The average time to install a louvered roof, also called a bioclimatic roof, is one or two days. This is largely dependent on the size of the roof and if you are adding side glazing. Side glazing will add another day to the installation time to ensure a good finish.
The cost of construction depends on if your louvered roof is attached to your property or freestanding. We also have a number of options that could affect the cost.
