Rain or Shine, Our Louvered Pergolas Have You Covered

Nothing can transform and define a space like our louvered pergolas. They provide shade and protection from the elements while also letting in light and fresh air — all on demand. Louvers and screens, as well as features like lighting and fans, are remote controlled, giving you 100% control over your outdoor environment.

Outdoor living has become increasingly desirable and Pergolas by Julie provides the perfect way to share and enjoy your outdoor space, safely and comfortably. Whether you’re entertaining friends, hosting family gatherings, or simply enjoying a glass of wine, our pergolas offer an array of attractive features to enhance the outdoor experience. They can also be customized to suit any environment and can be installed in days — not weeks. Homeowners as well as designers can count on Pergolas by Julie for beautiful, contemporary design and consistent, reliable performance.

Average lead-time for homeowners is 4-6 weeks.



All of our louvered pergolas have the characteristically sleek, timeless design of European engineering with posts that lock together seamlessly without the need for visible screws or caulking. This industry-leading innovation enhances our product’s performance both aesthetically as well as functionally.

The R-BLADE is our most popular and versatile design and can be used in a wide variety of applications: freestanding single module, wall or roof mounted, or coupled with other modules to accommodate nearly any sized patio, any shape (including angles) and configured to cover large areas. Add a privacy wall with tv and you now have a dreamy outdoor entertainment room.

Our pergola solutions come with remote controlled, extra-wide (8-inch) aluminum louvers, weather sensors that automatically close the louvers to protect furnishings, and watertight frame that serve as a hidden drainage system to keep patios dry. Added features such as sun and wind-resistant integrated screens, automatic rain sensors, and custom lighting, sound and heating options, set our pergolas apart as a top performer in the premium shade solutions category. Contact us for more details.



Our R-SHADE incorporates all of the same innovative framing features as our R-BLADE but offers a solid roof and our largest single zone pergola at 22’x10″ x 22’x10″ with only four posts.

The roof and frame of the pergola comes in three standard colors, custom colors and wood grain options. Lighting can be easily operated using a remote control or with our on/off dawn to dusk photocell sensor.

The R-SHADE pergolas can be mounted to a structure, roof mounted or used for stand-alone construction. They can also be expanded for larger spaces by connecting several modules together. Features such as sun and wind-resistant screens, fans as well as custom lighting, sound and heating options can be integrated to enhance the functionality of your pergola product. The optional screens are available on all sides to keep the wind and bugs out so you can enjoy a more relaxing environment.

R-SHADE and R-CAR are the same product but R-CAR is designed for luxury carports.

Our sleek R-BREEZE slatted patio roof comes with 5″ wide fixed louvers that can be angled at 55 degrees or vertically depending on the desired amount of sun or shade needed. R-BREEZE is our largest single zone, open-style pergola at 22’x10″ x 22’x10″ with only four posts.

The slatted roof and frame of the pergola comes in three standard colors, custom colors and wood grain options.

Enjoy your R-BREEZE roof with beautiful LED lighting ramps that either attach to the fixed louvers underneath (in random or symmetrical layouts) or at the outer edges of the frame. Recessed dimmable lights can also illuminate underneath the frame perimeter or the accessory beam(s).

For those cooler days or nights, powerful heaters can be added to keep your outdoor living space perfectly cozy and warm. Other optional integrated features include fans, screens, speakers and privacy walls.

The R-BREEZE can be configured as a single or multi zones and coupled along its width or length. R-BREEZE can be freestanding, wall mount or roof mount. Custom cuts can be added to achieve angular shapes or unusual house wrap around designs.

Best of all, the no-gutter design means less maintenance required for leaf and debris removal.

Our K-BANA is a four-time award winning non-powered louvered pergola. This smart solution includes both a built in gutter and a manually operated roof for full control over rain, sunlight and privacy. The same European engineering that goes into all our products is evident the moment you step into a luxury K-BANA. Manufactured in the USA with high-quality grade aluminum, that cannot be found with Chinese or Vietnamese imitations, it’s the perfect structure for a sophisticated backyard or resort.

K-BANA’s light-weight modular solutions come in two sizes 10’x10’x8’H and 12’x12’x8’H for a cozy outdoor room. These sizes can be combined together for larger retreats. Freestanding by the pool or as a comfortable entertainment area, K-BANA can be installed in any backyard- often without the need for a permit or worry about city setbacks- they are under 120 square feet each.

While more than a simple cabana, it is a all-in-one, non-electric structure that can be ordering with a flooring base which then puts it into a furniture category. This is useful when needing to move to other locations or if taking along when buying a new property.

K-BANA is suitable for both residential and commercial settings. Add privacy walls, single-panel or double-panel sliding doors for a unique relaxation experience.

What People are Saying

“We worked with Julie on a complete backyard outdoor room and felt we got a lot of value from her design. She provided a great mix of listening to our wants and adding some amazing ideas where needed. She provided all the professional drawings for our louvered pergola, provided great contractors, and stayed involved throughout the project. We love the results! Thanks Julie.”
– Rachel Ross
“Julie is extremely creative and professional. She shows up on time, ready to work, with everything she needs. She listens well and adapts to fit your style. She is great at explorations and thinking outside the box/sketching things out so you can visualize before committing to a path for your louvered pergola. I felt she provides a great combination of consultation with listening to my needs/wants.”
– Wendy Wilson
“Worked with Julie on the landscaping of my back garden and she is an amazing person to work with. She is friendly and listens and really got my idea of how I wanted to design my back garden.  The louvered pergola has proven to the best used space in the yard- just as she had predicted! She is full of creative ideas, detail oriented and never left me hanging during the whole project from beginning to end. I highly recommend her!”
– Aimee Lysaght
“Julie did an amazing job redesigning our yard by creating a space including a retractable style pergola that is very tailored to our family. Even after her design drawings were complete, she regularly checked on the builders and was readily available for questions and additional suggestions. We could not be happier with how our yard turned out – all from the great vision that Julie had!”
– Lydia Mazzie
“Julie took all that she learned from us as to our goals, and likes and dislikes, and created plans for our front, back, and side yards that included landscaping, hardscape, a louvered pergola, outdoor kitchen, raised beds, and walkways. She worked closely with her recommended landscaping contractors and pergola installers to make sure that our project was executed in accordance with her plans. We are very pleased with how our project turned out under Julie’s leadership and highly recommend her.”
– Diane Hart
“Julie is extremely professional, knowledgeable, and experienced. She uses a very well thought out workflow which greatly helped keep the design project on track. From the start, you get the impression that you’re in good hands. She was able to help us solve some big design challenges around a cantilevered louvered pergola and never ran out of ideas or options in the process. She’s upfront and honest, and endeavors to steer you in the right direction in making the best possible choices for your project.”
– Sean R.
“I am thrilled with how my project turned out. It entailed a complete makeover of my front and back yards. The project included hardscape, outdoor kitchen, louvered multi-zoned roof, firepit, lounge area, lighting, speakers, heaters, and garden. Julie designed everything, I am super happy how the project turned out. Julie was very easy to work with and full of great ideas from the big picture level to the small details. It was a pleasure to work with her and I felt I got real value for my money.”
– Arnie Papp
“After a recent home expansion, our backyard was in shambles and small. Our space was small and our wish list long, but Julie made it happen. Conscientious of our budget, she routinely made recommendations to keep costs down but also highlighted areas where it was worth splurging. Our favorite recommendation was for the metal pergola with moveable louvers – it auto closes in the rain and keeps out afternoon heat so our family room remains comfortable. The structure also has lights and sound which is excellent for dinners and entertaining. Julie walked alongside us in working with 3rd party suppliers (pergola, outdoor kitchen vendors, and landscaping company), so we never felt alone.”
– Cynthia Olavarria
