Of course, larger windows let in more daylight, but it is worth considering the option of using more, smaller windows, which can give better overall results (see pictures).
The less steep the roof pitch, the longer the window you will need.
If the lining reveals are not splayed, warm air can get trapped and cause condensation. However, the appropriate angle of the lining guarantees the free circulation of warm air in the room.
In addition to interior lighting and construction planning, you also need to consider how roof windows affect the exterior view of your home. We must think about the location of roof windows relative to existing windows. We need to find a balance between the need for indoor lighting and outdoor architecture. By doing so, our windows will have an elegant appearance from the outside and meet our needs inside the house.
We recommend installing the snow shield above the roof window, because it can protect it from permanent damage.
Before choosing the size of the window, we must consider the structural integrity of the roof. Most roofs are suitable for installing roof windows, but it can happen that some assembled trusses cannot be cut without a tried and tested replacement solution.
If there is any doubt as to which beam can be cut, please consult a specialist before starting work.
