9 Benefits of Having a Louvered Roof

benefits f having a louvered roof

Whether your idea of outdoor fun is entertaining guests, playing with the kids, or curling up to a good book, a louvered roof lets you enjoy the great outdoors through all seasons in comfort and style.

For landlords and property developers, a louvered roof can greatly boost the resale value and market appeal of your home. Considering how much us Aussies love to spend time outdoors, the idea of owning a private luxury outdoor space is a real clincher for buyers on the property market.

Of course, these benefits barely scratch the surface as to explain why a louvered roof is a great investment. Here are 9 more reasons why a louvered roof should be on your renovation checklist.

Weather Protection

Tired of being washed out by the rain? Or sweating in the scorching hot sun? Worry no more. When you invest in a louvered roof these minor inconveniences become a problem of the past.

Open the louvres to let in more natural light and airflow. Close them to protect yourself from rain, hail, and extreme heat. Thanks to the 180 degree rotation you can adjust the louvres to provide just the right amount of light and air, keeping you comfortable through all seasons.

Better Social Life

There’s something about being outside that makes socialising extra special. When you have a dedicated outdoor space you have more opportunities to work, rest, and play in the company of close friends and loved ones.

Whether you want to host a lavish dinner party, Sunday roast with mates, or a romantic dinner for two under the stars, the world is your oyster. You have the freedom to spend as much time outdoors as you wish, any way you like.

Don’t be surprised if your friends and family think of any excuse to spend more time at your place!

Increased Resale Value

You’ve probably asked yourself this question before, “Sounds great, but just how much of a Return on Investment (ROI) can an opening louvered roof really deliver?” That depends on a few things.

One of the key factors is quality of materials. Here the old adage ‘you get what you pay for’ very much does apply. Simply put, the cheaper the materials are the less likely they are to withstand the diverse Australian climate. What does this mean for you? Well, after just a few years of use – even with regular maintenance – you may start to see the signs of ageing in the form of chips, splinters, rust, corrosion, mould, fungi, decay, fading, warping, and more.

Another factor is the design of the outdoor space itself. If the area is spacious and complements the current design of the house, then it’s bound to impress buyers. But if the area is cramped and doesn’t really ‘gel’ with the rest of the place, its inclusion may not be enough to justify a higher resale price.

While the average ROI can vary considerably, if the job is done expertly and correctly, a louvered roof could provide an 80 ROI.

Quality Materials

When you purchase from Opening Louvre Roof you can be confident in the quality and craftsmanship of our products.

To ensure lasting performance each component – which includes the roof, support beams, guttering, and more – is treated with a weatherproof finish. Powder coating is available in a range of colours to match your current home and the surrounding outdoor space.
Better still, all timber is treated with a UV finish to prevent warping and fading.

Extra Living Space

If you feel a bit cramped inside than an outdoor extension is a great way to free up space.

How? Well, you could transfer a room in the house that already exists from inside to the outdoor space. For example, you could transform the outdoor space into an alfresco dining area, and then convert the previous dining room into a 2nd living room.

Depending on your specific preferences, there are a number of ways you can make the most of your new outdoor space. If you’re stuck for ideas, talk to a louvered roof installation expert. They will gladly show you design ideas to give you inspiration and share their own expert tips as well.

Satisfaction Guaranteed

Sound cliché? Maybe, but there is truth behind this statement. When you purchase a roof from Opening Louvre Roof, you will have peace of mind knowing your investment is safe in the form of a workmanship guarantee and manufacturer warranty.

That means if you are not 100% thrilled with the quality of your louvered roof, the team will be happy to address your concerns and rectify any issues that come up during your warranty period. Best of all? You pay nothing more to enjoy this benefit.

Complement Your Current Home

From roof designs and colours to roof profiles, materials, and weatherproof coatings, nearly every aspect of your opening roof can be customised to suit your preferred style and budget.

With the right combination, it’s easy to make your outdoor roof look like a natural extension of your home. This way, you can preserve the consistency of your existing design and even give an older home a modern facelift.


With a louvered opening roof you can reduce the cost of your energy bills. When the weather heats up, simply close the louvres and you won’t have any sunlight breach the interior space.

By keeping the heat out, you won’t need to rely as much on costly appliances to stay cool during summer. Therefore you will save money in the long-run. Plus, you’ll be doing your part to reduce your carbon footprint too!

Convenient Wireless Control

Thanks to the handy remote control, you can operate your louvres from any part of the house within a reasonable range of the device. With the click of a button you can close the louvres when storm clouds are brewing, or open up the roof to enjoy the brilliant sun.

No need to get up from where you are to use a manual winder. Stay where you are and control the louvres from the comfort of your current spot. Best of all? You can request built-in rain and wind sensors, which automatically closes the louvres to avoid rainfall and protect the roof from damage due to extreme wind.
