What do you need to know about skylight or VELUX window installations?
Installing a skylight or VELUX window can add a lot of warmth to a room and help you make the most of your space. They are becoming more popular in Britain: skylights can often add a lot of value to a property. If you have the budget you should also consider additional options such as electronic controls or even smart sensors that can make a window open or close based on a room’s temperature. It is unlikely that you will need planning permission to install a skylight or new windows, unless your property is in a conservation area or is a listed building, in which case you should consult with your local council or discuss it with a tradesman.
The cost of having a skylight or VELUX window installed will primarily depend on size. Position is important as well: an assessment may reveal the need for additional roof timbers or supports in order to install your new unit safely. Installing a VELUX window will usually cost between £400 and £700, while a skylight can cost over £1000 to install. Prices will fluctuate not just based on the unit but on your location in the UK, so take the time to collect several quotes to compare. Your installer should also be able to provide a guarantee for their work.
A skylight or VELUX window will need to be installed safely and security: you do not want glass falling out of its frames. Look over the experience and qualifications of your potential tradesmen while getting quotes. Have they worked with properties similar to yours, and with similar units? A professional should be able to provide this information, in addition to customer reviews. Finally, make sure that any tradesmen you hire are fully covered against accidental damage and liabilities.
