A clever update to the classic louvred/pergola roof, bioclimatic roofs make changing shade and ventilation levels easy. Bioclimatic roofs come with rotating louvers that are adjustable. Making them perfect for use all through the year. On the remote there are four preset louver positions but the louvers can be changed between the different levels. The Outdoor Living Group's bioclimatic louvred roofs are customisable. What this means is, lighting, side shades, heating and sliding glass panels can be incorporated as a later time to transform the roof to a closed room that can be enjoyed at any time of the year. 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. We design our roofs to have no leaks, exposed gutters or gaps for light. With full control over the blades of the louvered roof, you can control the amount of sunlight that gets into your outdoor space at any time. With that you can control the microclimate of your outdoor space, perfect for gardens. Across Rye, our louvered roofs are completely flexible in design and can be adaptable to fit whatever needs you have.
We can add side glazing to the louvered roof, this can create a space that is weatherproof and can be used in any weather. We have some optional extras available to add to your outdoor space to make it more unique and comfortable. Some are LED lighting, electric heating and outdoor blinds. To reduce the sound of the rain on the roof and also to help maintain the heat during the winter months, internal blade insulation can be added within the louvers.
Our bioclimatic pergolas are designed and constructed to maneuver the louvers in the roof to rotate from 0 to 135 degrees quickly and efficiently to aerate 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. The amount of protection you desire from our louvered roofs is completely up to you. You can vary the amount of sunlight coming in or even shut out the weather completely no matter the season. 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.
Installing a louvered roof, which is also called a bioclimatic roof can take between 1-2 days depending on the size of the roof. If side glazing to insulate the roof is added, this can extend the time of installation to an extra day to make sure the job is perfect.
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 and added features can be added to your louvered roof over time. This can help spread out the cost of the roof.
