"Thank you for your DIY solution for my patio cover. I have enclosed the before and after pictures of our back yard patio area. It looks as good today as it did when we installed it a year and a half ago, Brand New! We now have a rain and sun free place to enjoy our back yard.

Your assistance, recommendations and help on the phone made the installation a snap. Your patio cover has added a beautiful look to our home. We love our patio cover! The only patio cover to consider is Alumawood!"

- Al Marion, Fountain Valley, CA

"Once I retired I decided to buy a solid Alumawood patio cover over the Internet, pick it up and personally install a 44 foot long 8 foot extension attached to the 2x8 fascia.

Working most of my life in an office meant little experience with construction and while I needed some assistance, the planning, permitting and installation process was remarkably smooth. All of the pieces fit and matched up, all were wrapped in plastic and protected, there was an abundance of screws and anchors, and the technical drawings were readily accepted by the permitting agency.

Well this installation went so well and perfectly fit our need that over the next three months I (with some very good assistance) installed another solid Alumawood patio cover 24 feet long with 14 foot extension on the west facing of one of my rental houses, and then another 22 feet with 16 foot extension on my daughters home in the Los Angeles area. In each case we got just the material ordered, more of the anchoring material than needed, and were able to install and attached just as planned."
