Benefits of Roof Windows for Boarded Lofts

If you’ve boarded your loft for additional storage space, you might be considering what the next step is to take it to the next level. 

Loft Roof windows offer a wide range of benefits to your home, allowing you to turn your loft from a dark, dangerous space into one that is bright, safe and full of fresh air.

Benefits of the Keylite Roof Windows

At Instaloft, we offer BBA approved Keylite windows at either 550×780 or 550×980 sizes. Suitable for a range of different homes, we can install this versatile loft roof window on any roof with a pitch of 15°-90°. 

To book your free quotation, just give us a call on 0333 043 3488 or fill in the loft roof window form, and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible. These innovative loft roof windows enable you to enjoy the benefits natural light brings to your loft, including:

Provide easy light access

You can get LED loft lights installed to provide extensive illumination and help you navigate around your loft space safely, but a loft roof window will not only give a more natural, warm light but they also cost nothing to run, making them a more cost-effective investment for the long term.

Energy Efficient Insulation

You wouldn’t expect your loft roof windows to improve your home’s energy efficiency, but Keylite roof windows feature Futuretherm technology.

Its thermal glazing consists of two panes separated with gas to reduce heat transfer. The reduced heat loss in the home means you don’t need to rely on artificial heating systems to warm your home and save money.

Keylite roof windows are also designed with an expanding thermal collar so that when we install the window, pulling the release tab will allow the foam to insulate the 20mm gap around the window.

Ventilation into the loft

Lofts frequently feel stuffy due to a lack of ventilation. Thankfully Keylite loft roof windows offer ventilation in many ways. 

Most obviously, simply having them open can allow air from the outside to circulate into the loft and provide a healthier and more attractive appeal to your space. This is particularly efficient if you have two windows at opposite ends of your loft to create a flow of air throughout. 

Keylite roof windows also boast an option for fresh trickle ventilation even if the window is locked and secure so that you can experience fresh air no matter the weather. It does this by utilising the handle at the top of the window, which is outfitted with a ventilation flap and has a built-in insect filter that ensures only clean, fresh air passes into the room.

Easy operation

Our Keylite windows are centre pivot and designed with user convenience in mind. Able to be effortlessly operated using the control bar at the top to pull down and open the window with ease rather than push it open from the bottom and risk injuring yourself.

Adding value to your home

Even if it’s just for additional storage, having your loft boarded so it can provide more space in your home will increase its worth. Add loft roof windows into this equation, and you’re going to make your home even more attractive to potential buyers, upping your sale value.
