We can add side glazing to the louvered roof, this can create a space that is weatherproof and can be used in any weather.

Adding internal blade insulation to the louvers can help to maintain the temperature of your outdoor space during cold months. It can also reduce the sound of the rain hitting the roof.

Our louvered roofs can be constructed to be freestanding and they can be deployed in any part of your outdoor space giving you the freedom to enjoy any part of it.

Almost all properties in the UK have permitted development rights so installing a louvered roof is okay.
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.
