BUILDING FABRIC & EXTERIORS


to withstand the weight of anyone walking on the rooflight.


Frequently, rooflights consist of an argon-filled cavity in between the outer pane and a toughened inner pane ensuring that the rooflight is energy efficient. You can also introduce a laminated inner pane providing added protection. This extra inner pane ensures that if there was a break, the glass would be contained within the laminate and would not fall into the room, protecting the space below.


HOW TO FIT THEM


Most reputable rooflight suppliers will have a detailed installation process and should be able to walk you through the process of fitting. Most manufacturers products should be designed to be easy to install.


Some will also offer an optional fully insulated upstand that ensures the perfect fit. Upstands are a frame that a skylight sits on, creating enough height from the roof surface and enough pitch for the water to run off the skylight. They play an important role in ensuring your new skylight fits and fits well. Once the upstand is fitted, the timber decking or roof-top paving should align with the top face of the glass, leaving a sleek, flawless finish.


As well as providing upstands, good manufacturers should provide bedding tape that goes around the external face of the upstand, creating a supremely clean finish with no need for using messy silicone. Upstands can be delivered in as little as seven days so the roofing work can be completed ahead of the rooflight arriving, saving your builder or roofer time and saving you money. If you have a larger area that needs glazing and consists of multiple panes, reputable manufacturers should offer an installation service.
