dave!

    Any chance you can book your skylight insulation through as a job on the Government free insulation scheme?!::bigsmile:
