Over the last two years, residents of Burlington, Hamilton and surrounding areas have had to spend more time at home than ever. Spending more time at home has made us want to take better advantage of our outdoor spaces, and make them more enjoyable to use.
A trend that we see becoming increasingly more popular is the louvered roof pergola. And here are a few things that we love about it:
This is NOT your average pergola!
When we think about pergolas, many of us still envision wooden, rustic, English-gardeny structures with roses growing up around them. And while these types of pergolas are great if that’s your thing, there is so much more to the modern louvered roof pergola.
Today’s styles are modern, sleek, and elegant. They can transform your outdoor space into a beachy-breezy oasis by the pool or secret getaway to enjoy some romantic el-fresco dining.
It’s all about comfort.
Louvered roofs are the perfect blend of form and function. The design of the roof – while stylish in itself – actually serves a very functional purpose. It provides you with comfort under a variety of weather conditions. Being able to go from partial to full shade and giving full rain protection makes these pergolas a step above your typical wooden structure.
On hot summer days, air circulates through the louvers, creating a natural air conditioning effect. And when the sun is at its brightest or when there is light rain, the louvres can be closed to provide some shade or protection from the elements.
You can make it your own
Our modern louvered roof pergolas aren’t a one size fits all, generic structure either. They are available in a range of styles, colours, and finishes so that you can match it to your existing home and tastes. Depending on what you are looking for, custom options may also be available. Whether it’s built in lighting or wraparound retractable screens we can make your pergola the perfect outdoor oasis
They have tech!
Finally, something that we really love about modern louvered roof pergolas is the technology that has been incorporated into them to make them even more convenient and suited to our busy lives.
Louvres can be opened and closed at the touch of a button – or the tap of a smartphone. LED lighting can also be controlled with the same function or with sensors that let them know when the natural light is starting to fade.
