Enhance Your Backyard with an Operable Pergola from L.J. Stone, Inc.

If you’re thinking about upgrading your backyard with a new patio addition, don’t pass over L.J. Stone’s operable pergolas. Functioning as both a pergola and a patio cover thanks to adjustable louvers, an operable pergola offers the best of both worlds: complete protection from the sun’s rays when the sun is too bright and partial sunlight when the weather is nice.

When you’re outside enjoying your backyard, sometimes you want to bask in the sun and look at the sky. Other times, you want the protection of a solid roof over your head. L.J. Stone, Inc. is proud to offer electronic operable pergolas that can give you the best of both worlds with the touch of a button. Our operable pergolas have automated movable roof panels so that you can control the amount of sunlight or shade you receive. Simply turning on a motor to open or close the louvered roof allows you to switch from sunlight to shade, or stop somewhere in between, with ease.

Features of Our Operable Pergolas

Our operable pergolas are engineered for perfection. They feature:

  • Rafters – Made from heavy-gauge extruded aluminum, our rafters have corbels capping their ends and are 30 percent heavier to allow for larger spans.
  • Columns & Beams – You’ll be able to choose from three types of columns (Roma, Florentine, and Venetian) and can upgrade them with decorative bases and caps. The beams feature corbels and large spans for clear views.
  • Extruded Louvers – Like the rafters, our louvers feature extruded aluminum and are designed with a return lip to reduce post-rain dripping.
  • Motors – The motor is what makes operating the louvers easy as can be. It’s a “slow motion” actuator that has 500-lb push/pull force. An electrical raceway also hides the power cable, ensuring your operable pergola will have a classic, streamlined look.

A Structure that Adjusts to Your Needs

Unlike traditional pergolas with fixed slatted roofs, L.J. Stone’s louvered pergolas have movable roofs, which means you can control the amount of sunlight or shade you receive. When you want to enjoy sunshine and a vibrant sky, the structure functions as a true pergola. If the sun becomes too intense or a rainstorm hits, turn on a motor to close the pergola completely, forming a solid roof patio cover. Or you can adjust the louvers to any position in between!

The most important feature of an operable pergola is the motor, as you want to open and close the roofing panels as easily as possible. Our slow-motion actuator motors effortlessly open and close the roofing panels using a 500-lb push/pull force. The motor’s power cable is hidden inside an electrical raceway to give the structure a clean, streamlined appearance. And, with extruded louvers that have been designed with a return lip to channel rainwater, there’s no need to worry about post-rain dripping issues.

Our motorized pergolas are constructed from heavy-gauge extruded aluminum, which is much sturdier than roll-formed aluminum, vinyl, or wood. Plus, the powerful finish resists impact, rot, and insect infestation, providing you with a maintenance-free structure you can enjoy for decades.

Would highly recommend LJ Stone!

“Excellent experience from beginning to end! They removed our old bathtub/shower surround and installed a new bathtub/shower with glass door and did a fantastic job. Looks even better than we imagined and has completely updated the look of our bathroom. High quality materials and a very rich look. Everyone was very friendly, professional, informative and kept us updated throughout the installation process. Would highly recommend LJ Stone!”

Sean D.

Great experience!

“LJ Stone came in and replaced our shower/bath with a new shower. The installer came in and to be honest, we hardly new they were here. It only took them a day and a half, and the next day I enjoyed a nice warm shower. What impressed me most was how clean they were in the process. For taking out an old tub, and doing a bit of drywall work there was virtually no cleaning we needed to do behind him. The only way you knew he had been here was the wonderful shower he left behind. Great experience!”

Rob H.

They were here for two days, were right on time, and did a fantastic job! I have always recommended LJ Stone, we had windows, siding, and a new bathroom installed in Greentown, IN by LJ Stone that’s why we keep coming back, great company and you back up your products!”
