Alumawood Patio Covers
Serving Los Angeles and Ventura Counties
Patiocovered in Santa Clarita offers an affordable line of shade structures called Alumawood which offer an alternative to wood while still providing a textured wood grain finish look. For more than 50 years, Amerimax has been an industry leader and have built a solid reputation for reliability, comfort and style.
Alumawood is perfect for those of you who do not have time to deal with maintenance and repair of wood covers. These structures don’t need to be painted as they don’t crack, peel warp or rot. They’re also termite proof, don’t burn and never need painting. The Aluma-Shield paint system with Teflon surface protector reduces corrosion caused by the sun, salt, pollution or the elements. It repels dirt, dust, oil and stains.
The Alumawood patio cover can be provided as an attached or detached structure. Depending on your needs, you can choose from a shade bar type or a covered roof structure. The structures are strong, safe and durable while providing shade for you and your guests.
We design and manufacture all of our aluminum patio covers with the maximum panel spans available under current engineering. Additionally, several column options and pan designs are available to meet your needs.

• Heavy header-beam construction

Electrical options are available with our Alumawood covers. Ceiling fans or recessed lighting can be added as upgrade options.
Alumawood patio covers up to 1/2 the price of a wood patio cover?
Yes, you read that correctly. In most cases, Alumawood products are historically up to half the price of a traditional wood cover.
Why is this?
Well, to start off there is a significant difference in material costs. Dollar for dollar, wood is much more expensive than Alumawood.
Second is labor. Alumawood patio covers in most cases can be installed in just a few days whereas wood covers can and do, take many days to install and finish.
Lets not forget the attachment. With wood covers, in order to comply with local building codes we MUST dig footings to install this system. in contrast, most all Alumawood covers only require that the cover be firmly attached to the existing concrete slab when present.
Alumawood Laguna Lattice Patio Cover
The Alumawood Aluminum Lattice patio structure looks very much like genuine wood. In fact, when compared side by side with wood it’s virtually impossible to separate the Alumawood cover from the wood cover. The best part is the price and “lack” of maintenance with the Aluminum patio cover vs. wood.
With wood, you first of all, pay more form material and you have to “maintain” the material annually which requires caulking and paint. Expect that with wood, you WILL eventually have to replace components if not the entire system because it WILL rot.
Opposite this is Alumawood Aluminum patio covers. Rather than going down a list of maintenance you will NOT be performing, I will make a list of items you WILL be performing.
Washing the patio cover. That is correct. You only need to wash the cover just as you would a car.
Alumawoods Lifetime Warranty
If the patio cover doesn’t have a roof then it is likely covered with shade bars. These nifty pieces of lumber are installed perpendicular to the rafters close together, in order to shade out the sunlight just enough that you can sit comfortably under the cover and not get sun burned. These shade bars come in four sizes, 2×2, 2×3, 3×3 and 4×4 so chances are we have a size that fits your choice of cover. That’s not to say we cant install bigger lumber up there. I mean, so long as the cover can support it… we’ll put logs on top of your cover for you.
