They finished the job in a timely manner and it looks amazing! We spend so much more time on the patio now that it is covered. Wish we had done this sooner.

I’m very pleased with the pergola installed by Royal Covers and highly recommend them. The pergola is of high quality, beautifully installed, and adds to the appearance of my home.The crew arrived on time, was professional and personable. They worked diligently to complete the construction, constantly checking to ensure it was level and built correctly. They ensured my yard was completely cleaned up after.If you want to add a pergola to your home, Royal Covers is the company to call!

Rob HWe have a beautiful pergola in our backyard! It is so worth the wait. Raw materials are slow to enter the US and fabrication is dependent on them. Royal Covers had warned us about the delay from order to completion. But also true to their word, they installed our pergola in less than a day and within days of receiving the components from their supplier. All of that is behind us and we are finding out how much we love the pergola and how much it adds to our home. The professionals at Royal Covers made is all possible. Let them show you what's possible.

We had Royal Covers of Arizona install a pergola on the front of our home. The salesman, Larry See met with us, provided the information we needed along with photos of pergolas. When we approved Royal Covers of AZ quoted price, Larry took all the information and also provided and submitted to our HOA all the paperwork necessary for approval. Royal Covers installation was professional, their employees were exemplary in working, and cleaning up after the installation was completed several hours later. We're very pleased with the whole process and the pergola looks amazing!

We had an excellent experience with Royal Covers to install and update a barn patio on our property. Not only was the result beautiful and perfect for hosting outdoor BBQs and getting some relief from the heat, but the building process went so smoothly. They were able to work around our flood irrigation schedule, were in and out in two days, completely renovated and update the patio, cleaned and cleared everything as they went, and left the work site so clean it was like they were never there. Was a completely smooth and easy process from beginning to end. Can’t recommend their professionalism and great product enough!

The auto-retractable awning is super cool. I love the solar powered automation and the phone app features. The installation is solid. I would recommend this to anyone. The cost for the product and professional install was totally worth it. I am pretty handy, but there is no way I could have done this good a job myself.

From sales to install all went well and the cost was well below a similar structure we had installed a few years ago by another company. The install crew made quick work of the install despite some fairly detailed cuts that had to be made. Although the pergola is aluminum, it looks very much like wood and is sturdy. We would highly recommend Pete, Preston and team at Royal Covers.

Great from start to finish. Larry came out and educated us on how things work. He was able to listen to our wants and needs and draw something up right there on the spot. After that Preston and his awesome crew came out and in two days took Larry’s artwork and turned it into our dream patio cover! Very professional and respectful of our space. Great communication from start to finish. I would highly recommend having them out for a quote!

Both great people persons and such a great representation of your Royal Covers business. Of the three companies I got quotes from, your sales rep. Bill was very professional and also a great estimator. I had 4 pretty significant concerns dealing specifically with the installation and your Bill was the only one willing to address my concerns. It was Bill, Angie, Eddie and Nate that absolutely made me happy I went with Royal Covers

From the initial quote with Larry, to the design, to the construction with Waylon everything was professional and high quality. A job that normally takes a 1.5 days got knocked out in one thanks to their hard work and dedication. They were also the most competitive on price of all the quotes I got. Our new solid patio cover looks amazing!

Everything installed perfectly and it looks fantastic. I would definitely recommend this company for your patio needs.

Royal Covers did an exceptional job from helping me with the design that best fit my budget and my yard as well as installation and cleanup. I was completely overwhelmed by how exceptional the finished product turned out.....well beyond my expectations. Larry was the rep that came out to discuss the company, the product and to talk with me about what I wanted and needed. Preston and his crew performed the installation so well that, upon completion, my backyard was practically magazine cover-worthy. I am extremely pleased with Royal Covers and will recommend them to my friends.

After reading up on reviews for companies installing pergolas, I saw who had the best reviews and took the plunge and called Royal Covers. If I knew how cost effective and professional they were, I would have done this years ago. From the very start, every person involved was top notch. Lee provided a thorough/cost effective estimate that they stuck too (as well as providing some design ideas), and Eddie was the most thorough installer/technician I have seen in a while (almost OCD thorough, which is a good thing). Even their electrician was a perfectionist, and took the extra time to do things right even after I had some better ideas (aka changes) for power routing. They were on time, cleaned up at the end of every day, and cleaned up after the project as if they were never there. I'm calling them again this winter for a trellis over my outside bar. Thanks guys!!

I just had my patio cover built by Royal Covers and am convinced this was one of the best investments in my house. At first I tried to do a wood patio cover and looked for different type of companies and contractors to do the work: It is unbelievable the lack of professionalism and experience that you encounter out there, I just could not trust any other contractor. Royal Covers staff are all very professional and knowledgeable and have great customer service: they had an answer to everyone of my needs. They proceesed the HOA permit for me and got approval in less than a week. They also processed the permit with the city of Gilbert and received almost instant approval. They built a beautiful and elegant patio cover and setup the electric and installed the fan: all the work I needed for a very reasonable price!

Best in the business. These guys did an amazing job for me. They tackled a damaged pergola at my Dad's place that nobody else wanted to touch. They took down the old pile of junk and put a brand new, gorgeous one in its place. Then they built one for me at my place. From beginning to end, I found them professional, highly skilled, and a pleasure to work with. I'm going to call them for a third pergola at the end of the season. Quality work and some of the best contractors/workers I've ever hired. Thanks, Larry, Steve, Daniel, and Dustin.

I am a older widow living alone. The number one concern for all those single lady living alone is finding good contractors that will get a job done with good customer service and reasonable price. The finished project looks very attractive and high end. I have friends asking who built the trellis/pergola when they see my new project completed in my house. The service from initial quote to installation is excellent. They are kind, friendly and trustworthy. when dealing with Royal Covers I feel safe and know that I will get reliable and quality service and product.

Just wanted to write a quick note to just say how happy and appreciative I am of the work that was done at my place by Royal Covers. Chance and Gabe were amazing, professional, and excellent in their installation. Plus they were just good people!Corey, the electrician, exceeded my expectations in spades. I told him that I typically have a low bar for contractors so that I dont get disappointed. But if I were to use a high bar as a standard for Corey, he surpassed even my high bar. His attention to detail was equal to mine if not even better. He is truly a expert in his field, takes his work seriously, and takes pride in what he delivers; you just dont find that much anymore. He gets major high praises from me.Larry See was the rep I met with initially. Larry, I couldn’t be happier. Thanks to the entire Royal Covers team.Donald

Third time Royal Covers has worked for us. Deck and laundry room, sun shades and a redo of the car port and skirting after the hail stormIn October. They show up and professionally do their work, only took 4 hours to do the redo on the cover and skirt. When they are finished the job site is clean and I’ve never had to call them back to finish or correct substandard work!Will use Royal Covers Again, but hopefully not for hail damage!!Mike

Though I was not there during the installation, the guys were very patient with explaining to my wife the proper care, warranty and helpful suggestions pertaining to our pergola. The end result was awesome! And of all the contractors we had give us quotes, Royal Covers is the only one that stated there had to be a structural beam at 16' or it would sag. Ours built was a 22x22. They cleaned up all of their mess and I was very impressed! Highly suggest them if you are in the market for Alumawood!!

What a fantastic experience from the 1st consult to the install! I first met with Peter he measured the area and helped me to choose the best color along with other options. He is very familiar with the product and was able to give me an exact estimate on the spot. It was more affordable than I thought it would be. From there I was advised they were 5 to 6 weeks out as far as when install could be performed. Thankfully they were able to squeeze me in a little sooner which was awesome! Gabe the installer was very upbeat, knowledgeable and polite. He had it finished within the day! (Even with the dog helping) 🙂 I absolutely LOVE the way it turned out! What a difference it made! Thank you Royal Covers of Arizona team!

First let it be known, I am a business owner and contractor in the security industry. So when I have a large contracting job to be completed on my own house? I am extremely picky. I expect the contracted promise to match the finished product. I expect the details to be covered. I expect professionalism. I was lucky enough to meet the gracious CEO at Royal Covers, who arrived with my designer, I interviewed 4 other companies. This company was THE MOST professional. They brought samples, they brought their laptop. They laid out the project and quoted me on the spot. No waiting a week for a quote. Throughout the process and days afterward, the company did not tire to answer my questions. Upon installation: a bright-eyed, professional, and polite team did a good job on my large 52 x13foot Alumawood patio roof project. The company stood behind their product when they had to come back to fix flashing. Just went through 2 days of rain....and no leaks. Very glad.

From the get-go this process has been impressively handled. The salesman, Peter, was a pleasure to work with, suggesting ways to keep the cost reasonable by using some of the existing structures. The scheduling and follow-up were timely and worked around our personal timing preferences. The two men who came to the house to install, Daniel and Gabriel, were friendly, punctual, and very accommodating. They did a beautiful job, cleaned up several times each day, and seemed to take a great deal of pride in their work. I could not have been more delighted with the process or the outcome

This company was excellent to work with! I received 2 other bids from other companies and they did not compare. Their fees were higher, they took much longer to respond to me and their systems/technology seemed dated. I really like how Pete was able to draw up a few 3D designs on his laptop and give me exact dimensions and costs on the spot. Didn't feel pressure or rushed at all throughout. Finished product looks excellent!

WHAT IS ALUMAWOOD?

Alumawood is basically what it sounds like. It is two materials meshed together to bring out the best of both worlds. Wood has an amazing look and feel to it but is prone to rotting. Aluminum can be a bit dull to look at yet is strong and durable. Alumawood combines aluminum and wood together to bring you the best alumawood patio covers material you can find on the market right now. You have the beautiful look of wood without the vulnerabilities to things like sun damage, water damage, termites, or wood rot. With Alumawood, you can prevent your pergola or patio cover from peeling, painting, or having to replace some or all of your structure.

WHY SHOULD I HAVE A PROFESSIONAL INSTALLER?

If you’re like most folks we chat with on a day to day basis, you’re probably busy doing other things in life. In order for your new patio cover system to reach if full length of life, it is critical that the installation process is a success from day one. Designing and building a perfect project needs to be complete down to the last piece. Without the correct lattice patio cover installation, you may end up seeing weaknesses in your setup much sooner than expected. Most customers tell us that it makes more sense to pay a really well-rounded, qualified lattice patio cover installer upfront to make sure the job is done correctly from day one. This ensures that you won’t need to shell out more money down the road or even worse, completely replace the entire system due to a poor initial installation.

ALUMAWOOD PATIO COVERS IN PHOENIX

Our main office is in Mesa, Arizona but we serve customers throughout the Phoenix metro area including Gilbert, San Tan Valley, Chandler, Tempe, Scottsdale, Glendale, Cave Creek, Peoria and anywhere else in the Valley of the Sun where shade is needed.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Is Alumawood Made Out Of?

Alumawood is made of embossed aluminum with a textured wood grain finish that requires very little maintenance or upkeep.  Unlike wood, Alumawood won’t crack, peel, warp, or rot. It is also termite-proof, won’t burn, and never needs painting.

Alumawood includes an Aluma-Shield paint system with TEFLON for long-term gloss retention.  This surface protection repels dust, dirt, oil, and stains, making it easy to keep your structure looking pristine and new.  There are several paint color options for both open lattice and solid patio cover projects.

Alumawood caps are available in 4 different styles and are made of plastic.

How heavy is the material?

Alumawood components are made of roll form aluminum and individual Alumawood pieces are typically very lightweight.  Some items like 3” x 8” header beams are heavier to provide strength and support while items like 2” x 2” lattice tubes are very lightweight.  Some items can be ordered in various gauges of aluminum to provide additional strength.

Steel inserts can be installed inside some Alumawood components to provide long-lasting durability and strength while adding to the weight of the project as a whole.

Can they be installed as a patio extension?

Yes, Alumawood is often used to extend existing patio covers here in the Phoenix area.  Many new homes include a small covered patio area over the door to the backyard but homeowners typically wish they had a larger covered area.  Alumawood is a great option for extending the home’s existing patio area with either open lattice or solid roof installations. The flexibility of Alumawood allows Royal Covers to create a patio cover extension that meets the goals of the homeowner.

Can they cover longer spaces?

Yes there are many ways to cover longer spaces with Alumawood.  Steel inserts can allow Alumawood to span over longer distances and can allow for installations with minimal or even no posts.

Are the different shapes and colors available?

Yes, Alumawood projects can be designed to custom fit almost any area.  All materials are custom ordered for each project and can be ordered in many different lengths and several different colors.  Royal Covers can design a solution to best use Alumawood to create the entertainment or relaxation space you are looking for.

How much maintenance do they require?

Alumawood shade structures are easy to maintain but not completely maintenance free.  Generally, normal rainfall is sufficient to keep its appearance clean. If cleaning is required, we recommend the following steps.  Particular attention should be given to areas under eaves, porches, awnings, and other overhangs that have limited exposure to the natural cleansing effect of rainfall.

Moderate Dirt

An occasional washing with clear water using a garden hose and soft-bristled brush is recommended (a long-handled, car-washing brush is ideal for this purpose).

Heavier Dirt Accumulation

Wash in the manner indicated below, but use the following solution:

  • ⅓ cup detergent (i.e. Tide)
  • ⅔ cup trisodium phosphate powder (also known as T.S.P.)
  • 1 gallon water

Mildew Accumulation

Although rare in Arizona, mildew can collect on surfaces of all types of building products and is often evident on surfaces that have not been properly maintained.  Normally, mildew will appear as black spots. Mildew is easy to remove by using the following cleaning solution:

  • ⅓ cup detergent (i.e. Tide)
  • ⅔ cup trisodium phosphate powder (also known as T.S.P.)
  • 1 quart sodium hypochloride 5% solution (e.g. Clorox)
  • 3 quarts water

Caulking Components

Use mineral spirits in reasonable amounts, apply directly to foreign substances.  Rinse the area thoroughly with water immediately after cleaning.

How much do they cost?

Alumawood is considered to be comparable to traditional wooden patio cover setups. However, because of their longevity of the aluminum, you typically eliminate the need to replace, paint, or treat anything. Custom alumawood patio covers allow you to both save time and money over the long haul.

Can you install supports?

Supports can be installed to support ceiling fans per specific engineering details, but engineering does not support anything installed on top of or hanging from Alumawood products.

What paint is used for them?

Amerimax (the manufacturer) uses a weather-resistant, anti-corrosive Aluma-Shield paint system with Teflon surface protector. It is the most durable paint system in the aluminum patio cover market. The paint system withstands the harshest conditions, including sun, rain, wind, and extreme temperatures.

Can they be repainted?

While we do not recommend it, you can repaint Alumawood Shade Structures; however, proper preparation is critical. Amerimax recommends consulting a professional paint store for repainting advice. Alumawood Shade Structures are coated with silicone polyester and cured in a paint line oven for a durable finish. Repainting will likely weather and fade quicker than factory paint.

Please know that repainting any part of your Alumawood Shade Structure will void your warranty.

Made with quality materials and attention to detail, Alumawood Shade Structures are one of the best in the aluminum patio cover market.

Each component of an Alumawood Shade Structure is manufactured from structural grade aluminum alloys and finished with our exclusive high performance coating system, Aluma-Shield with Teflon surface protector, which is backed by Amerimax’s Limited – Lifetime Warranty. Each patio cover system is designed to assemble with flawless fit and engineered for building code requirements throughout the United States. Every design and detail has been carefully considered to enhance the aesthetic appeal and the natural wood appearance.

Alumawood Shade Structures that were purchased after February 2004 will have “AMERIMAX ALUMAWOOD” stamped in black ink inside the 2′ x 6′ Rafters and 3′ x 8′ Headers (also known as Header Beams). Once the product is received, take off the end caps of the 2′ x 6′ Rafters or 3′ x 8′ Headers and look inside for the “AMERIMAX ALUMAWOOD” ink stamp.

If you can’t find the “AMERIMAX ALUMAWOOD” ink stamp (can be hard to see inside of the components) you can request verification from your materials provider.

Additional Benefits

Alumawood Shade Structures are constructed of embossed aluminum with a textured wood-grain finish. The structures are built with heavy header beams and a weather-resistant Aluma-Shield paint system with Teflon additive that withstands sun, rain, wind, and extreme temperatures. Alumawood Shade Structure need virtually no maintenance. Unlike real wood, Alumawood Shade Structures won’t burn, crack, peel, warp, rot, or attract termites. Our environmentally friendly Alumawood Shade Structures are made from recycled aluminum.

Alumawood Shade Structures come in two different styles to suit your needs. If you want added shade but prefer partial sun and refreshing breezes, our lattice patio cover is the ideal solution. However, our solid roof patio cover provides you and your outdoor furniture with the best protection against the elements. You’ll be able to enjoy your outdoor living space even when the weather isn’t ideal.
