A grey aluminium roof lantern installed into Sevenoaks new build home.

For this grand new build home in Kent, we supplied and installed uPVC Victorian sliding sash windows and one of our slimline aluminium roof lanterns.

We have already written a case study about the Victorian sliding sash windows in this case study. So, in this article we will focus just on the pyramid slimline roof lantern we installed into the property but also at the roof lantern system in a little bit more detail.

Already dead set on the slimmest possible aluminium roof lantern with an electric opener, this customer knew exactly what they wanted. The aperture was more or less a square, which meant the roof lantern we would create would be in a pyramid shape.

With regard to colour, it was important for the roof to blend in the walls and internals as much as possible, making white the obvious choice. However, externally, the customer wanted to go for something a bit different. Even though the rest of the property was to have white windows and doors installed, we suggested it would be a cool modern touch to have the roof anthracite grey (RAL 7016) externally and white (RAL 9010) internally.

The standard colour options on our Atlas aluminium roof lanterns are white (RAL 9010), black (RAL 9005) and grey (RAL 7016). At additional cost, we can also supply our roofs in any RAL colour. Our RAL colour chart can be downloaded here.

For the glass, we fit all of our roofs with self-cleaning glass as standard. You can read more about how self-cleaning glass works by clicking here. Self-cleaning glass is available in clear, blue or neutral. The most popular option is blue as it enhances the colour of our British skies, closely followed by clear. This roof features our Active blue self-cleaning glass.

After surveying, we were on site to install in around 4 weeks time and got the roof all installed and sealed up over the course of a day.
