    Default Louvre pergola roof

    Hi all,

    Weíre doing a reno and extension and in the latest drawings, the architect has suggested a louvre roof on a flat pergola. It looks great in the pictures but I donít have any experience with these systems and my Google work so far is showing that there are a few players in the market.

    Any wisdom you can share is appreciated. In particular Iím interested in:
    - longevity and reliability
    - brand/ designs/ installers to select or avoid
    - DIY suitability
    - potential costs (/sqm)

    Cheers,
    Simon

    Vergola is a brand that comes to mind
    Anything with the name patio in it is expensive/overpriced
    Depends what you want to achieve with an opening roof design.

    Thanks Cyclic. Vergola looked good in my initial search too.

    Itís a good question re what we want to achieve. Essentially weíre looking for something that does what the brouchures say they do - shade when we need it, weather proof when we need it and ventilation as the BBQs will be under it and weather permitting, and open roof suits better. All that said, perhaps thereís other ways to achieve this?
