Micron are Roof lantern suppliers in Kent & Surrey. An alternative to a full conservatory is the ever popular ‘Lantern Roof’. The lantern roof is like a conservatory roof placed onto a solid extension, often but not always over an open space living area such as a kitchen. The lantern roof gives an atrium effect, or something similar to an orangery. It’s biggest benefit is the ability to bring natural light into the room. Other names for lantern roofs include lantern roof windows, skylights, atrium’s, skypods and skylantern.
The favoured material for lantern roofs and atrium’s is Aluminium painted in any colour to suit your property. Aluminium roofs are much better performing than other materials due to their low thermal sensitivity. Timber lantern roofs can twist and warp in the sun – the wooden sections expand when heated and contract again when cooling. Over a few years this constant twisting and warping due to the weather will allow gaps to appear and widen in the timber joins, leading to drafts and even worse water ingress.
Our friendly team will be pleased to help with any questions you may have.
