When converting an attic or adding an extension to a Listed property, a key issue is the provision of natural light and ventilation. In order to secure Listed Building Consent, an appropriate arrangement of dormers and/or rooflights will be required. What is appropriate depends very much on what type of roof is proposed - its size, angle, height and the type of roof tiles used.
The Rooflight Company was founded in 1993 by architect, Peter King RIBA and has gained a reputation for innovation and design excellence. Today, as an organisation progressing in the field of contemporary architecture and interior design, the Rooflight Company offers an extensive range of roof windows, both off-the-shelf and bespoke to the customer’s requirements.
