“The time to repair the roof is when the sun is shining,” so the saying goes. So if some warm weather is making your conservatory uninhabitable, think about replacing its roof with a flat one and adding a roof lantern instead.

Some conservatories can be too hot or cold, which limits homeowners’ enjoyment of them.

But as long as the footing/foundation and the conservatory structure itself is sound, the existing roof can be replaced with a flat one suitable for all climates, and you don’t need to sacrifice on light.

High-Tech Membrane roofing, based in Benfleet, Essex, can install a skylight as part of a roof replacement.

Skylights are a great way to bring in light to your home.

If you are restricted by the size of windows you can use, skylights are a great alternative, especially if you have concerns over privacy.

Pitched skylights, also known as roof lanterns, benefit from slim frame profiles and high durability when made from aluminium. They also have an on-trend industrial look that can be found in luxury homes and high-end businesses across the capital. Roof lanterns can add height and volume to to the smallest of spaces.

These skylights require very little maintenance once installed. The predictable British weather should handle cleaning the exterior via rainfall alone, but the inside just needs a quick wipe every so often to make sure you’re any grime or dirt is not blocking out the sun.
