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. Although pergolas are constructed to provide protection from the sun and rain, they can also enhance the appeal of a property.

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.

We have a lot of technical innovations built into our louvered roofs. We have designed our gutters explicitly to remove gutters and eliminate leaks and light gaps. You can regulate the amount of light that gets let into your outdoor space at the touch of a button. Our louvered blades can be regulated and this allows you to have full control of the ambient light of your outdoor space. Our louvered roofs are purpose built to be flexible in their design and be the perfect solution to your outdoor needs in Harlow.
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 optional extras that are available, these include LED lighting, outdoor blinds and electric heating. Adding internal blade insulation to the louvers can help to maintain the temperature of your outdoor space during cold months. It can also reduce the sound of the rain hitting the roof.
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. Even isolated parts of your garden can be enjoyed under the protection of our louvered roofs. We can install our louvered roofs to be free standing and this can make your outdoor space a haven of freedom you can enjoy. The amount of protection you desire from our louvered roofs is completely up to you. You can vary the amount of sunlight coming in or even shut out the weather completely no matter the 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.
Louvered roofs which are also called bioclimatic roofs can be installed in a day or two depending on the size. This can be extended to an extra day if side glazing is added to the installation of the roof to ensure a perfect job.
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. We can work to handle a big project on a limited budget.
