Our quality is in every detail. What to look for in each detail and what to expect from a quality shade structure. You would have never guessed this…
Identification of products are very important and producers do not differentiate between their three qualities making it near impossible to distinguish the difference between the Good, Better, & Best line up. Rest assured all Alumawood TM material products are ink stamped inside each beam for easy identification.
Look closely at the embossed wood grain effect, is it vague or finely detailed?
Can you see the end caps on the beams from a distance?
Does the beams collapse or bow in the middle?
Does the patio structure get dirty and not come clean?
How about noise when it rains?
Press your thumb against the post side plates. Does the post side plate easily bend or collapse?
Brackets are very important, Rolled formed brackets vs. Extruded
Sky rise paint is used on all Alumawood TM patio structures. Siliconized polyester paint is used with Teflon TM surface protection. You will never have to paint your shade structure again. Easy cleaning with a hose to give your shade structure a fresh look yearly.
