Glass Roofs Give Light to Loft Conversions

Glass Roofs Give Light to Loft Conversions

Glass roofs designed by Natralight can transform a standard loft conversion into a spectacular living space.

With house prices rising the mantra ‘improve don’t move’ has never rang truer, as homeowners are now encouraged to invest in their homes. This will increase the value of your property and instead of looking outward, people are looking up as they look to make the most of what they’ve got.

Do you need planning permission for glass roofs?

When considering glass roofs for your loft conversion project, you generally don’t need to apply for planning permission as this sort of work falls under Permitted Development, because you are only altering an existing part of your property. 

If you do decide to extend beyond your existing structure or you are located in a conservation area you will need to apply for planning permission. Our team would recommend discussing your plans with your local planning office before investing any time and money in the project.

You will need a Building Regulations approval though, as a building control surveyor will be required to visit your property at various stages of construction and then issue a certificate on completion.

Glass roofs offer ventilation and light

The most straightforward way of having a glass roof installed in your loft conversion is by having a rooflight fitted by removing tiles and battens. Your rafters will then be cut by our highly skilled installation team and then the remaining rafters will be reinforced.

This type of glass roof can also suit any type of budget, meaning you can get quality glazing installed at the right price.

Ultimately this hassle free option will offer more ventilation to the room below and more light, which means you can invest your money in other areas instead of increased heating bills.
