Frequently Asked Questions

What is a pitched rooflight?

A pitched rooflight is a type of roof window that is installed on a sloped roof. Since every roof is a little different the slope involved may be as little as 10 degrees or as much as 45 or 50 degrees. A pitched rooflight is one of the best-known ways to bring light into what was a dark and uninviting space and they have both residential and commercial applications.

How do I clean a pitched rooflight?

It is important to keep your pitched rooflights clean but how you clean them will depend on where they are located and your level of comfort when working at height. Pitched rooflights are often located 2 or 3 storeys above street level and for that reason reaching them can be a daunting task. If you are not comfortable working at height or you have little experience working on tall ladders we would strongly urge you to hire a qualified professional window cleaner. Just make certain they are fully insured.

How can I clean the inside of a pitched rooflight?

It is advisable to clean the inside of your pitched rooflights every 2 or 3 months, but doing so may present a challenge to some people. Many people with rooflights attach dust mops or sponges (or both) to the end of long poles and use them to gently wipe down the inside of the rooflight. Just make sure the sponge is non-abrasive and avoid using harsh chemicals. If there is carpeting under the rooflight make sure you cover it first.
