Aluminium Skylights

“Let the sunshine in with our beautiful Aluminium Skylights”

We all love a home filled with natural light, to cheer up the gloomy days and create a happy environment. However, living in the UK means we’re not exactly blessed with year-round sunshine. For many houses in the UK, it means dark, gloomy winters and summers that might be hot but still don’t maximise the available light.

If you have a flat roof, then aluminium skylights are an ideal solution. Not only do they have the same capabilities as roof windows, but they’re also easy to install and work well on flat roofs.

At Prestige Roof Lanterns, we supply a range of aluminium designs as a solution for flat rooflight in partnership with Prestige. We choose them as manufacturers because of their range of sizes and flexibility for bespoke features.

Roof lanterns crafted from premium aluminium

Aluminium lanterns are suitable for almost any flat roof installation. They offer excellent weather resistance and product longevity thanks to the robust nature and properties of Aluminium. Our lanterns can be provided to your exact size specifications. Using thinner rafters our lanterns maximise glass unit size for maximum light entry, rafters start from 44mm.

Our low profile roof lanterns use a timber/hardwood frame with aluminium capping allowing for aluminium durability and the ability to customise the features on the inside of the lantern. Our range also includes contemporary and flat panel lanterns as well as thin roof lanterns which also feature opening vents and a range of glass options including single, double and triple glazing. For most aluminium lanterns, double glazing offers enough insulation. If you are looking for a flat rooflights solution, then this is the answer you were looking for.

Our thin aluminium lantern roof is supplied with all the cappings which can be painted or powder coated to any RAL Colour/BS Colour.

Why choose aluminium skylights?

Skylights offer a host of benefits for homeowners, and they’re an excellent solution if you want to add light to your property. Many of our customers look at skylights because they’re easy to install and easy to maintain.

Here are eight great reasons you should get a skylight installed on your roof.

1. Natural light

Let’s talk about the first benefit we mentioned: natural light.

The introduction of a natural light source can liven up a room. It’s a sure-fire way to increase the amount of light throughout your home. Natural light is also sustainable.

Uneven lighting patterns are common occurrences in some rooms with standard windows. Skylights solve this problem because they introduce light into a specific part of a room, filling an area with natural light that windows can’t reach.

This balancing of the light in a room will provide a new aesthetic to help define your space.

2. Ventilation benefits

It might be on the roof, but skylights can aid in expelling hot air.

Consider adding a manual or remote-controlled vented skylight. These allow fresh air to circulate in your home. This feature can also be utilised in bathrooms to help moisture escape or in a home where the options for standard window installation are severely limited.

Another possible use for ventilation is in the kitchen and the removal of cooking odours. This is a great way to avoid using obnoxious, loud exhaust fans.

3. Energy savings

Natural light means less need for electric lights.

The introduction of a roof skylight replaces lighting elements. Fewer lights mean more savings in electricity.

Various seasonal changes also bring benefits. In the winter, a skylight can provide warmth from the sun. In the summer, the same skylight will provide ventilation benefits by expelling hot air. This can help reduce your heating and air conditioner usage.

4. Skylights fitted to your needs

Skylights come in all sizes and shapes.

In larger sizes, a skylight can make a room feel larger than it is. It brings a sense of the outdoors inside while highlighting architectural details in the home.

If you’re looking for something smaller, consider tubular skylights. They bring natural light into spaces such as interior hallways, closets, bathrooms, or any room that lacks windows.

5. Increase resale value

When it’s time to sell your home, a roof skylight can increase the value.

Like most cosmetic changes, skylights create an attractive atmosphere thanks to natural light. The introduction of this to various rooms throughout your home will increase the resale value based on all the reasons we’ve described.

The new energy-efficient models are also appealing to potential home buyers. This benefit alone might make installing a skylight a good investment if you’re considering selling your home.

6. Solar heating

Skylights can provide a source of solar heat in the winter.

Heating your home with sunlight can be a great alternative to running the furnace. In most cases, you can set your thermostats to a lower temperature because of a skylight’s ability to add additional heat to a room and your home.

7. Health benefits

Natural light is a great way to elevate your mood. This is a valuable health benefit in a home that might be gloomy.

Skylights also help individuals feel more attached to the outdoors. When vented models are open, you’ll experience improved air quality and circulation. Increased light leads to increases in your vitamin B and D levels.

Installing a skylight will also help ward off mould and fungus growth in your home. This not only helps your personal health but the health of your home as well.

Boost your immune system, improve circulation, and improve the quality of your life with natural sunlight.

8. Maintain privacy

Windows are a great addition to any home. However, in some cases, windows compromise your sense of privacy. Skylights are an exception.

You can have natural light and maintain your privacy — even in the most intimate spaces of your home. Don’t sacrifice your need for natural light and functionality because of privacy concerns.

A skylight can provide you with the best of both.
