Roof lanterns are a glass roof with elevated side frames which usually sit on top of a flat roof and add an imposing grandeur to any property. Sometimes referred to as skylights or roof lights, glass roof lanterns tend to come in two tiers with a row of small windows below the actual roofline which add height and drama to their overall appearance.

Learn more about Roof Lanterns

Because a lantern roof will flood your room with natural light and make it a delightful space to enjoy, they are perfectly suited to orangeries and garage conversions whether they are being used as an office, dining room, play area or extra living space.

Contemporary in design and very energy efficient, lantern roof lights often include vents for improved temperature control. By utilising glass instead of polycarbonate, they bring in much more natural light than traditional vertical windows - meaning you'll benefit from increased light levels and an uninterrupted view of the sky.

Contemporary roof lanterns from EYG will also add head height to your room to give it a more imposing look and feel. By keeping the frame profiles slim and unobtrusive, our skylights are designed to have a sleek appearance and let in the most amount of light possible.

How thermally efficient are lantern roof lights?

Even though our roof lights are made mainly from glass they are still very thermally efficient and boast a low U-value because they have A-rated glass fitted as standard. This means your home will benefit from regulated temperatures every day of the year.

What roof skylight colours are available?

Whilst aluminium roof lanterns offer a modern look, we are also able to offer a selection of RAL colours to provide an attractive finish. The main colours we provide are white, anthracite grey, oak, rosewood, oak effect on white and rosewood effect on white. However, other colours are available on request depending on your requirements. It is also possible to have the internal frames finished in a different colour to the exterior, allowing your roof lantern to blend seamlessly into your home's style.

Will I need planning permission?

Most roof lanterns do not usually require planning permission.

According to guidance issued by the Department of Communities and Local Government (DCLG) in September 2010, a conservatory or orangery must have a significant proportion of translucent walls and roof – although a minimum or maximum percentage is not stated.

When adding a roof lantern, Building Regulations approval is NOT needed if your project is:

  • At ground level - and be less than 30m2 in floor area.
  • Thermally separated from main dwelling - by walls, windows or doors
  • Unattached to dwelling’s main heating system.

If work is carried out that significantly reduces the proportion of glazing or translucence, the project is no longer considered exempt - and the whole structure WILL require approval from the local authority.

If planning is required, we can remove the hassle by securing permission on your behalf – making sure your project is 100% compliant.
