This article will help you understand the common questions and hesitations people have when thinking about installing a rooflight.
How do I know if I can add a Flat Glass Rooflight to my existing roof?
This is normally the first question people ask. Can I add a flat glass rooflight to a roof I already have. If your roof is in good condition and is structurally sound there is no reason why you cant add a flat glass rooflight. A recommended builder or rooflight installer will be able to confirm the modifications you may need to make. However it is a simple process to install a roolight and uncommon that you wouldnt be able to add one to your existing roof.
Will a Skylight for Flat Roofs change the temperature in my room?
Adding any glass into a room can increase or decrease the temperature. To break it down simply. When the sun is shining your room will be hotter the more glass you have in the room. You can counter act this by adding the integrated blinds option when purchasing your rooflight. If you are going to have a number of rooflights or a very large rooflight then we would always recommend adding the option of a blind.
On the flip side adding glass into a room can also make the room cooler in winter months. We recommend you install a triple glazed rooflight which will ensure that you retain as much heat as possible in your room.
