The cost-of-living crisis resulted in a rising and unsteady housing market. So why move when you can simply improve. At YARD we have roof windows suited to every budget, so you can create your happy healthy home. While not breaking the bank.







Roof window prices

The roof window industry has been affected in many ways with the worldwide inflation. The cost of raw materials to manufacture has risen along with delivery costs and standard operating costs. Saying this, a lot of roof window brands have increased the price of their products to maintain the highest quality of products at their pricing tier. There have been 3 price rises for some brands since January 2022 and no sign of this slowing down. So, if you are dreaming of adding natural daylight and fresh air to your home, think ahead. Beat the rise.

Long-term roof window benefits to tackle other costs.

Our brands of roof windows are designed, manufactured, and tested to ensure the best energy efficiency. So, how can this help you in the long run. Roof windows usually have a Low-E coating on the glazing pane of the roof window. This Low-E coating allows passage of maximum daylight and reduces the UV and heat distributed from the sun. This has multiple benefits such as: excessive heating in the summer and prevents the fading of carpets, furniture, and fabrics in direct sunlight from your roof window. The seals, frame and flashing of the roof window stop any drafts and leaks to keep proper insulation in winter. In conclusion, roof windows reduce energy-bills throughout summer and winter via replacing the use of electric fans and daylights within your home.
