What To Consider When Purchasing A Flat Rooflight

Are flat roof skylights right for you?

The first decision you will need to make is whether a flat rooflight is right for your home. Here are a few of the reasons why our customers decide to install our units:

  • To save money on their electricity bills by letting more natural light into a space, without losing any heat
  • To allow more light flow across floors by mounting glass panes internally
  • To add a more modern and contemporary look to the room – the extra light often makes an area look much more spacious
  • To introduce more air flow ventilation into a building

So how do they work?

Rooflights are installed into the roof structure, and as such are built to insulate and otherwise protect your house from the elements.

All of our frames are made of strong and durable aluminium and are powder coated to withstand poor weather and prevent water pooling.

As water can potentially cause a big problem for rooflights, we’ve also ensured that the frame finishes at the same level of the glass so it will simply slide off the side.

Our units have all been tested, and passed with flying colours for water and air tightness, so there’s no need to worry about air loss or leaking.

To prevent any UV damage to the internal fittings in the rare moments of British sunshine, our frames have a silk band around the internal pane.

Like peace and quiet? Us too. Each of our units are also sound insulated – we’ve tested this as well, and we know you’ll be pleased with the results.

How are they structured?

You will see in our presentation above that all of our products are structured as followed:

Outer Glass Pane: Depending on your unit, this will be either double or triple glazed. Double glazed still delivers excellent performance, but for extra eco-friendliness, triple glazed will work even harder for you.

Inner Laminated Glass Panel: We are one of the only companies in the UK that provide a laminated inner pane as standard – that means no extra cost for extra protection. Laminated glass won’t shatter into tiny pieces, so inside your residence is safe too.

Internal and External Frames: Designed and built to not only look great, but also to add additional strength.

Cavity: This is the space between the glass. The gap is injected with argon or krypton gas which maximises energy efficiency.

Upstand: The upstand is the frame that the skylight sits on and will secure your unit as well as ensure it is in line with building regulations. We can provide insulated upstands which satisfy these requirements should you not wish to construct your own.

So how do they work?

It is highly unlikely that any regulations would restrict the installation of a flat roof skylight.

The only limitations you would possibly come across are:

  • If the proposed installation takes up a particularly large area of your roof. It needs to comply with a ‘reasonable size’ – otherwise it’s probably a greenhouse you’re after!
  • You happen to live in a Listed building or designated area, where any building work needs to be applied for.
  • Current regulations state that your rooflight should be pitched at least 150mm above your existing roof level

How do I know which one is right for me?

Before choosing the right skylight, you need to consider its main use.

We are very happy with both the product and the service we received from the company. The roof light is of excellent quality at a competitive price and the customer service was excellent. It is always good to be able to contact a company once you have ordered a product and this was certainly the case with EOS Rooflights Ltd. Unlike a number of other companies we have had to deal with during our building project.

I sent in the order for the roof light and received delivery in 4 weeks, at the moment anything that includes glass is taking ages so I was surprised when it turned up on time.

We have used EOS Rooflights on a couple of projects now and will continue to do so. The quality of the frame which is welded, and the glass connection, is second to none, and this makes for a trouble-free installation. Hillbuilt Construction

I did a lot of shopping around when trying to find the right product for our extension roof and the EOS Flex electric stood out in terms of price and overall quality. The ordering and delivery process was fantastic (within a week it was with me) and it took less than an hour to install. Really happy with the quality and finish so wouldn't hesitate in recommending to anyone looking for similar

EOS where very helpful throughout, the pricing was competitive with all the quotes we received and the walk-on rooflight was exceptionally well made. We prepared the opening using EOS details and plans and it came exactly as described and fitted perfectly (this seems obvious but surprisingly doesn't always happen). I would 100% use them again and would recommend EOS to others without hesitation. I am extremely pleased with the finished rooflight and it looks brilliant installed. My contractor said it was perfect and came exactly as described too, so good all round.No pictures at present but can provide later! It looks fab!

We purchased a flat roof light last year and we're so glad we did. It's made such a difference to the light we get into the room and looks amazing too. Top product and great results. Our builder was impressed with it too and how quickly his question was answered when he was installing it.

As part of my build project I researched many companies looking for good quality skylights and a company that could offer both opening and fixed skylights. EOS fitted all my requirements. Both Elliot and Chris were consummate professionals in dealing with my queries and ensuring I got my delivery on time. The skylights were solidly constructed and we love them. The only thing I will say is that if you order a bespoke size, make sure you can wait 6 weeks from order to delivery.
