Colorbond

At Louvre Roofs Australia, we aim to create tough and versatile outdoor roofs that can be enjoyed all year round, regardless of the weather. As a company, we are focused on customer satisfaction, and work closely with builders, draftsmen, architects, designers, and construction personnel to ensure the very best quality outcomes.

Our louvres are made from marine-grade aluminium. All of our materials are manufacturers in Australia, and we offer a wide range of different colours available for you to choose from for your project. On this page, we focus on Colorbond. Read on to learn more about this steel, as well as some information about our company, and the benefits of having one of our roofs installed!

Colorbond
This material is an extra that you can choose when designing your louvre roof. It is popular with outdoor construction due to its reputation for durability and simple maintenance requirements. Colorbond is also available in a large range of colours. This type of steel contains recycled content, and can also be recycled, itself, which is always a plus. 

Colorbond is owned and manufactured by BlueScope, and has been around for more than 50 years, meaning it is tried, tested, and trusted. The steel is used on fences, roofs, gutters, garage doors, sheds, and walls, just to name a few examples. Colorbond is used for both commercial and residential structures around Australia, and the world. Some examples of the material used on commercial structures include Melbourne’s Margaret Court Arena, and the Adelaide Velodrome.

About our company
Our company has been in the roofing industry for more than 20 years, and we are passionate about creating outdoor living spaces that are not only practical, but also built to withstand our tough Aussie conditions. Our two designers have more than 40 years of experience between them, and are able to help you create the outdoor living space you desire. 

Help with plans and permits
The process of getting plans and permits for your new outdoor addition can seem a little daunting. Our experts are available to help you navigate council planning, along with VBA building code, for the process of obtaining permits and certification. As a company, we want to make the entire project as stress-free as possible for our customers.

Versatility at your fingertips
Louvre roof systems are a versatile solution for those looking for an adjustable outdoor roof.  Our roofs can be placed in many different positions. These positions can be selected via the press of a button. There is also a rain sensor function that automatically closes the roof when it detects rain, in order to protect your outdoor space and furniture. Some positions of our roofs are as follows:

Fully-open position
This position allows the sunlight in, making it great for cold winter days when you wish to let some warmth in. 

Angled-open position
The angled-open position blocks the hot sun, while still allowing plenty of light and airflow into the space. 

Partially-open position
Ideal for blocking out light rain, this position allows you to stay dry in your outdoor space during a drizzle. While able to block out light rain, the partially-open position still lets plenty of light and ventilation into the space. This position also provides shade against the hot sun. 

Fully-closed position
Shelters your outdoor living space against heavy rain, protecting you and your outdoor furniture from the water. No water can come between the blades when they are placed in the closed position. The interlocking louvres of the roofs also carry the rain water to the gutters.  

Benefits of our roofs
Our roofs have many benefits. Below is just a selection of them:

10-year warranty
All of our roofs come with a 10-year workmanship and product guarantee. We believe in our products, and aim to give you peace of mind with your new roof. We also have an industry-leading 8-year motor warranty for our roofs, which covers both the labour and the parts. In contrast, most other louvre installers offer just the standard 3-year warranty.

Customisable
Our products are customisable, with options such as LED lighting, wall-mounted switched and push buttons, and home automation also available. Our roofs can be created in hundreds of colours, and there are limitless design possibilities, meaning you can truly customise your outdoor roofing to suit your space. 

Ventilation
Ventilation and airflow are important for an outdoor space. Our roof louvres can be placed in several different positions, allowing you to be protected against the elements, while still getting plenty of fresh air and light into the outdoor space. Colorbond steel is a high-quality, low-maintenance material.
