How much does it cost for Alumawood patio cover?​

The Alumawood patio cover is an extremely affordable way to get shade. That is, especially when compared to wood patio covers. Gone are the days of painting … repainting and replacing rotted and damaged wood. In other words, you will never need to replace aluminum because its deteriorated by the natural decomposition process or gets eaten by insects.

Granted wood is still a beautiful product but when compared to aluminum however, there are very few visual differences between them.  By and large, the deeply embossed wood grain pattern gives the Alumawood material that real genuine wood appearance.  Essentially, there are three popular patio Alumawood patio covers. With this in mind, lets look at some of the covers offered below.

  • ​We have the Alumawood “Laguna” – Lattice shade bar patio cover
  • There is the Alumawood “Newport” – Non-insulated roofed patio cover 
  • And finally the Alumawood “Insulated” -Insulated roofed patio cover

The fact that the Alumawood has gained such popularity is largely due to its “lack” of necessary mainentnence as previously mentioned.  Let’s face it… here in the blistering heat of Simi Valley and other surrounding areas such as Los Angeles for example, its nice to get out from the heat for a fraction of the cost of wood.

Therefore, for functionality, Alumawood seems to be the first choice.
