Pitched Roof & Loft Windows

Whether you're building from scratch or refurbishing your existing property, install a high-quality pitched roof window which is tailored exactly how you need it. Choose between the most trusted and well-known brands in the window industry as well as shapes, sizes, window openings, glazing and colour. Opt for quad-glazed PassivHaus approved pitched roof windows, white-painted centre pivot electric windows or even a balcony window to give your project an attractive twist. 

Types of Roof Windows

There are three main types of roof windows: electric, manual and solar. Each of these has their very own applications, or areas of installation, that they may be more beneficial for. Electric roof windows for example are perfect for installation in higher ceilings or hard to reach areas. If opening a window for you typically involves climbing over furniture, a kitchen side, or using an opening pole, electric windows are for you. Electric roof windows are opened with a remote control from anywhere in your home, and they automatically close if they detect rain. They also come with a whole host of other features including the fact that they’re programmable to open and close at certain times of the day, and they can be paired with smart devices to open or close if, for example, the temperature hits a certain figure.

Manual windows are what everyone commonly thinks of when we say roof window. It’s a window that is opened manually from inside the home and then closed manually too. These are ideal for easy to reach locations that mean that opening and closing the window isn’t particularly strenuous. They can be perfect for budget-builds and low-cost constructions!

Solar windows are like electric windows in that they can be programmed, they close automatically on detection of rain, and they can be opened or closed remotely from anywhere in the house. The only difference is that, as the name suggests, these are powered from the sun and don’t need to be plugged into a mains supply. Solar roof windows are perfect for the eco-conscious home owner who wants the benefits of an electric roof window without paying for the electricity!

Benefits of Roof Windows

Roof windows are so beneficial to the homeowner or tenant as they let in natural light which is very important for human, and animal, health. By installing a roof window, you can let in light in places you might not have thought possible, and you can improve your home with an extension in the loft or kitchen without losing natural light in the existing room. If for example you have a side extension coming out from your kitchen, the addition of a roof window will increase natural daylight and add a gorgeous talking point too. Not only are roof windows beneficial for light but they’re beneficial for ventilation too. There’s nothing like some fresh air to bring the outdoors in and to get rid of any cooking smells.

Roof Window Features

Several features are available to those who are opting to purchase a roof window. Whether you’re opting for electric, manual or solar you can also upgrade for even more features. Specialist glazing such as acoustic glazing, triple glazing or even opaque glazing for privacy in bathrooms and bedrooms.

Conservation windows are designed to effortlessly blend in to the roofscape and their surroundings to appease listed building officers and heritage institutions.
