An extension like no other

Roof Lanterns or ‘Lantern Roofs’ provide homeowners with a truly multi-functional home extension. The unique design of a roof lantern combines the glass roof of a conservatory with the structured support and strength of a solid extension. Providing the looks and feel of a traditional orangery, roof lanterns have grown in popularity because they offer a more affordable option. Featuring a classic-styled roof and a strong, durable framework constructed from modern, energy efficient materials; lantern roofs also feature plastered walls that help it provide unrivalled security and insulation.

UPVC or Aluminium lantern roofs – the choice is yours…

UPVC

Choosing UPVC is the easy choice for many homeowners and their lantern roofs due to it being affordable, low maintenance and long lasting.  UPVC frames are also thermal efficient and provide a good level of noise reduction. The negative for many people is that UPVC roof lanterns often don’t provide the aesthetically pleasing addition that people are looking for, however recent developments in the industry such as woodgrain finishes, mean that homeowner can get the best of both worlds with their new roof.

Aluminium

There are few limits to the designs that can be created with an aluminium roof lantern, so your ideas for a breathtaking extension can usually become a reality. Powder coated aluminium is unlikely to ever fade, plus can come in almost any colour. Aluminium is, in our view, the ultimate building material – lightweight and yet strong and incredibly durable – so creating your roof from aluminium is an investment that will last for many years to come, plus aluminium is also an ideal building material if your extension is going to be particularly large or exposed to severe weather conditions. Aluminium’s properties enable it to be extruded with fine detail, so traditional features can be built into the design of any aluminium roof.

Opening up your new extension…

Every home is different. Every homeowner is different. This is why we offer so many options to our customers and this includes the types of doors.  Extension doors can come in the form or Patio Doors, French Doors or Bi-Folding Doors. All 3 come in various styles, colours and finishes, but also with their own features and benefits which are outlined below.

French Doors

Double opening French doors turn a simple doorway into a grand entrance and the expanse of double glazed or triple glazed glass lets in floods of light and creates a feeling of spaciousness, even when closed. French Doors from Joedan are available in a variety of different coloured finishes from a traditional white to a more contemporary green or grey, so you can really make your home in the Cotswolds stand out from the crowd.

A quality lantern extension requires a quality roof…

Any lantern roof should be glazed appropriately to ensure a comfortable living environment all year round. Lantern roofs can be fitted with a variety of technically advanced glazing materials, each with specific light and heat control benefits, affected by factors such as geographical location, cost, energy conservation and aspect.

Classic Roof

A classic roof provides the biggest glass area as possible, allowing for maximum amount of natural light into an orangery. The design means that the roof can be applied to orangeries of any shape and size.  The Classic Roof can be glazed with polycarbonate though the most homeowners are opting for a glass roof these days

Cornice Roof

This is an addition to a classic roof with use of an external cornice which is purely about adding more traditional features. The cornice is a great finishing touch to many orangeries, creating a more complete’building and giving a more traditional look and feel. The cornice is available in a range of colours to match the orangery roof and the original building

Lantern Roof

Also known as Atrium Roofs, Lantern Roofs are a clear evolution and descendent of the buildings first created centuries ago, giving any Orangery a much more traditional look. But while their appearance may have changed gradually, the technology and innovation that goes into their production has advanced rapidly and, in that sense, they are barely recognisable from their predecessors. The roof itself sits atop of the building and does not quite span to outer perimeters of the orangery, therefore providing unique views and snapshots of the skies above.

Every colour under the Sun…

Although white has been the accepted colour choice for orangeries for a long time, Joedan has many more options than that in both the UPVC and Aluminium ranges.

The aluminium range now comes in 21 stylish colours, whilst with UPVC, woodgrain finishes are becoming more and more popular and come in 9 different colour options.

Energy Efficiency

An important consideration when deciding to improve your home with a new roof is around the product’s energy efficiency. Poor quality products and shoddy workmanship can mean that valuable heat is lost. During the winter, this  could make your orangery a less enjoyable place to be, as well as bringing up your heating bills. By installing our energy rated windows as part of your roof extension, your home home will be more environmentally friendly and a more affordable place to live.

Security

When considering the functionality of your new extension, security is obviously an important factor. We understand this consideration which is why we have invested heavily in developing the latest technology and manufacturing market leading products. This means that customers of Joedan Windows can purchase their roof with confidence that the investment made will keep unwanted visitors out and their family safe.

Noise Reduction

When adding an extension to a property, consideration has to be made for how well it keeps noise from the outside world out. For countryside properties, this may be less of an issue, however in built up areas, the sounds of busy life want to be kept out, and we have developed top quality products to achieve this.  Whatever your needs and preferences, we have the right product for you and your property.
