Your new room is a big investment; with an Ultrasky flat roof lantern, the money you spend will reap a range of rewards that’ll make you glad you chose Ultraframe.
When extending your home, the amount of natural light flooding into the room is extremely important as bright spaces add much more value than dark spaces. The minimalist look of our roof lantern in conjunction with the optimal fixed 25° pitch is perfect for drawing in natural light over a kitchen island or dining table.
Because it’s been thoroughly wind tested, you’ll be able to depend on your conservatory lantern skylight's triple layer storm shield protection and reduced bar frequency to resist harsh weather. The structural integrity of your roof will be underscored by outstanding heat retention thanks to its thermally broken components which eliminate the risk of condensation.
When fitted in a 1000mm x 2000mm configuration, the Ultrasky lantern roof returns a U-value of 1.1. This is why the Ultrasky lantern roof is an enduringly popular choice for homeowners.
Our Ultrasky roof lantern can be customised by adding a manual or automatic roof vent. This will allow you to control the temperature of your flat roof extension with a lantern skylight and filter out warm air that would otherwise convert into condensation.
Depending on your budget and design preferences, your rooflight can be clad in aluminium or uPVC – externally and internally. Whichever material you choose, you won’t need to compromise on performance.

An orangery has a solid flat roof with one or more glazed lantern roofs. Orangeries often feature brick columns although it is the combination of the flat roof and lanterns that is the defining factor.
The cost of an orangery depends on many factors including the ground you are building on, the area you live in, and the spec you choose. To get an idea of how much an orangery costs on your home, contact your local Ultraframe installer.
It is difficult to say whether an orangery is more expensive than a conservatory as there are many options for both an orangery and a conservatory. For instance you may choose an orangery with a small lantern roof, or a conservatory with a solid tiled roof and the price could be very similar. High orangery prices would depend on the type of flat roof, the number and size of the lanterns and the amount of building work needed. High conservatory prices would depend on the amount of building work needed, whether the roof is glazed or solid/tiled and the spec of any glazing.
An orangery will not always require planning permission - it may be exempt under Permitted Development rules. To find out if this would apply for adding an orangery to your home, speak to the planning officer in the building control department of your local council.
In years gone by, orangeries did used to be warmer than conservatories. However, with the latest conservatory roof technology, this is no longer the case and a conservatory can be every bit as warm as an orangery.
Whether an orangery is cheaper than an extension is dependent on many options - there are many options for both an orangery and an extension. Factors that would influence whether an orangery is cheaper than an extension include the base work needed, the builders/installers who carry out the work and the specification of the orangery and extension products used.
Yes an orangery will add value to your home as it will not only add valuable extra living space, but an orangery is also a highly desirable home improvement. The amount of value it will add to your home will depend on a large number of factors such as the area you live in, your existing home, and the style and specification of orangery.
How long an orangery will last depends on many factors such as the quality of the installation and the products used. If your builder or installer is using quality orangery products such as those form Ultraframe, there is no reason why your orangery shouldn't last for many years.
The biggest factor in determining how long an orangery will take to build is the base work. The time to create an orangery base can vary dependent on the ground conditions and whether piled foundations are needed. Once the base is completed, an orangery should be able to be built within just a couple of weeks.
Your local Ultraframe installer can build an orangery for you. To find your nearest Ultraframe orangery builder click here.
There are many orangery options which can be added to an orangery design so that it suits a modern home. These include flat cornices or parapet features externally to give strong, clean lines, as well as bi-fold doors. The colour of an orangery roof can also have a great bearing on whether it suits a modern home - anthracite grey is very popular right now for windows, doors and conservatory roofs and would be the perfect colour choice for a modern orangery.
