Our experts can enhance the aesthetics of your roof with energy-efficient options
Many homes and commercial properties utilise the space beneath the roof, with some lofts being converted into a bedroom, playroom or office area. In order to create a habitable environment, it is beneficial to have access to plenty of natural light. To achieve this, skylights, roof lights and lanterns are all desirable options.
Our professionals here at Moss End Roofing are experienced in fitting all three in both pitched and flat roofing. Before any work is undertaken, we will send one of our roofers to your property to survey the area, take measurements, and discuss your preferences. There are many benefits to choosing these systems, namely the following:
Most people refer to all forms of roof lights as skylights. They can range from a small unit for domestic homes to a large glazed system that is entirely bespoke for flat roofs. Whatever the type, there is no doubt that they bring something special to your structure. Roof lights on flat roofs are likely to be a glazed unit, while lights on pitched roofs will be fitted ‘out of plan’ on a level with the tiling.
By enlisting the expertise of Moss End Roofing, you will get to choose from a range of different designs and styles. We work closely with multiple manufacturers to ensure that you get the most stylish and energy-efficient options on the market. From frameless and box roof lights to hinged and sliding, there are plenty of variations available.
Rest assured that each one will be fitted with either an upstand or kerb system to act as support and keep it weathertight. Any weatherproofing system can be fixed to the surface installed.

What makes roof lanterns different to skylights and roof lights is the fact that they are much more dramatic in design. They are architecturally beautiful as they maximise the amount of light that can flood into a room. Due to the design of roof lanterns, the light is broken up by the intersections, producing a stunning effect in the room.
They offer solid insulation and ventilation given that they can be opened to bring in fresh air. During the summer months, lanterns provide a way of cooling the room, so you will get to make the most of the light while staying comfortable.
