Installing an Alumawood pergola in a backyard entertainment area is an excellent way for you and your family to enjoy the outdoors. A pergola provides much-needed shade from the heat of the day and protection from dangerous UV rays. And when rain nourishes the valley, you stay dry.
What Is an Alumawood Pergola?
Alumawood® Shade Structures are the registered name for a pergola product produced by Amerimax. As the name suggests, Alumawood is made from the strength and durability of structural grade aluminum. It mimics the look of wood by using a textured grain finish.
The Advantages of an Alumawood Pergola Over a Wood Shade Structure
The lattice roof design of an aluminum cover will protect you from sun exposure by 40-60% while allowing you to enjoy the breeze. You can also install a ceiling fan.
Other benefits of Alumawood over traditional materials include:
- Alumawood won’t peel, rot or warp like its wooden counterpart.
- Termites and other wood damaging pests can’t affect it.
- It never needs painting or sealing.
- Painted with a Teflon additive, Alumawood pergolas withstand the effects of sun, wind, and rain.
- These structures are environmentally friendly because they are manufactured from recycled aluminum.
- Alumawood comes in eight wood tones to perfectly compliment your home.
A Beautiful and Functional Landscaping Feature
An Alumawood pergola creates a focal point in your yard. Coupled with patio seating, it draws guests to it. A small backyard can take advantage of an Alumawood canopy attached to the house. Pool owners can create a dedicated area for drying off or enjoying a drink by installing a pergola near the pool.
Amerimax manufactures Alumawood in a variety of styles, such as the Laguna Lattice (an open cover), the Newport Solid Roof, Maxx Panel Insulated roof, traditional patio cover, and the Amerimax carport.
