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.

Swift. Delivery. Arrived as described. Straight forward payment arrangement. Great advice and support when planning project. Motorised rooflight works remarkably quietly. A little costly however compared to some competition.

I actually bought my roof lights on the back of EOS’s reviews section, and now my extension is nearing completion, (finally) I wanted to pass on my experience. I couldn’t be happier with my decision, its clearly a very high quality product and they look amazing in our new kitchen. They are heavy so make sure you have lots of strong guys on site. The staff are all very helpful and seem very knowledgable. Highly recommended them.

Excellent customer service. Really took the time to listen to our needs and help us find exactly what we wanted, within the time schedule from our builders. They were also flexible as the schedule shifted and always available for any questions. And beyond that, our roof lights look so amazing! So, I'm a very happy customer.

EOS were very helpful during the sales process, liaising directly with my builder to confirm requirements (when I was way out of my depth). My builder’s feedback post installation is that the windows are heavy duty and top quality, even when compared with more expensive options he’s fitted in the past. He’ll be recommending EOS for future builds.

Excellent product with a very high finish. EOS were very helpful and we are delighted with the rooflight we ordered. Our room looks amazing now we have so much light flooding in to it. We looked at lots of suppliers but we are glad we chose EOS on recommendation from our builder who had used them before.

The service provided by EOS Rooflights was absolutely outstanding. From the communication via e-mail and telephone, to the quality of the product, I could not fault them one bit. We have now had our rooflights fitted and they look amazing! The joiner said the instructions were easy to follow and the rooflights themselves were easy to fit. Amazing!

We met EOS at the Homebuild Show in Birmingham as we wanted to see the rooflights before we bought them for our extension. We met with Elliot who answered all of our questions and helped out with our plans, as one of the sizes needed amending. The rooflights look beautiful in our kitchen. I would highly recommend EOS to anyone, especially if you this is your first build. Elliot couldn't of been more helpful with answering our queries.
