Louvred roofs also known as a louvered pergola are adjustable outdoor frames that are common features of hotels, large patios, restaurants and decks. These adjustable shelters are either freestanding, installed to the side of a property, or attached directly to an existing structure. The major function of a pergola is to offer shade. However, it is a feature that can improve the design of a property.

Usually not most properties in the UK already have permitted development rights so installing a louvered roof shouldn’t be a problem.
It could take 1-2 days to install a louvered roof. The time taken is largely dependent on the size of the roof. If side glazing is a feature to be added to the roof, this could add another day to the installation time to make sure it’s done right.
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. The cost of the roof can be spread out over a long period of time if extras and optional features are added gradually. This can help us work on larger plans with a limited budget.
