If you’ve just added an extension onto your home, or if you’re considering building an extension to increase your home’s overall footprint, you might be wondering how to add natural light into your new space. […]
At Prestige Roof Lanterns UK, we have several types of roof windows on offer. From traditional flat roof windows, to roof lantern windows, to modern loft windows, we truly do have something for everyone and every home.
Nonetheless, all of our products have one thing in common: they’re made from high-quality, durable materials like timber and oak hardwood. While some people might think cheap roof windows are a more cost-effective option, they’re wrong! Roof windows manufactured from PVC or pine might cost less initially, but they won’t last. Wooden roof windows, on the other hand, are strong and dependable.
At Prestige Roof Lanterns UK, we know that function – while incredibly important – is just one aspect of choosing a roof window. Design plays a big role, too! That’s why all of our roof products are completely customisable. Whether you want to design a bespoke round roof window to compliment the aesthetic of your period property or make a modern loft appear larger with skylight windows, we can help.
Benefits of Roof Windows
Roof windows, skylight windows and roof lanterns are a great way of allowing natural light into your home. This natural light will help you save money on electric bills in the spring and summer. With energy efficient flat roof windows, you could also save on heating bills in the winter as they’ll keep the warm air in, and the cold air out. When you consider these practical benefits and the fact that wooden roof windows add a touch of luxury to your home, it’s easy to see how they can add value to your property.
All of our roof windows, roof lanterns and skylights are incredibly durable and weatherproof. This holds true across all our products. No matter which material, shape, size or style you opt for, you can be sure you’re receiving a fully-functional, high-quality finished product.
A Roof Window For Every Home
Whether you have a flat roof or a pitched roof, a modern home or a period property, a roof window can transform a space. Struggling with a tight or difficult space or with a non-standard size or shape? Don’t worry! We can design and manufacture completely bespoke rooflights and have them fitted where you wouldn’t think possible.
Our manufacturers use modern machinery and attend to projects with a meticulous attention to detail in order to always deliver premium products. This is especially appealing for historic buildings, listed properties, and conservation buildings.

While our skylights are similiar to our roof lanterns in terms of the materials used, they’re different in terms of size. Roof lanterns tend to be much larger than skylights and are ideal for spaces with a lot of available natural light.
We manufacture our roof lanterns to all standard sizing, as well as bespoke options. All of our roof lanterns are made from high-quality FSC sourced wood.
Below are just a few styles of roof lanterns we have available.
- Flat roof lantern
- Domed roof lantern
- Curved roof lantern
- Roof lanterns for orangeries
- Many more!
Walk on Flat Roof Lanterns and Skylights
Essentially, walk on flat roof lanterns and skylights are the same as standard roof lanterns and skylights. The difference? They sit flush with the roof, allowing maximum light entry into the property. Walk on flat glass rooflights and skylights are an especially great options for modern properties and modern conservatories.
Loft windows are a popular option for loft conversions and are an effective way of letting natural light into the property.
Centre Pivot Roof Windows
A popular design, centre pivot roof windows are rotated at the centre, through 180°. They are the basic roof windows for a loft conversion.
Top Hung Roof Windows
Top hung roof windows are also known as means of escape windows (MOE windows). According to the Planning Portal (an online building regulations website), means of escape roof windows require a clear openable area of no less than 0.33m.
Side Hung Roof Windows
Side hung roof windows, hung from either the left or the right, are also means of escape windows. They are, again, a popular option for loft conversions.
Conservation Roof Windows
A favourite of the National Trust and English Heritage, conservation roof windows are designed specifically for old and listed and historic buildings.
