As Designer Shade Solutions explain on their website, “These innovative systems are capable of changing the environment under the pergola where heat gets trapped with their traditional counterparts.” Retractable roof pergolas are outdoor structures that feature a retractable and tilting roof which can fully open when the weather allows, close when it starts to rain or simply tilt to offer some shade.
Modern pergolas can be installed in gardens, terraces, balconies or patios of homes to give homeowners and tenants a comfortable and all-weather space to enjoy no matter the weather. It can also be installed in commercial spaces, such as hotels, bars and restaurants to give guests special outdoor space that will make their stay even more exceptional.
