Yes roof windows get old and will need replacing!
When they start to leak, they course annoyance and eventually damage to other parts of the property.
If the Velux needs replacing I can do this in a few hours and when it is convenient to you or your tenants.
A damp roof may also be something simple like a cracked or slipped tile.
Velux windows come with a 10 year guarantee. This is what they to say, click here.
Gallery landing and staircase, 60s bungalow built by Jackson Lofts, Brighton
A gallery landing creates light, space and air movement in this 1960s bungalow
This gallery landing only required a small Velux window to create more light. These are oak spinals and hand rails with pine newel.

1930s semi detached house
Was: 3 bedroom and 1 bathroom.

I was also invited back to convert the little used sunroom into a kitchen/breakfast room which is now used every day!
The staircase is the most important element of a loft conversion. Each of these staircases are bespoke. Hand made by joiners from my measurements. They are to match your existing staircase and decor.
