There are just so many benefits of a Retractable Roof System and choosing to install one in your home.
Here, we explore some of the benefits and our options in more detail.
One of the prime benefits of a Retractable Roof System is flexibility. When completely closed, the system allows full block-out shade from the sun or protection from wind and rain. When retracted entirely, it allows sunlight in. Also perfect for night-time entertaining and stargazing during warmer months. There is also the option of partial closure, allowing the perfect amount of sun and warmth in-between seasons. Making adjustments is not only flexible, but also fast and easy with the touch of a button.

Expanded Living Area
A Retractable Roof will expand the living area of your home. It will also expand your seating area and create more functioning space, like a beautifully sheltered alfresco area. This gives you a very practical solution for modern-day entertaining, whilst creating an exceptional space for your home that is both comfortable and climate-controlled.

Protection can also extend to belongings and furnishings inside your home if your system is installed to block sunlight entering through your windows.
