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 pergolas are either a part of the main property or free-standing structures. Louvred roofs are built to provide shade and rain protection but can also improve the aesthetic appeal of an outdoor space.

Your louvered roofs should look like a purposeful part of your building. It shouldn’t look like an awkward extension of your building. The Outdoor Living Group’s range of louvered roofs is quite vast. Our design experts have spent many years building custom louvered roofs for customers.

A clever update to the classic louvred/pergola roof, bioclimatic roofs make changing shade and ventilation levels easy. Bioclimatic roof louvers rotate to expel heat during warm summer months and keep in heats when it gets colder. With the four preset position on the louver's remote, bioclimatic roofs can be adjusted to various positions. If you'd like an enclosed room that can be used all year round, it can be achieved by attaching side shades, heating, sliding glass panels and lighting to the Outdoor Living Group's bioclimatic louvred roofs. Depending on your requirements, our louvered roofs can be installed as part of your current building or as a lone single standing units. Whatever your requirement might be – a shaded area for your back door, garden or patio, we've got you covered!
We add a number of improvements to our louvered roofs. We have designed our gutters explicitly to remove gutters and eliminate leaks and light gaps. 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. Our louvered roofs are purpose built to be flexible in their design and be the perfect solution to your outdoor needs in Braintree.
When you add side glazing to the roof at any point in the construction, you create an insulated outdoor space that can be enjoyed no matter the weather. There are a number of extras that are optional but can be included. These are outdoor blinds, electric heaters and LED lighting. Internal blade insulation is an option to be added to the louvered roofs. This reduces the sound of the rain on the roof and can maintain the heat in your outdoor space during the winter.
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. Our louvered roofs can be constructed to be freestanding and this makes them uniquely positioned to turn any part of your outdoor space into a haven of freedom that can be enjoyed no matter how isolated it is. What is amazing with our louvered roofs is that you can decide the amount of protection you want. You can either shut out the elements at any time, no matter the weather, or enjoy the sunlight well into the evening. Do you require a planning permission to install a louvered roof? Usually not most properties in the UK already have permitted development rights so installing a louvered roof shouldn’t be a problem.
The size of the louvered roof will determine the amount of time it takes to install. Typically, it takes 1-2 days to install, but if you are adding side glazing, this can extend to an extra day to make sure it is finished to perfection.
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. Additional features to the louvered roof can be added in stages. This can help spread out the cost of the roof. This can help us work on larger plans with a limited budget.
