Flat skylights are a modern roof system available to homeowners here in Whalley, Clitheroe and Lancashire. Best suited to orangeries but also available with house extensions, they are a stylish alternative to traditional glazed roofs. Designed to offer the perfect blend of practicality and visual appeal, they are both thermally efficient and weatherproof in all seasons.
These roof systems are made from stunning frameless glass that is partnered by slimline aluminium. Not only is aluminium a high performance material, but it is sleek and visually appealing in design. Using for our Ultrasky flat skylights allows them to offer unique, contemporary aesthetics. They are available in black, grey or white as standard, with the optional upgrade to any RAL colour.
Flat skylights are most often fitted alongside new build orangeries or extensions. However, they can also be installed to just about flat-roofed area as part of the retrofit service we offer here at Whalley Home Improvements. With this, we often fit these skylights above kitchens or dining rooms, allowing natural light to flood in, transforming a customer’s home.
As with all our conservatory and orangery components, our flat skylights are supplied by Ultraframe UK Ltd. If you’re investing in a new orangery with flat skylights, you want to work with a business you can rely on. You get exactly that with Whalley Home Improvements.
Our flat skylights are famed for their excellent soundproofing properties. Noise reducing glass and a combination of 4mm and 6mm stepped units allow them to reduce acoustic ingress by up to 34dB.
Flat skylights are a fantastically low maintenance product. They require very little upkeep to perform their best, only needing an occasional wipe down to prevent the build up of excess dust or debris.
Click fit frames and the option of a waterproof kerb allow our flat skylights to be easy and hassle free to install. No cutting will ever need to be done on site, ensuring a fast, precision fit every single time.
Aluminium flat skylights do a superb job of retaining heat. These systems can achieve U-values as low as 1.2W/m2K, thanks to Ultraframe’s innovative ‘Warm Frame’ technology that insulates the system.
Flat skylights are smaller than other roof systems and can, therefore, be installed in a couple of days. Of course, having multiple rooflights fitted will add to the installation time, as will the removal of any existing roof system. If you’re having your skylights fitted as part of a full orangery build, you can expect the complete process to take around three months. If you’d like to get a precise idea as to how long your renovations will take, please contact us today.

If you’re having an orangery fitted, you can also choose to have one of our stunning roof lanterns fitted. They are larger roof systems, made with slimline aluminium bars and double glazing that is manufactured at a pitched angle.
Orangeries are a permitted development. With this, they are granted planning permission as standard, on the assumption that the build adheres to the latest regulations for size and location. With this, you can have an orangery fitted with flat skylights without having to actively seek planning permission. Despite this, we always recommend you speak with local building authorities to ensure that you aren’t in a conservation area where rules are different.
