6 Ways to Take Control of Your Outdoor Living
Outdoor living has become a 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 that 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.
By operating the motorized louvers with the remote control, which takes 16 seconds to fully open and fully close, you can adjust the shade exactly where you need it, any time you desire.
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.
The amazing thing about the Sundance Louvered Roof is when you open the louvers, and you get almost 100% ventilation because they are parallel with each other.
Because the Sundance Louvered Roof has interlocking louvers with a drip edge, the rain simply runs into the louver troughs and then out into the full perimeter gutter. It can then run into the post as a downspout or through a regular downspout. Finally, it can be saved in a rain storage device or directed to water the lawn or garden.
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 you need 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 the 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.
We are one of the largest aluminum louvered roof manufacturers in the United States. Our manufacturing facilities are located in Ogden, Utah, and Jupiter, Florida, and we have facilities set up in Cape May New Jersey, Minot North Dakota, Lake of the Ozarks Missouri, and Tucson Arizona.
The Sundance All Season Pergola is made of durable extruded tempered aluminum and comes with a maintenance-free powder-coated finish. Our louvered pergolas are made to withstand up to 160 mph winds and up to 60 lbs per sq ft of snow loads. Full engineering for our louvered pergola is available on-line. We offer the Sundance adjustable louvered pergola in several stock colors, as well as several custom colors. Our tectonic arched louvers can span longer than any other louvered roof product on the market. Our patented design makes Sundance the next-generation louvered all-season pergola.
WHAT MAKES OUR LOUVERED PERGOLA UNIQUE?
Louvers: Each louver has a tectonic arch and 6 vertical girders (this allows our louvers to span up to 25% farther than any other louver on the market), all louvers are rotated using a low-friction, stainless steel, ball-bearing system (making our motor able to open more square feet of louvers which will last much longer). Each louver also has two large rain troughs to handle hard rains and a flat bottom side, which provides a beautiful tongue-and-groove appearance when closed.
Gutter: The louvers drain into a much larger capacity gutter than the competition, two patented LED light strip shelves, a standard gutter screen option (only one in the industry), unique crown molding design.
Smart Phone Controller Option: Our louvered pergola has the option of being controlled with a smart device, a hand-held remote which can control up to 16 bays.

HOW IS THE SUNDANCE LOUVERED ROOF DIFFERENT FROM OTHER LOUVERED ROOVES?
- The Sundance louver is stronger than other louvers because it was designed with a “tectonic arch”. Most other louvers have a maximum 12’ span, but ours will span up to 16’.
- The Sundance gutter holds up to 40% more water, is the only one designed to receive standard gutter screens, is the only one to have LED strip light shelves built-in, and is the only one with a crown mold curve design.
- The Sundance louver is the only one made in the USA to have ball bearings at each end of the louver for less friction and longer life without the metal to metal squeaking you get with most other louver systems.
- The Sundance louver has and exclusive rubber gasket to help block out light and seal between the louvers.
- The Sundance post to beam connection is the strongest on the market, designed to attach a large portion of the post directly to the beam.
- The Sundance pivot bar is the only one to connect to the louver using our exclusive pivot bar bearings for minimal friction and much longer mechanism life.
