A louvered roof pergola has horizontal slats or louvers which can be adjusted/angled to let in more or less light, making it the ideal shading solution for those who want the flexibility of soaking up the sun but also being able to take cover when it gets too warm (or cold or wet).
Not only do louvered roofs offer complete protection from all types of weather, but they also add style and sophistication to your home and can be customised with a number of features to create the perfect indoor/outdoor living space – all year round.
Elevate your garden design
Suited to both classic and contemporary garden designs of all sizes, a louvered roof pergola is a simple yet effective way to give the impression of an outdoor ‘room’, extending the use and functionality of any outdoor space.
Whether it’s in the form of a freestanding structure or adjacent to the house as a direct extension of the property, a pergola will instantly add a strong and striking architectural element to your garden, effectively creating height and a ‘frame’ around a particular view.
Modern bioclimatic pergolas with rotating or retracting louvers allow users to play with light and shade, offering an open-air alfresco feel when left fully open and a secure, weatherproof space when fully closed.
As we transition into autumn and winter, more temporary covers such as brollies, parasols and marquees won’t stand up to the unpredictable British weather, however, a louvered roof will offer protection from torrential rain, gale force winds and even snow.
Whilst high-quality, premium pergolas are designed to stand up to adverse weather conditions, the addition of windproof zip screens combined with accessories such as ambient LED lighting and zone-controlled infra-red heating will create a cosy and pleasant environment, allowing you to utilise your indoor/outdoor living space 365 days a year.
If you opt for a smart hub, you can open and close your louvered roof pergola in real-time from your smartphone (or set a timer to do it automatically), turn the lighting/heating on and off and even view the exact position of your pergola from anywhere in the world – as long as you have a Wi-Fi connection.
Our Managing Director, Stuart Dantzic, said: “Many of us view our home and garden as two separate spaces, however, linking the two together with a shading system such as a pergola can successfully create the perfect indoor/outdoor living area and even make your home look and feel bigger. The garden should be considered an additional ‘room’ which can be used for whatever you enjoy doing, whether that be lounging, entertaining guests or even cooking.”
