Adding a dormer to a roof can be for aesthetic purposes only, or it can be a clever way to add light and extra space to an upstairs room.
A dormer uses a window built into the gabled extension protruding out of the roof. These windows can be inaccessible, and for aesthetic purposes only, or can be a clever way to add light and extra space to an upstairs room. Because of their high location, installing one of these windows can be a little tricky.
The installation of a dormer window requires a series of steps that must be carefully followed to ensure proper installation and prevention of leaks.
Installing a dormer window does require a certain amount of skill, and if you are up to tackling the project yourself, you can find more detailed examples at thisoldhouse.com.
