Skylights: Rooftop Window

Reviewed by:

Even cramped attic spaces will feel bigger and brighter with these large, top-hinged roof windows. The GPL Roof Window has laminated, insulated glass with a wooden frame, clad in aluminum (or copper).

The window opens a full 45 degrees, so it can also be used as an emergency escape. No need to climb the roof to wash dirty windows; the sash tilts inward, for easy cleaning.

Optional extras are a heatblock awning, built-in blinds, and insect screening.
