Rooflights are reported to bring in around 40% more light than dormers. But it is not just loft conversions that can benefit from rooflights — side-return extensions, gloomy corridors and extensions to those awkward ‘middle rooms’ that so often suffer from a lack of natural light can all be brightened up by the addition of one or two rooflights — or even better, a continuous run of them.
