Why add roof windows?
A minor upgrade with a huge effectAll spaces can be transformed entirely with natural daylight from roof windows. There's a common misconception that installing roof windows is much more costly than other solutions and that you will live on a construction site for months. Actually, it's a straightforward and relatively minor procedure with enormous effects!
Transform your space with daylight from above
Do you have the décor elements neatly picked out, or have you carefully chosen the colours on your walls? With daylight from above, your detailed colour scheme will stand out like never before. Your decor will become an integral part of your space - just like it was intended to be. Bringing in more natural light from above can have several transformational effects. You'll feel closer to the outside and bring a mindful, relaxed atmosphere to any room.
In our Stories section, you'll find multiple cases, from kitchen and bathroom transformations to loft extensions and space improvements. Explore these for inspiration for your project!

Save costsEnergy 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.

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.
