Where’s best to install your Rooflight?

Having an idea of what rooflight you want is good, but knowing the exact measurements, materials and placement of it can be quite the task. In this blog, we have put together a number of considerations that you need to take into account if you wish to get the best from your investment.


Firstly, the type of rooflight you select will depend on where you would like it installed. Our products range from flat to fixed and vented so it is important to know which rooflight will suit all your requirements. Begin by browsing through our products here to get more of an idea of the types that we offer.


The orientation of your window is also essential to ensure that it doesn’t become the source of future problems. Research has shown that south-facing rooflights work to reduce winter heating and summer lighting costs in cooler climates. Whilst, north-facing rooflights help to cool a room down.


As well as considering structural matters, it’s important to think about why you want your rooflight and how you use the room you’re installing it in as they can’t be easily moved or removed if and when you please. Make sure you are certain about the rooflight before committing.


DIY rooflight installation is possible, but mistakes are easily made, consequences can be dangerous and often expensive to correct. We can make sure that you get a long lasting, high quality rooflight that will fulfil all of your requirements. We also provide practical advice so give us a call on 01670 821166, or email info@directrooflights.co.uk and you’ll know you’re in safe hands!
