Meet the Team
The Sundance Team
Founder | Advisor
Hal started selling patio covers in 1981 and discovered motorized louvered patio Covers in 2007. He worked for three different companies and in 2016 decided to design his own system. Combining all the elements that made the other products great and then adding several patent pending elements that he new would take the product to the next level, Hal was able to design the best louvered patio cover in the industry. Hal then founded Sundance Louvered Roofs LLC to market the next generation product. Hal has since transitioned into an advisory role for the company as he enjoys his retirement playing golf, touring the US in his RV and spending time with his wonderful wife, four joyous children and 12 rambunctious grandchildren.
