The retractable roof and a pergola are frequently confused due to their visual similarities alongside their common uses. However, the two products are quite different, and it is essential to know why particularity in terms of communicating the vision for your outdoor space.
The pergola is traditionally designed to incorporate elements of the garden or plants into its design. Pergolas are usually either connected to a home or can also be freestanding. They are commonly built without a roof, with the design facilitating foliage growth to play that role.
A Retractable Roof differs from a pergola in the design of the system used to retract and extend the roof. While the pergola uses foliage to provide a type of green roof, the retractable roof uses waterproof fabric, making it resistant to a range of weather conditions. While the pergola can provide some protection from the elements during times of seasonal flux, the retractable roof is a reliable option for a permanent covered extension providing year-round protection to the outdoor living space.
When planning for the installation of a retractable roof, budget considerations are always at the forefront of the decision. Retractable roofs are widely known for their high quality, high price tag, and there is some truth behind this.
Features that impact the retractable roofing system’s overall price include customizing the fabric shape and size, computerized manufacturing vs hand-cut, locally based assembly, and the level to which the final product undergoes quality testing.
Furthermore, there is a range of system control options from remote to automated to sensors, slimline architecture to complement the outlook from the location, custom-made sizes and mounting/installation options, and integrating the product effortlessly into the existing environment. Access to such a broad range of product variables, alongside the quality components and reputation, make the financial outlay for a Helioscreen one of affordable quality.
