Roof windows are thriving on the back of conservatory market

Roof windows are thriving on the back of conservatory market

Lightweight solid roof systems for conservatories have gained substantial momentum since being introduced on the market a few years ago as the answer to all problems associated with conservatories. Their popularity has opened up a series of opportunities for builders and installers to further increase their margins by offering additional related products, such as Roof Windows.

With their promise to deliver all year-round usability of the conservatory, solid roof systems have achieved strong commercial success both in the replacement market, as well as the new build sector. The last couple of years have proved these systems live up to the expectations, creating a new market for additional products along the way.

Adrian Cooper, sales director of LB Roof Windows, explains: “Solid roof systems have great insulating properties compared to the glass or polycarbonate roofs, keeping the heating bills down during the cold months. But they also require very good ventilation to maintain a cool, pleasant temperature in the summer. One stylish way of achieving this is by fitting Roof Windows which, in combination with the vertical units, offer an optimum level of ventilation, even in south-facing conservatories.”

LB Roof Windows is a leading supplier of Velux, Dakea and Aurora Roof Windows manufactured by the reputable international VKR Group. The company also supplies conservatory roof accessories including tie bars and tie wires, roof vent accessories, flat roof domes, as well as many other related products.

According to the company’s sales director, demand for Roof Windows is following a strong, ascending trend, and Adrian believes this is partly due to more and more homeowners opting for solid roofs and, implicitly, Roof Windows.

He added: “Homeowners still want their conservatory to serve the purpose for which they were built – to allow maximum levels of natural light in and to offer beautiful views of the garden and sky. Not only do Roof Windows enable this, while perfectly complimenting solid roof systems, but, thanks to their high energy performances, there’s no heat loss during winters either.”

LB Roof Windows are the exclusive UK supplier of the Aurora range of Roof Windows, which deliver similar features and benefits to the popular Velux brand, but are much more competitively priced, allowing for higher margins. Sales of the Aurora Roof Window have recorded a spike in demand thanks to its position on the market as an affordable, but still high-quality option to the more well-known brands.
