Introducing the VELUX Window Configurator

Introducing the VELUX Window Configurator; designed to make choosing the right windows, easier.

Purchasing roof windows can be confusing. There are so many shapes and sizes available, not to mention options for:  

  • Operation  
  • Control modes  
  • Internal and external finishes  
  • Window flashings 
  • Additional extras such as an insulation collar, vapour barrier or underfelt collar  

It can be even more confusing when you’re not sure what you need. That’s why the VELUX roof window configurator is now integrated into the Howarth Timber & Building Supplies website. The Configurator is simple to use, making it easier to find the right roof windows to suit your tastes and needs.   

Benefits of using the VELUX Configurator:  

  • Find everything that you need and/or want from your roof window so that you don’t need to search around for additional products  
  • Quickly pull together an itemised quote that breaks down each separate component of your window system. This guarantees that you know exactly how much you’ll be paying, without any nasty shocks 
  • Effortlessly compare the price difference between various options  
  • The ability to print your configuration out, if you need to discuss it with a customer or partner before making a purchase 
  • Easily visualise different sizes and shapes of roof window  
  • Quickly analyse the different options available for the window of your choice  
  • Putting in your postcode or signing into your online account, allows us to direct your order straight to your nearest Howarth branch
