WOOD LATTICE PATIO COVERS
Anytime you consider doing something big to your backyard, consider this... your house or home is a significant investment so whatever you build, has to complement it. Likewise, when considering the need for partial shade, you're mind immediately starts to think about lattice patio covers I'm sure.
Understand that there are many different materials you have at your disposal when considering shade. For example, you can build your patio cover from wood, aluminum (Alumawood), vinyl, and even composite. Of these examples, I'd have to say that wood and aluminum (Alumawood) are by far the most popular choices for lattice patio covers. Of course, you're always welcome to call us for more information, 661-212-1446.
Wood patio cover vs. the Alumawood patio cover
Contrast this with the aluminum (Alumawood) lattice patio cover or pergola. Yes, the aluminum will in fact block the sun just as the wood does, the single difference is it's just aluminum. The installation is the same for the most part. What about the cost?
Is the wood lattice patio cover more expensive than the Alumawood lattice patio cover?
Yes, the wooden lattice patio tends to be more expensive than Alumawood for lattice patio covers. In some cases, the wood patio cover will cost almost double what the Alumawood lattice patio cover will cost. It's not the lattice that's expensive or the fact that it's open. When considering wooden lattice covers one must take into consideration the fact that there is more labor when building these over Alumawood. Don't get me wrong, Alumawood is a solid patio cover, but it's still aluminum.
What type of additional labor? Well, there is painting, footings, hardware, and in many cases, engineering to consider. Your best practice would be to call us for an evaluation of your backyard. We can take a look at your outdoor living desires and try to come up with a few options.
LATTICE PATIO COVERS
Lattice patio covers offer something a little different when compared to a solid patio cover for example. For one, there is obviously no solid roof for shade. It's effectively partially open. Wood Lattice covers have small strips of wood laid perpendicular to the framing members.
One of the many decisions you will want to make when building your wooden lattice patio cover is the size and spacing of these lattice strips. You can design with just about whatever size lumber you want for your home, for example, 2x2, 3x3... unless you choose something much beefy-er for your house.
