Louvred roofs are large, open outdoor framed structures that are commonly found in restaurants, garden, large patios, hotels and decks and are also called louvered pergolas. These adjustable shelters are either freestanding, installed to the side of a property, or attached directly to an existing structure. Louvered roofs are built not only to provide shade in the summer and a dry space in the winter, but to also improve the look and feel of an outdoor space.

An innovative take on the standard Pergola roof, bioclimatic roof shade and ventilation can be customised.

The flexibility of our bioclimatic pergola roofs means you can transform your pergola into a closed outdoor space by adding heating, lighting, sliding glass panels and side shades.

We add a number of improvements to our louvered roofs. Our roofs are designed to allow no light gaps or leaks and do so without exposed gutters. You can control the blades of the louver with a touch of a button. This gives you complete control over how much light gets into your outdoor space. This in turn gives you control over the climate of your outdoor space. Across Gravesend, our louvered roofs are completely flexible in design and can be adaptable to fit whatever needs you have.
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. There are a number of extras that are optional but can be included. These are outdoor blinds, electric heaters and LED lighting. The louvered roof can have internal blade insulation added within the louvers, this can help retain heat during the cold months and it also helps to reduce the sound of the rain on the roof by 70%.
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. With our louvered roofs you decide what elements you want let into your outdoor space. You can decide to enjoy the sun till it goes down or you can shut out the weather and enjoy your outdoor space in any season. Is a planning permission necessary to install a louvered roof? The answer is usually no. Most properties in the UK have permitted development rights so installing a louvered roof isn’t 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.
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. This can help us work on larger plans with a limited budget.
