Bioclimatic roofs are contemporary versions of the traditional pergola/louvered roof. Bioclimatic roof feature adjustable light and shade levels. Bioclomatic pergola roofs are adjustable so you can let in or block out heat and light when you desire. There are four preset positions on the remotes that allows you to adjust the position of the Louvres. The Outdoor Living Group's bioclimatic louvred roofs are customisable. What this means is, lighting, side shades, heating and sliding glass panels can be incorporated as a later time to transform the roof to a closed room that can be enjoyed at any time of the year. It is also possible to have our pergola installed as free standing units or as an addition to your current property. Shaded outdoor back area or garden? Our louvered roofs can be built to meet whatever requirements you desire.
We have a lot of technical innovations built into our louvered roofs. We design our roofs to have no leaks, exposed gutters or gaps for light. Controlling the louvered blades gives you control over the amount of sunlight that filters into your space. Regulating this gives you complete control over the climate of your outdoor space at the touch of a button. We design our louvered roofs to be flexible enough to adapt to your needs and fit your property in March.
Side glazing can be an addition to the louvered roof. This technique will create an weatherproof outdoor space that can be used in any weather. There are a number of extras that are optional but can be included. These are outdoor blinds, electric heaters and LED lighting. The louvered roof can have internal blade insulation added within the louvers, this can help retain heat during the cold months and it also helps to reduce the sound of the rain on the roof by 70%.
Ventilating your outdoor space is important and should be done quickly and efficiently so we build our bioclimatic pergolas to rotate the louvers from 0 to 135 degrees easily. Any part of your garden can be enjoyed since we can construct our louvered roofs to stand alone and this can create a large amount of space you can relish and enjoy. With our louvered roofs you decide what elements you want let into your outdoor space. You can decide to enjoy the sun till it goes down or you can shut out the weather and enjoy your outdoor space in any season. Do you need planning permission for a louvered roof? No, generally most houses in the UK will have permitted development rights, this means you can install a louvered roof if you want to.
Installing a louvered roof, which is also called a bioclimatic roof can take between 1-2 days depending on the size of the roof. If side glazing to insulate the roof is added, this can extend the time of installation to an extra day to make sure the job is perfect.
The cost of the louvered roof will vary with whether it is attached to the house or freestanding. The options selected for the roof will also affect the price of the roof.
