    Efficiency

    The UK’s most energy efficient lantern roof

    Offering industry-leading thermal performance, our double or triple glazed roof lanterns provide Hampshire and West Sussex homeowners year round enjoyment. Twice as thermally efficient as its nearest competitor, boasting U-values as low as 0.7 W/m2K triple glazed or 1.2 double glazed. The inclusion of argon gas and warm edge space bar technology also reduces the chance of ‘cold spots’, condensation and mould issues further down the line.

    Our roof lanterns also provide twice the insulation of standard double glazing, thanks to a proactive combination of low emissivity glass and argon gas. So, you can expect lower heating and air conditioning bills, alongside robust protection against severe weather conditions.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    We’re sure you’ve got some questions or queries about the roof lanterns that we can offer. If you can’t find an answer below, don’t hesitate to get in touch.

    Do roof lanterns need planning permission?

    Typically not, if they are being used to replace an existing roof structure. If lantern roofs or skylights do not project more than 150mm above the existing roof, lantern roof installation should post fewer building regulations and planning permission issues than most. Feel free to get in contact to discuss this further.

    How long will my roof lantern take to install?

    Once you have placed your order, our surveyor will be in contact within 7 days. Once the survey is complete, an installation co-ordinator will be in touch within 3 weeks to confirm an installation date that suits both parties. Fitting schedules remain flexible due to unforeseen circumstances, such as the weather.

    How do you clean a lantern style roof?

    Your lantern roof glass requires less maintenance than most - with its special self-clean coating as standard it intelligently uses daylight and rainwater to effectively break down and wash away dirt and grime.
