Louvre Solutions’ roof systems are fully customisable with heating, lighting, ventilation, as well as offering integrated pull-down side screens. Each roof comes standard with an integrated rain sensor, which allows the roof to close automatically in the advent of rain. Canterbury-based Louvre Solutions, owned and operated by Craig Rogers, knows how to create the perfect outdoor space. Whether entertaining, relaxing, or simply expanding your indoor area, Louvre Solutions can bring your ultimate outdoor environment to fruition.

Louvre Solutions’ louvre systems are manufactured with quality elements, precision engineering and aesthetic options to realise your vision of the ultimate outdoor space. The patio louvre system is strong and conforms to nearly all wind and snow load requirements. The louvres integrate flawlessly into any architectural style. Louvre Solutions manufactures its louvres from extruded aluminium which offers greater durability than traditional patio covers. Unlike plastic or fabric, these components will outperform in heat and rain.

“When we started out, these premium products were prohibitively expensive, reserved for the elite. While the quality of the products has never faltered, we have been able to make them accessible to a wider market and work with a number of clients ranging from entry level properties through to very high-spec homes,” Craig explains.

The benefits of a louvre roof are many, ranging from aesthetic to practical. They are a brilliant addition to homes and can be proactively planned as part of the design/build process or can be retrofitted once the need is identified post construction. “Following the earthquakes, there has been a significant shift to subdivisions where there is generally no established exterior cover. Houses are exposed and owners try to manage environmental conditions and the impact they have on their homes through other means, often with poor results. We collaborated with engineers to come up with the ideal system to mitigate these challenges and a louvre roof proved to be the ultimate solution.”

With more than 10 years in the industry, Louvre Solutions’ reputation has been built on a solid foundation. Craig and his team pride themselves on their burgeoning portfolio of repeat and referred business generated through word of mouth, independent builders, architects, landscape architects and building companies.

Louvre Solutions manufactures its products at its Canterbury-based factory. A louvre roof can be ready for installation within four to six weeks, making today the perfect time to order yours to ensure maximum extended-summer enjoyment.

Luxurious Louvres: Louvre Solutions

Adding a louvre roof to your existing home or new build in the middle of winter is the perfect timing to protect you from the winter elements and to be ready for the summer months.

“The weather may be considerably cooler at this time of year but a customised, automated louvre roof over a patio, spa pool, or deck, or as a freestanding feature anywhere on a property, provides a space sheltered from the elements,” says Craig Rogers, owner of Canterbury-based company, Louvre Solutions.
“There are often fine, crisp days in winter when it would be great to be outside and the protection of a louvre roof can make doing that so much more appealing, especially with our integrated heating and side screens.”
During the warmer months, louvre roofs are equally beneficial, making them structures for all seasons.
Craig has significant experience in the architectural louvre industry and knows the benefits of his company’s products. Quality is paramount too over the range of products, which, as well as motorised opening louvre roofs, also includes elliptical sun louvres, privacy and security screens, gates, fences, chimney cowls, cedar louvres and vertical sun shades – all the company’s louvre roofs come with a ten-year warranty.
With more than ten years in the industry, Louvre Solutions’ reputation has been built on a solid foundation. Testament to this is the positive feedback from clients and a robust network of contacts including independent builders, building companies, architects and landscape architects, all of whom recommend the company to potential clients.

“I work with our clients throughout the entire process for every project, from design to manufacturing and installation. This relationship is very important to Louvre Solutions. I know what works and what doesn’t, both from a practical and aesthetic perspective and attending to any adjustment needs that may follow is all part of our service,” says Craig.
The custom-made louvre roof product, with bespoke features like powder coated colouring tailored to the client’s needs, can be included in a new build and/or retrofitted to an existing home. Many louvre-roof installations are taking place now, not only to take advantage of the benefits they offer during winter months, but also to be well-prepared for summer.
While Louvre Solutions’ headquarters and factory are based in the heart of Canterbury, the company has agents throughout the South Island based in Timaru, Wanaka, Nelson, Marlborough and Queenstown.
