24/09/2021: Sussex Bungalow Loft Transformation with 2 Velux Windows

This bungalow close to our base in Sussex has a spacious loft that could be put to so many uses, if only there was more light available. The pitched roof over the entrance porch ate into the roof space somewhat but luckily, Velux windows come in a huge variety of shapes and sizes so we were able to make up for the lack of height by using a centre pivoted window with a wide aspect ratio to maximise the glazed area.

On the adjacent roof panel, there was no such problem, so a larger window overall with a top hinge was chosen to give the best view and ventilation. Unlike the smaller window, which is overlooked, so required obscured glass, this window faced the front of the property with an unobserved aspect and uninterrupted view, so high efficiency clear glazing was the choice.

Velux's standard EDW flashing finished the job outside, making sure that while the maximum light is being let in, the weather is kept well and truly out. If you have a space that could be more useful with more light, give us a call or click in the header of any page to email us. We are always happy to advise on the best Velux installation to suit any application.
