One of the most common brands used for putting a skylight window on a flat roof is the Velux brand. They are a high-quality brand that has been in the business for years, which means you can rest assured of the quality of their flat roof windows.
The most common reason for a skylight or window to your flat roof is to let natural light into the area. It’s cheaper than having a light on the whole time in there; it is healthier, and most importantly, there will be light every day in the area, which will stop algae, moss or damp developing.
You can choose a basic skylight that pushes up and down, or you can opt for a flip and spin style window which completely opens up, which can be handy if you want to vent the area.
Rooftop windows and skylights can give several advantages to having installed on your flat roof. They can solve certain issues in stuffy, cold or dark rooms, which can become problems.
They add natural light.
The biggest benefit of skylights is how they let natural light into your space. And with that light comes solar heat. Why does that matter to you? Natural light is known to improve mood and even help with performance in workplaces. And heating your home with sunlight can save on heating costs during the chilly seasons.
Fresh air and better ventilation
Skylight windows can open to let in the fresh air. This helps with cross ventilation in stuffy rooms, freshens up the air and cools down your living spaces without turning on the air conditioner.
As we mentioned above, sunlight can heat your spaces, and cross ventilation can cool them down. Each can cut down on your energy costs (make sure to install a skylight that’s leak-proof and has laminated glass!)
It makes a room feel bigger.
Like adding mirrors on the walls, skylights can make a room “feel bigger” and more spacious. Plus, you can get a view of the night sky or nature during the day.
