How does a louvre roof work?

A louvered roof, or opening roof, is a series of horizontal slats that can be opened, closed, or angled to let in just the right amount of light and air while protecting an area from direct sun, rain, and, to some extent, noise. Our louvre systems are made of extruded aluminium.


Louvre roofs are operated via remote control. This allows for the precision placing of the louvres and takes the manual labour out of adjusting the roof.

Controllers can even be connected to home automation systems and have a state-of-the-art rain sensor system added to ensure the louvres close when it gets wet outside – even if you aren’t home.

How much is a louvre roof?

Louvre roof costs vary based on the project needs and are specific and individual to each property. To get a cost estimate, consider calling us on 0423 565 472 to discuss your requirements. These discussions will assist us in knowing what to supply, and the cost associated to better inform you of a clear estimate.

How long does construction take?

Generally this will depend on the style or roofing and the size of the project. However most projects are generally finished within a week or two. 

We inform you at the time we arrange the site commencement date of the intended time the job will take to complete.

How do I clean my louvre roof?

Louvre roofs are manufactured from low maintenance, weather resistant aluminium. With some general maintenance your louvre roof will offer years of use and visual appeal. Regular cleaning will overcome the effects of environmental damage such as pollution, ultra violet light and salt deposits. Cleaning should take place every 3-6 months, more regularly for coastal areas.

To comply with warranty requirements and to extend the effective life of anodised/powder coated finishes, very simple maintenance and regular visual inspections should be scheduled and undertaken.

We recommend bi-monthly cold water washing as well as six monthly washes, with warm water & detergent.

1 - Carefully remove any loose deposits with a wet sponge.
2 - Wash down using a soft brush (non abrasive) and a mild household detergent solution to remove dust, salt, dirt and other deposits.
3 - Anodised finishes with greasy deposits or hard to remove grime, should be cleaned with a soft cloth dipped in white spirit then wiped with a dry rag.
4 - Rinse off with lots of clean fresh water.

DO remove obvious deposits as they occur.
DO NOT use abrasive steel wool, scrapers, scouring liquids or powders to remove paint splashes - these will damage your anodised/powder coating.
DO NOT use aggressive solvents, thinners, petrol etc, on powder coating as these solvents will attack gloss levels and reduce its life expectancy.
DO NOT let any solvents used on anodised finishes come in contact with any rubber components as they can degrade them.
DO NOT expose your anodised/powder coatings to excessive heat, heaters or hot air guns - these may damage the coating.

Are louvre roofs waterproof?

A louvre roof is rainproof under normal weather conditions, even steady rain, a louvre roof will not let rain in. When in the fully closed position your louvre roof will block out most rain, however rainproof does not mean waterproof – a louvre roof is an adjustable, opening roof and therefore low angle, high pressure rainfall can find its way between the louvres or around the guttering. A louvre roof cannot be as waterproof as a conventional fixed patio roof. Whilst your open louvre brings the benefits of “indoor-outdoor”, it is not 100% waterproof in severe weather conditions.

Chris and I have had numerous comments from people on how good the louvres look and how well the structure fits in with the rest of the house.. We chose Coastline Alfresco as Amanda and Craig demonstrated a great knowledge, experience in the product, were honest and had a down to earth approach. We certainly will have no hesitation in recommending them to others.

We absolutely love the louvre roof. We had the motorised blinds installed and we use that space all year round now. No troubles with the roof at all!
