Roof domes are much cheaper and won’t fully open, often used on flat roofs for extra light. Velux-type opening roof windows are used on sloping tiled roofs. Opening casement type roof windows also have different types of openings, some are hinged at the top of the frame (top hung), while others have the hinge about halfway down the frame.
Installing a window usually means roof timbers will need to be cut which will involve putting extra supports in place, but this does not apply to a “like for like” replacement window. Modern Velux type roof windows offer not just more daylight and fresh air; they can also offer a fire escape exit for emergencies.
