What’s the Best Patio Cover?

When it comes to outdoor sun protection, there are a lot of coverage options. Awnings, pergolas, cabanas, umbrellas and permanent roofs are all viable patio covers but we think the Arcadia louvered roof system is the best choice.

Most other patio-covering structures are “fixed,” non-movable covers. How do these porch and patio covers compare to an adjustable louvered roof from Arcadia?

Most porch covers and patio covers are fixed. They don’t adjust so you don’t get to decide the amount of light hitting your porch. Depending on the time of day, you might be in full shade or full sun. And there’s little in between. A cloth patio canopy can’t let in full sun when you want it and its UV protection is incomplete. Other adjustable roofs are flimsy and poorly constructed. Many only adjust in a small range of angles and many more can’t be closed fully for complete shade and weather protection.

With an Arcadia cover, you get the best of both a fully protective awning and a sunny morning coffee spot. In other words, you get perfect sun blocking and 99% UV ray protection when you want it and plenty of sun when you want that. No need to compromise. All our models’ louvers adjust in seconds, so the power is in your hands. With an adjustable louvered roof, you’re no longer at the mercy of the forecast. You can create cool shade at any hour and let the sun in when it’s already chilly outside. You can even reduce your home’s heating and cooling costs by blocking hot rays before they can enter your home through windows or glass doors but letting in the sun in winter to help heat the space. Our motorized adjustable louvered roof operates at the touch of a button, and even has a rain detector that can close your roof automatically during unexpected downpours. The internal motors are powered by self-sustaining solar panels so the roof will never affect your home’s electricity costs.

Unbeatable protection and quality, energy efficiency and the power to personalize… That’s what makes Arcadia the best!
