Electric Hinged Flat Glass Rooflights
While both fixed and openable flat roof windows, also commonly referred to as rooflights, are designed specifically for flat roofs that range in pitch from 0 to 15 degrees to provide as much natural daylight into your house as possible, openable roof windows have one significant advantage - they can be opened for venting. As a homeowner, you can choose from electric to manually operated flat roof windows.

Even though electric flat roof skylights and windows are still a relatively new invention, they continue to grow in popularity.

When it comes to flat roof windows, there's a wide product range that differs in price. This means that you can browse our offer until you find something that suits all your needs and preferences and falls in your preferred price range.
Depending on your needs and a room's purpose, you can choose from various types of windows suitable for a flat roof. They range from fixed flat glass rooflights, roof domes sun tunnels, and roof lanterns to electric or manual-opening rooflights, as well as polycarbonate options.
ℹ️ What type of flat roof window is the best?
It all depends on your individual needs and preferences.
Fixed flat roof windows are incredibly popular among homeowners who want a sleek and modern design that's also affordable. If ventilation isn't your primary concern, they work particularly well when installed in areas such as staircases. They do not open, so their main purpose is to let in more daylight rather than allow you to air out the room.
Roof domes' stand out from the crowd because their glazing is made of polycarbonate instead of glass. The glazing itself is dome-shaped, but the domes can be pyramid, square, rectangular, or circular. They provide both ventilation and lots of daylight and are really affordable.
Sun tunnels channel sunlight from the roof through a reflective tube to let in more natural light. They're a perfect addition to your flat roof if you need to illuminate a windowless corridor, a north-facing room, or a dark garage.
Roof lanterns are often favored among other types of flat roof windows for their ability to channel light from virtually all angles and the fact that they look stunningly beautiful in any interior.
If you're looking for an inexpensive way to let in more light into any area of your house, opting for a fixed flat roof window will be enough. On the other hand, if you want to be able to ventilate the area, you should choose an openable flat roof window. For the most comfort, choose an electric flat roof window that you can operate via remote control.
ℹ️ How much does it cost to add an electric flat roof window?

ℹ️ How do you clean an electric flat roof window?
Cleaning an electric flat glass rooflight doesn't need to be a hassle. In most cases, all you need is to open your window and stand on a ladder or a stool that allows you to reach the window. Then, you can clean the pane using a soft, lint-free cloth, clean water, and a non-abrasive window cleaner of your choice. It's also a good idea to have a squeegee on hand so you can have a smudge-free window.
If you don't want to deal with cleaning your flat glass rooflight yourself, you can always hire a professional to do it for you or consider paying extra for self-cleaning glass.
ℹ️ Do you need planning permission for an electric flat roof window?
Permitted Development (PD) rights allow you to install roof windows as long as they do not project more than 150mm from the roof plane.
However, you should be aware of several exceptions. If your property is located in a conservation area or is currently listed, you will need to obtain planning permission before installing a roof window.
Checking with your local planning authority before starting the installation process is a good starting point. It's the best way to figure out whether or not you need planning permission for your specific project.
