For over 30 years Whitesales has led the way in high-performance rooflights. Here, they tell us more…

Roofbase has partnered with rooflight market leaders, Whitesales. Providing our customers with their extensive range of modular rooflight products that readily withstand the elements and are suitable for use with most flat roof systems. Available in-store now.

On average, people spend an estimated 90% of their time indoors and the benefits of optimum levels of daylight and fresh air are well known. Incorporating modern, quality rooflights into a building can be transformational.

Describe Whitesales in one sentence:

We are a market-leading manufacturer of rooflights and flat roof glazing, and we are proud of the long-standing relationships we have built with our customers over many years in the industry.

What makes Whitesales rooflights unique from any of its competitors?

Our products are tried and trusted by professionals – and have been for over 25 years. Reliability, strength, longevity and all-round environmental performance are our watchwords. Our modular rooflights are easy to install and we provide next-day delivery of most standard products anywhere in the UK.

Do Whitesales products come with any guarantees / accreditations?

Whitesales rooflights have an expected life of at least 25 years. All our products hold a guarantee between 1-25 years, depending on the specification. We also offer professional indemnity insurance for custom designs – delivering turnkey assurance for any specification or project.

Are there any unique properties about the glass used within your products?

We offer many specifications of glass across our modular and bespoke range, offering optimal U and g values as well as superior aesthetics. We are very focused as a business on safety and ensuring that all our products meet the highest standards. Most products in our glass range are CWCT tested to Class 1 specification delivering impact safety and environmental control.

Can Whitesales rooflights save money in the long term?

Rooflights in general are a very effective way to achieve cost savings through lower consumption of heating, lighting and power. Lighting can account for up to 33% of energy costs within a building: a roof light will draw in three times as much daylight as a vertical window of the same size. A quality product that has undergone extensive testing will always bring long term cost benefits, with lower total cost of ownership.

Can Whitesales rooflights be used on all building types?

Yes, our extensive range and technical design expertise means that we can provide both ‘off-the-shelf’ products and bespoke glazing solutions for any building in any sector.

What are your most frequently asked questions (and answers) by building and roofing contractors?

Contractors, specifiers and architects frequently want to know specific technical information in relation to products. However, many of our customers simply want to discuss the overall suitability of a product – or ask our recommendation for the best solution for their project. Our highly experienced customer service and technical support teams are always happy to provide advice and guidance.

Do you provide window replacements?

No, we are a specialist manufacturer of rooflights, skylights, flat roof windows and bespoke roof glazing (e.g. lantern lights, northlights, continuous monopitch glazing, barrel vaults and heritage glazing refurbishments).
