Spot the location
When thinking about the location of your new roof light, it is essential to consider factors such as security, how easy it is to clean, the color and style of the ceiling, and even what size the light will be.
A roof light does not have a frame, so you can place it exactly where you need more light, for example, above a window seat or dining table, if this area requires more light. It is also possible to put lights on both sides of the ceiling to allow for more natural light.
Choose the right glass
When choosing a rooflight for your home, there are many different aspects you will need to consider. Strength and security will be vital to getting it right! Rooflights, as structurally integrated elements, need to stand firm against wind and weather.
Traditional glass can be toughened quite simply, but if you also want to block out UV light, things get a little more complicated.
The most popular choice is “Sun Control” glass which reduces glare while still allowing plenty of natural light into the room. This saves on energy bills and provides an overall improved environment to live in.
If your roof light is overlooked, consider extra glass coating to choose the right roof light. Standard coatings help to keep your roof light clean and block damaging UV rays, which can fade your fabrics and furnishings. Additional coating options include glare-reducing tints or an opaque finish for privacy if your roof is overlooked.
Triple glazing employs three delicate layers of glass over a spacer system. The result is a highly efficient window at sealing out the elements, particularly thermal ones. Single-glazed windows can find it challenging to keep both heat and noise outside your home, but triple glazing solves this problem.
