Demand for flat roof domes in the domestic sector has substantially increased, according to LB Roof Windows.
Sales director Adrian Cooper says part of this growth is due to technological advances in weatherproofing for flat roofs, which now come with life time guarantees making them an attractive and modern option for homeowners.
“As the popularity of flat roofs grows, we are seeing an increase in installations of flat roof domes. Although they have a reputation for being a commercial-only product, home improvement TV shows have featured attractive home extensions with roof domes fitted on flat roofs, stirring up desire from homeowners for similar living areas.”
Mr. Cooper believes recent financial turmoil is another contributing factor to this trend, as homeowners are choosing to improve their properties instead of moving, leading to investment in home improvements such as flat roof extensions to increase space and add value to their home. This is creating opportunities for flat roof domes in the domestic market, and LB Roof Windows says it is helping installers and builders take advantage.
The company is a nationwide supplier of Coxdome flat roof domes. These are manufactured from double, triple or quadruple UV protected, polycarbonate glazing in a variety of styles, from the more commonly used square and rectangular flat roof domes to circular and pyramid domes, and can be specified fixed or feature a manual or electric opening.
“Roof domes are experiencing a very fast-paced increase in popularity and our Coxdome roof domes offer a solution to suit almost any project, helping installers sell to homeowners looking to transform a space into a light-flooded attractive room, with no compromise on energy efficiency and comfort.”
Alongside flat roofs, the company also supplies Velux, Dakea and Aurora roof windows for the pitched market.
