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. 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.

Louvered roofs that extend over your property protecting a garden or a porch or patio should look like they were meant to be part of your property. At Outdoor Living Group, we have a wide range of designs for our louvered roofs. We have experts who have years of experience in designing the perfect roof for individual clients.

Bioclimatic roofs are the updated version of standard louvered/pergola roofs. Bioclimatic roof louvers rotate to expel heat during warm summer months and keep in heats when it gets colder. The remote comes with four fixed positions but the louvers can be adjusted to levels in between them. The Outdoor Living Group's louvered roofs can be constructed as a enclosed outdoor space with the addition of side shades, heating, sliding glass panels and lighting. It is also possible to have our pergola installed as free standing units or as an addition to your current property. 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. 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. Our louvered roofs are purpose built to be flexible in their design and be the perfect solution to your outdoor needs in Hitchin.
We can add side glazing to the louvered roof, this can create a space that is weatherproof and can be used in any weather. You can add optional extras to your outdoor space. Extras like electric heating, LED lighting and outdoor blinds. To reduce the sound of the rain on the roof and also to help maintain the heat during the winter months, internal blade insulation can be added within the louvers.
Our bioclimatic pergolas are designed to be able to rotate the louvers from 0 to 135 degrees quickly to easily aerate your garden. Any part of your garden can be enjoyed since we can construct our louvered roofs to stand alone and this can create a large amount of space you can relish and enjoy. Our louvered roofs give you the choice to decide the amount of protection from the elements you desire. You can decide to shut out the weather in any season or let in as much sunlight as you want, well into late in 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.
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 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. Putting a plan in place, we can handle big plans on a small budget. Get across to us and we can work with you on a design that can work with your property and still fit into your finances.
