What is a louvered roof?
Also known as a patio cover, the louvered roof sun shade patio is a motorized extruded aluminum shade that typically covers the entire backyard patio. These types of patio covers are designed to open closed with the push of a button. Thus providing shade from the hot sun while even protecting your outdoor furniture.
When you think of a louvered patio cover or louvered pergola, one might expect the roof to open and close manually. Not at all. The equinox louvered roof system® for example is adjustable via the use of a motorized system. I suppose the weather is a chief reason why so many choose to own these louvered patio roof structures. And of course why not. When you can have the best of both worlds no matter your local weather calls for sun or rain, it's literally a no-brainer.
Are louvered roofs waterproof?
Louvered roof pergolas are constructed of tough extruded aluminum. The overall design is to allow for years of water-tight reliability when closed, day or night. Adjustable roofs made for a material other than aluminum have a tendency to seep water during the rain. That said, roofs which possess louvers must be constructed of material durable enough to withstand the elements like the extruded aluminum.
The louvered roof produced by equinox louvered roof here in Southern California from our personal experience is extremely waterproof when closed. Therefore if I were to make a general statement concerning whether or not louvered roofs are waterproof I would have to agree and say indeed, they are.
How much is a louvered roof system?Louvered roof pergolas constructed of powder coated, extruded aluminum and not roll-formed will generally cost around $85 per square foot. What you might find, however, these types of patio covers can cost as much as $120 per square foot per roof system. The equinox louvered roof will typically cost around $85 to $100 per square foot. The space or area of the backyard patio will usually be a fantastic indicator of your overall price. A good way to determine the price is to measure this space.
We'll need to calculate the available length times the available width plus the height. If you need to add a new heater or even lighting, there are other services i.e. electrician and/or plumbers to provide the needed gas for the heaters or electricity to the lighting. These ancillary services will add to the overall cost of the new patio cover, or louvered roof system.
How many colors are available for a motorized louvered roof?
If we use the equinox louvered roof as an example, the standard color options for louverd roof systems are somewhat limited. On the other hand, custom colors are almost unlimited which is good, but will absolutely add to the cost of the pergola. The colors offered by the equinox louvered roof are White, Black, Sandstone, Clay, and Bronze. Outdoor Elements, another manufacturer of extruded aluminum louvered roof systems, offers roughly, 22 standard colors. You'll find that overall, most of these manufacturers produce fairly basic colors however.
Are louvered pergola covers hot?
Typically, aluminum louvered roof systems are much hotter in the sun than say... wood patio covers. On the other hand, steel is capable of getting pretty warm in the hot summer. On a positive note, the powder coat paint you get is not only a great protector of aluminum but acts as a buffer so the material isn't as hot in the summer heat especially when incorporating a sun shade. When compared to wood, one might consider aluminum louvered roof system to be fairly warm. Even with a roof, they in fact can be. Wood isn't much of a conductor of heat in the same manner as is aluminum for example so it makes perfect sense that your new adjustable patio would be noticeably warmer to the touch.
Now, with all that being said, we're really only talking a few degrees. It's not like you'd ex[et to receive a third-degree burn from simply brushing up against the powder coated louvered roof system. Perhaps if you held onto a piece for a considerable amount of time in the middle of summer... in Arizona.
How do you open a louvered roof system?
Yes, these automatic roofs are," touch of a button ready." Of course, by design, they operate via remote control or by a phone app in order to maximize your outdoor living experience. In other words, by sheer design, it will open and close without the use of any manual labor. Some brands will incorporate special features such as a sun shade, rain, or wind sensors. In the event of heavy winds or torrential rain, the louvered roof will automatically close.
The most recent upgrade to the adjustable patio cover is the option to use your smart device to operate the louvers on the roof. These days, when considering the benefits of using your phone to open and close the roof the price of having louvers on your roof suddenly becomes worth it. The manufacturers of the Equinox louvered roof system get it as does the company that produces the Outdoor Elements product. Our adjustable patio is not the only thing that operates remotely. Heaters, lights, and shades work off these same remotes and apps. In fact, the manufacture Somfy® also offers a wide variety of touch of a button control options. Many of which are offered by most louver roof system manufacturers.
Do patio covers block light?
The adjustable louvered roof has one single purpose, but many benefits. For example, the adjustable louvered roof will block the sun, protect items in the living space such as occupants or the furniture under the cover from the rain. At night, it can open to allow the stars to shine through. Or, if you love the sun, you can turn the louvers on the roof during the day and enjoy the entire usable space you've created to relax and really enjoy the outdoor living. These adjustable patio systems are designed for the home-owner or business owner to make the most of their useable space below the cover. Equinox louvered roof is just one of the many manufacturers who produce these types of louvered roof systems for more enjoyable outdoor living at your home or office.
What is a louvered pergola?
A patio cover that opens and closes automatically, with a push of a button is typically known as a louvered roof. Having the ability to open or close the roof give the owner the freedom to maximize their living space. Not to mention, have a pergola with a solid roof or open trellis type patio cover which allows light to pass through. In most cases, the louvered roof system opens with the touch of a button or with the use of a smart device.
Unlike the Alumawood patio covers you might run into which are made of roll-formed aluminum, a much thinner material than extruded. The roof on this system is constructed from extruded aluminum which is much stronger and therefore able to maintain a watertight seal, like the equinox louvered roof for example. If you have useable patio space and desire a patio cover for your home with benefits, the louvered roof system is exactly what you are looking for.
