Wood Patio Covers Simi ValleyLet’s face it, wood is timeless. Almost like a fine piece of furniture, wood patio covers and decks in Simi Valley can be the piece that brings an entire backyard together. Living in Simi Valley, you’re sure to find that the heat is explosive during the hot summer months.
A wood patio cover is an excellent way to get away from the heat as well as reduce the radiant heat onto your building or home. Furthermore, a wood patio cover can also provide that needed shade you’re sure to enjoy all summer.
Wood is versatile. unlike the wood’s counterpart, Aluminum. Wood is much easier to work with. For instance, with aluminum, the cuts must be very precise to 1/32. On the other hand with wood patio covers, the material is much more forgiving. Cuts in the wood are not nearly as noticeable. In fact, wood is even easily repaired. Compared to aluminum, wood can be modified with filler but aluminum, cannot.
UsabilityMost people don’t think about usability when thinking about a patio cover. Hence the word, you’re sure to find that the more area shaded in your back yard the more useable the yard will therefore become. The more useable it is, the more enjoyment you can get out of the entire backyard. The summer months are long enough as it is. Why not enjoy as much of your real estate as you can muster?
We talked about usability during the day, but what about usability at night as well? That’s right. Wood patio covers and decks in Simi Valley can not only offer much-needed shade in the day, but it offers a place to gather at night.
Everyone has parties and guests, right? A wood patio cover is an excellent place to gather during those hot summer months and in some cases a nice place to hang in the winter. Seriously. Add some heaters or possibly a fireplace and boom… outdoor living in the cool winter months.
DurabilityIs there anything more durable than wood? I think not. Wood is not only timeless and useable but it extremely durable when maintained. When built to last, the patio cover you choose will last. Patiocovered offers a wide range of options when it comes to designing your patio cover.

Speaking of maintenance… wood is not like aluminum at all. In fact, unlike aluminum patio covers never needing maintenance, wood, on the other hand, needs a lot of maintenance and care.

All Los Angeles patio cover contractors are not created equalIt’s no secret that contractors have a history of being tardy, messy, rude, unethical, slow to measure up to their promises and I’m sure I left out a few…
Likewise, I bet even you have a story or at least know of someone here in Los Angeles who’s dealt with a contractor that was difficult to work with. Well, truth be told, we’re not huge fans of contractors ourselves and even as General contractors, we have to deal with some of the same issues that you do.
Well, good news people. We’re nothing like other contractors. Sure…, that easy to say, right? I bet there are a lot of contractors who make this claim, but truly, we are. I think the reason we feel as if we’re a rung higher than most, has mostly to do with empathy.
How so? Well, for starters, we just like you are consumers. Much to many people’s dismay, we actually hire contractors to work on our own home. And, when doing so we have to deal with the same issues as many people do. We too, call at least three companies.
What we focus on, however, is the people themselves. Do they answer the phone every time? Are your questions answered completely and thoroughly? Who are the owners and who are the workers and are the guys clean and friendly? Do they actually care about us, and our home and not just our money?
When I referenced empathy as being our number one attribute, it derives from having the same headaches you might looking for a good company. What we did, was take these experiences and apply them to our own business. Treat the client exactly as we’d like to be treated if we were you. It seems to be working out pretty well so far…
