Rooflights: The Different Types & Which Should I Choose?
Rooflights or windows are perfect ways to add natural light into a converted roof space, loft or even on a ground floor extension. Rooflights can transform a dark area into a naturally lit office, bedroom or living area.
Popular Rooflight Types

Not sure which rooflight to choose?
Typically, flat rooflights suit more contemporary style builds. Ultimately, your choice will boil down to personal preference, how much natural light you’d like to gain and the available space.
You will also have various other options to consider, such as the insulation levels, opening mechanisms and frame colour and finishes.
