Our Heritage rooflights and original Conservation rooflights are available in a range of standard sizes but are made to order. This means that you have the ability to decide on whether you need a coastal paint application, a change of colour or an alternative glazing specification.

We have a bespoke Heritage rooflight available for sale at a significantly discounted rate. This non-opening bespoke rooflight has an internal rafter size (structural opening size) of 3340mm (w) x 840mm (h). The drawing of this purpose made rooflight shows two glazing bars but we can assemble without the bars if required. Please note that the specification of this particular bespoke rooflight is listed below and may vary from the details...

You can contact us via phone, email, live chat or directly through the website. The most popular way for customers to request a quotation for bespoke tailor-made rooflights is via email as this provides a chain of information that everyone can refer to.

We aim to turn around your bespoke rooflight quotation on the day we receive your enquiry so it is always useful to have as much information as possible from the outset.

We have recently supplied a bespoke tailor made rooflight for a small residential project in Kent. The client had a clear idea of what they were looking for but had struggled to find a rooflight company to manufacture a custom made design. It appears that for homeowners looking for a one off custom made glazing solution, most rooflight suppliers are either not interested or...

We have recently opened the doors on our new rooflight showroom at our premises in Devon. The Lumen showroom has three roof structures which display our Heritage conservation rooflight, EVO contemporary skylight, the Planus Accoya flat rooflight and a bespoke design which includes a variety of custom made design options.

The old adage of ‘you get what you pay for’ is often true yet whilst most of us appreciate that a higher price normally reflects an increase in quality, it can be quite difficult to differentiate between certain products and nowhere more so than rooflights.

Often copied but never bettered, the Lumen Heritage conservation rooflight offers the highest standard specification of any conservation rooflight. Today the conservation rooflight market has a vast number of companies offering products that claim to be suitable for heritage or traditional buildings.

Every Lumen bespoke rooflight customer is issued with an approval drawing at the start of the process. This drawing is provided to confirm a number of items about your bespoke rooflight including appearance, sizes, how it operates and how much it weighs. The drawing will also confirm the material your bespoke rooflight is manufactured from and the paint details.

The location of your rooflight installation will have a significant influence on the lifespan offered by the protective paint system. Coastal rooflights or those used in areas of high humidity or areas deemed to have an aggressive atmosphere will require different paint to those in urban and industrial atmospheres with moderate sulphur dioxide pollution.

Our original Lumen conservation rooflight was a close replica of the Victorian cast iron rooflight design found on many Listed building throughout the country. Manufactured from mild steel, the frames are flush fitting but include a double glazed unit and are powder coated in black.

Whilst the thought of using wood for a flat rooflight might initially cause concern, Accoya™ wood is not like other materials and offers all the benefits of aluminium flat rooflights but with additional environmental factors.

The old adage of 'you get what you pay for' is often true yet whilst most of us appreciate that a higher price normally reflects an increase in quality, it can be quite difficult to differentiate between certain products and one example of this is rooflights. To most people rooflights simply allow light and ventilation into their roof space; so what makes one product vary from another and why is price so closely linked with quality?

So you have a requirement for a bespoke rooflight but how do you go about making choices, obtaining a quotation and ultimately ordering your bespoke creation?

We have been supplying our Lumen conservation rooflight for well over a decade. During that time we have changed and upgraded almost every aspect of the design from the steelwork and powder coating through to the liners and glazing specification.
Our aim has always been to provide the best looking and best performing conservation rooflight on the market.

It’s no great surprise that people are attracted to natural light and that most of us feel better when the sun comes out. However, beyond the “feel good” factor there are many tangible benefits to increasing the amount of natural daylighting entering a building. This is particularly true of schools or places of learning as the use of natural light has significant advantages for both students and teachers.

It is interesting just how many companies are keen to tell you that elements of their products are made in the UK. Some will tell you that their products are made in their own factory yet omit to tell you that said factory is half way across the world. When it comes to choosing your rooflight, most products will offer evenly matched performance and even the designs can appear similar. So perhaps looking behind the product at the people that...

With property prices still sky high and land hard to come by, we are now utilising every redundant space in our houses to increase living areas. Also, we have quickly recognised the value in the renovation of redundant churches, farm buildings and service buildings into residential or office quarters.
