Scott Miles Roofing installs sleek and professional lantern roofs for customers throughout Wimborne, Poole, Christchurch, Boscombe, Ferndown, Bournemouth, Southbourne, Westbourne, Parkstone, and the surrounding areas. Lantern roofs are an increasingly popular addition to flat roof extensions and conservatories, being easily fitted onto a pre-existing solid flat roof. They are also a great option as a replacement for old and inefficient conservatory roofs, especially standard polycarbonate roofs which can begin to show their age over the years.
A pitched roof, lantern roofs are made up of slimline frames with large areas of glass. The solid roof surrounding it provides an adaptable pelmet framing that can be decorated and fitted with internal electric lights.
Lantern roofs are designed with a traditional triangular pitch that rises above the surrounding flat roof. From the outside, this creates a classic, sleek look that combines classic conservatory glazing with a solid roof. One the inside, your extension or conservatory will feel like a natural continuation of your home, while still benefitting from natural light.
The lantern’s pitch creates a traditional triangular shape that creates the illusion of more space. The natural light and headroom that the raised pitch creates a bright and roomy space that can be used as anything from a dining room, kitchen extension or even a home office.
Lantern roofs are a great alternative for traditional conservatory roofs, combining the room-like feel of a solid roof with the bright natural light of a glazed system. Roof lights can be easily installed onto an already solid flat roof or be installed as an additional feature when replacing your old conservatory roof. Their lightweight frames and glazing work together to create a roof system that doesn’t put excess weight onto your conservatory, meaning that the body of your conservatory won’t suffer from any load bearing issues upon installation.
Standard polycarbonate conservatory roofs typically last for around 10 to 15 years, while roof lanterns can potentially last up to 25 years. Additional maintenance can help to extend this lifespan, both for your roof and overall conservatory.
