How the rooflight installation process works: from ordering to a finished home extension

When it comes to getting a job done, you don’t want to complicate things. Stress is an unnecessary burden on life, so you want to make sure you have as little as possible. That’s why, when it comes to the rooflight installation process, you want peace of mind that the job’s going to be completed on time and without any complications.

With Vario by VELUX, we aspire to support both homeowners and professionals with a list of services that realise your rooflight dream idea and bring it to life with an installation process that’s smooth from start to finish.

Daylight Design Studio

When it comes to a roof extension or more elaborate home renovation, you’ll spend a lot of time envisioning the future, from the overall theme and idea right down to the smaller details. To ensure that your vision becomes a reality, we aspire to give you the best possible options and our Daylight Design Studio helps you do just that.

This Vario by VELUX service takes your ideas from dream to reality, thanks to the Daylight Design Studio which creates a digital extension of your space, giving you a glance at what the future looks like.

You can see your plans in 3 different versions, and we’ll show you how your home extension or renovation will look with and without bespoke rooflights in two different designs, allowing you to see exactly what the finished project will look like before any work begins.

On-roof delivery

Enjoy a smooth and stress-free installation of your rooflights with our on-roof delivery service. Working with professional partners who take great care and deliver the ultimate service, Vario by VELUX offers crane solutions like no one else, capable of expertly assessing what’s needed and delivering.

Our crane solution partners assess the location, accessibility and lifting height after performing a site visit to determine what’s needed. After a site visit, our partner will then work out the price of the quote (normally between £1,300 and £1,800 ex VAT if we do not have to apply for road closure) and then move forward with the on-roof delivery and installation. It’s a process that negates a lot of issues and makes the crucial part of the building project run as smoothly as possible, allowing made-to-order rooflights to be installed with ease and giving you peace of mind.

Rooflight installation

It’s not just an on-roof delivery that Vario by VELUX offers. We provide a full installation service, thanks to our VIP trade partners. From delivery to craftsmanship, roofers and even electricians, we have the means to offer all our customers with a thorough installation service that leaves no stone unturned or rooflight out of place.

There’s no substitute for qualified technicians who know what’s needed to get the job done and with our rooflight installation partners, you’re in safe hands. We’ll work with you to identify what’s required and then share their quotes with you - this will be determined by the location, interior work needed, labour required and of course, the size and number of rooflights. The cost of these works can vary, and prices can range from £1,500 to £6,000 depending on the complexity of the project.
