Roof Lights

SCS Roofing Roof Lights SurreyRoof light replacement is the service we offer with the most obvious and striking result. Replacing Roof lights can be the most effective method of getting more natural daylight into a commercial building or warehouse.

Roof lights become fragile, brittle and discoloured after approximately 15 years. This is mainly due to the UV light attacking the outer layer of the roof light.

SCS Roofing Roof Lights SussexOld roof lights can be a major cause of water ingress when seals break down or the general fabric of the roof light reaches the end of its life. Generally speaking the lifespan of a roof light will be significantly less than the main roof covering.

The installation of new roof lights can greatly reduce the number of leaks within the building, whilst also providing natural daylight to enhance working conditions.

The difference in light transmission between old and new roof lights could mean that you could turn off your artificial lighting and save on the cost of the electricity.

SCS Roofing Roof Lights KentGlass reinforced polyester resin or (GRP) roof lights are supplied in various thicknesses and with different fire ratings. If there will be a service engineers trafficking the roof non-fragile roof lights should be installed.

If you have a mezzanine floor or single storey building Tinted GRP roof lights can be installed to diffuse light and to reduce glare and solar gain within the building.

Using a selection of leading manufacturers we can find a suitable replacement for existing and discontinued profiles, whether you have an asbestos cement or metal roof system.

If heat loss and condensation are a problem double or triple skin roof lights may be an option.

Roof Light Projects


We recently undertook a contract on a warehouse roof in Worthing, West Sussex which consisted of replacing the old translucent rooflights and carrying out random repairs to the roof to cure the existing leaks.

The old rooflights were dirty and were leaking as the seals had broken down and they had holes in them. They were replaced using new matching profile translucent roof sheets. These were secured using new fixings and are now water-tight and in addition provide much more natural light within the building.

We also cleaned large quantities of moss and old seagull nest debris from the roof and gutters and removed it from site.

We then fitted overlay sheets to cover over any damaged sheets that were causing leaks and re-dressed the flashings around the tank housing.
