If you have a conservatory or orangery that you take pride in, you’d be doing yourself a disservice to not invest in a contemporary roof lantern for it. A roof lantern can make your home extension look far more aesthetically pleasing and can also let more natural light in. Roof lanterns tend to be available in a variety of materials but at Renaissance Conservatories, we believe that aluminium is the best choice.

Don’t believe us? Here are 3 reasons you should choose aluminium for your contemporary roof lantern over uPVC or timber.

One of the biggest issues some people have with their home extensions, especially ones consisting of glass primarily like a conservatory, is thermal efficiency. If it’s too cold in the winter and too hot in the summer then it’s no good, but luckily an aluminium lantern roof can help with this!

The specific supplier we use is Stratus and they use thermally broken aluminium that offers an efficient and weatherproof system that keeps your home comfortable and draught free. Make your extension a place that feels just as comfortable as the rest of your home.

Aluminium lantern roof aesthetics

Everyone wants their property to look the very best that it can and choosing an aluminium lantern roof will help you achieve this by drastically improving the aesthetics of your home extension. The robust and premium aluminium will give your home a sleek and architectural touch as well as create a luxurious vibe. You can also pick from two distinct colours, with the options being white and anthracite grey.

You can choose from multiple designs consisting of 3-way design, 2-way design, and a contemporary design that supports the ridge solely by the hip rafters, so you won’t need regular rafters either side, providing a clean and modern look. The combination of all these elements make aluminium the definitive choice for a roof lantern when it comes to aesthetics.

Aluminium lantern roof durability and security

You can feel safest in your home extension with an aluminium lantern roof thanks to the strength and security it boasts. The structural integrity is second to none thanks to the 24mm glazing.

Aluminium is a strong material that can support the weight of the glass easily, leading to a ridge is 66% smaller than other systems which allows for slimmer sightlines. This allows for more light to be let in than uPVC or timber and allows for better views of the sky.

As an added bonus, all Stratus aluminium lantern roofs are time efficient, meaning they’re able to be installed swiftly.
