An overhead conversion that brightens your household

First introduced to the UK in the Georgian era, Roof lanterns are a variety of skylight that more easily allows light to flood into a room from the ceiling. Also known as roof lights, these much-sought-after fittings are increasingly a mainstay of British interior design.

Available in uPVC, timber and aluminium, roof lanterns are the ideal addition to any property or its conservatory, dramatically transforming the inside of a room without needing to change the overall aesthetic of your home.

Low maintenance

Roof Lanterns are so easy to maintain during their lifetime simply needing a wipe down should they ever become dirty. They are also not susceptible to warping, discolouring or flexing, acting as a strong and reliable conservatory style.

Thermally efficient

Benefitting from high quality uPVC or timber, roof lanterns are good at keeping the light in and cold out. Various additional design features can also be incorporate to make your roof lantern more distinct. Either way, it’s a unique addition made from the same material as your extension to retain heat.

Beautiful aesthetics

Roof lanterns transform a room. The increase of natural light; the visibility of sky and consequent sense of openness and clarity; the addition of a focal point for eye – all make this fitting something of a centrepiece in any interior, or indeed any conservatory. Furthermore, the ambience changes with coming of day and night, offering up sunny vista and bright stars accordingly.

Things to consider when buying

A roof lantern in its traditional form is essentially a glass and timber structure, that resembles a shape similar to a miniature conservatory roof. Albion windows can install your new roof lantern in any material you wish:

  • uPVC – a uPVC roof lantern is a good choice for those wanting an easy install and no additional fuss. Because uPVC does not corrode or rust, it’s extremely easy to maintain, meaning you can fit your roof lantern and enjoy it without worrying about upkeep.
  • Timber – for those wanting that classic look, only timber will do. This material is the choice of tradition, and as such, will always retain a certain cache and authentic feel.
  • Aluminium – for low-maintenance, a sleek look, and a distinctly modern feel, aluminium is the definite choice.

In order to start benefiting from all the features a bespoke roof lantern from Albion has to offer, homeowners will first need to gain planning permission. As roof lanterns are categorised as a ‘material alteration’ they will most likely require building regulation approval, but Albion can offer free and impartial on-hand advice, to make this process easier for you!
