Roof Maker Wrexham

When Ben and Laura bought their Grade II listed home eight years ago, it wasn’t in bad condition, but it had previously been owned by an older couple and was quite old fashioned.

Despite its dated style, the couple thought it had lots of character and could see the potential to modernise and extend the property, creating extra living space for their growing family of three children.

Creating brighter larger space

As Laura had found the original room dark and quite oppressive at times, they wanted a modern extension that was as light and bright as possible, whilst retaining its period features.  Due to their home’s listed status in a conservation area, it would require permission from conservation and heritage officers.

Although the original intention was to have four rooflights; two on either side of the apex, the couple ideally wanted to have two much larger ones instead.

After internet research, Ben and Laura chose two Conservation Luxlite triple glazed rooflights which have a traditional appearance, and modern thermal performance, ideal for old and listed properties.  These were custom made to the exact sizes they wanted.  Ben said: “Whatever you wanted, they could make, which just suited us down to the ground.”

Both conservation and heritage departments were also happy with the size and design of the Conservation Luxlite.

The Result

The couple are delighted with the outcome.  The rooflights were delivered to the property exactly as planned, were easy to install and have really opened up the extension, creating the light, spacious and comfortable living space that they wanted.

Ben said: “They’re an absolute showstopper. People walking through the front door for the first time are, like, ‘wow’ when they see how bright it is and the actual size and scale of the rooflights.”
