Lean To Rooflights Explained

While home extensions can be viewed as a daunting task, here at Natralight we see them as a great solution for creating more living space with the use of our lean-to rooflights.

Choosing an extension constructed from glass is a great way to add intrigue to your home, and for this blog, we will tell you why. 

Extend Your Dreams with Lean-To Rooflights

Homeowners minds often go towards potential hassles of managing building work, budgets and scheduling issues when mentioning extensions, but it doesn't have to be that way. 

We often talk to clients who dream about revamping their property but don't know how to make this a reality. The great news is that Natralight provides an end-to-end service from concept and planning to the finished extension.

Lean-to extensions add space to your home without compromising your garden. Lean-tos are usually a single-storey structure that enables the roof to lean against an outer wall of the existing property. The structure can be partially bricked to give a greater sense of permanence. They are typically used as sunrooms, part of an open-plan dining area or living area or as a tranquil haven used for reading or crafting.

The innovative design incorporates large glazed areas to flood the new room with light, seamlessly marrying the inside of your home with the outside. A lean-to solution also works well if you have low ceiling height which results in the first-floor window being partially obscured by the pitched roof or for a bungalow restricted room under the eaves. Generally, a lean-to roof slopes down and away from the exterior wall, although you can opt for an Edwardian or Victorian style vaulted roof.

The abundance of glass affords a feeling of elegance, with innovations such as a heating and cooling system plus underfloor heating worth considering.
