If the property you’re working on already has roof windows in place but they need upgrading, then JJ Roofing can supply you with a variety of suitable replacement glazing units that will give those old windows a second life.
The most popular manufacturer for replacement glazing for roof windows is Velux. With more than 70 years of industry experience in creating the most high performance roof windows and accessories that money can buy, Velux can be trusted to also offer you the best quality replacement glazing on the UK market. These glazing options are guaranteed to block out intrusive background noises, improve insulation properties as well as making the windows more resistant to the elements and adverse weather activity.
Velux produces a variety of models that are suitable for all generations of windows. The replacement glazing can easily be installed without having to change the entire structure. Each replacement unit is guaranteed to include a toughened outer pane which will offer improved heat resistance and therefore increase the value of the property.
Glazing that was installed before the year 2001 doesn’t possess the levels of insulation technology that modern alternatives can now offer. Higher energy bills are common in older properties because of this reason – older glazing gives homes a lower energy rating due to the insufficient performance when it comes to keeping the heat in.
Even if your older glazing that dates back prior to 2001 was supplied by Velux, you might want to consider upgrading to the newer option. Velux glazing before the year 2001 had a thickness of 16 millimetres which was excellent for the time, however the newer versions possess a thickness of 24 millimetres making it a more cost effective option in the long term.
When you opt for the popular Velux IGR Glazing Conversion Kit that we stock right here at JJ Roofing, you will be able to install it yourself. Each package comes with detailed instructions and everything you need for adapting your current roof windows.
