What are Velux windows?Velux Window installation in Grimsby

Before we consider the benefits of Velux windows, let’s take a closer look at what they are. Velux windows are a brand of roof windows that are designed to bring light and ventilation into a space. They are suitable for both pitched and flat roofs, making them a versatile option for a wide range of properties. Velux windows are well-known for their high standard of craftsmanship, with their durable construction ensuring they deliver excellent longevity.

5 reasons to install Velux windows

Maximise natural light

One of the biggest benefits of Velux windows is that they maximise natural light brilliantly. When positioned appropriately on roofs, these windows allow plenty of sunlight into a room throughout the day. This creates a lighter, brighter space for work or leisure activities, reducing the need for artificial lighting. As well as cutting your energy costs, bathing a room in natural light also improves its visual appeal. The result is a much more pleasant and welcoming environment.

Boost energy efficiency

Installing Velux windows can help to make your home more energy efficient. As mentioned above, these windows can bring large amounts of natural light into a room, reducing the need for artificial lighting and heating, especially during daylight hours. This not only contributes to a more eco-friendly lifestyle but can deliver real energy savings, cutting your bills considerably. 

Many types of Velux windows offer advanced glazing options that provide effective insulation, helping to regulate indoor temperatures. This can help to minimise heat loss in colder months and prevent excess heat gain in the warmer seasons. At a time when energy costs are rocketing, it makes sense that more and more of us are looking for ways to improve the energy efficiency of our homes. 

Provide ventilation 

Velux windows also provide effective ventilation, helping to maintain a fresh and healthy indoor environment. These windows can be easily opened, enabling the exchange of stale air with fresh air from the outdoors. This helps to reduce the risk of mould, mildew and other pollutants, ensuring that the living space remains not only aesthetically pleasing but also supports overall well-being. Velux windows are particularly useful in kitchens and bathrooms since ventilation in these spaces is crucial. 

Aesthetic appeal

When talking about the benefits of Velux windows, people often focus on their ability to illuminate and ventilate a space. However, let’s not forget that they are also very aesthetically appealing, with their stylish appearance making them suitable for a wide range of properties. These windows come in different designs and with various customisation options, with different frame finishes and glazing types to choose from. At Raven Roofing, we can help you choose the perfect Velux windows for your home or office. 

Increase property value 

If you’re looking to boost the value of your property, you may want to consider installing Velux windows. Home buyers are increasingly attracted to properties with well-designed Velux windows since they help to make rooms brighter and more stylish. They also offer the potential for reduced energy costs too, which can be an attractive selling point in 2024. 

Keep in mind that if you do want to install Velux windows with the aim of increasing your property’s value, it’s important that the work is carried out to an extremely high standard. You can ensure that this is the case by hiring the services of a professional installer of Velux windows. Hiring a contractor who has knowledge and expertise in Velux window installations ensures that the windows look and perform their very best, allowing them to add value to your property.

Velux windows for loft conversions 

Velux windows are the ideal choice for loft conversions, combining aesthetics, functionality, and practicality brilliantly to transform loft spaces into bright, inviting, and habitable areas. Not only do they bring a great amount of sunlight into the room when strategically positioned on the roof but they offer ventilation too, which is useful since lofts can sometimes become stuffy spaces with limited airflow. Additionally, Velux windows are designed to offer privacy whilst still providing stunning views of the sky and surroundings.

We were dreading the bill but Raven Roofing were very reasonable (not sure if I'm allowed to say how much).The scaffolding arrived and was put up promptly, Raven Roofing arriving a couple of days later to start work, the only delays were due to bad weather and Raven Roofing contacted us to let us know about any delays which we really liked, usually builders don't bother. Raven roofing were polite, friendly and courteous at all times.Out roof was completely stripped and replaced in a week, all rubbish was removed and the gardens left looking tidy.The roof itself looks fantastic...we are very very pleased and highly recommend Raven Roofing.js_loader
