Do the louvres on the roof turrets and clocktowers work?


As standard the louvred sides are dummy grp louvres made to look like real louvres. If you would like to vent fresh air through the louvres then we can router slots to provide some free air movement or alternatively the grp sides can be replaced with Aluminium ventilation louvres if required for more substantial venting.




How do I install a Roof Turret or Clocktower


All of our Roof Turrets and Clocktowers require a timber subframe to which they are bolted down to during installation. The timber subframe needs to be created by a roofer as it forms an integral part of your roof and will need waterproofing too, generally with Lead. See our installation guide for further help.




Do you only offer this design of roof turret?


As standard we produce this one design however not only have we amassed lots of moulds over the years that can be offered too, including arched louvre panels, hexagonal and octagonal designs, we also have the ability to produce bespoke designs too. Simply send us your requirements and we will price it for you.




Can I add a clock to my roof turret to make it a clocktower?


Yes, you can add one, two, three or four clocks to your Roof Turret from any of our standard ranges of exterior clocks or a bespoke design to suit your requirements.
