Mission impossible? Ultra-low profile roof lantern success!

Brooklyn Drive, Caversham, Berkshire

12 December 2018

Many of our clients come to us looking to achieve an architectural glazing installation which from their own research seemed an impossible dream. We love nothing more than working with clients to understand and realise more complex glazing briefs to complement the design vision for their property. With our years of experience within the building and glazing industry, we are yet to be involved in a project that we weren’t able to find an exquisite solution for to meet our client’s vision.

Pitch perfect aluminium roof lanterns

Our client in Caversham, Berkshire knew exactly what they wanted to achieve from their roof lantern installation. The key requirement was that their lantern have an unusual ultra-low profile 25o pitch to achieve the architectural finish they desired, which they had been led to believe was not achievable. It was also important that the glazing company they chose to work with were able to provide end-to-end project management from quote through to installation. We were delighted to be a part of this 7-month renovation project and work in partnership with their onsite team to achieve their vision on time and on budget. 

The Exact Aluminium Roof Lantern, with its slim-line frame profile and sleek internal design, is made to your exact measurements and with an ultra-low 25o pitch, was the perfect solution for this project.

From concept to installation

During their research our client had found limited options to achieve the desired 25o pitch for their lantern, as well as being disappointed by the lack of understanding of their requirements and comprehensive project management available.

Our end-to-end approach sets us apart from other companies; we thrive on being involved in projects from concept to installation, adding our expertise and those finer details to create the dream glazing addition to your home.

Prior to the site survey for the roof lantern, we worked with our client to provide photographs and clear detail on how the preparation work should be completed prior to our site survey, to ensure a smooth installation of the Exact Aluminium Roof Lantern

Achieving our client’s vision

For many home owners, a large-scale renovation project is a once in a lifetime opportunity to create the home of their dreams. We understand how important it is to work closely with our clients, providing clear, jargon-free communication and deliver what we promise, when we promise. We were particularly delighted with this project to specify and install the Exact Aluminium Roof Lantern, as we were able to make the impossible – possible!

Being told we couldn’t achieve the 25o pitch with the aluminium lantern was really disappointing. When we discussed our requirements with Exact and they confirmed they were able to achieve exactly what we were looking for we were thrilled. It was really important to us that the company managed the whole process from beginning to end.

The team at Exact were professional, helpful and made the whole process a really positive experience – which is exactly what you need when you’re managing a project like ours.
