The advantages of having a Lantern Roof

The Advantages of a Lantern Roof

A lantern roof is a type of skylight that is mounted on a raised structure above a flat roof, allowing light to flood the room from above. Here are some advantages of installing a lantern roof:

  1. Increased natural light: One of the most significant advantages of a lantern roof is that it allows natural light to enter the room from above. This can help reduce the need for artificial lighting during the day, which can save on electricity bills.
  2. Improved ventilation: Lantern roofs can be designed to open, allowing for improved ventilation in the room. This can help regulate temperature and reduce the need for air conditioning.
  3. Aesthetic appeal: A lantern roof can add a beautiful and modern touch to a home or building. The raised structure and the glass panels can create a striking visual effect and make the room feel more open and spacious.
  4. Energy efficiency: A well-designed lantern roof can also improve the energy efficiency of a building. The glass panels used in the roof can be specially coated to reduce the amount of heat that enters the room during the summer, while still allowing light to enter.
  5. Increased property value: Installing a lantern roof can increase the overall value of a property. The additional natural light and improved aesthetics can make the home or building more attractive to potential buyers, which can result in a higher resale value.

What can Nextgen Roof Systems provide?

Nextgen is a provider of the Leka Orangery Roof system. A lightweight, tiled Orangery roofing system finished with replica concrete (Metrotile) or slate (TapcoSlate) tiles. These engineered tiles weigh up to seven times less than the real thing and are a perfect imitation.

The orangery kit is designed for homeowners and built for the trade. It’s incredibly lightweight, easy to install and complies with building regulation U-values. There are no aluminium or timber components in the build. The Leka System is built from four simple ladder kits made from GRP (glass reinforced plastic).

It’s the cutting-edge roofing system of choice for many installation companies and homeowners because of this. When only the very best will do, the Leka System delivers.
