Since 1946 Cardinal Aluminum of Louisville Kentucky USA has been an American leader in aluminum extrusions. Cardinal Aluminum has operated under one simple guiding philosophy: “We take total responsibility for the end product, from die to delivery.” In 2014 Cardinal launched a new consumer based product called American Louvered Roofs, which they recently changed to WEATHERGUARD Motorized Pergolas. With a 300,00 SF aluminum extrusion factory with in-house electrostatic powder coating capabilities, ALR quickly became a premier louvered roof product in the industry. Now as WEATHERGUARD, they are the only Louvered Roof company who manufactures their own product, in their own factory!

This is our Louver
It is what provides the shade for a patio cover. It is also the remote-control-adjustable portion of the patio cover. Think of mini blinds 4" wide laying flat as a patio roof! Each Louver acts as its own gutter to channel the water away. This Louver is made from extruded aluminum and is extremely strong and durable, and electrostatically powder coated. All painted parts have a Lifetime Warranty. Louvers are available in 2ft increments beginning at 8′ and ending at 24′. (e.g., 8,10,12,14,16,18,20,22,24 feet) We have the longest louver length in the industry!
This is our Rafter
A rafter is what holds a louver in place and is also what controls the movement of the louvers. Within the 2" x 5" rafter is a separate hollow channel that can be used for adding an I-Beam for strength, and/or running cables and wiring. Other customization's such as mounting speakers or adding LED strip lighting are available.
This is our Beam
Our 2" x 5.5" aluminum beams are designed specifically for use with our louvered roofs and aluminum posts. The beams are easily cut for any type of customization, and are engineered to support the roof system. Ceiling Fans, Heaters, and Misting Systems can also be attached to our beams.
This is our aluminum Post
Our 5" x 5" aluminum post is configurable to almost any style. Choose from the standard column design (below left), or add a snap in insert for a fluted or flat look (left), complete with matching trim. You can even use post panel inserts that are different colors for a great two-toned look (below right).
Optional Gutter System
An optional gutter system can be added to have the total water free experience. Normally the rain water would flow off of one side, like the grassy side. Adding our gutter system creates a seamless drip free roof system!
