Question Velux windows - are there any alternatives..???

There is the remote possibility that we will be having Velux windows fitted to a pitched roof in the near future.....are there any alternatives to Velux?

I've seen a company called Fakro who do similar products? Any ideas..??

Cheers

Have a look in Wickes, they had some, which i'm sure would be a cheaper alternative.

Have been fitting roof windows for nearly 10 years,and have fitted many different makes......
The quality of the velux windows is far better than any others i have come across.ie Colt,Fakro,Ublink.
The Sun pipe types we have fitted seem to be good quality also,but are only considered when a roof window can,t be fitted(they are also a bit pricey IMO)
