Nothing calls to mind romantic summer nights more than watching the sunset, drink in hand, under a beautiful, vine-draped Vele Roof. Vele Roofs, or overhead arbours, are typically freestanding, though they can be attached to a structure such as your home or other building. While it is not necessary to cover them with greenery, they are traditionally adorned with flowering vines or hanging plants.
A Vele Roof adds visual interest and can define the space of your outdoor entertaining area. Depending on the spacing, width and angle of the rafters, your Vele Roof can also offer some shade. Additional protection from the elements can be had by adding outdoor fabric or lattice to the sides or even the top of the Vele Roof. Today, manufacturers have extended the usage of Vele Roofs even further by incorporating retractable canopies into their design. These shade Vele Roofs can be designed to cover large areas, giving them many applications for commercial properties, outdoor cafes, seating areas at marinas and golf courses, senior living facilities and other large-scale locations where patrons seek sun, shade or protection, but are still affordable for the private homeowner. Shade Vele Roof’s give outdoor environments the best of all possible worlds – a traditional look with a retractable awning that is waterproof, windproof and fade resistant.
So if you like the look of a romantic Italian villa, love the smell of climbing roses or honeysuckle, or simply want to add a distinctive look to your outdoor entertaining space, a Vele Roof may be the right choice for you.
