Function of Deck Covers

Besides beauty, what Is the purpose of each deck cover? Is it to provide shade or protection from weather, and to what degree? If your deck cover is over a dining area, protection from the sun or rain may include retracting screens, automated shades, or curtains. With an enclosed space, there is even more protection from the elements. The motorized louvered roofing system adjusts anywhere from zero to 170 degrees for your comfort. Adjustments are easily controlled by the touch of your finger on a remote or through your Smart Home technology.
