VCIP member, Steve James, recently fitted a 3in1 roof window in an old Victorian townhouse. An existing fixed rooflight was too small and in need of replacing and Steve, of John James Roofing Services, knew the 3in1 roof window was the perfect product to meet the customer’s needs.
Why this product for your customer?
The internal three-storey stairwell was very dark, so Steve recommended the 3in1 roof window, knowing it would bring light all the way down to meet the light from the front doorway beautifully.
Although the primary need was to create more light, having lived with a fixed roof light, another key driver was ventilation.
“As well as being an ideal size for this project,” Steve continued, “the two opening centre pivots were appealing to this particular customer because it allows them to open the window during summer.
“We also provided a telescopic VELUX pole as the window wasn’t too high to access.”
What made the 3in1 so easy to install?
“The ability to remove both pivots makes the 3in1 very manageable weight wise,” Steve explained. Despite access to the house being via a very narrow street and the property having an awkward stairwell, “once the window was in place, it was a two-man job, like any other installation.”
Would you recommend the 3in1?
This is the second 3in1 Steve and his team have fitted and he says it’s the perfect solution for brightening lofts, creating spacious studios, welcoming workspaces and even luxurious living rooms that want to make the most of a view.
“The customer was very happy with the result. The 3in1 was easy to install and cost-effective – I definitely recommend it.”
