Roof windows require little care - just the ordinary cleaning of the pane and a yearly re-lacquering of the wood if installed in rooms with a high level of humidity. All roof windows rotate up to 165 degrees to facilitate easy cleaning of the external pane. Moreover, Dakea Ultima and Dakea Best PVC ranges come with a care-free Titan Glass coating.

Titan Glass glazing unit offers an unparalleled reduction of dirt build up on the external surface of the window. 

During the manufacturing process of the glazing a special microscopic titanium dioxide coating is applied directly to the surface of the glass. When exposed to sunlight, this titanium coating triggers a dual-action process:

  1. Using a "photocatalytic" process, the coating reacts with ultra-violet rays present in natural daylight to break down and disintegrate organic dirt.
  2. Uses rain to wash away the disintegrated dirt. Making your window maintenance environmentally friendly and care free!

In addition, Titan Glass enables faster drying - leaving the glass clean and with reduced streaks, which gives you beautifully clear views and makes it ideal for all the exterior glass surfaces in your home.

You can also clean the wood with hot soapy water, but please note that too frequent cleaning may increase the need for re-lacquering the wood.

Re-lacquer the window. The need for re-lacquering depends on the humidity in the room. You can use any type of water-based lacquer – but please make sure it is applied evenly.

Grease the centre hinges to ensure a smooth rotation of the window.

Clean around the gutters on the window to ensure a free flow of rainwater around the window.

Maintenance – Blinds

The blinds do not need regular maintenance. All you need to do is to clean the blinds with a damp cloth when you see a need.


Maintenance – Roller shutter

We recommend that you periodically clean the gutter and the area around the roller.

You do not need a regular service for your roller shutter to keep it working. Just use common sense and it will last you for many years.

Maintenance – Electrical opener

You can clean the motor with a damp cloth using normal detergents.

There is not much maintenance needed for your electrical opener. We only recommend that you grease the chain once a year to increase durability and keep the chain running smoothly.
