What is Alumawood?

Alumawood is the original and leading brand name for wood-grained aluminum patio covers. It is embossed, painted, and manufactured to resemble cedar wood. The finished product is a beautiful, long-lasting shade cover requiring minimal maintenance.

Benefits of Alumawood

Alumawood Patio Covers, constructed from high-quality aluminum, offer unmatched durability, ensuring they withstand the test of time.

With embossed wood-grained features, large heavy-duty posts and beams, a finished ceiling, and exterior trim, Alumawood is the ultimate solution for creating stunning and functional outdoor living spaces that mimic traditional wood structures, without the hassle of maintenance. Resistant to fire, termites, cracking, warping, and rot, Alumawood saves you valuable time and money on upkeep.

It surpasses all other materials currently available in the market, making it the perfect choice for DIY aluminum patio covers.

Why is Alumawood better than the rest?

Alumawood provides value to its customers. Amerimax created the wood-grained aluminum patio cover concept in 1983 and has grown Alumawood into an industry-leading household name you trust for quality that has exceeded customer expectations and built a strong reputation for over four decades.

Other manufacturers have attempted to imitate Amerimax and the trusted Alumawood brand, but settling for their imitation products means sacrificing quality. Avoid being deceived by knockoff wood-grain patio covers from Weatherwood, Aluma-Wood, Durawood, Ceda-alum, or Ultrawood. Alumawood is often copied, but there is only one Alumawood.
