Welcome to our News page – where you can keep up to date with latest developments and events at Minera Roof Trusses along with developments within the industry.
Roof windows make a significant difference to any room, whether it be loft conversions, extensions or any innovative residential or commercial designs. There are many benefits to having roof windows incorporated into your design as they allow for good ventilation, create additional light and they act as a heating system which ultimately saves money on energy costs.
When considering the design of your build, it is helpful to know that you do not need planning permission to install roof windows, unless your roof window exceeds what is considered an acceptable size (no more than 150mm above existing roof plane and a side-facing opening window should be at least 1.7m from ground level). This is due to the style of them, as they tend not to overlook neighbour’s buildings, which means that you won’t be limited by restrictions when it comes to your design.
We have narrowed down the top benefits of roof windows by looking at two of our trusted suppliers, Velux and Keylite, who have a variety of incredible roof window options available.
If you require roof windows for your project, we are pleased to be able to offer you a discounted trade price when ordered directly through us. If you have any questions or would like to discuss roof windows further please contact us or refer to our website.

We had the pleasure of a visit from Ken Skates AM and Ian Lucas MP on Friday 6th October. The meeting was a great opportunity to discuss how Minera Roof Trusses along with its sister companies WREXRENT and DMR North Wales operate.
Later on in the afternoon, we were able to escort them to see DMR North Wales’ latest development site at Pen-Y-Bryn, Wrexham. The development was previously a series of derelict shops which is currently being redeveloped as a site of 24 two bedroom apartments. DMR North Wales has undertaken this development in its aim to provide high quality, modern accommodation for residents within the central location of Wrexham which Minera Roof Trusses were pleased to get on board with. We showcased our contribution of roof trusses and timber cassette panels to which there was welcomed praise and feedback.
Ken Skates AM and Ian Lucas MP both greeted the visit with enthusiasm and encouraged the regenerative impact that the site would bring to Pen-Y-Bryn and Wrexham. We discussed many of our future plans and look forward to inviting both Ken Skates AM and Ian Lucas MP back to see our joint developments as they progress further.
Over 20 obstacles and 12 muddy miles later, our Minera Roof Trusses Pobl Bydr team completed Tough Mudder on Sunday 10th September. A fantastic display of team effort was shown throughout the challenge in order to raise money for JDRF, a charity which drives discoveries and developments in research to support those with type 1 diabetes. We are exceedingly happy to say that we have reached over our target and have raised £1,150 for the charity. A huge well done to Marc, Ian, Jon, Anthony, Huw and Rob!
This week we were extremely proud to see our space joists feature on this week’s episode of Grand Designs. We were involved in supplying the joists for the extraordinary project in Malvern. The unusual development saw the owners create a building inspired by the open plan living and views they had experienced whilst living in New Zealand. Positioning the structure on the side of a steep hill certainly presented them with challenges but we think the struggle was worth it as the end result is absolutely breath taking. Our space joists not only provided the stability and structure for the flooring, their unique metal web design enabled the owners to install a full MVHR system within the floor space ensuring a highly ecological solution for heating the home.
