Roof lights Installation in London

are you unsatisfied with your interior lighting? Do you want more natural light in your bedroom? or perhaps your library isn’t adequately lit. Skylights are great options, but they are expensive and difficult to maintain for some homes.

Roof lights are what you have been looking for all along. While providing natural light for some areas and rooms is nearly impossible, installing a roof light can be more than just a window for natural light. You can use it for stargazing or, if the weather doesn’t allow for that, have a view of the cloudy night sky. astronomy lovers can use a roof light to have their observatory with a home telescope.

While different from skylights by minor design differences, roof lights can be installed in almost every setting where a skylight is deployable.

for example:

  • loft areas
  • Top story
  • attic
  • living room
  • Bedrooms
  • Bathrooms
  • Stairs
  • hallway extensions
  • work stations
  • game room
  • commercial properties

Roof lights vs Skylights & Roof Windows

these three options are all great for residential and commercial use, but you must choose one that will be the most functional in your property. Roof lights and skylights are very similar in function, but their designs are different. While skylights have a three-dimensional structure, roof lights are simply an opening in the wall.

Which Roof Light Suits You?

While there is no such thing as the most popular type of roof light because of its variety and functions, some of the frequently ordered models are flat plateaus, roof lanterns, walk-on flat roof lights, and sliding variations. The roof light can be customised in not just the size and its structural model but the shade and tints of the glass as well.

One of the best fits for buildings in the UK is glazed glass for roof lights and skylights, and regular windows. The double glazed roof lights are an entry-level option in this regard, while triple-glazed glasses are the ultimate choice for heat insulation and soundproofing.

The contractor may be obligated to install vents for air passage to observe fire safety regulations for private properties for safety purposes.

What is the difference between double glazing and triple glazing?

  • Double Glazing Roof light

    If you are concerned with heat escaping through the roof light during winter or excessive amounts of sunlight shining through the transparent glass, using glazed glass in your construct is one of the most recommended options for roof lights and skylights. It is an elegant and less expensive solution that can fit on curved or flat roofs, and it can even be used in glass extensions.

    You can try double glazed roof lanterns as the latest new addition for a stunning new upgrade. Made out of aluminium with an extra protective coating, the lanterns are impervious to weather changes and are not easily bent or broken. They can be installed with four panels or more for larger rooftops, with double or triple glazed glass allowing optimal insulation and durability.

    The sky lantern or roof lantern is also available in a full-aluminium version, more durable and arguably, more fashionable than some of our glass windows and other aluminium installations. For more information about aluminium skylights, contact our office directly.

  • Triple Glazing Roof light

    While only a few customers opt for triple glazed glass, its energy efficiency and insulation capabilities are more than double glazed samples. While five per cent more efficient may not seem significant in a month, you should remember to calculate this saving in a year and see that in the long run, it makes more sense to go for triple glazing, especially with the cold winters in London. The extra layer will increase the heat retention rates in your home. The extra layer

    the space between the three layers is usually filled with gas to improve insulation further and increase durability. In addition, this new layer works even better as a soundproofing technique.

Where Should your Roof lights London be located?

The location of your roof lights is determined by more than just aesthetics and design principles. It should account for the area of your home, the direction it is facing and the direction of sunbeams, based on the time of the year. Natural daylight is relatively rare in the UK, especially in London, and you should consult the contractor about when and where you want your roof lights to flood the house with natural light.

Another factor that impacts where the roof lights can be installed is the architecture of your roof. Obviously, it cannot be placed directly over a support beam. Eventually, the consulting architect will determine the location following the blueprints of the building but also based on your request and the type of your roof, whether it is flat or curved and in accordance with sunlight patterns in London.
