What is a roof window? 

A roof window is a window that opens outward and is built as part of the roof design. Roof windows are often confused with skylights but a roof window is different in a few ways:

  • A roof window is often used when the property owner desires fresh air and light.
  • Roof windows are usually much larger than skylights which means they provide a wider view of the sky above.
  • Another distinguishing factor of a roof window is, it can be open as opposed to skylights that are typically stationary.
  • With certain designs of roof windows, some of the glazed panels can be retracted to allow fresh and natural lighting through the window.
  • Roof windows are typically included in the original/construction of a building but can be added to an existing structure if the slope of the roof and the framework makes it possible for roof windows to be installed. A lot of manufacturers offer prefabricated windows for this kind of addition that can be installed in a quick couple of hours.
  • Roof windows are popular choices for a lot of major national housebuilders because they are reliable, robust and offer great value for money. In addition, because roof windows standard sizes and specifications, they can easily be bought off the shelf.

Top hung 

A top hung window is a great alternative to a centre pivot window. Top hung windows open outward to provide an unobstructed view out of a room. Top hung windows also give the illusion of space, with more light, smaller rooms appear larger.

Top hung windows are especially great in small spaces, you can have whatever furniture you want underneath the window and make the most of all available space.

Velux flashings 

Flashings are an integral part of a roof window. Without flashings being installed, the probability of a window having a leakage is high. Water leakage is often hidden in the roof cavity, which means they are harder to spot and would only be noticed when it is too late. If this happens, you will spend a lot of money and time fixing the water leak damages to your roof. To avoid this, Velux flashings kits can be integrated with your Velux roof windows, to make it completely watertight, regardless of weather condition.

To help prolong the longevity of your Velux windows, we can provide you with Velux maintenance kits that contain foam pads and replace filters.

Are Velux windows self-cleaning?

Our Velux windows can be cleaned easily with just water and no detergent. The Velux windows we supply have a chemical coating that breaks down dirt on a window when it reacts with UV rays.

Do Velux windows feature triple vents?

Velux roof windows are proof that a closed window doesn't mean you won't get adequate ventilation. All our windows have a unique ventilation flap, which makes it possible for fresh air to come in even though the window is closed. This means the temperature in a room would be optimal, even if you can't open the window.

Can Velux windows be fixed in a flat roof?

Yes. It is a common misconception that a Velux window cannot be installed on a flat ceiling but the opposite is the case. Velux windows can be added to a flat roof to provide ventilation and a source of natural light.

How long will it take to install my Velux window?

This would depend on the amount of installation work and the installation process used. Typically it would take anywhere between one or two days.

What are the materials used to make skylights?

Glass is one of the major things used in creating Velux skylights because they are energy efficient and do not deteriorate as quickly as plastic. It is, however, possible to have energy-efficient skylights in durable plastic double domes because of the larger opening size required for this type for commercial skylights.

Would I need planning permission to install a roof window?

Installing the roof window in an existing roof is classified as a minor alteration and is seen as a thermal structural alteration. An external door/window is called a controlled-fitting under building regulations and because of this classification, there are certain standards as outlined by the regulation code that has to be met before that door or window is replaced. One of the ways to not have to deal with the confusion that comes with this is to engage the services of a registered installer (registered with the relevant competence scheme like the Velux installer partnership). If you engage the services of a registered installer, they will already have the authorisation to carry out the work in compliance with building regulations without having to run it by local authority building control. After the work has been completed, a certificate of completion will be given to you by the registered installer to show the work was carried out by a registered contractor. Saving you money on building control fees and reducing the cost of the entire project significantly.

What is GPL Velux and GGL Velux?

Top hung (GPL) is recommended by Velux for lower-level installation such as shallow roof pitches. GPL is manually operated and is great for escape purposes. The centre pivot (GGL) is recommended for higher reach windows and just like the GPL it is also manually operated.
