Motorized pergolas are transforming outdoor living, putting them center stage in homes nationwide. Though most are similar in appearance, many fall short of their claims of providing cutting-edge, high-end patio shelter. However, Renson and StruXure pergolas deliver, offering a true luxury pergola design. How do Renson louvered roof pergolas compare to StruXure pergolas? In this installment, we’ll examine key differences between these top pergola brands.

Common Benefits of Renson & StruXure Adjustable Pergolas

StruXure’s Pivot 6 and Pivot 6 Slide and Renson’s competing Camargue and Camargue Skye model lines feature a louvered roof design that delivers sun, shade, ventilation, and shelter from rain and snow on demand. Both manufacturers provide freestanding pergolas and lean-to pergolas made to your unique sizing and specifications, from small single-zone louvered pergola systems to expansive multi-unit designs. All models feature a powder-coated aluminum design and integrated gutter system for drip-free precipitation protection and are built to withstand high winds and heavy snow loads with louvers closed. Integrated pergola accessories, including lighting, speakers, outlets, infrared heaters, and motorized curtains and screens, ensure year-round functionality. However, customization differences and product warranties set these pergola brands apart.

Differences Between Renson and StruXure Louvered Roof Systems At-a-Glance


  • Renson – Headquartered in Belgium with a production site in Texas and a showroom in New York, Renson specializes in developing comfortable, healthy, energy-efficient indoor/outdoor spaces. Their pergolas are sold and installed through an approved US dealer network.
  • StruXure – StruXure brought cutting-edge louvered pergolas to the US market in 2009. The popularity of its unique, louvered roof systems propelled it onto the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing private companies for seven straight years. In 2022, StruXure was acquired by Chicago-based AZEK Company Inc., a leading provider of American-designed and produced, low-maintenance, environmentally sustainable outdoor living products, giving it new opportunities to remain at the forefront of bioclimatic pergola technology.

Customization centers on side panels, including fixed walls, manually operated louvered walls, louvered sliding doors, and glass sliding panels and louvers.

Which is Better – Renson Pergolas or StruXure Motorized Pergolas?

Both StruXure and Renson systems offer superior performance compared to a pergola with a fixed roof. However, StruXure pergolas give you more, including design customization opportunities to perfectly complement your home’s architecture or landscape design scheme. Our adjustable pergolas also provide a wider span of louver rotation, up to 170 degrees, giving you more control over your outdoor environment. Solar and electric power options, including compatibility with popular home automation and voice-command technology, make operating your home pergola a breeze. Unlike Renson, StruXure pergolas also offer optional snow/freeze sensors to prevent damage in freezing weather. Most importantly, StruXure backs every pergola purchase with a longer, fully transferable warranty to future homeowners, ensuring lasting use and value.
