Are you thinking of investing in a retractable louvred roof but you’re not sure if it’s right for your home or commercial building? Well, you’ve come to the right place. At Designer Shade Solutions, we have over twenty years of experience in designing and installing retractable roof pergolas. And today, we’re are going to share with you the benefits of retractable roofs.

Protection from the elements

The most notable, and obvious, benefit of having a retractable pergola roof is protection from the weather. When the sun is beaming down, you can use the tilted panels to offer some shade. Likewise, when it’s raining, you can close your roof fully, sheltering yourself and your room. This allows you to ignore the restraints caused by the unpredictable British weather and enjoy your outdoor space all year round.

Adding beauty and value

When a retractable roof is installed, not only will it improve the overall aesthetic of your home, but it will also add value, which is useful when you want to sell your home. Even if you don’t plan on selling your home, a retractable fabric awning is a great attraction that will impress your friends, while looking stunning and enhancing the overall aesthetic of your house or building.

Countless styles to choose from

If you’re not sure if a retractable roof pergola would suit your home, you simply haven’t seen enough variations yet. There are so many different styles and types to choose from, that it’s impossible for there not to be a perfect match. Some types include retractable louvred roof systems with a frame, pitched retractable roof systems, frameless retractable louvred roofs, retractable glass roofs and more. This large variety ensures that every building type is covered.

Retractable roofs are fully customisable

As well as being able to choose your own style and type of retractable roof, you can also choose special add-ons that will enhance your space. For example, you may choose for your retractable roof to have built-in LED lights, to brighten up your space at night. Alternatively, you may opt for built-in heating, to keep you warm in the winter months. Whatever you choose, the team at Designer Shade Solutions are happy to accommodate it.

Retractable roofs are convenient

Retractable roofs allow you to enjoy your garden scenery and views while keeping you sheltered, and are adjustable with the touch of a button. Most retractable roofs are remote-controlled, meaning you can switch from open-top dining to fully sheltered dining with just one click. Some roofs can even be set to react to the changing weather.

Retractable roofs extend your living space

Installing a retractable roof pergola is an easy way to extend your living space and create another room for you to relax in. If the kids are hogging the TV, it’s easy to escape to the patio to enjoy some quality ‘me’ time.

So, are you thoroughly convinced that a retractable roof will transform your outdoor living space into a luxury relaxation zone? Are you ready to start planning your dream pergola? Get in touch with our friendly team today. We can be reached at 0203 978 2450 and
