Greater need for light lantern roofs

Lantern roofs provide homes with long-lasting health and well being benefits, by improving natural light and ventilation.

A video released recently by Velux – The Indoor Generation – highlights the greater than ever need for lantern roofs and orangeries.

Long gone are the days you’d see children playing outside for hours on end, kids on push bikes with their friends or adults enjoying the great outdoors.

[blox_video title=”” image=””]https://youtu.be/ygHU0mQGuJU[/blox_video]

Over the last 100 years, properties have become more insulated and darker; and while there is artificial light, nothing can replace the benefits of natural light and sunshine. The indoor generation spends 90% of its time indoors, which is why having access to fresh air and vitamin D from the sun is so essential.

While you may have heard about rising pollution levels on the news, the fact is that the air inside of a home is up to five times more polluted than that outside. The most polluted place in a house is a child’s bedroom, thanks to dust mites, chemicals and mould, etc.

Exposure to such poor air quality can have long-lasting impacts on the population – roof lanterns can help alleviate some of the issues caused by it.

Up to 15% of the indoor generation suffer from things like seasonal affective disorder and mental health issues, increased high blood pressure and a 40% increase in the cases of asthma. Children of the indoor generation have a decreased learning ability of up to 15% and all from spending so much of their lives locked away in their homes and away from the great outdoors.

Lantern Roofs provide much needed extra light, improve air quality and look stunning.

The upturn in lantern roofs and orangeries shows a positive movement for the indoor generation for turning around these numbers.

Everyone from homeowners and hoteliers to restaurateurs and care home managers is having roof lanterns installed on their properties. Unlike the conservatories of old that are freezing in the winter, boiling in the summer, and so loud when it rains that you can’t hear yourselves, technologically advanced glazing solutions like the lantern roof offer loads of natural light without sacrificing thermal efficiency.

Stylish roof solutions with our Global conservatory pelmet

The home improvement landscape is evolving and our Global conservatory pelmet is becoming increasingly popular with our customers.

The conservatory pelmet perfectly complements our range of Global conservatory roof products, which have remained one of the best known systems for over 10 years. Now, with the addition of this stylish variable conservatory pelmet, we can quickly create an attractive internal conservatory or orangery solution.

With the addition of lantern roofs and tiled roofs to the conservatory market, the choices are seemingly endless nowadays for creating purpose designed spaces for our customers. The traditional glazed conservatory has had a makeover, with a range of contemporary style options available, and orangeries are no longer the expensive, extravagant products they once were.

Nowadays conservatories and orangeries can be built without rigmarole and expense. A system like our Global Summer range has all the decorative features of an orangery but doesn’t require the building regulations often needed for full structural orangeries. The Global Summer has very distinct mouldings on its cornices which gives it that more traditional appearance than other systems, and that meets the demand we are seeing from our customers.

The Danger of Conservatory Clad Over Roofs

Clad Over Roofs

Just because a tiled roof looks professional, it doesn’t mean that it is!

The popularity of the conservatory is well and truly on the rise, thanks in no small part to new, lightweight tiled conservatory roofs. The most common reason homeowners want to upgrade their worn-out glass or plastic conservatory roof for a high quality tiled replacement is because of the extreme changes in temperatures during summer and winter.

New sophisticated designs and better materials mean that conservatories are now able to retain warmth in the winter months and keep your conservatory cool on sunny days, meaning homeowners now have a space that is usable all year round.

One such revolutionary design is our SupaLite lightweight tiled roof system. We have seen increasing demand in the tiled roof system in the past 12 months as a quality retro-fit product to replace tired conservatory roofs or a high-performance solution for exciting new-build projects.

But this new-found popularity has come at a cost – the number of clad over roofs is on the rise and proving a problem for both the industry and homeowners.

Create a Truly Modern Living Space by Converting Your Conservatory

It is estimated that there are over 4 million conservatories in the UK. A vast majority of the owners who originally bought them, or inherited them when they moved house during the 1980’s, 90’s and the noughties would probably agree that they get little use out of them – too cold in the winter, too hot in the summer. So how do you go about converting your conservatory so that it can be used more often?

But now there is a way to convert these often unloved and largely unused rooms and create a truly modern all year round living space in your home – say hello to solid roofs.
