Pergola, Shade Trellis and Motorized Pergola Patio Covers

Lattice patio pergola.

When you add an extruded aluminum pergola installed by Sun Solutions to your backyard, you’ll be able to make every day a vacation! It’s the perfect solution to provide shade and spruce up a dull backyard, adding style and elegance to your property. Pergolas are partial shade structures and function perfectly over patio furniture and outdoor living spaces. We can install pergolas for:

  • Outdoor Kitchens and Barbeques
  • Outdoor Movie Screens
  • Pool Area Decks
  • Relaxing Hot Tubs
  • Peaceful Shade Gardens

The open lattice created by shade tubes on top of a pergola frame is designed for the perfect amount of shade. Our line of Aria pergolas with shade lattice from Renaissance provide the exact amount of shade to turn your hot, bright patio into a relaxing breezy space to enjoy with family and friends.

Shade, good looks, and appropriate layout are the key factors when choosing how to install your new pergola. If these three key requirements are met, your new pergola with shade lattice will provide a permanent decorative fixture that will shade your patio in just the right way, while transforming your outdoor space into an outdoor living room. A great pergola system will also be maintenance-free, strong enough to last a lifetime, and include the little finishing touches that give the structure a sleek, clean appearance.

Pergola Material Comparison


Plastic & Vinyl

Plastic and vinyl pergolas are a cost-effective option, but are not very strong and can become brittle and crack with temperature changes.


Wooden pergolas look great, they have that natural grain and texture that aluminum can’t quite duplicate. But like all wooden structures, they require a lot of maintenance. They have to be sealed, protected from termites, and painted every year to keep them looking their best. In addition, quality wood decks are usually expensive to build, and using cheap pressure-treated pine makes them look, well, cheap.

Roll-formed Sheet Metal

Roll-formed sheet metal pergolas, such as the “Aluminum Wood” type products that are all over the market are easy and inexpensive to install, but like most things, you get what you pay for. The thin rolled aluminum and embossed wood grain don’t come close to approximating wood grain, and their low-quality paint finish ages quickly, requiring constant repainting and maintenance. They simply are not good investments.

Extruded Aluminum

Extruded aluminum pergolas, such as the ones used in Renaissance Aria, are by far the most modern and lowest-maintenance option. They also offer high-strength construction so they last virtually forever even in tough environments.
