Now, it goes without saying that rain is louder on a glass roof than on a tiled one. However, thanks to advances in glazing technology, excessive noise is no longer a problem. For example, all of our roof lanterns come with double glazing as standard, and the gaps between panes help reduce the noise. They’re also firmly fitted with tight seals, which cuts it down even further. And despite the frames being aluminium, don’t worry, even the slimline ones can effectively absorb rain noise.
