This is Why Aluminum is the Material of Choice

As a Southern Californian, you like a sunny afternoon, a warm breeze–just the backdrop for entertaining a few friends, while barbecuing. You paid a good price for that nice patio, and you take pride in it.

But the patio cover you choose could cut into your enjoyment. Do you want to relax and shoot the breeze under a rotting wooden cover or lattice that lets in blinding rays? If you go with a vinyl patio cover for the waterproofing, what about the appearance? Why have a sharp patio with high-end furniture, only to cover it with something that looks cheap and out of character from the rest of the area?

When choosing custom patio covers in Los Angeles, wise homeowners go with aluminum. When selecting a patio cover, you’re looking for a few factors:

  • Durability- Wind and rain and even humidity can do a number on wood and other materials. Also, some materials naturally age, and don’t hold up well to family wear and tear.
  • Ease of installation- Aluminum is one of the easiest materials to install and to work with.
  • Price- While aluminum isn’t one of the least expensive materials, you get what you pay for, and we’ll show how it’s worth it.
  • Quality of material- With aluminum, you’re getting a light but sturdy material whose quality you can be sure of.

So, let’s take a deeper dive into the aluminum advantage for your Los Angeles patio cover.

Why Homeowners Prefer Aluminum vs Other Low Quality Materials

Patio warehouse has a deep commitment to aluminum patio covers. It’s not a coincidence, and it’s not the easiest way: it’s quality. Aluminum is the only material that meets our standards for durability, quality, looks, and affordability. Aluminum patio covers are popular in Los Angles for some very good reasons. In fact, let’s compare the material head-to-head with other kinds of patio covers.


Alternative #1

Alumawood Material

Alumawood patio covers are very durable and are used for people looking for something low maintenance. One common variety is the Alumawood Laguna Lattice Patio Cover, which runs in the neighborhood of $1,300, not counting installation.

There’s no doubt that alumawood has its advantages. But in some homeowners associations don’t allow this material, so be sure to do your research if choosing Alumawood. It’s also very susceptible to buckling, which makes the high price a bit of an issue.

Aluminum is far less expensive and still provides great durability, plus plenty of customization.


Alternative #2

Wood Material

While a lot of people like the texture and feel of wood, the general atmosphere it provides, it’s not entirely practical. Two of the main issues with wood is that only select types will work, and all kinds of wood are very hard to install.

However, our Elitewood solid patio covers look like wood with higher quality materials. Naturally, our aluminum patio covers aren’t susceptible to rotting or mold or other water damage.


Alternative #3

Vinyl Material

In Los Angeles, vinyl patio covers are an option, but that’s about all we can say for them. The problem with vinyl patio covers for homeowners is that they just don’t stand up to wind and are magnets for damage. And that’s a problem because these are not materials you can really repair on your own.

Further, vinyl patio covers don’t provide the customization of our Elitewood series of patio covers. 


Alternative #4

Patio Cover Kits

A patio cover kit is a pre-designed patio cover, with the materials already selected and then cut to fit your dimensions.

Some kits are DIY (do-it-yourself), meaning that you order them like you’d order a shelving unit or a stereo system, and the components are shipped to you for assembly.

By contrast, Patio Warehouse works with you to custom design a patio covering with only the highest-quality aluminum materials. We don’t want you to settle for something that isn’t designed for your preferences and your family’s awesome quirks. It’s your patio and your patio covering, not one size fits all.



Your patio will become a pretty big part of your life, and that’s good, because there’s a bit of work to do as the cover finds its new home. Our approach is full-service. We take the headaches from you. That means that once we’ve chosen designs and styles and colors, we go the extra mile of dealing with Homeowners’ Association regulations, permits, everything.

Then, the good part: installation is completed between 2-4 days.
