The price of custom roof lanterns vary depending on the scale and specifications of the project. It can also vary depending on the type, whether it’s an aluminium flat rooflite or UPVC skypod roof. Generally, they both start around £500 to max £4000. If you are looking for extra features such as different glass types and extra panels, you can add these on at an extra cost.
Installing a glass roof lantern can be very easy and quick if you are aware of all safety requirements and regulations. Before starting, it is important to consider three things: the right measurements, legal permissions and the condition of the existing roof. Here’s how to do it:
Take your tape measure and check the measurement of your roof. While our roof lanterns are easy to install, it can be time-consuming raising everything if inaccurate measures are taken in advance.
Check that you have all the legal permissions. Generally, planning permission is mandatory if the roof is more than 150mm from the existing roof plane. Moreover, any changes cannot be higher than the tallest part of your existing roof. All our roof lanterns are designed with a low profile. However, you should check the UK Government permitted development rights for householders for your local area and check the Planning Portal for further legal guidance.
Generally, the roof is made with some timber materials that sustain its structure. Before starting your project, ensure that you are not making any substantial structural modifications to the roof to avoid a potential roof collapse. Check, in particular, the ridge board, fasteners, purlins, struts, ceiling joists and tiles.
To measure your flat roof, measure the width and length of each plane on the roof, including the dormers. Then multiply the width and length together to give the area of each plane. If you have multiple planes, measure each one separately and then add them together to work out the total area of the flat roof.
All our glass roof lanterns come with guidelines for installation. Here are some of the main steps to installing a roof lantern on a flat roof:
1. Frame the opening
2. Drill a hole in the roof to cut the opening
3. Fit the skylight into place
4. Position the underlay
5. Fit tightly so that water can’t get under the skylight.
Whether you’re building a flat roof for the first time or replacing your existing roof, we recommend contacting one of our experts if you are not a professional builder or for further enquiries.
