When undertaking a loft conversion, the aspect of generating light in an area which originally did not have any is an important one. It’s no good having a loft conversion done on your home to enable a new bedroom to go in, without adding additional windows in to the roof to allow natural light to shine in.

If you are considering which type of windows to install in your roof for your loft conversion, then you really can’t go past VELUX who are a Danish company that have been specialising in windows and skylights for your loft conversion since 1941, when Villum Kann Rasmussen founded the company after he first spotted the opportunities for developing cheap, useful living space in the attic space of houses. Since then, VELUX has gone on to make many new developments in the production of windows and skylights and are a leading company in their field.

There are numerous types of VELUX roof windows you can choose from to suit your home, including Centre-Pivot Roof Windows, Top-Hung Roof Windows, Electric Roof Windows (for when the window is out of reach – these high tech windows will open and close at the touch of a button), Vertical Combinations (a combination of vertical windows and Centre-Pivot Roof Windows which enhance the possibilities for additional views and daylight), Flat Roof Windows, Conservation Roof Windows (great for older style homes as they keep within the style and are designed to blend in perfectly) and Skylight Roof Windows.

Installing a VELUX roof window is designed to be as straight forward as possible, however because installing any windows for a loft conversion means working on the outside of a roof, it’s a good idea to hire a professional VELUX roof window installer as they’re trained and experienced in working in this sort of situation. You also need to ensure that there are absolutely no gaps surrounding your VELUX window, as rain water will easily find any and make its way in to your new loft extension. Don’t worry though, as it’s fairly easy to find VELUX installers in your area, and many loft conversion companies are used to working with VELUX windows as well – such as Warmer’s Lofts, who are a great choice to use if you’re in the West Midlands area as they’re also experienced VELUX fitters. In particular, they cover Tipton, Tamworth, Warwick, Coventry, Birmingham, Solihull, Walsall, Telford and Oldbury.

Another detail to watch out for when wanting to have VELUX windows installed in your roof is any planning permission requirements or other regulations that need to be approved by your local authority. This is also why using professional VELUX fitters is a good idea, as they’ll have good working knowledge of any consents you may need from your local authority in regards installing windows in your roof and any other such modifications you may be thinking of making. If you’re in the West Midlands area and would like VELUX windows fitted in your roof, or if you’re thinking of a complete loft conversion, then give Warmer’s Lofts a call today on 0800 270 7616.
