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. The major function of a pergola is to offer shade. However, it is a feature that can improve the design of a property.
