Do you need a Price?

Looking to add that extra something to your home, but not sure what it needs? Look no further, EOS Rooflights has the solution.

With huge increases in the thermal efficiency of double glazed windows over recent years, there has been a trend towards home owners adding greater and greater quantities of glass to their properties.

The attraction of glass is that it creates a connection with the outside world and allows light into the building, thereby creating a sense of greater space.

In order to achieve a large expanse of glass, people often choose to have a bespoke structures created, such as a custom skylight. However, a similar effect can be achieved for less if multiple rooflights placed next together in order to create a larger glass area.

Planning Permission

One consideration for anyone who wants to create a large glass expanse on the outside of their home is planning permission. The planning guidelines for England and Wales allow a standard sized rooflight to be installed without the need for planning permission in most circumstances.

However, if the glass structure is deemed to be over a reasonable size then planning permission could be required. It always makes sense to consult your local planning authority before going ahead with the installation of rooflights, particularly when you are combining several in order to create a new high impact feature for your home.

Transform Your Property

Creating a glass roof for a room of your house is perfectly possible using multiple rooflights. A glass roof is a spectacular option for a bedroom, allowing the occupants to look up at the stars as they lie in bed. Similarly, it makes a great addition to a sitting room, opening the space up to the sky above. This will also allow you to have opening panels for when the weather is hot, giving you the added bonus of extra ventilation.

For people who are building an extension on to a historic building, a glass roofed linking passage is an excellent way to keep a separation between old and new. This is an approach that is favoured by planners over building an extension in a similar style to the existing historic property.

Using rooflights as part of the extension is a cost effective way of adding modern conveniences without detracting from the character of your building. For people who are converting barns or renovating the interior of a historic property, multiple skylights can allow huge amounts of light into the building, without having to cut windows into the walls and change the building’s original appearance.

Glass Walkways

Another use for multiple rooflights is to create a transparent walkway. Although more specialist this can help to allow light to filter through from one level of a building to another whilst creating an exciting focal point within your property. The use of toughened glass and heat strengthened outer panels in our WalkOn products offer extra structural support and ensure that the walkway is strong enough whilst maintaining the walking on air effect. Walkways can be used at roof level as part of a balcony or roof terrace, or they can be internal corridors within your home.

Modern Designs

Skylights can be used as part of a modernist design, with a flat glass roof covering a minimalist room.

Opening rooflights can also be easily incorporated into the majority of designs. For situations where the roof lights are outside of the easy reach of someone standing on the ground, an electric control system can be fitted to allow them to be opened using remote control.

The square and rectangular shapes that skylights typically take can easily be transformed into any shape that you desire by building an appropriately shaped frame beneath them. A huge circular rooflight could be achieved by installing multiple rectangular roof lights and then building a circular frame.

The alternative to this approach would be to have a gigantic bespoke circular roof light constructed, something that would be far more expensive and not much more effective.

The roof light that I ordered arrived on time and appears to be very well made. The instructions were clear and my builder had no problems installing it, other than in getting it onto the roof as it is very heavy. The roof light looks good and I am glad that I was able to buy one with such a good U value as I wanted the light without the loss of heat.

EoS and their staff were very helpful in design and specification for a large skylight. They gave top quality support in the runnup to installation and were very accommodating in helping to source correct vehicle to crane in said (very heavy) skylight.

I'm delighted with my EOS roof lights. I had to choose roof lights that were slightly smaller than I wanted, due to design constraints, but the amount of light provided is wonderful and unexpected. The whole kitchen is lit up, even when the curtains are closed across our french doors. Many thanks EOS, A happy customers.

Really nice company - fast, efficient and pleasant in all my dealings with them. There was a delivery error and they worked hard to find a solution as quickly as possible and did everything they said they would. Really impressed all round - when you are having an extension on your house, you end up dealing with lots of suppliers. I wish they were all as good as EOS.
