Roof Windows began to appear in the market place as a result of more and more home owners extending into their loft spaces in order to expand their living space and add value to their properties. The leading brand in Roof Windows, VELUX, was first founded back in 1941 by the Dane, Villum Kann Rasmussen, they have grown from strength to strength ever since and now have a long history of creating high-quality roof windows as well as being innovative and leading the way in the industry.
They have some competition these days though and the likes of FAKRO and Keylite also produce good quality roof windows. VELUX is still the leading brand though and they are continuously enhancing their range with new products - like their Solar Collector hot water system which came out earlier this year. They also now have a sister company called AltaTerra (formerly RoofLITE) which focuses on producing roof windows and accessories for the budget market. The quality is obviously not as high but the cheaper price tag is certainly very attractive to many.
There are a wide range of uses and reasons why people choose to install roof windows in their homes but maximising daylight and ventilation are the most common. Extremely simple to install and operate, roof windows are a fantastic way to enhance and add value to your property. Some people really go all out and utilise roof windows with some incredible results. The likes of the Cabrio Balcony System and VELUX Roof Terraces now allow you to create your very own outdoor space on your roof too.
