Smart roofing systems for decks and patios offer the flexibility to open and close, providing complete protection from both rain and sunlight.
The louvers of the patio cover can be easily adjusted, allowing you to switch between an open or closed roof as per your preference. With the ability to tilt from 0º to 130º, these louvers function like a built-in roof, allowing you to customize the shade and light levels at any time of the day. This also enhances your outdoor experience under the patio cover throughout the entire year.
The adjustable louvered roof system allows it to be split into two independently controlled sections. This is especially useful during a barbecue, as you can keep the louvers over the grill open for smoke ventilation, while guests enjoy sitting under the closed section with a comfortable blend of air and shade.
You have the option to manually adjust the angle of the roof louvers or use a convenient remote control for the same purpose. Additionally, the louvers are crafted from high-quality recyclable aluminum which makes them environmentally friendly or a “green” roofing solution. These aluminum roofs boast minimal maintenance requirements and can be easily cleaned with just soap and water.
Your louvered roof pergola offers several primary modes:
Solid Roof: In this mode, the louvered roof is fully closed. It has the appearance and protection of a solid roof. This configuration is ideal to protect your furniture from various elements such as snow, rain, humidity, heavy winds, and dust storms. This will also help prevent the tracking of mud inside your home while protecting your children’s toys, your pets, TV and outdoor kitchen or barbecue.
Slightly Open: With this mode, the louvers would be open to about 10%, so you should receive 100% shade and ventilation. In the summer season, we recommend that you use this mode to get the feeling of being in the shade under a tree or have a chimney-like effect. This configuration would help prevent a greenhouse effect and provide shade regardless of the sun’s position. It will also eliminate the need for ceiling fans if you want a fresh breeze.
Almost No Pergola: This setting is suitable for cold sunny winter days. The louvers would be fully open towards the sun, giving you up to 98% of natural heat and sunlight. Since traditional pergolas don’t adjust, you would receive shade in both summer and winter months leading to a chilly patio even when warmth is desired, this eco-friendly design maximizes natural warmth and light to enhance brightness and warmth to your home just like you would want to get in your French doors or large windows on those cold winter months.
