WHAT IS A ROOF WINDOW?
A roof window is a unit designed for installation "in-reach." The roof window sash can be pivoted so the homeowner can clean the exterior pane of glass from inside the home.
Some larger roof window models meet building code requirements for egress (emergency escape). Many times, roof windows are installed in attics being used as living space.
Skylights, on the other hand, are usually installed in "out-of-reach" applications and meet most building code requirements for testing and labelling.
