The best low cost roof window

Date Posted: 20 June 2016


Today, we ask Phil about the best low cost roof window 

When it comes to deciding which roof window to go for, you have many factors to consider. You have to think about how much light do you need to get through the window, what level of insulation do you need to keep your home energy efficient.  We also recommend that when you want to know what size or how many roof windows to install, you calculate 10% of the entire floor area. You should also think about how much are you prepared to spend and how many roof windows you’re going to need to get the light and look that you want from your home improvements. These are all important things to consider when making your choice and getting the best out of your roof windows. 


What’s the best low cost roof window around at the moment?  

There are some really good low cost roof window options available but you really can’t go wrong with the Luctis centre-pivot timber roof windowIt’s super value for money and works with any sloping roof from 15-80 degrees. 

What’s more, it’s easy to install, requires very few tools, it’s light in weight too and comes with toughened double glazed glass and knot free wood frame and sash.  


Does a low cost roof window choice cheapen the look of the room? 

Absolutely not, low cost roof windows still provide a safe and tidy look to a loft conversion or upstairs room with a sloped roof. You can work with the interior design of the room to turn the wooden frame and sash into a design feature.  

Pine and oak furniture are hugely popular at the moment and if you’re keen on DIY and environmentally aware, you could even up-cycle. There are loads of bargains to be had on second hand furniture and it’s a great way to redecorate and add a personal touch to a loft room.
