Have you heard of an amazing, innovative product called Alumawood?
Simply put, Alumawood is aluminum that is embossed and painted to resemble wood. By combining the beauty of wood with the strength and durability of aluminum, you are left with an unparalleled product.
Alumawood is primarily manufactured to create beautiful patio covers that are built to last. This patio cover material is among the best available on the market today. Keep reading to find out the top seven benefits of Alumawood, making it a popular choice among Arizona residents.
Unlike wood, Alumawood is non-porous, so water cannot penetrate it. In fact, water won’t harm or wear down Alumawood at all. This makes cleaning a breeze since you can simply hose it off.
Alumawood panels do not leak, and there is no need to worry about water pooling on your cover after a heavy rain storm. Alumawood patio covers are designed with a slope, so water is channeled away from your home, preventing pooling or flooding.
2. Low Maintenance
One of the top benefits of Alumawood is that it is incredibly low-maintenance. We already mentioned how simple it is to clean Alumawood.
But, what about cracking or chipping paint?
The paint used in the manufacturing of Alumawood is a special paint designed to last the lifetime of your cover. This means that you will never need to spend hot hours in the sun stripping and repainting your patio cover.
Also, since Alumawood is a non-organic product, you don’t have to worry about it rotting the way wood might. Alumawood won’t crack, peel, or warp even in the hot Arizona summer sun. As long as you simply spray it off every now and then, your Alumawood pergola or patio cover will continue to look amazing.
3. Rust Resistant
Many people may not realize that although aluminum is a metal, it does not rust. Since aluminum is the main component in Alumawood, you don’t have to worry about your cover rusting over time and leaving unsightly stains on your patio.
The screws or connectors used in an Alumawood structure may be made out of steel. But there’s no need to worry. These steel parts are either galvanized or painted to prevent them from rusting.
4. Bug-Free Zone
While we can’t guarantee that an occasional spider won’t try to make her web on your Alumawood structure, we can guarantee that wood-devouring insects, such as termites, won’t take up residence there.
Since Alumawood isn’t actually wood, you do not need to worry about an infestation of bugs that could destroy an actual wood structure.
5. Good Value
While the upfront cost for an Alumawood patio cover may be more than other types of covers, you need to consider the long-term costs.
For example, if you choose to do a wood patio cover, you will need to strip and restain it multiple times during the lifetime of your cover to protect it from UV and water damage. This work adds additional costs. A low-maintenance patio cover made of Alumawood brings with it a low cost to own for many years.
Alumawood is a durable product that will outlast virtually any other patio cover. Additionally, the manufacturers of Alumawood provide a limited lifetime warranty for their products. So, in the event that a defect or damage occurs during the lifetime of your cover, you will have minimal out-of-pocket costs.
6. Strong and Durable
Alumawood is a strong and durable product. Because of this, when monsoon season hits, you don’t need to worry about your patio cover ending up in the neighbor’s yard after a strong wind storm.
When installed correctly, an Alumawood patio cover can withstand wind speeds up to 115 miles per hour. It is even possible that some models can withstand winds up to 150 miles per hour.
It might be hard to believe that a significantly strong and durable product can also be lightweight. But, such is the case with Alumawood.
Being lightweight makes Alumawood easy to ship, manage, and install. This characteristic also makes it possible to install an Alumawood cover onto your existing concrete patio slab easily.
Additionally, because it is so lightweight, Alumawood can cover longer spans without needing added support beams. This means a bigger outdoor space can easily be achieved without extra poles and posts getting in the way of your open outdoor space.
Being so lightweight means that Alumawood covers can’t bear a lot of additional weight. While you might not be able to hang a porch swing from your Alumawood patio cover, you can still hang decorative lights and plants to give your outdoor space your own personal touch.
As you can see, Alumawood is an ideal choice when it comes to patio covers; combining the benefits of both wood and aluminum while weeding out some of the negative aspects of each material.
If you are looking for a durable, lightweight, beautiful patio cover that can stand the test of time, look no further than Alumawood.
