The Contempo

Decorative Solid Roof Patio Cover with Truss Ends

The Contempo Patio Cover is built especially for homeowners who want it all: strength, durability, style, and affordability. By building on the same framework as our other Patio Covers, the Contempo strikes a balance between the fully framed patio roof such as our Classico line, and the elegant simplicity of the Moderno.

Why You’ll Love the Contempo Patio Cover

The Contempo Patio Cover was designed with one simple goal in mind: to provide your friends and family an architecturally beautiful space to enjoy the great outdoors while keeping the sometimes not-so-great weather at bay.


Aircraft grade powder-coated extruded aluminum can stand the test of time while remaining beautiful and requiring little to no maintenance. High carbon steel and nylon headed fasteners withstand the worst nature can throw at them, and automotive grade nylon covers and caps create a smooth and complete appearance designed to live in the sun.


Baked-on powder coat finishes on all of our extruded aluminum profiles are the very best in durable and maintenance-free coatings that require no more maintenance than a wash now and then.


Designed and engineered for the extremes of Miami-Dade county wind zone, Colorado snow loads, and Texas summer sun. You can build a Renaissance Patio anywhere in the country with confidence. Our network of independent installers know the local codes and will custom design a space to fit the local weather and building code requirements.


You dream of a place to retreat from the world, and we want to make that dream come true. All Renaissance Patios are designed to be built quickly and affordably. This is only possible due to smart design and efficient manufacturing. The use of modern materials means you spend time enjoying your patio, not painting, staining, washing, and maintaining it.

The Contempo Options

Want to further boost the appeal and comfort of your patio space? Well, you’re in luck, as we have plenty of options, from fully enclosed glass walls to create the perfect four-season sunroom, to screen walls, to custom decorative add-ons and accessories.


While most customers opt to attach their Contempo roof to their home as an extension of their living space, you have the option of building a completely freestanding structure. This option allows you to locate a large covered living space anywhere in your yard — overlooking mountains, lakes and gardens, or in a secluded corner of your property.


Nothing spoils your enjoyment of your new outdoor paradise quicker than a swarm of mosquitoes. Thankfully, the Contempo is ideally suited to be screened in with the Dolce Screen System. We can even install Dolce without the framing to give you a single, massive screen panel for a wide-open view. Ask your installer about the Dolce Open View screen wall option.


Any Renaissance solid patio roof structure can be installed with full glass walls beneath, turning your patio into a fully air-conditioned and heated four-season sunroom. Our Lumino Sunroom system can even accommodate highly insulated, vinyl-framed, low-E panes, or if you live in a high-wind zone, high impact glass.

Very impressive! Your materials and quantities were perfect. I walked out with one box of extrusion cut-offs.

Everything was right and nicely packed and protected. 

I’ve been doing this 37 years and can’t remember a better supplier-packaged inventory. Whatever you gentlemen are doing is right.

This is just an extension of my home…It’s just an amazing space and money well spent…

We use the patio every weekend, at least once or twice.

We love our new pergola! The Renaissance team did a great job all the way from design to install. We chose them because the material is beautiful and high end looking. We are thrilled to have some shade in our yard!

Nothing. They are terms that are used interchangeably to describe structures that cover your patio.

First off, a patio cover can look like a pergola and a pergola can also cover your patio. When people refer to a “pergola” our customers typically tell us they are looking for a specific design style.

A pergola will have exposed trusses, curved cuts on the end of the trusses and will include either a shade lattice to partially block the sun or a solid cover to fully block the sun and keep out the rain.

A patio cover always has a solid top, but when it comes to Renaissance can also have the look of a pergola.
