The use of large glass areas as part of home extensions, renovations, and residential new-builds is surging, fuelled by the continuing popularity of natural light, according to roof glazing supplier LB Roof Windows.
Adrian Cooper, director of LB Roof Windows, notes that advances in roof window technology now mean virtually any area of a property that was previously dark and unwelcoming can now be adapted to maximise the intake of natural light.
He commented: “In recent years, we’ve seen a massive upswing in the popularity of natural light products. That’s coincided with consumers gaining a much greater awareness of psychological, emotional, and broader health benefits that natural light can bring – and now, inspired by shows like Grand Designs, they’re looking for stylish, effective products that can help bring more natural light into their everyday lives.
“The desire for bright, ‘transparent’ homes that dissolve the traditional boundaries between the interior and the exterior is seeing end-users embellish new kitchens, extensions and other areas with high-performance roof lanterns, roof windows and skylights.”
LB Roof Windows is a nationwide supplier of Atlas Roof Lanterns – what it describes as the strongest, slimmest aluminium roof lantern system on the market today, delivering minimal profile and maximum glass with sizes available from 1.25m to 2.5m in width. They feature a U-value of 1.5, which can be made even lower by upgrading to 40mm triple glazing.
Mr Cooper continued: “All our roof windows and other roof glazing solutions are available from stock for next day delivery anywhere in the UK and our support team is always on hand to help with technical information and advice.”
In addition to Roof Lanterns, LB Roof Windows offers a whole range of other products to help builders and installers capitalise on the current trend for natural light.
The company is a provider of Velux, Dakea and Aurora Roof Windows as well as the Coxdome flat roof domes and Sunsquare flat roof skylights.
