1. Attached or freestanding?

One of the first questions you should ask is whether you would like your pergola structure attached to your property or freestanding. A louvre roof can be attached to your home or business, extending your indoor space onto a terrace or patio area. An attached louvred roof would be ideal for restaurants looking to maximise space and increase outdoor dining even in balmy weather.

A freestanding louvre roof is a great option for those looking to create a garden or patio feature and will add weather protection for spaces such as an outdoor kitchen, dining and pool areas. Whatever your requirements, Crocodilla can help you make the right decision based on your needs and use.

2. Level of sun protection

Placement of a louvre roof in your patio or garden is important to plan. Your requirements for sun shade will change, both inside and outside, throughout the year. As a freestanding pergola, the louvred roof makes an additional statement over any garden feature, such as outdoor kitchen and dining area. And in areas like this lighting and shade requirements change as the seasons change. The motorized blades, which can be oriented up to 150°, will allow you to choose the degree of sunshine you enjoy and when.

If you are extending your patio, and installing a louvre roof as an attached pergola, position the wide blades perpendicularly to your home, maintaining optimum interior brightness. In order to keep your home cool for the summer months, additional shade from the sun may be needed. Think about adding automated vertical blinds, a standard feature in the V3 Vermont louvred roof model. Protecting yourself and your guests from the elements, while keeping your enjoying your outside space longer.

3. Customise

One of the best things about our products is that they are fully customisable to allow you to create a bespoke patio or garden space that fits your needs. In need of additional sun protection? Think about the addition of automated vertical blinds that can be adjusted throughout the day as needed. 

Looking to create a space for outdoor parties and fun family BBQs? Why not add an audio system and LED-lighting and get everyone outside. Want to extend the use of your louvred roof in the winter? Add some solamagic heaters. Better yet, think about turning your louvred roof into a convertible veranda with a glass enclosure system. Glass rooms are adaptable to balconies and terraces, as well as being a great function for your garden or patio, add folding or sliding windows, expanding your living space all year round.
