17 Mar Are Velux Windows any good?
The average length of time one lives in a property is over 15 years. In that time your family will grow and your needs will change – but your home, for the most part, won’t.
In the hunt for ways to create more space and improve your quality of living, you’ve probably heard about Velux windows – Velux windows are simply windows which are located on the roof of your property. The main benefit being that more natural daylight can flood the property.
But are Velux windows any good? And, are they the right choice for you?
First of all, let’s address Velux. Velux is the world’s leading manufacturer of roof windows with an excellent reputation in the roofing industry. Their windows can be found installed on all kinds of properties up and down Great Britain.

There are a wide variety of windows and skylights available from Velux. Here’s a run-down of the main benefits of Velux windows over other windows for the average homeowner:
