Rooflights for an extension, renovation or self build project are a major investment that really contribute to the overall quality of your finished home.
Not sure how to go about shopping for rooflights? Here are some top tips...
Don’t cut corners
When it comes to finishing your ideal home, some might seek alternatives to an architect’s specification in order to engineer a bit of space in the budget. This can prove a costly mistake in the long run, especially when it comes to rooflights.
The right rooflight can drastically impact both the interior and exterior look of your home and - don’t forget - you’ll be looking out of them for decades to come. It might be tempting to save a few pounds as you reach the final stages of your project, but it’s the final details that elevate the space you’ve created from adequate to amazing. Don’t compromise on the WOW factor.
Regardless of whether your own personal Grand Design is a post-modern new build or an ambitious renovation of a period property, there’s no reason to compromise on the finish because, well, it’s for you, and you know the difference between premium quality and budget alternatives.

Why go high quality?
Rooflights have such an enormous impact on the overall look of your project from both outside and in, but it’s not just about the look. If you scrimp on your options you’ll be left to choose between a nice looking frame that sucks all the heat out of your house, impacting your bills and the environment, or something that performs well but has ugly, bulky frames that leave your interiors looking messy and the exterior of your property unsightly.
The premium alternative is a rooflight that is both high-performance and ultra-sleek in terms of design, the kind of products specifiers will always want to include in their projects. That’s why The Rooflight Company and its range of elegant, high-spec rooflights remain the discerning choice for architects and savvy homeowners alike.

Indeed, the company was founded by architects Peter and Val King who were frustrated by the lack of high-performance rooflight options for period properties. That’s how The Rooflight Company’s first product, the Conservation Rooflight, was born. A steel recreation of the classic cast-iron Victorian rooflight, it’s ideal for listed properties and those in conservation areas.
The Rooflight Company has since brought a vast range of innovative and stunning rooflights to market to suit properties of all ages and styles, for pitched or flat roofs. Whatever the vision for your project, The Rooflight Company will either have it in stock, thanks to its huge range of off-the-shelf or made-to-measure shapes and sizes born from decades of working with uniquely shaped roofs, or its in-house design team will work with you to create something bespoke.
Light up your life
The latest range, neo, is an uber sleek, high-spec range of contemporary rooflights for both flat and pitched roofs. The newest product in that range, neo Advance, gives you a frameless appearance for unobstructed views and uninterrupted natural light. Its hidden frame is constructed from aluminium and that, combined with the company’s patented thermal shielding technology, makes it one of the most high-performance double-glazed systems on the market. It perfectly balances elegant design with thermal efficiency, making it ideal for coastal locations.
Prioritising the finishing details can make or break a project and choosing the right rooflight can add undeniable beauty to the external and internal look of your property. It can also enhance your sustainability efforts and offer exceptional light and ventilation benefits. Complete your home with the perfect rooflight and make sure that when you’re gazing at the stars, the view makes you smile.
