Made possible with slimline technology, our aluminium roof lanterns utilise a minimal design. This, however, does not mean that your extension will ever be at risk of draughts or cold spots. Comprised of energy efficient glazing and rafters, each lantern delivers impressively low U-values of just 1.5 W/m²K – that’s twice as thermally efficient as the nearest competitor. This in turn keeps energy bills under control. The space will remain comfortable all year round and the risk of condensation is reduced with these high performance glass roofs.
With roof lanterns at Double Glazing Essex, the amount of natural light capable entering your home is maximised. This is because our roof lanters are a thinner, stronger and lighter design than most. With this added exposure to natural light, it can lead you to rely less on artificial lighting and give your conservatory a more natural feel. With roof lanterns, less is definitely more!

Commonly, these two terms mean more or less the same thing. The technical difference between these two roof glazing options is that a skylight is fitted as part of the roof construction, while a roof lantern is positioned above the roof. Sky lantern roof, lantern roof window and lantern skylight window are other terms for this type of roof glazing in Essex.
Aluminium roof lanterns in Essex are becoming increasingly popular. They are fantastic at making the most of the natural light from the sun. This is of course aesthetically pleasing and good for your well-being. Lantern roofs also provide a stunning feature to your home and can easily make rooms look bigger. Aluminium is also extremely strong with slim frames, helping to maximise the amount of light that comes into the room.

Thanks to permitted development rights, you will generally not need planning permission to install a roof lantern in your home. However, you must ensure that you adhere to the stipulations that are mentioned in those rules set out by the permitted development. These include rules such as your roof lantern not being any higher than the top part of the roof, not extending 15cm above the sloped plane of a roof or those that are on a side elevation roof slope having to have obscure glazing.
Roof lanterns are normally installed in home extensions, conservatories and orangeries. They can often be installed on any shape or size of roof.
