FAQs: Everything you need to know about our roof windows service

Here at Absolute Roof Windows, we are often asked the same questions about Velux windows and roof windows and our company. Our FAQ page contains the most common ones.

We aim for our roof windows quotes to be transparent as possible. Any quote will include the supply, delivery, and fitting of all new roof windows, or complete roof window repair or replacement. We are always happy to take away any old roof windows and other products, so they can be recycled.

The vast majority of roof windows – around 95 per cent – can be fitted from the inside so there is no need for external scaffolding. All roof windows installations that are fitted from the inside can be completed quickly, in as little as four hours from start to finish.

The overall cost of a Velux replacement or new installation will depend on a number of factors, including the style of the window, size of the window, and the labour costs based on your location. We are always happy to provide a free and no-obligation quotation.

This is subject to certain conditions being met and we are happy to offer guidance and advice.
