Roof Windows

By Posted in - Exterior Products & Windows & Black Pine Resources on September 4th, 2020
Roof windows are a great way to increase the amount of light and ventilation in your home. Options are available in a range of sizes as well as partial opening with some rain protection.  

Incorporating roof windows into a design or retrofitting, will completely alter the look and feel of a room and are an ideal window solution for loft conversions, attics, home extensions and dark areas.  

There are also a number of features to choose from including solar sensors that automatically shut the window if it rains, integrated blinds, double glazing, and if installed within reach can even be rotated to clean the glass from inside.  

Always ensure roof windows are installed by an approved installer.   Roof windows have two components: the window itself and the flashing kit.

The flashing kit is the part that provides you with the ability to fix the window to your roof and ensure it is watertight. The seal is an incredibly important part of this component.

Recessed or low-profile flashing and conservation style flashing are just some of the types available.
