There is a wide range of glazing options available to you which will bring light and fresh air into your attic room. The best glazing option to choose for your loft conversion will be influenced by your requirements and your budget. Don’t also forget to check if there are any planning restrictions or building regulations which apply to your property.
A dormer window is the perfect way to create extra headroom and space in a loft room. They can be large and allow a lot of light into the room. A dormer projects out of the sloping roof with vertical windows. Installing dormers to the front of your property will likely need planning permission. Rear additions usually fall under permitted development rights, however always check with your local council before starting any work. Seek professional design advice to help your get the look of your dormer window right.
Set into the roof of your property, straightforward in terms of planning and generally an affordable option. Rooflights offer a lot of flexibility when it comes to choosing the positioning of your windows on the roof and in most cases they wont need planning permission. This means you can add brightness and ventilation where you need it most. A frame-less option, with the glass flush to the edge will maximise the light in the room and is very aesthetically pleasing. Some products have built-in rain sensors that close automatically when it starts to rain, meaning you can leave your rooflight open without worrying about when the weather may change.
In some circumstance, the ends of your property might offer the opportunity to introduce more light. For example, if space permits you may be able to fit standard casement windows into the gable wall. Or create a feature with the whole gable being glazed, if you have a nice view you can enjoy and don’t have any overlooking issues.Back to News
"The whole process has been excellent - I really appreciate the patience you've taken on what is a huge expenditure for a passion project, working with total amateurs! You've always taken the time to answer questions, explain options and crucially, make recommendations when nativity/inexperience clouds our judgement. A real skill and something I personally have really appreciated as I feel confident that we now have windows and doors that complement our house, design and style. Without that level of consultative engagement and relationship I'm confident I would have overlooked details and made a substandard decision. Thank you!"
Mrs Trestain, Padstow
"Just a quick note of thanks to the whole team for our fab windows and doors, we are delighted with both the product and also with the whole fitting process. The lads were brilliant (it's not often you get trades in the house who leave it cleaner at the end of the day than when they arrive in the morning!!) and just quietly got on with the job. Thank you again"
Mr & Mrs Leonard, Exeter

"I wanted to just send my thanks and appreciation. We had an install approx. 6 years ago including some bi-fold doors which in recent weeks appeared to have dropped and became very difficult to lock. I called the office on Monday and a lady took my details and quickly called me back suggesting you had an engineer locally the following day. He arrived and was extremely polite and efficient and diagnosed a broken hinge. He went back to the depot collected the replacement part, then returned to Budleigh and completed the repair. We really appreciate the speed and efficiency with which you dealt with the issue and the ease from a customer perspective. "
Mr Ashby, Budleigh Salterton
"I just wanted to say thank you for the excellent service you have provided in the planning, removal & installation of our beautiful new windows and doors. We were completely amazed & delighted at the speed of which the installation took place and the hard work put in by the installation team. They worked very efficiently and communicated with me at ease through the week so I knew their plans with each room for installation. All the windows & door look great and we have already had lots of compliments. "
