Alumawood Newport patio cover Calculator

Different from Alumawood’s insulated patio cover, this is the non insulated version, Newport. In contrast the insulated patio cover, this cover is more affordable and covers the exact same area. Amazing, I know. Although the insulated patio cover provides a resistance to radiant heat from the underside, the Newport patio cover still provides excellent shading qualities and the same Alumawood warranty.


Same Great shade but cheaper

Compared to the wood patio cover, the Newport patio cover is an excellent way to obtain shade and get out of that Los Angeles County heat for good.
