LB Roof Windows’ sales director Adrian Cooper says part of this increase in demand is down to technological advances in weatherproofing for flat roofs.
The days when flat roofs were scaring people off with problems such as leaking and heat loss are long gone. Flat roof systems now come with life time guarantees, making them an attractive and modern option for homeowners having an extension built.Adrian commented: “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 for use in projects such as schools and hospitals, 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.”
Adrian believes recent financial turmoil is another contributing factor to this trend. With new and larger mortgage loans more difficult to obtain, homeowners are choosing to improve not move, investing in home improvements such as flat roof extensions to increase space and add value to their home.
This is opening up opportunities for flat roof domes in the domestic market, and LB Roof Windows is helping installers and builders take advantage of this.
The company is a nationwide supplier of Coxdome flat roof domes. These are manufactured from double, triple or quadruple UV protected, polycarbonate glazing. Domes are available 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.
Adrian comments: “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 is also a leading supplier of Roof Windows manufactured by the internationally renowned VKR Group: Velux, Dakea and Aurora. Aurora Roof Windows are available in the UK exclusively from LB Roof Windows and offer similar features and benefits to the popular Velux window, but are much more competitively priced.
