Sundance Louvered Roofs

Reasons Why The Sundance Louvered Roof Is Your Best Option
1. Regional Manufacturing: Sundance is the only louvered roof with regional US manufacturing facilities. These facilities stock the product and support local dealers. All other louvered roof manufactures only have one or 2 locations and many of them out of the country so it is hard for customers to get the service they need.

2. Strongest Louver: The Sundance Louvered Roof has the strongest louvers on the market. In some areas of country the louver will span 16’ which is 25% more than most other louvered roofs. Sundance can be rated up to 60psf snow loads and 180mph wind loads.

3. US Manufactured: Most louvered roof companies purchase their louvers, beams, posts and gutters from Europe, Malaysia, Vietnam or other countries around the world. All of the Sundance Louvere Roof extrusions are proudly made and powder coated in the USA.

4. Customers Like Our Flat Ceiling Look: Our flat tongue and groove ceiling look (when louvers are closed) is the best on the market. Most louvered roofs have an unappealing corrugated metal look.


Jim Funk and his team did a fantastic job helping us design and build our deck. He had excellent design concepts, but was also very conscientious about listening to our ideas. He incorporated them when appropriate and offered creative alternatives when necessary.

Jim made the whole process fun and painless, and our deck is a joy to use, and (we think) the most unique and attractive one in our neighborhood.

We are very pleased with the landscaping! We received two bids in addition to Jim’s. Jim’s price was competitive and we chose him because he had the most creative design. The work was done quickly, and we really like the way is looks. We have received compliments from friends and neighbors. Based on our experience, we recommend Outdoor Solutions!

Dear Jim: Just wanted to drop you a note thanking you for the excellent job your company did building our deck. Everything you have done far exceeded our expectations and you have given us more than we were hoping for. Please feel free to use us as a reference any time. Thanks again and good luck to you in all that you do.

Jim, I just wanted to send you a quick note to thank you for designing, constructing and installing our 2 new decks. I know it wasn’t easy going, especially with all the rain we had. You and your team endured to get the job done and the outcome of the project was excellent! The material you used and the craftsmanship were second to none. The experience we had using your company was, to say the least, an absolute pleasure. It was such a delight not having to worry about any details, i.e., permits, laborers and inspectors. In the end, it was comforting to know that when the project was completed there were no surprises. Beth and I are extremely happy with our new decks and we will be enjoying them now and for years to come! If we ever have a need for an outdoor solution, be assured we would use you and your team again. Thank you!

Paul and Beth T., Prior Lake, MN
Dear Jim: We love our front yard. Your ideas and design were perfect for our wooded lot. We bought our house nearly three years ago and have had extensive work done to the interior. As a result, we have worked with many different businesses in the home improvement arena. Without a doubt the experience we had working with you and your staff was top notch! You started and finished the job as planned. You were willing to answer our questions and to get our feedback before, during, and after the project. Furthermore, you acted on what we told you by your willingness to provide additional ideas and to make minor changes as the project progressed. Thank you for the positive experience. We would be more than willing to refer you to family and friends looking for landscaping services.

Dear Jim: Thank you so much for the installation of my deck last summer. It was a large project that required expertise in material selection, city permit requirements, and construction. I especially appreciated the creative suggestions that you made during the planning stage. Your ability to visualize the end product was most helpful. I am very pleased with the deck. It added a most enjoyable living space to my home. In addition, it significantly increased the value of my property. Thank you again and best wishes on all your future endeavors.
