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.

Friendly and helpful. Kept to appointment arranged. Quoted for work required. Seems very reasonable.
Warren was very helpful, knowledgeable and efficient in helping with my roof problem . He arrived same day and was a very reasonable price. Can highly recommend!
Paul and his team did an excellent job on our roof repairing storm damage and fitting dry ridge and verge systems. He is very knowledgeable and uses top quality materials. He is also friendly and polite. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to friends and family.
Mark did a great job and handled everything professionally- wasn’t the cheapest but price was reasonable . A proper quote rather than a verbal estimate. Will definitely definitely use him again.
I made contact with Ashley after suffering roof damage during the recent storms. I was asked to send a photo of the damage and he responded with an estimate, which I accepted. Within two days he came as promised and made a very good repair to damaged roof tiles. My neighbours all agree that his work looks excellent.
Fantastic service, we had an emergency that although couldn’t be fully resolved immediately, they made sure it was watertight in the meantime. Now the job is finished and I am so pleased. Would recommend these experienced knowledgeable and nice guys to any one for their services. Thanks!
The service from Mark was first class. We received a quote for the repair work required as a result of storm Eunice the same day I requested his roofing repair service. He visited and completed the necessary work the next day.
100% happy . Mark and Ashley were excellent very fast responding to our call after storm Eunice . They have high standards of workmanship are trustworthy and friendly deserve all praise given. Will be our chosen business for any future work.
We phoned Micheal on a Friday evening, he come out Saturday Morning at 9.30, we had a few roof tiles slip, he did the work, to a high standard, he even removed some moss what was sitting on the top guttering, which could of caused another problem, Michael is a Calm , easy to talk to man, who listens , he also tells you , what the problem is , how his going to fix it, and a very reasonable price. I will definitely recommend him to anyone. His already done my neighbours slipped tiles.
Good efficient service but at a price!
Paul is a really nice guy. He gave a sensible quote for the job and stuck to it. He carried out the work on the day and time that he'd promised. Everything quoted for was carried out to the letter and the site was left clean and tidy.
Very prompt and quick service. All work carried out as per quote within a few days. Would recommend.
Michael was there when I needed my roof fixed, he came round in short notice gave me a price and was there fixing the leak whilst I was sleeping after my nightshift, when I awoke the job was done, I hope Michael will be there for me again if I need him in the future. I would definitely recommend him to friends and family. He is a good and reliable honest tradesman.
Cannot fault the work done on the roof. The men who carried out our roof repair and maintenance did so to a very high standard.
Warren did a super job for me, sorting out my broken tile and gutters quickly and without fuss. Wouldn't hesitate to use again, thank you.
Warren responded very quickly, was able to come the same day to take a look at and eventually repair a leaky roof. Very knowledgable and professional. And the leak is fixed!
Paul Williams got in touch when he said he would, gave the quote and did the job within reasonable time, somewhat set back by the weather. He was very easy to deal with and responded immediately to my emails. Full marks for that! I will use him again if I have a problem.
Thoroughly recommend Paul. Contacted Paul after another roofer left us with a leaking flat roof and was unable to resolve the issue. Paul replaced the flat roof and no more leak. Would definitely use him again
5 tiles replaced and gutter work including facias and gutter cleaning. Michael from MK maintenance carried out some work on my mum’s house done a great job and would highly recommend very clean and tidy and we would definitely use for further work and to recommend to family and friends thanks.
