Roof Windows

Loft conversion across Scotland and the north of England are increasingly common as more homeowners are choosing to extend and convert, rather than sell.

If you are thinking of extending into your loft, and using the space as a room – whether a bedroom or day room – then you need to pay careful consideration to roof or loft windows.

What is the best roof window?

There is no easy answer to this as it depends on two variable factors:

  • Budget
  • Features such as style and design

Many roof windows have guarantees on them too but make sure when you are choosing the manufacturer that you get the best for your money!

Choosing the right roof window

Budget dictates the brand and size of your roof window but consult an experienced company such as Graham Roofing (Scotland) Ltd BEFORE you buy.

Different roofing materials will require a different style of window, as well as leadwork or other flashing so that forms a complete, waterproof seal. An ill-fitting window will lead to leaks, possible causing extensive damage in the roof itself.

Planning regulations in some parts of Scotland and areas of the north of England, also dictate the style of roof windows; some will need to ‘low profile’; in other words, the roof window needs to sit in the roof as opposed to on the outside, giving a more streamlined appearance. Conservation areas usually stipulate this style of window.
