Experts in Roof Lanterns Made of Wood

Wood roof lanterns bring a beautiful aesthetic quality that is hard to match with other materials such as UPVC and aluminium. Wood allows for beautiful architectural features that add style and beauty into the design.

Skilled Craftsmen

Our team of skilled craftsmen and designers work closely with each piece of wood, ensuring that its natural grain, colour, and texture are highlighted in the final design. This attention to detail results in roof lanterns that are not only structurally sound but also works of art in their own right.

We mainly design and manufacture roof lanterns from high quality softwood timber and hardwood oak. We can also manufacture roof lanterns using high quality softwoods like pine.

We have honed our skills in working with various types of wood, understanding their unique properties and how best to utilise them in roof lantern construction.

FSC Sourced Materials 

Wood roof lanterns are made using FSC sourced timber / oak and have been selected from premium wood suppliers ensuring that the wood is flawless. The woods used are treated with a number of chemicals and then painted using micro porous sprays which allow the wood to breathe but not to rot.

Professional wood treatment 

Our wood treatment allows the wood to remain healthy and mould / rot free, even over time, requiring only basic maintenance. The wood can be painted in a wide array of colours (exactly to specification with farrow and ball paints) or can be stained with a beautiful range of sapele, bespoke oak roof lantern, or idigbo stains.

Ornamentation Options

You can choose from a range of ornamentation for the top of the lantern as well as ornate features for the rafters and cross bars (either horizontal or vertical). We offer a range of balls, spikes, concave shapes and fleur de lys in a range of sizes to suit proportionally to your lantern. We also provide ornamentation for roof lights, skylights and roof windows

High-Quality Wood Roof Lantern 

We manufacture our lanterns using high quality wood, paints, treatments, glass and fixtures. We use Pilkington activ glass or saint gobain glass which comes with self-clean options, excellent thermal efficiency, twin gaskets for insulation (ventilation properties available).

Hardwood Roof Lanterns 

Our Hardwood Roof Lanterns are a testament to classic craftsmanship and sophisticated design. Constructed from robust hardwoods like oak, these lanterns offer unparalleled durability and a rich, natural aesthetic that matures beautifully over time.

The dense structure of hardwood makes these lanterns exceptionally resistant to wear and environmental factors, ensuring longevity and a lasting impression. Each piece is intricately crafted to highlight the unique grain and character of the wood, resulting in a bespoke architectural feature that enhances both traditional and contemporary settings.

At Prestige Roof Lanterns UK, our hardwood lanterns are not just roof fixtures; they are enduring symbols of quality and elegance, adding value and character to any property they grace.
