What is a louvered roof?
Louvered roofs are high-end outdoor and patio roofing systems that allow you to enjoy outdoor spaces regardless of the climatic conditions. It is a great way to enjoy lunches and dinners outdoors or host parties in hot summers or cold winters. Louvered roof systems contain durable extruded aluminum, which blocks the sunlight during the day. Furthermore, these systems also allow homeowners to control the amount of sunlight that they receive at the touch of a button.
The louvers offer perfect ventilation and are built with gutters to catch any rainwater automatically. We make our patio covers in Los Angeles in such a way that it can withstand heavy downpours and endure harsh heat without causing any problems.

Aluminum patio covers Vs. wood patio covers
A patio cover is a great option to offer shade to your patio and make the space more approachable regardless of the weather. The two common types of patio covers are wooden patio roofs and aluminum roofs.
Wooden louvered roofs blend in with the natural environment and complement the styles of most homes. Wooden patio roofs are strong and sturdy in comparison to aluminum roofs and are more resistant to bending or twisting. However, it requires more maintenance as heavy rains can allow moisture to seep in, and this can lead to termite damage. Furthermore, wooden louvered roofs are also prone to cracking and fading due to constant exposure to heat and sunlight.
On the other hand, Aluminium patio covers do not require much upkeep and are much easier to maintain than wood. It is more resistant to high heat, heavy rainfall, and rust. It is more durable than wood and lasts for several years without causing any issues. However, it can be pricier than wooden roofs.
