In contrast, roof lanterns extend upwards, have multiple panels and resemble glass pyramids. In general, they’re bigger and wider than roof lights. They let more light in but have one drawback; they can only be placed on flat surfaces. You’ve likely seen them on top of orangeries or other extensions and despite being one of the oldest architectural designs in the world, there’s a timeless quality about them.
Popular Roof Glazing Options
Roof lanterns and roof lights (or skylights if you prefer) have never really gone out of fashion, but we’ve noticed they’re incredibly popular at the moment. There’s been a trend in the home improvement industry to replace glass conservatory roofs with solid ones, but homeowners don’t want to cut out the overhead light. Consequently, they’re looking for alternative glazing options and they’re turning to roof lights and lanterns.
Whichever one you go for, you’ll make a dramatic difference to the aesthetic of your home. Our roof lights and lanterns benefit from modern technology; they come with double glazing as standard and offer exceptional thermal efficiency. They’re also secure, durable and as aluminium is a comparatively lightweight metal, don’t place too much pressure on the structure of the building. We’re also happy to confirm that contrary to popular belief, they aren’t noisy when it rains.
