Our louvered blades can be regulated and this allows you to have full control of the ambient light of your outdoor space. We design our louvered roofs to be flexible enough to adapt to your needs and fit your property in Hertfordshire.
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. You can add optional extras to your outdoor space. Extras like electric heating, LED lighting and outdoor blinds. 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.
We construct our bioclimatic pergolas to rotate the louvers from 0 to 135 degrees easily and quickly in order to provide adequate ventilation to your outdoor space. 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 answer is usually no. Most properties in the UK have permitted development rights so installing a louvered roof isn’t a problem.
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.
Louvered roofs costs vary depending on if it’s attached to the house or freestanding and also which options are to be added to the roof. Extras added to the roof can be installed in stages.
