    Why choose

    arrow Back to blog 17th July 2017

    We have been pioneering the UK rooflight market for more than a decade, providing high-specification rooflights for residential and commercial projects and architectural skylights with outstanding performance and contemporary style.

    We’re a manufacturer that’s been recognised regionally, nationally and internationally for the build quality of each new rooflight and architectural skylights that leaves our manufacturing centre in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk.


    In fact, our continued investment in design and manufacture culminating in us being awarded the first BSI Kitemark for a rooflight, setting new benchmarks for air permeability, weather tightness and extreme wind loading.


    In addition, our recent partnership with the National Association of Rooflight Manufacturers (NARM) is enabling us to work with others in the industry to develop new safety and performance standards, including the use of laminated inner glass panes, to further enhance the protection of our customers.


    We work closely with architects, property developers, self-builders and homeowners across the country, supplying architectural skylights, designed to maximise the amount of natural light filtering into any type of property.


    Our design flexibility makes us a popular choice with specifiers. With up to 165 different skylight combinations to choose from, each style and shape providing outstanding thermal performance and durability, whatever type of rooflight you require, we have a solution for you.


    But don’t just take our word for it; here’s the view of Sunsquare from some of our valued long-term clients:


    Ticking the boxes for architects

    We work closely with architects to transform technical drawings into real-life, contemporary style for their clients. Whether it’s a sliding rooflight for a stunning new roof terrace, unobtrusive pyramid skylights for a daylight-filled home extension or something entirely bespoke to the needs of an architect – such as our little box of tricks at Rose Valley – we’re committed to providing the perfect rooflight solution.


    William Foster, Foster Lomas Architects

    “As architects and specifiers, we are constantly on the look-out for new products, better systems and technology [for our projects]. Sunsquare tick all of these boxes.


    “Using skylights allow properties to gain much more natural light than they would otherwise have. There’s something wonderful about being able to see the sky directly above whilst sitting within your house.


    “Sunsquare’s skylights have always been one of the easier elements to install in our projects, ensuring the properties are weathertight, warm and naturally daylit.


    “Sum up Sunsquare’s capabilities in one sentence? Well-performing products at reasonable costs.”


    Long-standing working relationships with developers

    Whether it’s one-off or multiple property developments, we’re entrusted by a host of experienced developers across the country to supply rooflights for flat roofs that add a touch of class to any project, connecting a property’s exterior with its interior.


    James Carlin, 4C Developments, Putney, London

    “We’ve been working with Sunsquare for over 10 years now; and the quality of the product and the efficiency of the overall service have been the key factors in our long-standing working relationship.


    “The sales team at Sunsquare have always been a pleasure to work with.  From start to finish – from initial enquiry through to delivery and installation – the whole team are fantastic.


    “Any residential or commercial project that is looking to encourage more daylight into living and working areas below, Sunsquare will have a solution for you.


    “[Sunsquare’s industry-first BSI Kitemark] is very important to us. It provides surety for our clients and gives them reassurance on product quality so that, in the event of a property sale further down the line, there are no issues.


    “We’d highly recommend Sunsquare to anyone. They’re our only choice for all things skylights.”


    Transforming living environments across the country

    We’re one of the most sought-after flat roof skylight manufacturers in the UK for homeowners looking to transform living areas with abundant levels of natural daylight. Whether it’s an urban Central London location or a picturesque countryside retreat, our rooflights deliver unrivalled performance and style for consumers time and again.


    Maxine Brady, interior stylist and journalist

    “I was really attracted to the simple, modern design of the Horizon rooflights; it’s very fuss-free.


    “Sunsquare were brilliant at supplying the rooflight at very short notice. From start to finish, the whole process took less than five weeks to make a bespoke rooflight for my roof terrace.


    “As an interior stylist and journalist, I wanted a rooflight that would not only look good but most importantly be safe. The Sunsquare team were happy to supply me with documentation to guarantee the safety and security of my skylight.”


    Regis Crepy, Suffolk-based chef

    “I had been recommended rooflights by our property’s architect, who informed me that our new construction would suit these structures to bring an enormous amount of natural light.


    “My architect liaised with Sunsquare who came up with a proposal for two flat roof skylights and on the day of installation they were fitted within the hour.


    “They worked together to design a product that completely revolutionised the environment of our family kitchen – connecting the outside world with our home.”


    If you’re looking for a company that never settles for second best, both in terms of rooflight and architectural skylights design and performance, please give our friendly and experienced sales team a call today to discover the possibilities for your next project.
