    Hi,

    Anyone know where to get some reasonably priced roof lights for a profile metal roof? The joists are 400mm centres so would like about 3 to go in my workshop-lean to that I'm building. I also have a flat roof at the workshop I'd also like to fit a couple.

    can't you get those transparent plastic roof sheets which match the profile of the metal ones you're using ?

    Yep, roof will be insulated so could go for that and then fit some polycarbonate in the ceiling was another idea. Just want to avoid the dreaded condensation.

    Yeah I thought there might be reasonably priced versions about.

    as long as you seal around the edges a bit (so no top metal surface exposed) you shouldn't get any condensation on the plastic :-)

    This is what I did in the end, will fit some clear sheeting in the ceiling as well.
