What is a roof window?
A roof window is a unit designed to be installed so that it can be reached for opening or closing. The roof window sash can be pivoted so you 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 used as living space.
Skylights, on the other hand, are usually installed out of reach well above floor level. However, there are accessories available for light control with skylights.
