Timber Roof Lanterns

High Quality Timber Roof Lanterns – Made & Delivered Nationwide

Timber roof lanterns are one of the most popular choices for roof lanterns, due in part to the strength and appearance of timber as well as the cost. Timber is one of the cheaper hardwoods but still of very high quality. Here at Prestige Roof Lanterns we use the finest handpicked timbers to use in the joinery to manufacture a product to high standards.

Combining stunning design, premium materials and expert craftsmanship our timber roof lanterns look and feel premium, are durable against weathering, UV damage & mould.

Why Choose Us?

We are a well established Hardwood joinery that designs and manufactures premium quality roof lanterns to exact specifications as opposed to supplying off-the-shelf products.

Not only are we established but our product quality is exceptional thanks to the combination of premium materials & expert craftsmanship.

We offer competitive pricing on wooden roof lanterns & supply to B2C, B2B and Trade.

The product range we offer is diverse including Hardwood Orangeries, Hardwood Roof Lanterns, Conservatories, Windows, Doors, Bifold Doors and other hardwood products.

Our timbers are FSC sourced from healthy trees. The woods chosen are treated to ensure a long lifespan and to inhibit the growth of mould / rot, funghi and moss. Once the timber has been treated, it is generally painted in premium farrow and ball micro porous paints which allow the wood to breathe.

Our timber lanterns and timber rooflights are constructed using precision CNC machining and skilled craftsmen to assemble / tend to the product during manufacture. Each lantern is unique, styled and built to an exact specification for straightforward no hassle installation. Our timber roof lanterns effectively clip together and can be assembled quickly and easily thanks to the way they are designed.

Our timber lantern roof is supplied with all the cappings which can be painted / powder coated to any RAL Colour / BS Colour. Our colour matching service can help keep your lantern in style with existing property structure.

Rafter sections are from 44mm & Hips from 56mm to minimise architecture size for glass panels.

In our joinery, our machinery manufactures with absolute precision and as each piece of wood is carved to the exact MM, it is then transferred onto following stages where the timber roof lantern begins to take shape. Once the expert craftsmen have finished with the lantern it is transferred to our own inhouse paint shop where high quality paints are used to finish the product.

The finials on our lanterns are generally manufactured in aluminium. We use an aluminium capping system which provides weatherproofing and uses a twin gasket system. The glass units used in our timber roof lanterns are argon filled and can come in single, double or triple glazed units (typically 28mm).

The timber rafters are generally 44mm wide, and the hips are 56mm wide. All the centre bosses on the lanterns are hand crafted which brings a traditional centre piece to every hip section. We use a mixture of plastic clips and timber dovetail systems to allow for easy assembly and installation of the timber lanterns.

Lanterns can be supplied with fixed frames or without a frame (will allow for direct fitting to a kerb / cill).

Colours & Wood Stains for Timber Roof Lanterns

Browse our range of wood stains and opaque colours for timber lantern systems.  We can colour match to RAL / BS and use microporous paint which allows the wood to breathe. Two-tone colour options are available for exterior and interior styling.
