Why choose Direct Rooflights?

Growing numbers of people are looking at the benefits of roof lighting when they refurbish, renovate or re-imagine their homes. Other than the aesthetic qualities they bring to the appearance of any home, rooflights bring many qualities and features that home owners appreciate having.

Our rooflights have great heat retention meaning that most of the heat collected during the day will not be lost during the night, creating noticeable savings in your gas and electricity bills. Direct Rooflights only use the most thermally efficient UPVC ensuring that we satisfy the needs of every customer we deal with.

Some assume that homes in the UK would not enjoy as much benefit from the installation of rooflights as possible due to the darker, colder autumn and winter months that the country experiences as part of being in the Northern Hemisphere. The truth is, however, quite different from this assumption. The effects of rooflights can still be enjoyed and appreciated through less pleasurable weather conditions. They provide a significant amount more natural light than conventional windows do at these times, something that serves to cut down on the need for extensive reliance on artificial lighting. Many who have installed rooflights have expressed their pleasure at the calming, smoothing effect being able to see the skies and clouds above them has.

Rooflights made with style and quality in mind

about us

For a range of good reasons UK home-owners are increasingly looking at having rooflights fitted to their homes. Whereas once this was considered something of a designer luxury, technology improvements has allowed a company like us at Direct to be able to offer the most outstanding quality of rooflight at the lowest trade prices possible.

In this time of rising energy costs, with even the most generous of budgets feeling the effects of increased charges for gas and electricity, rooflights offer great value in helping reduce this expenditure. By their very nature rooflights allow for considerably more natural light to enter your home, reducing the need for a reliance on artificial lighting. This serves to both reduce your reliance on expensive lighting inside and is much better for your general wellbeing, with research indicating that people who are exposed to more artificial than natural light are more prone to symptoms of depression.

This is true, in particular with regards to the psychological benefits, as much during autumn and winter as it is of summer. Despite the sunlight hours being shorter, research has shown than people experience more comfort and less anxiety when they are able to sense and see the skyline. Having rooflights takes away the feeling of being “trapped” or being kept a prisoner in their own home during inclement weather.

Rooflights can also provide assistance and benefit in making a home more energy efficient. Other than the beneficial extra lighting it lets in, substantially more natural heating is allowed to be transmitted into the house too. Rooflights and skylights can also enhance the efficiency and ability of your home to retain heat, with less energy being allowed to escape.

A natural concern would be that this comes at the cost of increased exposure to the dangers of the sun. We at Direct address this by ensuring that the high quality rooflights we provide features UV protective coating, which works to keep the harmful elements out as the beneficial ones flow into your home.

The aesthetic appearance benefits of rooflights are complemented by the other, numerous qualities that they bring to your home and lifestyle. To ensure that you gain all possible benefits, however, it is important to use only the best and most trusted roof lights products available. For over 60 years we at Direct have a proud record for doing just that, with our quality products being made available at trade prices seeing us as being regarded as one of the leaders in the field.
