Contemporary and carbon-neutral home is flooded with natural light with the help of Roof Maker.

We were proud to see our skylights complement this property, which in 2016 featured on Grand Designs.

Situated on the edge of the West Pennine Moors in Bolton’s beautiful countryside, this eco-home was the work of builder Paul Rimmer. The quality and finish of the property highlights how in his career, Paul has honed his expertise on many home-building projects.

A bricklayer by trade, this traditional craftsman hasn’t shied away from modernity. From the timber frame to the large and open-plan living areas, this is a property which oozes modernity and style.

Such a contemporary finish couldn’t have been achieved without our fixed flat rooflights, which allow natural light to accentuate the clean lines of the sharp white interior.

Stairwells and landings are traditionally hard areas to light, but the effective use of large dual flat rooflights has helped solve this problem.

Instead of a stairwell lacking in sunlight, it instead has windows not only on both sides, but also above. This creates an area which effectively traps natural light, and is sure to be a feature-piece of this outstanding property.

Close affinity with the surrounding idyllic countryside was the overall aim of this environmentally-friendly home. What better way for this to property to blend with its surroundings than to allow sunlight to stream in from all angles?

As well as complementing the look of the home, our skylights help it work towards its energy efficiency goals. With natural light flooding in, there’s less need to use electric lighting, and the thermal performance of the rooflights is second to none.

Their triple glazing performs up to 40% better than regular double glazed rooflights. As in this case, large areas of space can be devoted to skylights without concern that they will lead to heat loss.

It was great to see our rooflights contribute to this zero-carbon home, and we’re eagerly awaiting the chance to work on more similar projects in the future.
