Warm in the Winter and Cool in the Summer
Our lantern roofs have the best thermal performance of any in the industry, they incorporate high performance rafters to keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer. This will help keep your heating and air conditioning bills lower, the roof can also be triple glazed giving a U value of 0.7 W/m2K which ensures that you can use your space all year round. Most Lantern roofs do not have the low internal and external sight lines that come as standard with our roofs or external rafter caps that are smaller and less intrusive than the T bar style rafter caps. Our roofs can be all Aluminium or utilise a PVCu capping if preferred.
