At Louvre Roofs Australia, we specialise in creating beautiful outdoor roof designs that are perfect for all seasons. Our roofs can be changed with the simple press of a button to suit the weather, along with your general wants and needs from your outdoor patio space. So, whether it’s the summertime and you’re looking for a shady outdoor space to read a book, or it’s the winter and you want to soak up a little bit of Vitamin D, our louvre roof systems have got you covered!
Our roofs can provide protection from the rain during the summer months, while also having the ability to be opened up to bring the sunlight in during chilly winter days. Keep reading to find out more about how our versatile outdoor roof designs can be set to suit your needs all year-round!
During the Summer months you’re probably looking to block a lot of the hot sun and heat out, so you can still enjoy your outdoor space without worrying about sun damage. Our roofs can be placed in a range of different positions with the simple push of a button, with many options available to block out the sun (to different levels).
The angled-open position can help block the hot sun, while still letting light into the space. The partially-open position can also provide shade from the sun, as well as blocking light rain. With these positions, it’s important to not where the sun is in the sky and change the louvres to block it, accordingly. For particularly sunny and warm days, there’s also the option of the fully-closed position, which is great for blocking out the sun.
Summertime can also mean more rain and storms. For light rain, the partially-open position can be great for keeping dry. If there’s heavier rain about and you wish to still enjoy your outdoor living space, then the fully-closed position can be used to block out the shower.
Autumn can be a beautiful time of year: the weather starts to cool down a little bit and many leaves begin to put on a colour show! This is also the season for many trees to shed their leaves, which can mean a lot of raking! If you have trees above your outdoor living space, you may be sick of having them landing all over your furniture, and needing to sweep them away before getting comfortable!
Our louvre roofs can be placed in the fully-closed position, blocking lots of these leaves from falling into your space. Once you’re ready to clear them away, simply open the louvres back up and let them fall down. Alternatively, you can clear them off the way you would with a stationary roof.
Ah, winter. A time for hot chocolate, dressing gowns, and snuggling up on the couch with Netflix. Winter can also be a lovely time to get outside and enjoy the fresh, cool air. If you want to soak up some warmth outside during the winter, our louvres can be placed into the fully-open position to let the sunshine in (just remember to still be sun-safe!).
For particularly cold days where you feel like being outdoors but sheltered, you can place the louvres into the fully-closed position, creating a nice, cosy space to relax and unwind in. Just imagine, sitting outside on your patio with a warm drink and a good book – heaven!
Spring is a beautifully colourful time of year, with flowers coming out all over gardens across Australia. The customisable nature of our louvre roofs makes them ideal for those looking to change their level of coverage. For example, at the beginning of spring, when it is cooler, you may wish to open the roof up fully to let as much sunlight in as possible. Towards the end of spring, when things begin to heat up in preparation for summer, the louvres can be placed in the fully-closed position to block out the sun and heat.
Louvre roofs can help you make the most of the gorgeous spring weather, whether its on the cooler or warmer side of the scale, so you can enjoy this beautiful season outdoors.
