A roof window
The invention relates to a roof window having a frame and a sash, said sash carrying a pane and being connected with the frame by means of a pair of pivot hinges, in which covering members are provided on the outside for shielding the sash and frame members against the weather and where a sealing strip is arranged between the pane and the sash. The frame and sash members are made from extruded plastic profiles. One or more of the frame and sash members may be provided with a flange having the shape of an inverted L and projecting towards the exterior of the window, a first leg of the L being connected to the main body of the profile and a second leg being substantially parallel with the plane of the pane, and that said second leg of the flange supports a covering member. A space is defined between the side members of the frame and sash on both sides of the window, said space extending over the entire length of the side members and, in the mounted state, being upwards open. A bottom portion of the sealing strip is preferably interrupted or has grooves forming drainage channels across the sealing. A method of such a roof window includes the cutting of the extruded plastic profiles into appropriate pieces corresponding to length of the frame and sash members, the interconnection of these pieces by gluing, welding or the like or by means of appropriate fittings to form rectangular framings, and the customization of at least one profile piece by trimming or by addition of an adaptation element.
