Aluminium Roof Lanterns Reading

Exquisite roof lanterns in Reading, the perfect way to bring an expanse of natural light to your home.

Very often, when homes have an extension or garden room, the traditional roof is flat. You can create a stunning alternative style by having a roof lantern installed. Our roof lanterns are sourced from Ultraframe, ensuring that you achieve the perfect result for your Reading or Thames Valley home.

Our roof lanterns offer your Reading home a range of benefits, including:

Thermal Efficiency

The Stratus aluminium roof lantern is up to 65% more thermally efficient than conventional roof systems, thanks to a thermally broken profile using modern, composite materials.

Sophisticated Design

The roof lanterns we install across Reading and the Thames Valley are manufactured with a 66% smaller ridge, allowing for beautiful aesthetics that create a focal point in the home.

Easy to Install

The Stratus roof lantern is designed so that our installation is incredibly straightforward. This means there is less hassle for you as the homeowner. We’ll be done in no time at all.

Intelligent Detailing

The Stratus roof lantern has been precision engineered down the most intricate details. The 20 degree pitch allows sightlines to be kept to a minimum, while a black finish on the perimeter keeps the internal view minimalist and sleek.

Complete Customisation

Did you know the Stratus roof lantern is available with the option for RAL colour finishes? There are hundreds of options available for you to choose from. You can configure your dream roof lantern with Abbey.

Beautiful Aluminium Lantern Roof Installation in Reading

Here at Abbey Windows, we undertake a variety of double glazing installations.  One of our recent projects was to enhance our customer’s home with a fantastic aluminium lantern roof. Our customer in Reading wanted a new roof that would give them an expanse of natural light, create a unique feature and improve energy efficiency.  We suggested an aluminium lantern roof to meet their needs and went from there.

Efficient Installation

One of the benefits that our customer wasn’t expecting with their aluminium lantern roof installation, was the efficiency of our installation.  There was minimal disruption for their home throughout the project, meaning that they could continue with their daily lives, and not have to worry. Aluminium lantern roofs can be quickly installed in any Reading home.  You might have an extension, conservatory or orangery that needs a refreshed appearance and exceptional performance, which an aluminium lantern roof can provide in no time at all.

Energy Efficiencyenergy efficient roof lanterns reading

When the installation was complete, and our customers had settled back into their normal lifestyle, the energy efficiency of their new lantern roof became apparent.  They told us that their orangery felt warmer, and they were using less heating in that area of their home. This is great news for any Reading homeowner considering this home improvement, as it will help to lower your energy bills.  You’ll need less heating to keep your room warm, as it stays warmer for longer.  The aluminium lantern roof traps heat in your home and blocks cold air out, giving fantastic thermal performance.

Lifestyle Enhancing Roofs!

We asked our Reading client, what is the best feature of having your new aluminium lantern roof?  Their response was surprising!  They said that it had enhanced their lifestyle. They now spend more time in their orangery, as it is a more practical and functional room.  They can relax in there no matter what the weather is doing outside, and appreciate the additional space. The aluminium lantern roof has made their living space much brighter and given it an airy feel.  It has fast become their most used and favourite area of their Reading home!

Quality Finish

Our team of installers are complete experts when it comes to installing aluminium lantern roofs.  This means that your lantern roof is installed in your Reading home to meet the highest standards.  The aluminium lantern roof we installed in our client’s home was praised for having a simply stunning, high quality finish. There were no draughts and no leaks, so they were able to enjoy the space right from the time we left.  As winter approaches, they plan to spend even more time in their orangery where they can get the benefit of their fantastic lantern roof.

Aluminium Roof Lantern Installation in Reading, Thames Valley

We often fit roof lanterns into existing conservatories, new conservatories and extensions throughout Reading. They are an incredibly popular home improvement, to see why, read on for one customer’s experience!

Outdated Extension

Our client had an extension built to provide them with a dining room in their Reading home. It had been in place for a little while, and they were starting to have issues with their flat roof. They came to us to see if we could help, and of course, Abbey Windows were delighted to fix their unsightly flat roof by replacing it with a beautiful lantern roof. The room was a small space, and had only one set of French doors to provide it with natural light, so it seemed quite dark and dingy, certainly not somewhere to relax in!

Efficient Installation

Our installation teams are experts, and they have many years of experience backed up by quality training. They installed the new roof lantern efficiently and with minimal disruption to the family. It was an easy process from start to finish, because we are so focused on delivering unbeatable customer service for every customer. Our installation team ensured that every last detail was perfect, checking that the fit was exact. They stayed on site until the clients were satisfied with their new roof lantern and how it operated.

Client’s Experience

Our clients came back to us a few months later to tell us how much their Reading home had been transformed by their new roof lantern. The dining room was now a hub of activity, flooded with natural light. They told us that it felt bigger, making the space more enjoyable to use. Everyday, their children do their homework at the table and then the whole family gather for dinner, chatting about what they’ve been up to and touching base. It really has completely enhanced their lifestyle.replacement roofs reading

Complete Transformation

It was astounding to see how a simple installation of a roof lantern into a Reading home had completely transformed an underused room. The clients loved their reinvigorated space, and enjoyed using it all through the year, as even in the winter, what natural light there was available would be maximised. The energy efficiency of the roof lantern meant that the dining room stayed warmer for longer, so despite not having a radiator, it was never too cold to use. This was an immense benefit to the whole family. aluminium roof lanterns Reading

Beautiful Aluminium Roof Lantern Installation in Tilehurst

Abbey Windows offers stunning
aluminium roof lanterns here in Reading, providing living extensions with a realm of light and an attractive contemporary feature. We provide high-quality aluminium roof lanterns, which were built to last. These are perfectly adaptable to any style of architecture including rectangular shaped conservatories and orangeries. Mr Bell did not know about lantern roofs until he visited Abbey Windows around the corner from where he lives. His extension did not have an aluminium roof lantern before and he was struggling to read his book due to the dimness in the room, and he wanted to save money on expensive electricity bills. Abbey Windows stepped in to help this gentleman in Tilehurst, Reading, ensuring he gained a lighter room that could generate enough sunlight around the room to switch off the light bulbs.

Innovative Aluminium Roof Lanterns

Utilising the leading technically-advanced aluminium profile for a stronger ridge, our aluminium roof lanterns are thoroughly-secure, and installed to provide a long-lasting roof system. We ensure homes are weatherproof by implementing uPVC roofline systems, which provide exceptional drainage and are thermally-efficient, eliminating cold draughts. Abbey Windows upgrades extensions with its innovative roof lantern solutions, transforming a roof into a solarium. You can begin to envisage the stars at night through the extensive glazed panes that our aluminium roof lanterns have to offer. You’ll also remain warm and cosy with a tough, aluminium frame and energy-efficient glazing that extracts warmth throughout the day, and circulates around your room during the dark, cold evening. Mr Bell now uses his extension night and day for reading and for enjoying the sun without having to put any suntan lotion on. By reducing the time spent with the light switched on during the day, he allows himself enough time to enjoy his book under a lamp during the evening from the comfort of his arm chair. He opted for having blue solar energy-efficient glass installed in a day, which pleased Mr Bell entirely. He sought this option because he wanted to really save money on energy bills, and with the integral thermal technology, he gained exactly that. Almost immediately he started noticing significant savings on his bills, and at the same time thanks to the advanced glass, reduced his carbon footprint. The blue coloured glass fitted in perfectly with his home’s architecture in Tilehurst, ensuring beautiful aesthetics.

Attractive Aluminium Roof Lanterns

Alongside its aluminium framework, the roof lantern achieved a complementing contemporary appearance, a feature that Mr Bell and family enjoyed. They will benefit from these stunning looks for years to come with a highly-durable aluminium profile that promises never to scratch, rust, or fade over time. Take your pick from a wide variety of coloured finishes which are comprised of a high-quality powder coating, which never requires repainting. We offer a wide range of size configurations from small, to large, allowing extensions of all sizes to enjoy an aluminium roof lantern from Abbey Windows. Mr Bell went for a smaller sized roof lantern so that he could position it centrally on his solid roof. From outside, the aesthetics are extraordinary, as the traditional slated rooftop blends in beautifully with the mystical blue solar glass, while the adaptable qualities of its aluminium bars also play a hand in providing perfect aesthetics. He has chosen an external white coating to match uPVC windows and doors, which are virtually indistinguishable from one another. You can opt to have a contrasting colour internally to complement the furniture around your home, or achieve a perfect colour match by opting for the same coloured foil.
