Chris Maggs Roofing Services supplies and installs Velux windows in and around the Leeds area. These fantastic products, which are manufactured and sold in over 35 countries worldwide, bring sunlight and air directly into your home. They’re both stylish and functional, and can fulfil a wide range of purposes. Below, we’ve run through a few of the most popular types of Velux windows that we’ve fit within domestic and commercial properties around Leeds.
The below products are ideal for conventional, pitched roofs around Leeds. They’re most commonly installed as part of a loft conversion or upgrade, to ensure that a space doesn’t feel too dim or suffocating.
Centre-pivot Roof Windows – Easy to open and close even when furniture is placed underneath them, centre-pivot Velux windows are also easy and safe to clean as the outside pane can be rotated by 180 degrees. A very popular option amongst our Leeds customers.
Top-hung Roof Windows – A stylish handle at the bottom of the window allows for seamless operation. These Velux windows open outward to offer fantastic panoramic views of your surroundings.
Velux Integra Roof Windows – These innovative Velux windows are remote-controlled and can be powered by either a conventional electrical connection or solar power. A control pad that comes with the product allows you to control blinds, roller shutters and the window itself from anywhere in the house.
Special Function Roof Windows – Velux also makes special function windows that offer maximum noise reduction or security, if your Leeds home / commercial premises is at heightened risk of burglary.
We can also supply and install combinations of sloping / vertical Velux windows that will maximise the amount of light and air your property receives.
Velux also makes windows tailored to flat roofs. These include their popular curved glass roof light and flat glass roof light, which feature up to 6mm scratch-resistant glazing and a distinctly modern aesthetic. Commercial customers who want to maximise their property’s security can do so by investing in Velux windows with an impact resistant polycarbonate dome that surrounds the glass.
The manufacturer has also created two specialist flat roof windows, the Velux smoke vent dome and Velux emergency exit dome. The former automatically opens to allow harmful gasses and smoke out of the property, while the latter has a hatch-like opening mechanism that enables evacuation in case of an emergency.
For a more dramatic solution to bringing a little bit of the outside, inside – consider Velux’s modular skylight systems. Available in both domestic and commercial configurations, these products replace large portions of your flat roof with beautiful Velux windows. They can really transform a space, providing stunning views of the blue sky above, while ensuring your property is flooded with light.
With integrated shutters/blinds, you’ll have full control over how much light gets in at any given time, either manually or via a remote control. For more information about how modular skylight systems can transform your home or commercial premises, contact Chris Maggs, the Leeds area’s expert in Velux windows.
In addition to traditional Velux windows, we install the manufacturer’s popular line of sun tunnels, which allow natural light into stairwells, bathrooms, corridors and cupboards. They are an ideal solution for both flat and pitched roofs, in areas where there isn’t space for standard Velux windows.
Our Leeds-based team install both flex sun tunnels and rigid sun tunnels, which fulfil the same purpose but are designed to deal with different angles of roof. They are often subtle and seamless in how they fit within an interior design scheme, but make such a world of difference by illuminating your home.
