There are many reasons to choose to have a custom-made retractable roof. Retractable roofs can be fully customisable to suit your needs. Whether you require a frameless retractable roof with lighting or are looking for retractable glass systems for a large roof – going for a custom-made retractable roof might be the best solution.

Complete weather protection.

We all know the weather can be unpredictable, one minute the sun is shining and the next it’s raining cats and dogs. Having a retractable roof can provide the flexibility to enjoy the outdoors with the added comfort of an indoor area. It can be entirely closed to protect you or your clients to provide complete protection from rain or even as shade for sunny days.

Partial closures will give you the best of both with some cover and shade whilst letting some sun in and of course it can be fully opened to form an open-air environment. Due to the flexibility of having a retractable roof, you can always change it to fit your or your customer’s needs. If you have a patio or terrace a retractable pergola canopy, such as our retractable fabric awnings, could be a great alternative to protect you or your customers from the weather.

Endless customisation.

Another reason is the customisability of the retractable roofs. You can pick the shape, size, style, material of the retractable roof to fit your aesthetics and budget whether it is for home or business. It can be created for a new standalone structure or can be implemented into a pre-existing structure like a wooden pergola with roof.

An example of our bespoke retractable roofs is the custom retractable roof made for the bar Lost in Brixton. The jungle-themed bar has a unique 150 sqm retractable roof which opens up during the summer to create an open-air atmosphere to help build on the jungle aesthetics of the bar.

Maximise outdoor space.

Retractable roofs can be a great way to add more space to an outdoor space that wasn’t being used to the maximum due to the weather. Having a retractable roof pergola can be used to provide additional seating for dining all year round as shown by the custom-made retractable roof that is installed at Dusk Restaurant in Brentwood. This retractable roof is used to create a casual outdoor dining area for their customers, a space that can be experienced no matter the weather.

In a home, a retractable roof, such as a retractable pergola, can be used to extend your current living space by offering an outdoor space with the comfort of an indoor area. Such outdoor space can be used as an outdoor dining space or entertainment area that can be enjoyed all year round.
