Why Louvre Roof Systems Are A Good Choice

A Vergola louvre opening roof system has several advantages over any of the outdoor living brands on the market using aluminium, including the cost. When choosing the best louvre roofing system for your home in Australia, Vergola surpasses the rest, offering not only an affordable cost and great value but a list of design factors that are the envy of our competition.

Vergola louvred roofing systems have a distinctive double-skinned Colorbond steel design that provides outstanding thermal insulation, unlike aluminium, which absorbs heat. The superb sound-reducing aerofoil technology used in manufacturing the louvres keeps out traffic noise or the racket going on next door. You can also increase ventilation and reduce heating and cooling costs with the adjustable louvre blades.

If windows are being protected by your Vergola, you can control how much or how little sunlight you want on them. Windows heat up as the sun shines on them, radiating warmth inside the house. In the hot summer, you don’t want the sun on the windows, so simply adjust the retractable blades to suit.

Some of the benefits of Vergola’s louvred roof systems and why they’re the best choice:

  • Light control
  • Durability
  • Weather protection
  • Smart design
  • Remote controlled
  • Rain sensor
  • Retractable aerofoil louvres
  • Energy efficiency
  • Design/configuration
  • Customisation/integration


Vergola is the original, versatile, open/close, louvred roof system that adds energy-efficiency and functionality, creating a snug and sheltered space for homes and businesses to enjoy all year. 

Vergolas adorn more than 12,000 homes across Sydney and Northern NSW.


About Vergola NSW Louvre Roof Systems

The louvred roofing system is designed and manufactured by Vergola in its Terrey Hills factory on Sydney’s beautiful Northern Beaches. The louvre roof system can provide winter warmth and refreshing coolness in the summer heat. The double skinned and unique aerofoil (wing-shaped) louvres on the Vergola create an air gap that insulates and reduces heat radiating into the living area below.

With the Vergola roof system’s adjustable blades, 89 per cent of all available light shines into your outdoor space. So, the Vergola louvred roof systems are the perfect choice for keeping the temperatures controlled in a covered area – a single-skinned aluminium louvre roof system just can’t compete.


The Vergola louvred roof system’s quality control is the top of the range, and for seamless attachment to a building, Vergola’s frame and beam cappings are superb!


Are Louvre Roofs and Outdoor Patios Waterproof?

The Vergola louvre roofing system comes with efficient built-in rain protection via a sensor. This unique, interlocking design feature means the blades close when it rains. At the first drop of a shower, the roof shuts automatically, so there’s no need to worry. It can tackle anything that the Australian climate can throw at it, whether it be a natural breeze, sun, wind or rain.

And when it’s not raining, you can simply adjust the angle of the blades with the remote control for the perfect balance of sunshine, shade and ventilation to suit the weather conditions and the seasons. Under normal conditions, the Vergola opening roofs are rainproof but in a storm, in very heavy rain and strong wind, a small amount of rain could enter. However, there’s an optional weather seal for optimal protection!

Our Australian climate can be quite unpredictable, especially in residential areas. Vergola opening and closing louvre roofs are made with Colorbond steel and can provide you with excellent protection from breeze, wind and natural elements. The motorised and retractable Vergola louvre roofs allow you to choose the settings that suit you as there are various options available to make it operable according to your needs at home. The opening roof that you choose can be designed according to your custom requirements and all opening roofs come with a family warranty so you can be assured that you’re protected.

How much does a Vergola Louvre Roof System Cost?

Made in Australia Using Quality Colorbond Steel

Colorbond steel is well known as the toughest and most reliable roofing material on the market, and it’s made in Australia for our weather conditions. That’s why Vergola louvre roof systems use Colorbond steel, chosen for the roofs of almost half of all new homes built in this country.

Colorbond is made from Zincalume steel coated with an aluminium/magnesium/zinc alloy with a conversion layer on the steel surface as a bonding agent. The finishing touch is an exterior-grade paint baked onto the surface to protect it from peeling, cracking and chipping. That’s why our Vergola roof louvre systems retain their new look for much longer.

Vergola’s open/close louvred roofing system can be incorporated into a variety of structures, either as part of an existing building or freestanding, so if you’re searching online for ‘louvred roof systems near me’ don’t go past Vergola.
