6 Ways To take Control

6 Ways To Take Control Of Your Outdoor Living

Outdoor living has become the way to spend time with family and friends. According to “The Journal Of The American Institute Of Architects” 9-21-2017 “Popularity of outdoor living spaces has spiked 72 percent since 2012”

With the increase in outdoor living spaces people are looking for ways to spend more time in the space. Most patio covers or pergolas limit your use because you can’t control them.

Here is a great way to increase your outdoor living time. Install a Sundance Louvered Roof and control the louvers in 6 different useful ways.

Shade Control

By operating the motorized louvers with the remote control which take 16 seconds to fully open and fully close, you can adjust the shade exactly where you need it, any time you desire.

Sun Control

When you want sun on the patio or coming through your windows or patio doors you can easily get it by opening the louvers to provide up to 85% of the natural light.

Ventilation Control

The amazing thing about the Sundance Louvered Roof is when you open the louvers you get almost 100% ventilation because they are parallel with each other.

Rain Control

Because the Sundance Louvered Roof has interlocking louvers with a drip edge the rain simply runs in to the louver troughs and then out into the full perimeter gutter. It can then run into the post as a down spout or through a regular down spout. Finally it can be saved in a rain storage device or directed to water the lawn or garden.

Leaf Control

The Sundance Louvered Roof is the best leaf control cover because the gutters are made to receive standard leaf screens, and because of the built in leaf control feature. This is how it works: the leaves fall on the louvers and you only open the louvers as much as need for sun and ventilation but not where they drop. Next, when you are ready to clean the leaves off (every 2 to 4 weeks) your cleaning people move the furniture and lay down a tarp. Then they open the louvers to 160° and the leaves drop down on the tarp. Leaves on the gutter screens can be swept or blown off. Finally you dump the leaves from the tarp into the garden or garbage bags and you’re done. This will give you a pretty much leave free area until the next time to clean.

Louver Cleaning Control

We call 150° louver opening “Cleaning Mode”. This is because at that angle you can clean the top of the louvers from underneath. No other type of patio cover offers that feature only a louvered roof. You just open the louvers to 150° and take a garden hose to spray the top of the louvers clean. If needed you can use a soft brush and mild cleaner to get off any stubborn spots. Then close them and spray the bottom of the louvers clean.
