5 Benefits of Modern Roof Lanterns

At Glass House, we install a wide range of double glazed products, including double glazed roof lanterns, windows, doors, and conservatories. There are many benefits to upgrading your home with our modern double glazing, and below, we’ve listed 5 of the benefits that our roof lanterns can grant your home to bring it into the modern age.


What Is A Roof Lantern?

Before we jump into the benefits of roof lanterns, it’s important to know what a roof lantern is and where it can be installed. Roof lanterns, or lantern roofs as some call them, are a type of glass roof that can be incorporated into any kitchen, dining room, living area, conservatory, or orangery. They are a highly popular choice for contemporary architecture as they can help open up a home with the illusion of space – a benefit in its own right. 


Whether you live in a modern new build or an older traditional style home, our double glazed roof lanterns can come in a wide variety of designs to suit your property best. Get in touch with our team via our contact form, and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible with more information on the types we have available. Alternatively, you can start your enquiry right away with our online quoting engine.


  • Natural Light

While modern windows are capable of providing excellent levels of natural light to the interior of a home, our roof lanterns are unmatched when it comes to lighting. Our lantern roof lights have slim sightlines, so while they remain uncompromising on security and durability, they can still offer unrivalled views of the outside skyline.


  • Energy Efficiency

As energy bills continue to rise, finding ways to reduce reliance on heating methods to stay warm and comfortable is paramount. One of the best ways to improve your home’s energy efficiency is to upgrade any old single glazed windows, doors, and roof lights with new double or triple glazing. As a standard, all of our roof lights and lanterns come with double glazing. 


A double glazed roof light traps heat between its panes, letting it continue heating your home instead of being wasted. As heat rises, roof lanterns can be an even more essential upgrade than even windows! A more energy-efficient home can do more than just help you stay cosy and save money; it can also improve your carbon footprint, letting you feel good about helping your local environment.


  • Low Maintenance

One of the major benefits of our roof lanterns is that they are made from highly durable, recyclable materials. Not only can they provide excellent performance in terms of thermal efficiency, but they can do so for literally decades. Aluminium is a lightweight material that doesn’t rust, and strong weather seals surround our double glazing to help reduce the chance of condensation buildup.


No one likes the chore of difficult housekeeping, and our lantern roofs can provide peace of mind as they continue to look and perform at their best no matter the Welsh weather.


  • Stylish Designs

We have a range of designs and types of roof lanterns available, including flat roof lanterns, glass roofs and pointed lantern roofs. Each one is also available in a variety of colours to help them blend in with your existing windows and doors. Plus, since we have a complete range of windows, doors, and conservatories, you can get a totally seamless aesthetic by upgrading all of your homes with us. You won’t need to go anywhere else for your home improvement projects. 


Each of the colours we use for our lantern roofs is robust and vibrant, capable of lasting for years to come without the need for repainting, varnishing, or new coats. Even when exposed to harsh weather conditions, they won’t fade or scratch off, which is great considering their hard-to-reach location!


  • Insulated From Sound

Our final benefit of getting a roof lantern installation is the sound insulation that they can provide. Thick double or triple glazing absorbs sound as it passes through, helping to create a more private environment. You can enjoy increased natural light, beautiful sightlines, incredible efficiency, and a quieter home. 


Alternatively, you can make more noise within your home, like during parties, without disturbing any nearby neighbours as much.
