What is a Velux window?
Velux windows are made from high quality, tough materials which gives them their weather-resistant properties and stylish look. Velux windows have been market leaders for decades.Velux is a well-known and established manufacturer of windows with an impeccable reputation.

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.
What are the advantages of installing Velux windows?
Velux windows are also easy to control, easy to maintain and are highly durable. They are one of the highest quality window products available on the market today. Velux windows are perfect for loft conversions, bringing light to dark spaces, which means you can convert underutilised space into an additional living room, bedrooms, bathrooms and more.
Velux windows are especially ideal for windowless hallways, cupboards, and bathrooms because they open up small spaces. Every homeowner understands that extra square-foot in the house is a valuable commodity and that it is important to make the most of what you have. Velux windows boost natural light and can increase the livable space in a home, which means you can have extra room for a study, an additional bathroom, storage and more.
Installing a Velux window in your home would also improve its value. It will have more lights, acoustic insulation, improved ventilation and superior thermal comfort, all of which are features homebuyers look for. As you can see, installing a Velux window is a very sound investment.

The Velux window products available at Elite Builders London
We have a wide range of Velux roof windows, and they can come in various sizes, finishes and style. Each style providing a distinct aesthetic feature but still functioning to bring more light and air into any space in your building.
Modular Skylight systems
The modular system can be seamlessly installed into the existing design of a home or incorporated into a new design when construction planning is going on. Modular skylight systems are built to draw in natural light into modern flat-roofed homes.
White painted Velux
With the new range of white painted Velux, you can create a brighter, lighter living space. With the white finish, light is reflected back into your home extension or loft conversion. In addition, the white finish will match with other white accents such as doors, windows, ceiling and complement contemporary and even traditional decor.
With the black finish exterior and a vertical centre bar, classic conservation windows are designed to tastefully blend into the roof of your existing building. All our Velux conservation roof windows come in the traditional black conservation style but with the technical superior feature of a modern roof window.
Natural daylight brings the interior of any room to life, in a manner artificial lighting cannot. You can enjoy the changing light at all times of the day and season wherever there is a Velux sun tunnel.
Flat roof windows
Flat roof windows mean that you can easily get in fresh air and daylight into a flat-roofed home.
Center pivot roof windows
Centre pivot roof windows are great for loft conversions, extensions, and home renovation. Velux centre-pivot roof windows are especially great for home extensions. If you would like ventilation and more natural light in your home, you can achieve this with the use of this stylish roof window.
Center pivot roof windows are one of the premium roof windows with a maintenance-free internal finish. Using one will add a contemporary, sleek look to your living space and also give you complete ventilation for your optimum comfort.
These windows are easy to operate because they have a clever top control bar, so the window can be installed lower than a top hung window and provide an excellent view – seated or standing.
Blinds and shutters
Pleated or Venetian? Roller or blackout? You can add the perfect finishing touch to your Velux roof window from our selection of the Velux shutters and blinds. We have one of the biggest range of roof window shutters and blinds, and a selection of fabrics, colours, styles and designs complete to match any space.

At Elite Builders London, we offer a wide selection of Velux accessories. We have insulation products for window touch-ups, accessories to upgrade your windows accessories and more.
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.
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.
Velux flat roof
With the Velux Flat roof range, you get exceptional value for money. A flat roof window is great for flat roof extensions and home renovations. Velux flat roof windows have a unique glass top, and so they draw in twice the amount of daylight than a vertical window, making the room look brighter, more spacious and lighter.
Whether you require a flat roof, dome, a Velux flat roof or a Velux flat glass window, we at Elite Builders London can provide it at very competitive rates. Not only will installing a flat roof window provide natural daylight, but it will also increase the quality of air in your space and give your interior a brand-new look.

With a Velux home automation system installed, you can close your roof windows with just a touch – the number of things you can do with a Velux home automation system is endless.

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.
The centre pivot (GGL) is recommended for higher reach windows and just like the GPL it is also manually operated.
