Rooflights for Renovators

Overhead glazing is a key element of most renovations, whether on a loft conversion, extension or a reconfiguration of existing space. Emily Brooks explains how to boost daylight on these projects

If quality of space is just as important to you as quantity, then there are few features you’ll prize more highly than a rooflight.
