Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Balcony Roof Window?
A balcony window is simply a roof window that transform to provide a small balcony-like area. During this transformation the lower sash of the window extends slightly to take advantage of the area of flooring immediately beneath your roof window. This space is traditionally wasted due to the height being significantly restricted with a standard roof window.
Balcony roof windows are available from several manufacturers. These include FAKRO and VELUX, who offer the popular FAKRO Galaria and VELUX Cabrio. Whilst there are a few minor differences between the two, both offer innovative ways to enhance your living space.
Do Your Require Planning Permission for a Balcony Window?
You may be required to apply for local planning permission before you’re able to install a balcony window. This will be dependent upon the regulations in your region and type of property, as different laws govern properties in conservation areas of or historical importance.
