Pros and Cons of Wood Vs. Aluminum Patio Covers
Continuity With The Rest Of Your House? (Wood Yes, Aluminum Not!)
Your Irvine home is built of wood and has exposed wood trim and fascia board. A continuation of same or similar materials and textures throughout your home promotes a balanced uniformity.
Expense? (About The Same.)
A wood patio cover is about 1.5 times the cost of aluminum and especially if it is crafted, waterproofed and painted properly.
Appearance? (No Comparison! Nothing Beets Wood!)
The use of rough sawn wood adds a beautiful woodgrain texture within the painted surface.
We pre-paint all lumber including saw cuts prior to installation, so there's never a wood on wood connection which will cause water to permeate into the wood and cause mold, fungus and dry rot.
