Transforming Outdoor Spaces: Smartly & Stylishly

Where Your Vision Meets Our Pergola Installation Expertise

We believe every homeowner has a unique vision for their outdoor space. Our journey is to understand that vision, tailor The Smart Pergola® with precision, and turn your dream into a reality.


In 2014, Carmel residents Claudio and Anna Bertolini transformed their outdoor living with the StruXure Adjustable Louvered Roof system, an innovative concept pioneered by former teacher and entrepreneur Scott Selzer. Captivated by the system’s quality and functionality, they upgraded their pergola, coining it “The Smart Pergola®,” a nod to its intelligent design. Their passion for this product and extensive professional background propelled them to become StruXure’s official representatives in Indiana, marking the inception of “The Smart Pergola”® in the state.

More than Just Pergolas – It’s an Experience

At The Smart Pergola®, we don’t just construct pergolas; we create bespoke outdoor sanctuaries where comfort, elegance, and innovative design converge for an unparalleled living experience.







The Smart Pergola has been one of the best investments we have made on our home.
