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. They are either attached to the main building or freestanding structures. 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.

You don’t want to have a louvered roof that looks awkward. What you want is a louvered roof that extends naturally out of the building and over your garden or patio. The Outdoor Living Group’s catalogue of louvered roofs is quite extensive. We have design experts who have had many years of experience in designing pergolas to match our customer’s needs. If you come up with an idea for the louvered roof of your outdoor space, we can come up with ideas on how to make it come to life and we have the experience to construct and install it.
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. There are four preset positions on the remotes that allows you to adjust the position of the Louvres. If you'd like an enclosed room that can be used all year round, it can be achieved by attaching side shades, heating, sliding glass panels and lighting to the Outdoor Living Group's bioclimatic louvred roofs. In addition, our louvered roofs can be constructed as a freestanding units or fixed to a wall based on your specifications. Shaded outdoor back area or garden? Our louvered roofs can be built to meet whatever requirements you desire.
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. Controlling the louvered blades gives you control over the amount of sunlight that filters into your space. Regulating this gives you complete control over the climate of your outdoor space at the touch of a button. Across Edgware, our louvered roofs are completely flexible in design and can be adaptable to fit whatever needs you have.
Adding side glazing to the louvered roof creates an enclosed outdoor space. This enclosed outdoor space can now be used no matter the weather. We have a number of optional extras you can add to your outdoor space, including electric heating, outdoor blinds and LED lighting. 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.
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. 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. What is amazing with our louvered roofs is that you can decide the amount of protection you want. You can either shut out the elements at any time, no matter the weather, or enjoy the sunlight well into the evening. Do you need planning permission for a louvered roof? No, generally most houses in the UK will have permitted development rights, this means you can install a louvered roof if you want to.
It could take 1-2 days to install a louvered roof. The time taken is largely dependent on the size of the roof. If side glazing is a feature to be added to the roof, this could add another day to the installation time to make sure it’s done right.
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. The cost of the roof can be spread out over a long period of time if extras and optional features are added gradually. Working like that helps handle a daunting scale on a limited budget. Please contact us to consult on a design and plan that works for your budget and your property needs.
