Louvered Roofs: The Evolution Of The Traditional Pergola

Outdoor Living Spaces Changing Landscape

The traditional pergola comprises vertical posts and a roof that provides partial shade. With slats moving across the top, only partial shade can be achieved at certain angles. The primary goal of a standard pergola in the past was to integrate the indoor and outdoor space and offer a feeling of enclosure. The traditional pergola would often be used as walkways or sitting areas for gardens and courtyards. The louvered roof is the innovative solution to the conventional pergolas problems and truly builds off the idea of a pergola. Imagine the feeling of a beloved pergola while also receiving the functionality of shade control, and rain protection. That’s what the louvered roof does to the traditional pergola idea.

Louvered roofs on the other hand, still give that same feeling of a limited and enclosed outdoor space but also permit users to control shade, sunlight, and rain protection. These are all things the standard pergola lack.
