If you want to increase the natural light inside your home without installing additional windows, you may wish to consider roof lights or roof lanterns. Roof lighting has been used for many years, but the modern advancements in the technology have allowed for a greater range of options including easy open designs and double glazed models. Our recommended experts are experienced installers of a variety of roof lanterns and roof lights, including flat flush lights, supplying, installing and even repairing your roof lights. This complements the roofing expertise to allow our customers a full service for all things roof related.
Roof lanterns offer an excellent option for homeowners looking to create a stunning showpiece in their property. These architectural features can channel light from all angles to make your room feel and look bigger. Lanterns can open up the ceiling of your room to the sky to maximise light flow and provide room height to adjust the room ergonomics.
The construction of a roof lantern does rely on the use of glazing bars to provide support for the glass. This is visible from underneath, but there are a number of styles that can minimize the impact of these bar connectors, yet allow plenty of light to flow through into your room.
Roof lights are an excellent choice for dormer bedrooms, attic rooms or flat roofs. They can provide additional light into a room without the need to install new windows. This can be particularly beneficial if planning permission may not be granted for installing windows because of constraints such as overlooking neighbours. Regardless of your room orientation, roof lights always face the sky and can provide light on even the gloomiest of days. A roof light can be a fantastic feature if space is at a premium or you don’t want it to be seen from outside. Roof lights sit low on the room and can instantly brighten up your renovation or extension and provide ventilation if necessary.
The most significant difference between roof lanterns and roof lights is the appearance. Both externally and internally, roof lights are barely visible from the ground, whereas a roof lantern can provide an impressive architectural feature to any building. If you have a limited budget, a roof light could offer a more cost effective solution.
Regardless of whether you opt for roof lanterns or roof lights, it is critical to invest in quality glazing that will provide far better insulation to minimize the risk of cold spots in your room and reduce any external noise.
If you are planning a renovation or extension and want to increase the light into the room, you may wish to consider roof lanterns or roof lights. Fortunately, we are here to help. Our recommended experts would be happy to discuss your requirement and help you to determine the best solution for your project. We can help you with supply, installation, and repair of roof lanterns and roof lights to ensure that your home looks its best.

Mr S Fagan
Paul fixed storm damage to my roof. He gave a prompt quote and despite being very busy he repaired the roof in excellent time whilst keeping in contact. Paul was a pleasure to deal with and I would highly recommend his services.
Shaun and his colleagues were very professional and fixed our dangerously leaky garage roof (a complete replacement) in excellent time. We were sent images of their progress and they kept in contact at every stage. We would absolutely recommend them based on our experience. Thanks again, Shaun and Sons!
Mr. and Mrs. Pocklington
Mr short kindly visited during the weekend as a weekday was not convenient for me, offered really good advice and check on an existing flat room that had a leak. Identified problem very quickly that a previous builder had failed to see on numerous visits. Very pleased with the outcome and hopefully no future leaks.
Paul recently fitted a Velux roof light and undertook adjacent roof repairs. Hi attitude and expertise were great and would thoroughly recommend him for similar work. His pricing was fair and reasonable and was fully committed to making my installation waterproof before he left for the day-even though it was dark and raining!
Found leytons details on my trusted expert when we had an unexpected roof leak. From the first time I spoke with him I felt re-assured that not only did he seem very experienced but also was working on my side. Explained all the issues that arose and gave me options. Very pleased to use him and will be going back to him to sort out the back roof soon! Thanks again.
Great service. Paul and his team came the day he said and completely removed and reset all the ridge using a dry fixing system so no more repointing. All this and a couple of other fixes done in a day and as quoted. Great bunch of lads, couldn't be happier.
Excellant service, very helpful with out leaking flat roof .professional job done ,fair price.Would highly recomend him.
The previous roofer i had supposedly fixed the job, but appeared he did not, kept promising to come back, but didn't, left water pouring through my bedroom roof . I contacted Paul returned my call swiftly, came out the following day as i could not make same day. Paul assessed roof and advised what needed to be done to fix the roof. Roof has been fixed 3 days now and we have had lots of heavy rain and i cannot see a drop. I am exceptionally please and will highly reccomend Paul, he is polite and he certainly knows his job. Many Thanks Paul !
