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


During November 2018 we carried out some repair work at a workshop in Goring by Sea, Worthing, West Sussex.

The moss was removed from the roof and the gutters cleaned out. The waste was lowered to ground level and removed from site.

30 no. old translucent rooflights were replaced with new factory assembled box section translucent roof sheets which increased natural daylight within the buildings as well as curing a number of leaks and helping to prevent condensation.

To cover over damaged and cracked sheets a number of matching profile overlay sheets were fitted.

New ski-slope flashings and rubberised pipe flashings were fitted to ensure all the roof penetrations were sealed.

The first 2 no. pictures show the roof after and before the repairs. The 3rd picture shows the difference in light transmission of a replaced rooflight.

During August 2018 we carried out some repair work at a factory in Benfleet, Essex.

In total 42 no. old translucent rooflights were replaced with new translucent roof sheets.

This increased natural daylight within the building so much that the client was able to turn their lights off during the day.

A damaged flashing was also replaced using a new purpose manufactured steel flashing.

The pictures below show the after and before externally as well as an internal picture with just one side being changed.

During July 2018 we carried out some repair work at a yacht yard in Hamble, Hampshire.

In total 80 no. old translucent rooflights were replaced with new translucent roof sheets which increased natural daylight within the buildings as well as curing a number of leaks.

3 no. gutters were leaking so we fitted new liners. Two different systems were used due to the different types and condition of the guttering.

A Unifold gutter was fitted to 1 no. gutter whilst a flexible gutter liner was fitted to other 2 no. gutters.

To cover over damaged sheets a number of matching profile overlay sheets were fitted.

The 1st two pictures show some of the rooflights and one of the gutters whist the 3rd and 4th picture are after and before shots of one of the gutters.

During the heatwave in June 2018 we replaced 42 no. old rooflights with new translucent roof sheets in a warehouse roof in Morden, Surrey. This increased the natural daylight transmission as well as ensuring the rooflights weren’t leaking.

The existing roof fixings were rusting and we therefore replaced them with new precision formed fixings with integral heads.

In addition we fitted 2 no. flashings to ensure pipes that protrude through the roof were effectively sealed and removed 1 no. redundant pipe and fitted flashings over the exposed hole to ensure it is effectively sealed.

In May 2018 we fitted 2 no. new opening rooflights into a pitched steel roof which was situated over the offices in Guildford Surrey.

The rooflights had new ski-slope flashings fitted all round to ensure the area was water-tight. Additional flashings were also fitted to divert the water away from the new domed rooflights.

The new rooflights let additional natural light into the rooms below. They are also able to open to provide ventilation and to help the heat escape on hot days.

During April and May 2018 we carried out a strip and re-sheet of a warehouse roof in Worthing West Sussex.

The old double skin asbestos cement sheeting was stripped, loaded into skips and removed.

New 120mm thickness composite panel sheeting incorporating factory assembled rooflights was fitted in its place.

The rooflights had a white tint applied to help reduce glare and solar gain within the building.

On one side the roof was extended past the existing concrete gutter and new half round guttering and a new fascia was fitted to the outside wall.

The other gutter adjoined a higher level flat roof so a new membrane gutter liner was fitted.

During February and March 2018 and whilst working around the snow and bad weather, we replaced 52 no. old rooflights with new translucent roof sheets to a warehouse roof in Borough Green, Sevenoaks. This increased the natural daylight transmission dramatically as well as ensuring the rooflights weren’t leaking.

In addition we fitted 20 no. overlay sheets to cover over cracked and damaged sheets that were causing leaks, as well as covering over any of the original sheets that were delaminating badly.

Upon completion the roof was leak free and the appearance was enhanced as the client was trying to let the building.

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.
