Lofty ambitions

LB Roof Windows has started a campaign to reclaim the Great British attic, aiming to show homeowners the potential that lies in an often neglected part of the home.

With UK properties being on average the smallest in Europe, many homeowners reach a stage where they want to expand their living space – whether that’s by building brick-and-mortar additions to their home, or moving house entirely. But LB Roof Windows argues there’s an extremely viable third option, far easier and cheaper than the other two – reclaiming the attic.

“Across the UK, there are literally hundreds of thousands of attics sitting dormant, underutilised and filled with nothing more than dusty boxes and clutter, and we want to put an end to that,” LB Roof Windows sales director Adrian Cooper said. “There are also hundreds of thousands of people who want more space in their homes, and it’s our aim to show them that repurposing their attic can be a fantastic, cost-effective way to achieve that.”

Adrian continued: “Whatever they turn their attic into, almost every homeowner’s attic conversion project will involve the installation of roof windows – a fantastic way to capitalise on the area that usually has the potential to become the brightest and airiest room in the home.”

LB Roof Windows is a distributor of roof windows and related accessories from the VKR Group, including brands Velux and Dakea. It is also the UK exclusive distributor of the Liteleader and Aurora range of contemporary roof windows.
