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.
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.
Mike did a great job cleaned up well after and disposed of all the rubbish. Will use again and would recommend him to anyone.
We had worked carried out last year that was excellent by Micheal. He was very polite, tidy and reliable. Had a small problem and he came straight out and corrected it. Would definitely recommend.
Michael was quick to investigate and identify the source of my leak and resolved the issue promptly for a very fair price. He was really easy to talk to and I'd highly recommend him to others looking to get roofing work completed!
RFR made the time to come out and inspect the bay roof which had leaked in the previous night following a heavy storm. He explained that it needed a repair not a replacement and set to work straight away. They explained very clearly what needed doing and the the cost involved, which was very reasonable. We were very relieved to say the least, having assumed the roof might need a very costly replacement. We would have been none the wiser had someone confirmed our worse fears. RFR were very honest and helpful and even troubled to advise us on how to make good the damage to the inside decoration. We would not hesitate to use RFR again and can recommend him without reservation.
Saved me from a real emergency. Great care from start to finish. Would highly recommend.
Paul and his team did a first class job after we had been let down by other people. Someone who turns up and does what he says he’ll do. I have no hesitation in recommending this company for any roof repairs.
Michael is very knowledgeable and his advice was invaluable in deciding the best option to repair my ridge tiles on my roof. His quote was very competitive and the standard of his work was very high, moreover he ensured that any mess was tidied up and taken away for disposal. I have not hesitation in recomending MK Maintenance.
Good service kept us informed from start to finish roofers on time and polite
Warren was so professional and helpful. Warren put right our guttering that was done so poorly by a different company. We are extremely happy with the service and wouldn't hesitate to employ him again for future roofing work. Thank you.

Paul Williams responded immediately and visited to survey the job and explained what was required - very friendly chap. A week later I received a quote. My inclination is to take up Paul’s quote but I am ‘still’ waiting for other quotes from other companies before committing myself.
Called on Monday afternoon, Toby came out the next morning and my roof leak was sorted in the afternoon by Mark and Shaun, Thankyou guys for such great service and the price was good too.
Michael did a fantastic job repairing my roof and replacing guttering. Friendly, reliable and advised me on any further work that needed to be done. He will be coming back to repair my chimney. He also worked neatly and cleaned up any debris from the work. Would absolutely recommend Michael to friends and colleagues.
