Types of Structures

There are many types of structures available at

Our available structure types include:

  • Lattice
  • Solid
  • Insulated
  • Adjustable
  • AlumaVue
  • Combo
  • Custom
LATTICE             Lattice is not only practical but also beautiful. A lattice patio cover provides shade for your outdoor living space without screening out refreshing breezes.
SOLID                A solid patio roof is your best choice for providing your family and your outdoor furniture with maximum protection against the outdoor elements.
INSULATED                 Best used for 2 story homes where access on top of the roof may be needed for maintenance. Top and bottom of roof look identical. Easy access to cleaning out rain gutters. May be enclosed and conditioned.
ADJUSTABLE           This is our top of the line cover. This cover opens and closes with the touch of a button with the optional motor.
ALUMAVUE                 Offers both benefits of Solid and Lattice roofs. AlumaVue will keep the rain out but will let the sun in. The top polycarbonate panels come in clear, bronze and opaque white.


COMBO                        A combination of any of our cover types. A combo cover offers both benefits of Solid and Lattice roofs in specified areas.
CUSTOM               There are unlimited custom applications with Alumashade material.

The custom option are only limited to your imagination (and our available sizes). We will do an entire blog on examples of custom covers, look for it soon.
