A Lantern roof combines a collection of angled glazed panels that normally surrounds a flat roof, creating a glass focal centre. With a thermally broken aluminium or uPVC cluster they provide superb thermal insulation. With solar control and self-cleaning glass, you never have to worry about losing any of the room’s warmth.
Lantern roofs are the ideal solution if a fully glazed conservatory roof would leave you open to overlooking neighbours, as the flat roof surrounding the lantern roof will provide privacy to your conservatory. They’re also the perfect choice for homeowners who wish to let in the sunlight, as they can be uniquely tailored in size, colour and design to achieve your desired effect.

Our lantern roofs have incredible thermal capabilities which means your room will be kept at a comfortable temperature. This enables the cold air out during the hotter months but holds on to the warmth during the winter.
The modern design also involves fully insulated under cladding and eaves rail to keep the cold air out. We can include roof vents so that you can control how much air you let flow around the room.

Conservatories can be added to any home of any size, but if you want to enhance the way you live and make it more saleable, these are an estate agents ten top tips:
Make sure you have a big enough garden to accommodate a conservatory. Buyers can be put off by a home with a conservatory that takes up most of the garden space so don’t build one that eats up your entire garden.
It MUST be heated so that you can use it as a second reception room or children’s play room, for instance, throughout the year. Under-floor heating is a good way to heat a new conservatory.
If you can incorporate bi-folding doors into your conservatory, garden room or orangery that is also a massive benefit. They really give your home the wow factor on a summer day by bringing the garden in. When I have done a viewing of a house with a conservatory that has bi-folding doors opened I haven’t seen one buyer yet that doesn’t say “Wow!”
To add proper value a conservatory would need to be 4m by 4m or more but smaller ones can still get the Wow! factor if properly thought out.
When you are buying a conservatory always go for quality and something that suits the style and character of your property and get the best advice on what to choose.
Solar glass is a great advantage to keep you cooler in summer and retain the heat during winter, but try to avoid ceiling fans – very 1990s.
Make sure you have enough opening windows, so be very careful about how it is going to be ventilated.
Try to choose a solid wood floor or a tiled floor. If you choose carpet you are always going to be worried about getting marks on it from the garden and so is a buyer. If the conservatory is big enough and you have to have carpet you could lay down coconut matting where people can wipe their feet first.
Kitchen conservatories are a fantastic idea. The selling points at the moment in the market are massive kitchen-diners. Kitchens in the area with a covered roof and the dining area in the conservatory are very attractive. These are a great selling feature.
Poorly maintained and old 80s conservatories are not good selling points, neither is shoddy quality.
