Lantern Roof - Roof Lanterns

The Lantern conservatory style was the original conservatory style when they were known as orangeries. For those with the right budget, a lantern roof makes a fantastic statement of grandeur and elegance.

Lantern roofs feature a two-tier roof on different levels, creating a 'wedding-cake' effect. The two levels can be separated by a row of windows that is highly stylish and makes this style ideal for period properties of Victorian and Edwardian vintage, They can be added to existing flat roofs or incorporated in to a new extension.With lantern roofs, the overall impression is of height, light and grandeur. A lantern conservatory roof is spacious and offers an uninterrupted view of the sky. With a two-tiered roofing structure, you get to use more windows, which means that more ventilation is available. We also offer a range of electrically powered opening side windows and roof vents, that can be thermostatically controlled.

A roof lantern is becoming a popular choice for extensions especially flat roof. We specialise in both a supply only service (please email your dimensions for a cost) and a supply/fit service. We have fitted numerous examples across Hampshire & Wiltshire. The picture at the bottom of the page shows three on one garden roof extension, complete with a modern conservatory to the left.

Combining your new roof with the latest high insulation self cleaning glass in a subtle blue tint can create a stunning effect to a flat roof. We can now also offer a 44mm triple glazed version in aluminium. See our web page Roof Glazing Options for further details.
