Why add roof windows?

Why indeed! The list is long: there are many proven positive effects connected to increased natural light. Roof windows are a manageable and relatively easy way to create a ‘new’ space while reaping the benefits of more daylight.

Save costs

Energy costs have been a frequent topic of discussion lately. Installing roof windows can save money on your utility bill. Artificial light can be costly, especially during the darker seasons. Prolong the hours before switching on the lights - natural daylight can make a big difference as roof windows capture the sun much longer than vertical windows. They are an excellent asset for your eyes and energy bill.

Improve mental and physical well-being

We spend around 90% of our time indoors. That's why it is essential to have a healthy indoor environment. Roof windows can help you achieve a better night's sleep, improve your productivity, increase air indoor quality... and as you probably know: the sun is a great source of Vitamin D.

How long does it take to install a roof window?

Installations can take between 1 and 3 days for the rooftop, and half a day per window to complete the interior.

As always, it depends on the roof type: flat, pitched, or low-pitched.
