Can I have a fully glazed roof on an extension?

When it comes to transforming your property, extensions are a great way to add space and to also boost your home’s value. One question that is often queried with extensions is whether you can fit a glazed roof on an extension. The answer is yes! If you wanted to do something different with the extension, then a fully glazed roof could certainly provide something different. There are also benefits to going fully glazed with the roof too.

Better thermal performance

With fully glazed roofing, you’re allowing the day’s sunlight to shine on in, and because of the glazing, it’s going to trap the majority of that heat. And as a result of that, it’s going to provide better thermal performance for your extension and the rest of your home. Saving you money is an extra benefit! At Oakley Green, we offer our customers a range of glazed roof options and can install bespoke designed glass roofs to match your exact specifications. All our glass roofs are highly energy-efficient and will enable you to use your extension all year round whatever the weather.

A room with a view

There’s nothing quite like looking up and seeing a full view of the sky, regardless of whether it’s in the early morning or at the end of the day when the sun is setting. Having a fully glazed roof is going to give you a room with a spectacular view and an abundance of natural light.

Let the light shine in

And finally, the extra glass in the room is going to help natural daylight shine in. This creates a warmer and more welcoming environment for your home in general. It’s something you would not get if you had a traditional roof and increased levels of natural light in a home have been shown to improve mood and create a feeling of well-being.
