Wood Rot

This is an example of rotted wood behind a wood awning that was attached to the house. Many times, when even small amounts of water migrate into the house the rotted wood can’t be seen from the outside. This rotted wood was hidden behind the ledger of a wood patio cover. Alumashade covers will not rot! Aluminum is a great alternative to wood. All our aluminum structures are made for at least 80% recycled aluminum.
