What Are Skylights?
The definition of` what a skylight is, is broad, and simply describes them as ‘a window set in a roof or ceiling at the same angle’. Skylights can be used in both pitched and flat roofs and there are a variety of sizes and styles available, depending on your preference and budget. These could include:
Flat Roof Skylights
Flat roof skylights can be used in a number of ways, including, to add interest and height as well as to let in light and offer more ventilation. You can choose from flat roof lanterns and pyramids that will give you a fantastic view of the sky above. Or perhaps you would prefer a domed roof light, which allows the rainwater to easily slide off the unit. You could even opt for a walk-on skylight, which makes an amazing centrepiece in any home and can be installed externally on your flat roof or as a stunning internal feature.
Pitched Roof Skylights
These are the most common types of skylights, with Velux being one of the most popular. You can opt for centre-pivot roof skylights, which offer easy operation with a choice of manual, electrical or solar powered openings. Less common place but equally as attractive are top hung roof windows, which do not enter the room when opening and work well in eye-level installations.
Whatever type of skylight you are looking for, Ideal Windows can find the best one to suit your home or business in Guildford. If you are considering a loft conversion, skylights are vital to ensure that your new space is well ventilated. With this in mind, all of our roof units are easy to open and are fully weatherproof.
