• Rooflights, also known as roof windows or skylights, give you the opportunity to bring in daylight through a flat or sloped roof. They’re ideal for loft areas, rooms with vaulted sloping ceilings, and conversions of protected buildings such as barns, where new window openings in the walls are often not allowed. This is partly because rooflights have less visual impact from the outside, and in planning terms they’re not considered to overlook neighbouring properties as windows do, so planning permission is often not required (although you should check to ensure this applies in your Council).

    A rooflight can bring in up to 40 per cent more light than the alternative form of roof window, the dormer, and is substantially less expensive to install.

    Whether you’re extending or renovating in a traditional or modern style, there is a roof window option to suit the design of your home.
