Roof Lantern - Built without compromise

Roof Lantern

Roof Lanterns and skylights are becoming increasingly popular in Northern Ireland, and are suitable for a wide variety of building projects. 

With two main types of rooflight on offer, we can tailor the design for your particular building.

Roof lanterns (or sky lanterns) are structures made up of separate panes of glazing set within a frame as facets, capturing more light than traditional windows as they are angled to catch the sun’s rays.
This helps more natural light flow into your home and makes a room feel more spacious by opening up the ceiling and adding height.

Roof lights (or skylights) are usually flush with the roof or built on a plinth and give a more uniform look, especially when installing multiple lights. 

Both options are mainly glass structures built into a flat roof and have several benefits: 

  •  Installing a roof lantern can increase the value of your property by making it more attractive to potential buyers.
  • Eco-friendly – Roof lanterns can help reduce your energy bills and regulate the temperature in your home by letting in natural light and heat during the day. 
  • Corrosion resistant and flame retardant – added layer of security
  •  If you spend a lot of time indoors, a rooflight allows a healthy exposure to natural light and helps boost your mood and health. 
  •  And if you love the great outdoors, our skylights provide a beautiful view of the sky, especially at night.

High Performance 

Aluminium roof lanterns from Budget Designer HomeWorks boast thermally broken frames with a polyimide core. Profiles can be reduced to a slimmer size due to the inherent strength of aluminium, allowing a much larger glass to frame ratio.

A dual layer, powder-coated finish is available in multiple colour options and protects the framework from the harsh weather in Northern Ireland, whilst providing optimal thermal performance. 

Aluminium rooflights allow a sleek and contemporary feel to any building project, and are also approved by local planning departments for use in listed buildings and conservation areas. 

Especially suitable for flat roof extensions and orangeries, our roof lanterns are available in custom sizes and colours suitable for both modern and traditional building projects.

Solar control and self cleaning glass are just some of the options available from our glazing ranges, allowing custom beneficial features to be incorporated into your new roof light. 

And with the diversity of buildings and projects, our experienced team is on hand to design the perfect custom roof lights for your property.

Efficiency Guide


All windows and doors are energy A rated as per the Energy Ratings labels. Our energy rated products help to contain and conserve heat within your home and also reduce your ‘carbon footprint’ by keeping out wind and rain and yet allowing natural ‘free’ energy to heat your home.

With carbon emissions high on the global agenda and the current high cost of fuel, we are all looking for ways to make our homes more energy efficient. You can save money on your energy bills and help to reduce emissions by installing energy efficient windows and doors.

The BFRC ratings scheme is the UK’s national system for rating the energy efficiency of windows and doors and is recognised within the building regulations as a method to show compliance for your installations.

Its rating scheme for energy efficient windows is a system that uses EU authorised energy labels, (specifically produced for windows and doors) that are similar to the energy labels seen on most household appliances.

All of Budget Designer HomeWorks range of doors and windows conform to British standards and windows and doors are all energy A rated. As well as this all our products incorporate maximum security iron mongery.
