Louvered pergolas for restaurants
Louvered roof systems have been quite the rage within this last year. Perhaps, its successes are due, mostly in part to the COVID-19 restrictions. Thus creating a need for restaurants throughout the United States, to look elsewhere for alternative eating spaces since everyone must space at least 6 feet apart from one another.
Without question, the louvered roof pergola system has benefits that are immeasurable when it comes to restaurants sustaining business operations or calling it quits. Surely, one can argue that without an adjustable patio, dining in freezing, rainy, snowy, or cold climates will reduce occupancy and thus reduce a restaurant's profitability.
On the other hand, not having the means to encapsulate your guests while dining is a surefire way to cut your profits significantly. Of course, all restaurants have the ability to maintain take-out and delivery. Still, there are some who'd rather brave the elements and dine undercover, with a heater at their favorite eatery... and a louvered roof allows this to happen.
A commercial louvered roof pergola costs somewhat differently than a residential unit. Typically, this type of roof system is installed fully loaded with all the trimmings. They usually average about $180 per square foot closer to the Struxure pergola price.

Lattice pergolas and covers are a system where the roof system cannot be opened nor is it solid. Rather, the cover top is made up of shade strips typically less than 3" x 3' laid perpendicular to the framework. Lattice shade systems allow for just enough sunlight to pass through the structure to be comfortable.
Typically, lattice covers are favored by those who wish to maintain a certain amount of sunshine. Perhaps you have a kitchen or family room which would otherwise be darkened by a fully covered patio. Alumawood produces a phenomenal lattice cover system designed to last a lifetime. In fact, the warranty by Amerimax is second to none. Every Alumawood patio cover comes with a limited lifetime full warranty.

Solid Roofed CoversUnlike the louvered roof system, solid roofs do not open. When contrasting the lattice system to a solid roofed system it's obvious that both are completely different. Roofed pergola covers can be manufactured with many different materials, not just Alumawood panels.
The possibilities are endless especially when working with wooded covers. Otherwise, the roofing for these types of patios can be made from metal, concrete, clay, or asphalt. Alumawood roofed systems, on the other hand, are made from either foam or aluminum.
The foam roofing is what they call an "insulated panel". These panels are manufactured up to 22' lengths and are a standard, 4 feet wide. Newport systems, on the other hand, have roofing which is considerably different altogether. This particular material is "W" pan shaped panel and possesses no insulating qualities. Either one of these two materials offers a full limited lifetime warranty.
