Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Conservation Roof Window?

Unlike normal windows, conservation roof windows feature a uniquely coloured external frame and integrated mullion bar. These are often required to meet the demands of building regulations in towns and villages across the UK.

Why Are All Conservation Windows Black?
In most circumstances, you will be required to have a black outer frame in a conservation area. All conservation roof windows therefore feature a black finish on the outside, although they may feature pine or UPVC internal frames.
