Housebuilders looking to amplify a loft’s internal space can look to Dakea for inspiration.
When Jamie and Richie, owners of Sky Blue Lofts, were carrying out a loft conversion on a property in south Wales, they selected Dakea’s Better Safe roof windows. A classical, centre-pivot roof window, Jamie selected the Better Safe for its ideal energy conservation performance, safety and comfort.
The intention of the loft conversion was to create a spacious master bedroom with a fully fitted en-suite bathroom, bespoke fitted wardrobes and eaves storage. In total, six Dakea windows were fitted throughout the room and bathroom to allow for ample lighting. The project began in May of 2019 with the installation process lasting about eight weeks.
The team had only been using Dakea products for six months prior to this loft conversion, having originally been recommended the brand by his local builders’ merchant. Jamie commented that due to the customer service provided by Dakea and first-class quality of the roof windows, he is keen to use the brand on all future projects he works on.
“Dakea products meet all of our requirements in terms of quality, safety, energy efficiency, customer service, client satisfaction and much more,” said Jamie. “The windows are hassle free to install and in addition, by registering the window our clients benefit from Dakea’s 20-year Guarantee, which is a fantastic reassurance for them, backed up by us with our installer’s guarantee.”
With two layers of low emission coating that reflect heat back into the room, the Better Safe roof window provides an excellent thermal transmittance of 1.3 W/m2K. In addition, the Better Safe is equipped with a laminated internal pane, providing protection from glass breakage, and also a toughened exterior pane for increased protection against impact from outside. Together these provide complete safety in case of glass breakage making the windows ideal for bedrooms, playrooms and meeting rooms.
If ventilation is needed, the Better Safe roof window also comes with two additional handle locking positions for flexible air control.
Renato Del-Gaudio, a Sales Consultant at Builders Bitz, the merchant who recommended the Dakea products to Jamie, commented: “We believe in the Dakea brand name because its products are of high quality, we have never had any issues with them and they are of excellent value.
“In addition, our local representative from Dakea, Paul Edwards, is very hands-on. He is quick answer any questions we may have and is always willing to speak to the customer or be on site if needed. We are far more likely to recommend a brand to our customers if we have received a positive experience, as we have done with Dakea.”
