HomePlus Outdoor Living Systems (Louvre roofs) are manufactured from low maintenance, weather resistant aluminium which offers years of use and visual appeal.

This simple maintenance programme is to preserve the longevity and good looks of the louvre roof and fulfill your warranty requirements.

HomePlus Outdoor Living systems require regular cleaning to overcome the effects of environmental damage such as pollution, ultra violet light and salt deposits. Regular visual inspections and maintenance also help to identify and fix any issues before they become serious. Cleaning should take place every six months in a normal environment and every three months in more harsh environments, such as seaside or industrial areas.

The drop down awnings are not designed to support the load of water pooling on the fabric or excessive windy conditions, ensure the awning is retracted during heavy rain or windy periods to protect it. Any damage caused by these conditions are not covered by the warranty.

ALUMINIUM FRAME: The care and maintenance of the louvre roof structure is outlined below.
1 - Brush off any loose dirt (which can lead to the formation of mildew).
2 - Clean your awning fabric with a mild neutral detergent and a soft cloth, or if necessary use a soft bristle brush.
3 - For localised stains clean with a neutral detergent mixed with lukewarm water (maximum 38C).
4 - Rinse with water. 
If material is regularly exposed to damp conditions, extra cleaning is recommended.

DO leave the drop down awning fabric to dry completely before it is rolled up.
DO remove obvious deposits as they occur.
DO NOT use solvents or harsh detergents on any of the HomePlus outdoor living system.


To comply with warranty requirements and to extend the effective life of anodised/powder coated finishes, very simple maintenance and regular visual inspections should be scheduled and undertaken.

In general, anodised or powder coated aluminium in urban areas should be cleaned every three months and every six months in rural areas. In industrial and marine environments (within 1km of the sea), monthly cold water washing as well as six monthly washes, with warm water & detergent, is necessary. 

1 - Carefully remove any loose deposits with a wet sponge.
2 - Wash down using a soft brush (non abrasive) and a mild household detergent solution to remove dust, salt, dirt and other deposits.
3 - Anodised finishes with greasy deposits or hard to remove grime, should be cleaned with a soft cloth dipped in white spirit, turpentine or kerosene, then wiped with a dry rag.
4 - Rinse off with lots of clean fresh water.

DO remove obvious deposits as they occur.
DO NOT use abrasive steel wool, scrapers, scouring liquids or powders to remove paint splashes - these will damage your anodised/powder coating.
DO NOT use aggressive solvents, thinners, petrol etc, on powder coating as these solvents will attack gloss levels and reduce its life expectancy.
DO NOT let any solvents used on anodised finishes come in contact with any rubber components as they can degrade them.
DO NOT expose your anodised/powder coatings to excessive heat, heaters or hot air guns - these may damage the coating.
