Pitched Roof Dormer

Pitched roof dormer windows are generally built to create extra space within a roof that already benefits from usable space but needs more headroom, floor space and light in certain areas.

For example you may need to use a dormer window to get access for a set of stairs or headroom at the top of a staircase.

Pitched roof dormer windows are certainly more aesthetically pleasing and for this reason a good option if a flat roof dormer has been refused planning permission.
