Vergola, the original, energy-efficient, open and close louvre roof system featured on more than 12,000 homes in Sydney and Northern NSW, is celebrating 30 years of business success this year.

Vergola is an extremely popular adjustable roof system for outdoor spaces. Considered the ultimate in outdoor roofing systems, an original Vergola ticks all the boxes in terms of providing shade and airflow in summer, maximising sun and warmth in winter, and automatically closing the louvres in rain with the integrated rain sensor. There’s nothing better than a Vergola louvre roof system if you want control of your outdoor living area.

It’s not just the clever design or the use of top quality materials that makes Vergola a popular brand; customers also love the fact that Vergola is an Australian owned and operated company, providing employment for around 30 staff at its Sydney based manufacturing facility.

“It’s a wonderful feeling knowing that the small one-man-band business I started 30 years ago has provided employment and supported so many families over this period. I’m feeling pretty proud of this,” said Stephen Rust, business founder.

Staff retention is an excellent barometer for a successful business and Vergola (NSW) has the numbers to prove it. At least 40 per cent of their staff have been employed for more than 10 years. Testament to this is the wonderful feedback Vergola receives from its customers:

Anthony, Ryde: “Thank you all for your efforts, addressing all my questions and professionalism from start to finish in the installing of the Vergola at my house. The Vergola has made a massive change in the look and the way we have been using our outside entertaining area.”

Jean, Forest Lodge: “Dear Vergola team, I am writing to thank you for the excellent job done by Vergola on my roof, from the design to the completion. Everything was efficient and effective. All the workers turned up on time, were pleasant, and did their job well. I’d appreciate it if you’d make sure that everyone who worked on my job gets my sincere thanks.”

Jill and Philip, Lindfield: “My husband Philip and I would like to take this opportunity to say how pleased we are with our new Vergola installation. The job went smoothly from start to finish. We would like to compliment your professionalism and also your choice of tradesman. Shannon and Mathew are two very well trained carpenters - they were fantastic not only in their work but also in their manners, their dedication to minimal disruption and their ‘clean-ups’ - two lovely young men who are a credit to your company. Again, many thanks.”
