Attic Lighting & Ventilation

A mix of natural and electric lighting & ventilation is used to light up and ventilate your attic. Natural lighting & fresh air is from skylights, windows and light tunnels. Electric lighting & ventilation is from energy efficient LED lights and air condtioners. The electric power source can be from mains power or from solar if it is available. Skylights and windows can be installed in other parts of the home and not just attics.

A VELUX Roof Window is a simple and efficient way to bring natural light and fresh air into the attic. VELUX windows feature double glazed glass as standard and passive ventilation where the window does not have to be open for air to circulate.

VELUX windows are easy to clean and easily accessible from the interior of the house.

Available in 5 different sizes and highly rated for adverse conditions like heavy rain, wind, storms, hail and bushfires.


Dormer Windows are an alternative to roof windows.

They extend out of the roof and provide more room and head height. Dormer windows help create more usable space in attics.

AddSpace Building can add windows to an existing dormer or build a new dormer structure for your attic.
