Why Choose a Softwood Roof Lantern?

A softwood roof lantern is a type of roof lantern made from softwood timber, such as pine, spruce, or fir. Softwood timber is a natural, renewable resource that is relatively inexpensive and easy to work with. It is also a good insulator, which can help to keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer.

Softwood roof lanterns are a popular choice for homeowners who are looking for a cost-effective and environmentally friendly way to add natural light and ventilation to their homes. They are also a good option for homeowners who are looking for a traditional look for their roof lanterns.

In order to get the right fit for your roof lantern, you should also consider the drawbacks of a softwood roof lantern: 

  • Not as durable as hardwood roof lanterns: Softwood timber is not as durable as hardwood timber, and it may require more maintenance over time.
  • Can be prone to warping and splitting: Softwood timber can be prone to warping and splitting if it is not properly treated.
  • Not as strong as hardwood roof lanterns: Softwood timber is not as strong as hardwood timber, and it may not be able to support as much weight.

Overall, softwood roof lanterns are a good option for homeowners who are looking for a cost-effective, environmentally friendly, and traditional way to add natural light and ventilation to their homes. However, it is important to be aware of the drawbacks of softwood timber before you make a decision.
