This article was originally published on July 10, 2017 and updated on October 5, 2023 Are you overlooking the benefits of an adjustable aluminum pergola in favor of a competing patio shelter solution? What you don’t understand about louvered roof pergolas could cost you. Here’s what you need to know.

Aluminum Louvered Pergolas Offer a Greater Return on Investment

Unlike fixed-roof patio shelters like wood pergolas and awnings, motorized pergolas offer versatile weather protection, providing sun, shade, ventilation, and shelter from rain and snow on demand. They offer a comfortable, enjoyable outdoor environment for you and your guests – and protect your furnishings from the ravages of sun, rain, and snow. Integrated lighting, ceiling fans, patio heaters, motorized curtains, and other built-in pergola accessories ensure year-round comfort. Because they provide usable square footage in any weather, they give you more bang for your outdoor living buck.

StruXure Louvered Pergolas Provide Superior Precipitation Protection

With a pergola with an adjustable roof, you’ll never have to worry about weather putting an end to outdoor enjoyment again. The patented louver system of StruXure pergolas provides unmatched performance in rain and snow, featuring a built-in multizone gutter system that channels rain and snow melt away, eliminating drips and puddling. It’s the patio shelter solution of choice for hotels, resorts, restaurants, and country clubs that cannot afford to lose business to bad weather.

StruXure Aluminum Pergolas Eliminate Replacement Costs

Competing pergola systems can’t match StruXure’s design and warranty. Other products try, but they simply do not offer the same strength and durability. Fully extruded powder-coated aluminum provides a high tensile strength that cheaper, roll-formed structures don’t come close to offering. They resist rotting and warping and stand up to hard rain, hail, hurricane-force winds, and heavy snow loads. Made in the USA and backed by an industry-leading transferrable limited lifetime warranty, our adjustable pergolas are built to last a lifetime without requiring replacement, offering an environmentally friendly, easily recyclable outdoor shelter solution.

Motorized Pergolas are Easier to Operate

Instead of repeatedly cranking patio umbrellas or awnings into place, StruXure louvered pergolas offer the ultimate in convenience, giving you multiple operation options:

  • Remote control
  • Somfy MyLink app with pre-set positioning and auto open/close functions
  • Voice control and automation system integration
  • Integrated rain, wind, and freeze sensors for automatic response to changing weather

UL and CE-approved American-made motors are built to withstand harsh marine and poolside environments, requiring zero maintenance.

Aluminum Pergolas Need Minimal Care

Unlike wood patio shelters that require frequent repairs and resealing, StruXure aluminum pergolas need minimal maintenance. Hose off occasionally or wipe down with a damp cloth or sponge. Premium powder coating virtually eliminates maintenance, standing up to saltwater, chlorine, harsh sun, and rain, protecting your pergola from oxidation and corrosion.
