We offer Alumawood Patio Covers
There’s a few things which drive people to want to live in Los Angeles. Most notably of all reasons is the weather I’m sure. You have to admit, where else in the United States can one snow ski and surf all in the same January day? We sell patio covers in Los Angeles, it’s what we do, and it’s all we do. Actually, to be very specific, we sell Aluminum (Alumawood) patio covers, wood patio covers and decks throughout the greater Los Angeles area including Ventura Counties.
Serving Los Angeles and Ventura Counties
Aluminum has come a long way since the days of old. Today, we can see that this material looks and feels like real genuine wood with its 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. Furthermore, Aluminum patio covers structures don’t need to be painted as they don’t crack, peel warp or rot and that is perfect for this Los Angeles heat.
Termites Hate Aluminum | Patio Covers Aluminum
Aluminum (Alumawood) covered patio products are insect resistant. In other words, unlike wood patio covers, termites hate aluminum pergola covered patios. Choosing aluminum means never again will you have to succumb to the costs associated with the replacement of rafters, shade bars, beams or posts due to termites.
Aluma-sheild® protects Alumawood’s patio covers
Important to realize, is that Alumawood never needs to be painted. How many summer hours have you spent scraping and painting that old tired-out cover? How much money have you spent trying to maintain your 30 year old pergola cover in this Southern California Heat?
Compared to wood patio covers, our aluminum covers 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.
Alumawood is not a Costco or Home Depot Item
Unlike those patio covers from Costco or Home Depot, the patio covers we manufacturer are custom made to your exact specifications. 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, pergola cover or a fully covered roof structure.
Another key point to keep in mind is that these structures are most of all strong, safe and durable all the while providing beautiful Los Angeles shade for you and your guests.
Furthermore, 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 should you require that.

Aluminum Covered Patios can Cost Less Than Wooden Covers
In the event you didn’t read that headline correctly let me repeat this… in most cases depending on the product comparison, Alumawood products are historically much less than the traditional wooden covered patio here in the Los Angeles area.
Surprisingly, aluminum covered patios are in fact less than wood. We offer a FREE Patio Cover Price calculator to help differentiate the costs of patio covers here in Santa Clarita or Los Angeles and beyond.
First of all, there is a huge difference in material costs. Dollar for dollar, wood is much more expensive than Alumawood here in the greater LA area.
Second of all, 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.
Lastly, let’s not forget the attachment. With wood covers, in order to comply with local building codes we MUST always dig footings to install this system. Not with the Alumawood covers, however. Alumawood patio covers must be attached to an existing concrete slab unless of course, engineering requires a footing.
Understand, however, that aluminum patio covers are by no means “cheap’. We install the Alumawood product in homes throughout Los Angeles including areas such as Beverly Hills.
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 then you have to “maintain” the material annually which requires caulking and paint depending on the area. Expect that with wood, you WILL eventually have to replace components if not the entire system because it WILL rot. “To heck you say”?! “Are you saying that wood will in time deteriorate in front of my very eyes”? “Yes, to heck I do say. It will absolutely rot and eventually turn to dust”.
Opposite this catastrophic nightmare, 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. Ready?
- Wash the patio cover.
That is correct. You need only wash the cover just as you would a car, (providing you do wash your car).

Patio Covers Wood
Not only do we provide beautiful aluminum patio covers, we also build beautiful wood patio covers right here in Los Angeles. Wood patio covers are beautiful. Aside from the fact that the wood is much more in the way of maintenance than the Aluminum covers, wood possess a sense of timelessness that aluminum might lack. Wooden patio covers come in an almost infinite number of possible dimensions. Conversely, engineering restrictions are the only things which limit the Alumawood covers.
Los Angeles wood patio covers are available in roofed and lattice or pergola patio covers. The endless possibilities of lumber sizes, types of lumber and colors are all options when considering a wood patio cover.
How do you identify a Pergola cover or lattice patio cover? Easy, it’s the cover without a solid roof. These nifty little items 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 wood 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.
