Dating from the middle ages, roof lanterns are typically incorporated into a larger roof and funnel natural light into the space or room below. With the growing desire of customers to have open and bright living spaces, roof lanterns are becoming increasingly popular within the UK-market.
Gowercroft supply and install roof lanterns throughout the UK on a wide variety of properties. As standard, we manufacture the lanterns from fine hardwood, with stepped double glazed units and Aluminium cappings to the outer face of the glazing. This gives a superb balance of appearance, weather-tightness and maintenance.
As a bespoke company, our range of designs and finishes is very wide ranging. We can accommodate Aluminium opening vents controlled manually, by a rocker switch or automatically by a climate control system. We offer a wide range of glazing options to control light, provide self-cleaning or to improve energy efficiency. A popular option is to include a cable management system, which conceals wiring and allows a chandelier or light to hang from the boss.
During the installation of the product, we coordinate closely with the other trades – providing detailed drawings of preparation required and integrating an internal window-board for the plasterer to work to. All products are fully factory spray finished with a 10-year guarantee, and are glazed on site to suit the wider schedule.
