The market for rooflights in the UK increased substantially over the last five years, according to a study recently published by AMA Research.*
Between 2012 and 2016 the market saw an increase of 25%, with similar growth expected during 2017.
So, with more and more people installing rooflights into their homes and architects increasingly specifying roof windows for a variety of commercial developments, what are the drivers for this market growth?
The rooflight has arguably been a feature of architecture since Roman times when an oculus was included in structures such as the Pantheon in Rome – from the Latin word for ‘eye’, an oculus is a circular opening in the centre of a dome and was included in building design as a means of bringing in sunlight and as well as keeping a building cool by letting rain in.

Whether you are looking to renovate a period property, update your home or office, or transform a new space, creating the right amount of interior light is always a major consideration and a rooflight can often be crucial in enabling daylight to flood into a lower level room, an attic or even a peculiarly shaped corner.
Clement Conservation Rooflights have recently been awarded an A+ window energy rating by the British Fenestration Rating Council (BFRC), the premier UK authority for independently verified ratings of energy efficient windows and doors. However, this is not the only benefit you receive when you choose one of our rooflights.

Clement Windows Group recently exhibited at the Listed Property Show which took place at Olympia over the weekend of 18th and 19th February.
The show, which saw visitor numbers close to 7,500, gave owners of Listed Properties the opportunity to talk to 150 specialist suppliers and gain expert advice and information on all aspects of maintaining, altering and renovating a listed home.
Clement’s stand showcased examples of high specification metal window ranges suitable for Listed Properties or those in Conservation Areas, such as: EB14, a slimline beading system with a conventional appearance which can be manufactured to fit existing apertures; the Standard Metal Window (SMW) ‘F’ series, a single glazed steel window used for sensitive replacement work where a precise geometric match is required; and, the Brooking steel framing system, designed for buildings with a traditional appearance which require a specialist ‘putty fronted’ system.
These steel window ranges not only look wonderful, but can help improve thermal and acoustic performance and maximise security, while still meeting the stringent requirements of Conservation Officers.
A selection of Clement Conservation Rooflights, recently awarded an A+ window energy rating by the BFRC, were also on display and their good looks and low profile attracted many passers-by. Available in two types for both slate and tile roofs, they are regularly specified by Conservation Officers for Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas.
Clement have a long-standing relationship with The Listed Property Owners Club and regularly appear in their publication, Listed Heritage magazine. It was wonderful to have a presence at the show and to meet so many new faces as well as several satisfied former clients.
