Maintenance Tips to Maximise the Lifespan of AU Louvre Roofs
Your Louvre House outdoor roofing systems, be it a louvre roof or louvre patio roof, offer a beautiful blend of style and function. Built to withstand the elements, these systems still need regular maintenance to keep them looking great and operating smoothly. In this blog, we offer our top maintenance tips to ensure the longevity and performance of your louvre roofs.
1. Cleaning Powder-Coated Finishes
Louvre House offers protective powder-coated louvre roofs and anodised finish pergolas designed to keep your outdoor structures looking their best. Regular cleaning, especially in coastal and industrial areas, is crucial. Cleaning every three months can prevent grime, pollution and airborne salt deposits from accumulating and detracting from the appearance and reflectivity of your louvres.
2. Aluminium Louvre Blade Maintenance
Our aluminium louvre blades are designed with a dual skin that keeps dirt and moisture out. Regularly cleaning accumulated dust and leaves can maintain the visual appeal and functionality of your outdoor louvre roof.
3. Electric Components Maintenance
The functionality of our louvre roofs is driven by electric motors, which control the movement of the louvre blades, enabling them to open and close as required. Like any outdoor equipment, these motors are exposed to various weather elements like rain, condensation, heat and airborne particles. This exposure necessitates regular servicing to ensure they continue to operate optimally and reliably over time. It is recommended that you engage the movement of the louvre blades at least once every two weeks.
4. Regular Cleaning and Visual Inspections
Environmental factors like salt deposits, UV light and pollution can impact your outdoor roofing system. We recommend cleaning your roofing system every six months (or every three months in harsh environments) to mitigate these effects. Regular visual inspections can help spot minor issues before they escalate.
