Skylights / Roof Windows FAQ's:

What's the difference between a skylight and a VELUX?

Essentially, a skylight is a type of window that's set up on the roof of a structure with the purpose of permitting natural light to come in. On the other hand, a Velux window is a type of window produced by the Velux company, hence the name.

What should I look for in a good skylight?

Skylights can be constructed with either plastic or glass glazing, which can be single, double, or triple-coated. Plastic is the most economical option, but it permits more UV rays to penetrate than other types. Glass, on the other hand, is more costly but offers a superior visual appearance.

Is it a good idea to put in skylight?

Placing a skylight on the northern side of your residence can offer refreshing, indirect sunlight. Conversely, a skylight situated on the southern side can provide indirect solar warmth during the winter months. Nonetheless, it is essential to shade the skylight in the summer season to avoid excessive heat buildup. Skylights located on the eastern or western sides can provide either morning or afternoon warmth.

What is the drawback of skylight?

An often disregarded downside of installing a skylight is that it has the potential to harm your furnishings by exposing them to sun damage. Nevertheless, contemporary skylights usually include a Low-E coating that regulates heat and UV radiation.

How much does a rooflight cost UK?

Based on recent findings from trades websites, the typical expense for installing a rooflight in the UK falls in the range of £800 to £1,100. This figure encompasses the cost of materials, labor time, and the use of machinery and equipment.
