It's Never Been A Better Time To Replace Your Old VELUX Windows

Give your old VELUX windows the update they deserve with a brighter finish and daylight area, replacement glazing or an electric/solar upgrade.

Replacing or upgrading your VELUX roof window is a lot easier than you might think. Now could be the perfect time to breathe new life into your windows and loft.

Whether you are swapping your old VELUX for an identically sized or even slightly bigger window, replacing the glazing, or bringing its functionality up to date, upgrades cause minimal disruption as the windows and parts are replaced in the existing aperture mostly from inside the room. There's no need for any external scaffolding.

Replacing VELUX Windows

VELUX window sizes have not changed much over the last 40 years, so finding a direct replacement for your window is easy. Your new windows can be fitted into the existing aperture within a few hours. Newer VELUX roof windows have larger glazing areas as standard and are 115% more energy efficient.

Should your old pine VELUX roof windows no longer match your modern decor, VELUX white paint and polyurethane finishes will, giving a brighter feel to any room while reflecting more daylight around the space.

For VELUX windows made before April 2001, special EL and EW flashings are essential to maintaining the original installation level of the window without disturbing the interior finish of the room. Using standard flashings requires the internal lining around the window to be re-done.

Improving Your Window's Functionality 

Replacement VELUX roof windows

If you're sick and tired of having to reach for your control rod to let fresh air in or not being able to even find it in the first place, converting your manual VELUX windows to electric or solar is very straightforward.

Once upgraded, your window will have all the same ultra convenient functionality of a VELUX INTEGRA unit, including rain sensor, wall switch control and compatibility with VELUX ACTIVE mobile phone control.

Solar conversion kits come with a discreet integrated solar cell that is powered by the sun. Installing the solar conversion kit requires no wiring, so there is no need to redecorate.
