Louvered roofs also known as Louvered pergolas are outdoor framed structures that rotate allowing the roof to open and close. They are most commonly featured in restaurant, decks, hotels and large patios. Louvered roofs are constructed either as free-standing structures or added on to the side of an existing building over a deck or patio in most situations. Pergolas pull double duty, they enhance an outdoor living space and provide shade on sunny days and protection from rain on not so good days.

The average time to install a louvered roof, also called a bioclimatic roof, is one or two days. This is largely dependent on the size of the roof and if you are adding side glazing. Side glazing will add another day to the installation time to ensure a good finish.
Being attached to the house or freestanding will affect the cost of the louvered roof. Also, the type of options selected for the louvered roof adds to the cost of the roof. Extras added to the roof can be installed in stages. Phased out over time this can help spread the cost of the roof over a longer period. This can help us work on larger plans with a limited budget.
