Experiencing problems with your VELUX windows?

At Unique Build, we’ve been installing VELUX skylight and rooflight windows for over 15 years with our custom loft conversions. We can attest that VELUX windows are the highest quality in the business. However, even VELUX are prone to problems and issues occasionally. At times, they’ll need repairs or even replacing.

When it comes to getting your VELUX repaired or replaced, look for a VELUX Certified Installer like Unique Build. These are companies that have been accredited by VELUX, and received exclusive training directly from them. Simply put, there’s no higher accreditation for VELUX repairs and replacements.

All of our work on your windows is fast, non-disruptive, and comes with a 10 year guarantee.

Problems you might experience with your VELUX windows

There are two major reasons why problems with VELUX windows occur:

1) bad installations for recent windows
2) old windows have deteriorated

We will make recommendations for repairs or replacements. Some of the common issues our clients are experiencing include…

  • Wind and draughts getting in through the windows.
  • Excessive amounts of condensation and water vapour forming on the windows.
  • Water leaks around the window, which can also damage masonry and walls.
  • Stiff and aged gaskets meaning that the window is clunky and difficult to open.
  • Numerous other reasons why the VELUX window may not be opening.
  • Poor insulation from the windows resulting in energy waste.
  • Deteriorated and flimsy seals which means the window never fully shuts.
  • Other stiff mechanisms which mean that the window won’t close.
  • Cracks in the window pane.
  • Discolouration to the window or frame.

Sounding familiar? We can have these problems, and others, sorted quickly.

VELUX are of premium quality, but after many years it can be advisable to replace them rather than repair them if problems occur. We'll be able to assess whether repairs or replacement are the best course of action.
