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. They are either attached to the main building or freestanding structures. Louvred roofs are built to provide shade and rain protection but can also improve the aesthetic appeal of an outdoor space.

Bioclimatic roofs are contemporary versions of the traditional pergola/louvered roof. Bioclimatic roof feature adjustable light and shade levels. These louvers can be adjusted to let in more air when it is hot and keep more heat in winter temperatures drop. The remote comes with four fixed positions but the louvers can be adjusted to levels in between them. 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. 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.
Our louvered roofs have a lot of technological improvements built in. Our roofs are designed to allow no light gaps or leaks and do so without exposed gutters. With full control over the blades of the louvered roof, you can control the amount of sunlight that gets into your outdoor space at any time. With that you can control the microclimate of your outdoor space, perfect for gardens. The design of our louvered roofs in totally flexible and can be restructured to find a solution for the needs of your home in Southampton.
We can add side glazing to the louvered roof, this can create a space that is weatherproof and 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 louvers can be fitted with internal blade insulation. This can reduce the sound of rain the louvered roof lets in by up to 70% and it also helps to retain heat during the winter months.
Our bioclimatic pergolas are designed to be able to rotate the louvers from 0 to 135 degrees quickly to easily aerate your garden. 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. 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. Is a planning permission necessary to install a louvered roof? Almost all properties in the UK have permitted development rights so installing a louvered roof is okay.
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. Extras and added features can be added to your louvered roof over time. This can help spread out the cost of the roof. Working like that helps handle a daunting scale on a limited budget.
