What Is an Aluminum Patio Cover?

Transform Your Patio Into An Outdoor Living Space

Aluminum patio covers are designed to provide shade and coverage from the weather so you can enjoy patio space, rain or shine. Built from sturdy, weather-resistant aluminum, these covers can be free-standing or attached directly to a side of your home. Aluminum patio covers are ideal for South Florida because they don’t rust or rot, and aluminum is a strong material capable of withstanding heavy winds and weather.

Frequently Asked Questions About Aluminum Patio Covers

We’ve heard a lot of questions about patio covers in our more than forty years of building shade products in South Florida. Here are some of the more common things we’re asked by our customers.

Can I Build My Own Aluminum Patio Cover?

Technically yes, if you have the know-how and construction experience. Remember that this project isn’t a one-person job; you will need a team to put it together. It’s also a time-consuming project, so if you’re limited in available hands or don’t have the time, it’s probably best to hire an expert. Time is money, and hiring a professional will save you money in the long haul.

Do Aluminum Patio Covers Need Footings?

Your aluminum patio cover will need footings on the bottom of the columns that aren’t attached to your house. The width of the footings is typically 20 inches round and a minimum of 24 inches deep.

Do Aluminum Patio Covers Rust?

No. Aluminum is immune from the ravages of rust as well as mildew, mold, and insect damage. Being made of aluminum, you can expect your patio cover to last decades without rusting.

How long does it take to install an aluminum patio cover?

An aluminum patio cover is a permanent addition to your home. It is sturdy once installed, and the installation process will only take a day or two at the most. This timeline can be affected by the complexity of your project and how much preparation work is required on-site.

How long does a patio cover last?

A patio roof is very durable! You can expect your patio cover to have a useful life of at least 20 to 30 years, even with very little maintenance. Once it’s fully installed, it will be a part of your home for decades to come.

Is Aluminum Cheaper than Wood for Patio Covers?

In the long run, yes. The initial cost for an aluminum patio cover is comparable to the cost of a wooden one. However, unlike wood, an aluminum patio cover does not require maintenance and isn’t prone to warping. You will save money over the years with an aluminum patio cover that does not need to be painted, treated, or realigned.

Which is Better, Vinyl or Aluminum Patio Covers?

Both of these materials are great, so the better option will be the one that’s best for your needs. An aluminum patio cover is durable, strong, and virtually maintenance-free, just like a vinyl cover. Both can withstand the elements and last for at least a decade. They are comparable in price, so the best choice is one that will suit your style and design needs.
