Why it’s important to pick the right design for your Louvre roof


The Look

There’s nothing frivolous or superficial about prioritising the look of your Louvre Roof. When it’s a permanent part of your home, you want something you’ll continue to enjoy the sight of. Do you desire something sleek and stylish, something “minimal” and streamlined or something unique that will give your guests something to talk about? Maybe a little from all of the above?


All of our Louvre roofs can be adjusted to the weather conditions, providing you with shelter from the rain or the opportunity to bask in the sunshine in a snap. While all will vastly improve the quality of your outdoor entertaining area and the time you spend there, they all have different strengths. Maybe your priority is something affordable and quick to build? Maybe it’s something that will allow the rain to flow off your roof easily? Or maybe it’s something that will cause your guest’s jaws to drop? Whatever your goals are, Louvre Roof’s outdoor roof designs will help you achieve them.

The Long-Term Investment

Having a Louvre roof can raise the value of your property down the track, especially if you choose a particularly distinctive or high-end design. If you think you might sell your house in the distant or not-so-distant future, this is an advantage worth considering.

Our outdoor roof designs

At Louvre Roofs we know that one size doesn’t fit all. That’s why we offer a range of classic styles and some custom ones too. We also have hundreds of colours for you to choose from. Customise your Louvre roof exactly to your own personal style by choosing the colours of all the structure’s different parts, including the beams, the posts and the rests of the framework. Our designers have almost 40 years of experience between them. So even if choosing the specifics of your roof’s palette sounds a little daunting right now, they have the expertise to guide you and help you choose.

Some of the Louvre styles we offer include:

The Gable

You may not know the name but there’s no doubt you’ve seen the design. The gable has two identical sloping sides that come together at the top. The triangular extension at the top is the part known as the “gable”. As well as being a classically attractive design that most likely goes with the shape of your home, the gable has its practical advantages. It’s inexpensive, creates a spacious look and feel for your patio and allows rainwater to drain off easily instead of clogging your gutters. It’s a timeless design that looks good for your guests without being too showy.

The Flat

Although it’s actually angled ever-so-slightly to allow rain to drain off, this simple design appears flat to the naked eye. A straightforward and low-cost style, the flat basically always looks stylish. It’s low maintenance and very easy to clean due to the lack of nooks and crannies for sediment to get stuck in. All you have to do is spray it with a hose.

The Skillion

With a more prominent slope than the flat, the skillion is another classic design that’s low-maintenance and also allows plenty of fresh air and light into your patio.


Maybe you want a Louvre design that’s unique, original and destined to become a conversation piece when you have guests over, e.g.: a cube or pyramid? If that’s what you’re after, chat to our team at Louvre Roofs. While we’re good at classic and timeless, we can also do unique and attention-grabbing just as well.
