Life should be full of \"and\" not \"or.\" You should be able to choose sun and shade. Not choose between sun or shade. That's why louvre roofs are changing the world of outdoor living.\n

They're changing the way we see our backyards and living space potential. They're also changing the way designers and architects are seeing these spaces\n as well.

Get More From Outdoor Living

\n

The adjustable louvre is the best of both worlds, and the best of everything our world has to offer: Sun, breezes, nature sounds.

\n

They are basically stylized adjustable panels that can be tweaked to be wide open, which lets the sunshine in. Or they can be closed to keep the rain\n out or excessive sunlight out if things get too hot.

\n

Amazingly enough, you can also add a ceiling fan to do an amazingly good job of keeping cool when you feel like it.

\n

They really just give you extra living space for your home, which you can change how you see fit. You can open it in good weather or protect yourself\n for not-so-good weather.

\n

They're Easy and Affordable to Install

\n

Despite their high-end look, they are remarkably easy to install, in terms of not requiring a huge material investment. But they still offer a sophisticated\n design that looks like you spent a small fortune.

\n

We also offer an amazing warranty on them. You get:

\n
    \n
  • 10 Year Manufacturer’s Warranty on Louvre Blades
  • \n
  • 7 Year Manufacturer’s Warranty on Motors and other electrical
  • \n
\n

Are They Right For My Yard?

\n

They work in almost any backyard, that's the beauty of them. But they are particularly perfect for people who:

\n
    \n
  • Are building/ renovating their home and want to add an extra living space
  • \n
  • Are tired of their existing yard and want a drastic change at a reasonable price
  • \n
  • Have an open space in their backyard that they're not sure what to do with
  • \n
  • Want to get more out of the nice weather months in their backyard
  • \n
  • Are trying to sell/ flip a home and want to add some \"wow\" to the backyard

  "body": "

Looking for a creative way to add value to your home? A patio is among the top features that buyers look for in a house. This worthwhile investment is\n a great way to make your home more competitive when it comes time to sell. In the meantime, you'll also get to enjoy the benefits of a beautiful patio\n for yourself.\n

The upfront investment in a patio is well worth it in the long run. Why should you add a patio to your house? Let's take a look at the many benefits\n of adding this feature to your home.

\n

1. Serves a Practical Need 

\n

Families want a home that provides them with everything they need. That includes having an outdoor space for parties, gatherings, and even ordinary\n meals outside in the summer.

\n

A patio adds practical value by turning a part of the home into a getaway. Families won't need to trek to the beach or the park for outdoor relaxation\n when there is a patio right at home.

\n

2. Homeowners Want Outdoor Spaces 

\n

It's easy to imagine why outdoor gatherings would be seen as desirable. However, this isn't just conjecture. The numbers actually show that people\n really want patios and places for outdoor recreation at home.

\n

According to the 2017 Annual Adbri Masonry Great Australian Backyard Survey,\n 41% of Australian homeowners want outdoor spaces at home. This trend has been growing in recent years and is sure to continue to take off.

\n

Having outdoor space appeals to so many people because there are so many activities that become available when there's a patio at home. Whether it's\n gardening, relaxation, or another outdoor activity, a patio offers something for everything.

\n

3. Adds Visual Appeal 

\n

Having a patio adds versatility to the number of activities that can be done at home. It also comes with an added visual appeal that's sure to impress\n buyers.

\n

A great deal of sale value is based on visual appeal, and of course, size. A patio adds a versatile extra space to your home that also beautifies it\n immediately.

\n

The perfect patio is easily accessed, private from the eyes of neighbours,\n and attractive to the eye. Some patio furniture and a bit of simple gardening will help potential buyers see themselves using the outdoor space\n for themselves.

\n

4. Saves Money on Utilities 

\n

Budget is always a consideration for homebuyers. A patio that will help reduce the cost of cooling the home in the summer is a sure selling point.

\n

A patio installed in the right part of the home will help the house stay cooler all summer long. Use the positioning of the patio to block direct sunlight,\n so less air conditioning will be needed throughout the season.

\n

Install a Patio in Your Melbourne House Now 

\n

A patio is a small addition to your home that can have a huge payoff.

\n

Whether you're hoping to sell as soon as possible or years down the line, you'll benefit from adding a patio to your Melbourne house.

\n

Enjoy the benefits of recreational space and reduced air conditioning today. When the time comes to sell, your patio will more than pay for itself.

What People Are Saying


Hi Totally Outdoors,
Thank you so much for my beautiful verandah louvre closing roof. It looks amazing. Great job from start to finish. Everyone has been great. I will recommend Totally Outdoors to anyone considering a great outdoor space.

Angela Gangemi

Avondale Heights


Our project has been completed and we are both very very happy, it's just fantastic.
The 2 guys that did the construction, Paul & Shannon were the best!!!! I would love them to get heaps of praise from your company, we initially had some concerns re eve sheets etc, and the method to fix the brackets etc with our unusual roof; in removing not one breakage & replacing not one breakage!!!!! Just fantastic because Paul really was so careful. The garden didn't suffer at all, because care was taken. They were great, I hope they get a huge Xmas bonus, totally deserved. Please pass on our thanks to Cameron too.
If Jay is in the area, or Ross, they would be most welcome to visit to see the finished job, just give me a call. they will be as pleased as we are and very proud.

Betty & David Johnson

Mount Waverley


On behalf of my wife Judy & myself, I write to express our delight with the deck that you built for us. Although the whole process took longer than expected, this was the result of delays with our council and not in any way your fault.
We found you to be efficient & pleasant to deal with at all times & the finished product exceeds our expectations. The team of Mik & Mike who actually built the deck are worthy of the highest commendation, absolute craftsmen, delightful to have around & careful to keep us posted with their schedule. This deck will last years, but should we need another one you would be the first people we would call on.

Thanks to the friendly and professional team at Totally Outdoors for a wonderful new carport. You were consultative, communicative and methodical in your service which made it a pleasure to do business with you.

Lee, Mark, Rick, Gary and Brendan were all fantastic to deal with and we absolutely love our Louvre Roof Verandah. Right from the initial drawing stage (fantastic quality images) to the end completion, Totally Outdoors were totally professional and kept us posted on a day to day basis regarding construction and when it would be completed. Competitive pricing matched with high quality workmanship made the whole process extremely easy. Highly recommend!!

Taylor Family

 


Leigh was our first contact at Totally Outdoors and he was a delight to deal with - the moment he stepped through the door. Following our meeting, he very promptly provided us with professional drawings and a quotation which perfectly matched our requirements. The job is now done and we are really happy! The workmanship by Brendan and Gary is top class. We have had many a projects done previously to compare with, with this being the most successful. The outdoor area is simply wonderful, and the action of the Eclipse Louvre Roof is very nice. The Merbau timber is what we wanted, and the combination of the cream capping just finishes it off in harmony to the rest of the home. Brendon and Gary worked with little interruption to us, and they cleaned up totally at completion. Really impressed! Looking closely at the work, all joins [timber, guttering, capping, etc], just makes us so happy! Bravo to the Totally Outdoor Team; including Mark who managed our project from the start to the finish! Awesome job guys!

Steve & Simone

 


To the Totally Outdoors Team: Thank you for the hassle-free, professional service and great experience from a reputable builder! The building surveyor have reiterated that we got one of the best builder and we were elated and proud to know. The building permit only took 2 weeks. The actual building stage just took weeks. The tradesmen did not leave a single rubbish/mess. Every call made was accommodated, every inquiry answered professionally yet the service was friendly. It was a smooth transaction from start to end. If given the chance to build another home, we will never think twice who to go for. THANK you for the exceptional transformation you have made to our simple home. Can't wait to show it to friends and relatives. Can't wait to recommend you!
