Transform a room with a roof lantern (roof light)

Flat Roof lights are the ideal way of transforming a dull flat roof into a stylish orangery style room, or conservatory flooded with light for a relatively cheap price. We supply our flat roof skylights with a wide range of glazing options to suit your individual needs.
 

A roof light is usually added to a larger, flat roof to give natural light into space or room below. In contemporary use, it is an architectural roof lanterns structure. In the 16th century, France and Italy began usage in orangeries, an early form of a conservatory structure with tall windows and a glazed roof section for wintering citrus trees and other plants in non-temperate climates. These days they are used on properties requiring low pitch roof lanterns, to let in more light & for aesthetic purposes.

Following on from orangery roof lanterns, as the building materials and technology have improved so has the popularity of the roof lantern. It can turn what was a dull flat roof into a bright feature that will enhance any home or living space.

Modern contemporary lanterns benefit from advances in glazing and sealing techniques, plus the development of high-performance insulated glass and sealants. These reduce energy loss and provide water-tightness in the same manner as conventional skylights. Typically, they are constructed using wood, UPVC, or aluminium, or a combination of those materials.

Frequently Asked Questions

Positioning. Where is best?

There is usually a natural position in your room that lends itself to the install of your roof lantern. You may need to consult a builder or your architect to check that there are no structural implications with the installation you are considering.

Are they noisy when it rains?

Like Velux windows, roof lights can be noisy in inclement weather. A roof lantern with its sloping sides is generally a better option.

Do they need planning permission?

Generally, No. Their installation usually falls under the permitted development criteria, as long as they are not higher than the highest part of your roof. As a guide, they must not site any higher than 150mm from the existing roof. If in doubt, call your local planning office for guidance.

What size do I need?

Our roof lanterns work with internal opening measurements. Basically, you need to measure the opening in your roof where the lantern is going to be installed and go from there. For more details please visit our page on how to measure the opening for a roof lantern installation.

How much does it cost to install?

This will largely depend on whether you are going to fit it yourself or employ the services of a tradesperson to fit it for you. Click here for a good guide on the average costs of fitting one...
