Louvered pergolas are quickly becoming the preferred patio shelter solution for home and business owners nationwide. Though they cost more than their fixed-roof ancestors, motorized pergolas offer far higher customer satisfaction rates. These luxury, high-tech pergolas are now available from many manufacturers at various price points. What’s the difference between the pergola companies that offer them, and whose products should you trust? In this installment, we’ll take a deep dive into the origins of popular adjustable pergola manufacturers and how well their warranties stack up against the competition.
Equinox, a longstanding home and commercial pergola manufacturer, is an OmniMax International, Inc brand. They partnered with Strategic Value Partners (SVP Global) in 2020, which has offices in Connecticut, New York, England, and Japan, to support future growth initiatives. Equinox luxury louvered pergolas continue to be made in the US and offered across North America. They feature a non-transferrable 20-year limited warranty on the aluminum structure and pergola louvers and a 3-year limited warranty on electrical and control system components.
Apollo Pergolas boasts “over 25 years in outdoor living and construction industries,” providing residential and commercial pergola roof systems with a sleek, elegant design made in California. Apollo offers a 15-year louvered roof warranty against defects in materials and finish and a 5-year warranty on electrical and operating/drive motor components.
Renson louvered pergolas are made and distributed by a Belgian company with production facilities and a showroom in the US. The company touts its “passion for building healthy spaces.” Renson louvered roof pergola systems feature a modern minimalist design and integrated accessories. They’re covered by a 10-year structure warranty, with the option of a longer 15-year warranty pending the use of a brand-specific maintenance kit and annual registration.
Vergola is a privately owned pergola company that claims ownership to inventing the world’s first opening and closing louvered roof system in 1984. They’re based in Australia with offices in California and export their products worldwide. Vergola developed its pergolas for the harsh Australian climate, featuring a BlueScope Colorbond steel construction, a material favored for roofing in the country. They’re backed by a 2-year warranty on the installed structure and a 5-year motor warranty.
Azenco is a European-based company that opened a Florida-based branch in 2017. They provide residential and commercial pergolas and cabanas made in the US. Their aluminum pergolas offer a 15-year warranty for structural components and powder coating, a 5-year motor warranty, and a 3-year warranty on electronics.
Solara pergolas are manufactured in Phoenix, AZ, and sold through local distributors across the US. They offer a less expensive rolled-form louvered roof and a high-end heavy-duty extruded aluminum one. Solara offers a lifetime warranty on pergola support beams and rafters, a 15-year warranty on motor/manual operating systems, and a 10-year warranty on louvers.
StruXure began when founder Scott Selzer, a teacher with a summer home improvement business, shopped overseas pergola manufacturers in hopes of finding a louvered roof pergola for a client. He didn’t find the quality or design he wanted, so he decided to make his own. His success caused company growth to explode, landing it on the Inc. 5000 List of Fastest Growing Private Companies from 2015-2021. He rebranded the businesses to Arcadia in 2011. In 2018 Arcadia evolved into StruXure Outdoor, then to StruXure in 2020. In 2022, AZEK Company, Inc. acquired the company, offering even more growth and development opportunities.
StruXure continues to lead the industry in automated shade and shelter. We build our pergolas to last a lifetime and look great, featuring an aircraft-grade fully extruded aluminum frame with premium powder coating that withstands hurricane-force winds, hail, heavy snow loads, and harsh marine and poolside environments. Our unsurpassed warranty includes a lifetime warranty on manufacturing you can transfer when you sell your home, a 15-year warranty on support components (posts, beams, louvers, gutters), a 10-year warranty on manual, and a 5-year warranty on power operating systems.
