Taking Advantage of Adjustable Louvers This Fall

Second floor wooden deck with white pergola covering looks like a tree house

Once the fall weather starts to kick in, the warmth of the sun, rather than the cool shade of a solid patio cover, is what we crave most often when we venture outdoors. As sunny days grow fewer, taking the time to savor them as they come grows so much more important. But it’s impossible to do that on patios and decks topped with conventional roofs and covers. We suppose you could drag a deck chair down the steps and into the yard where the light is just right or push your patio furniture into the sliver of sunlight uncovered by roof… But wouldn’t you rather take advantage of full, year-round climate control with the Arcadia system?

It may not be Thanksgiving yet, but if you installed an Arcadia adjustable roof over your outdoor living space earlier this year, fall is when you’ll really be thankful for it! If you don’t have one already, you may want to start considering the prospect of an adjustable patio cover from all angles… literally. Just imagine the louvers of a roof angled over your patio, shifting from zero to ninety to almost one hundred and eighty degree angles and back again with ease!

This adjustability is all too useful in East Coast climates in which the weather can change from summery highs to chill breezes within the same October week. Whether it’s hot or cold, bright or drizzly, an Arcadia roof can create a comfortable patio setting for you and your family to enjoy. Open the louvers on cooler, sun-dappled days to soak up some rays and give your roof the classic look of a garden pergola. Pivot the louvers back into a sealed and locked position if you get too hot and need some shade or if it starts raining and you need some complete weather protection. You can even utilize Arcadia rain detection technology by installing a patio cover that automatically closes when it feels moisture. Never again will an unpredictable climate determine how you get to use your patio!

In term of what to do on your roofed patio, just remember outdoor living doesn’t stop when summer ends! This October, decorate your patio with festive lanterns and big, orange pumpkins for Halloween. Use your grill to prepare fall dishes like grilled sweet potatoes, butternut squash, ribs, pork chops and roast hazelnut dishes. Build a fire and cozy up for s’mores and spooky stories. Don’t let an uncovered (or poorly covered) patio space ruin your autumnal outdoor fun this year! Enjoy your patio to the fullest this fall by scheduling an Arcadia louvered roof installation.
