What is a louvered roof?
A louvered roof is a type of shading system for outdoor living spaces made of adjustable slats or panels that can be angled to control the amount of sunlight, shade, and ventilation. The features of louvered roof systems available offer flexibility and climate control that you just can’t get in a retractable awning or pergola.
Flexibility in Sunlight Control
Known in Europe as “Bioclimatic Pergolas”, louvered roof systems are attractive, stylish, modern outdoor pergolas with rotating louvers that can spin a full 180 degrees. This allows you to create the perfect ambiance for your outdoor living space and enjoy it throughout the day, regardless of the changing sunlight angles.
Unlike traditional pergolas or other shade products that may provide limited protection against rain, a louvered roof can be fully closed to create a watertight seal. This means a louvered roof can protect you against falling snow and rain, or it can open up to let the sun shine in. This means you can continue to use your outdoor living space even during light rain or showers, providing you with more usability and comfort compared to other shade products.
A louvered roof system allows you to control the amount of ventilation in your outdoor living space. By adjusting the slats or panels, you can create a breeze or block out wind, depending on your preference. In addition, Window Works is able to accommodate the installation of a ceiling fan and a misting system, thereby increasing the comfort and livability of the outdoor space you’ve created under your louvered roof.
