Do Louvered Patio Covers Provide Shade?

When relaxing on your outdoor patio, soaking up the sun should be an option, not mandatory. Shade is important, not just for temperature control but protecting your skin and eyes from harmful UV radiation.

There is no comparison to a louvered patio cover when it comes to shade control on sunny days. This adjustable roof has specially designed louvers that rotate up to 180 degrees. With the quick touch of a button, you can control the louvers to provide your desired level of shade. The beauty of this system is that it is available on-demand, using a remote or smartphone app.

The Benefits of Shaded Patios

Unlike a solid patio cover that can trap heat and hamper ventilation, a louvered roof allows you to enjoy the best of both worlds: customized shade and continuous air circulation.

The shade offered by a louvered patio cover has other key benefits. It keeps your furniture and outdoor décor protected from sun and rain damage. Even premium outdoor furniture is susceptible to fading from UV exposure. Shade is the best way to prolong the lifespan (and preserve the color) of patio furniture and fixtures, which are costly to replace.

A louvered patio cover makes your outdoor environment more functional and comfortable in all types of weather. A shaded patio:

  • Blocks solar radiation, making the air feel 10-15 degrees cooler
  • Protects all your belongings from the outdoor elements
  • Provides a comfortable outdoor living space
  • Adds value to your home or property

Louvered roofs offer shade for your outdoor patio without sacrificing the benefits of fresh breezes and filtered sunlight. You can entertain friends and spend quality time outside without worrying about overexposure. Moreover, these state-of-the-art systems can blend seamlessly with existing architecture and take your backyard space to the next level.
