In fact, a roof lantern addition supplied and installed by My Bifold is just as strong and resilient as a solid roof. This article will explore the benefits of a roof lantern and its exceptional durability and resistance to adverse weather.

The high performance of your roof will be accentuated by outstanding heat retention thanks to its thermally broken components which eliminate the risk of condensation. Our aluminium roof lanterns are 65% more thermally efficient than others on the market and feature an intelligent design that allows them to regulate heat effectively. Our lanterns utilise the vacuum spaced gaps between the 28mm standard double glazed glass of the roof lantern; it traps and retains the natural heat inside your home and prevents heat transfer. This means your home will remain warmer for longer and help you rely less on your central heating. You can save money on your energy bills by using less artificial heating while enjoying a more comfortable home.
