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.

Outstanding service from Ben. He kept in touch, provided a competitive quote, arrived when he promised, carried out the work and kept me updated on progress, finished the job to a high standard and all in a friendly and professional way. I would not hesitate to call on his services again when my other tiled roofing repairs are needed. Highly recommended.
Full roof re-tile done. Agreed a great price, work was started within 2 weeks. The driveway was swept spotlessly clean each day. The new tiles look great. There were a couple of areas of the fascia that had come away with the vibrations of the work and they even came back once the job was finished to correct those little areas to make sure that we were 100% happy with the job. I'd recommend Trevor and his team to anybody. He gave good advice and explained the details of the job to us every step of the way.
A big thank you to Trevor and his crew, for a good job. Very friendly and polite and always cleaned up after themselves. I would recommend Northern Roofing. Thank you once again.
Thoroughly recommend this company. Our roof was in a real state (300 year old barn.). Fair price and they kept to it. Always tidy and courteous. Completed in half the time we expected.
Trevor and his team were efficient and reliable and communication was excellent at every stage of the job. Nothing was too much trouble- for instance, Trevor sourced Welsh green slates to replace damaged slates which matched the existing ones perfectly. Mick and Dean worked really hard and we are really pleased with the final result.
The job was completed quickly and as specified. New roof tiles, felting and new gutters. The price was competitive too.
Would definitely recommend - Trevor answered all my questions I had - the team worked very quickly and effectively. Love my new roof!
