Custom Alumashade Covers

There are so many possibilities of design with our Alumashade products. This is an Alumawood shade structure supplied by Amerimax Building Products. This cover was built at a park in San Diego County, CA. The developer wanted a semi-circular design to complement the circular planter.

Our crew loves challenges of covers like this and had a great time designing and constructing this project. As with all freestanding structures the Alumashade posts have steel posts inside of them.  The steel posts set are approximately 24″ into large 30″ cubed concrete footings. This cover has 24 posts, (that’s a couple cement trucks of concrete!)  Here is a video about freestanding covers

Whether your project is custom or standard, we here at are happy to help walk you through process from concept to completion.


Features of Alumashade include:

  • Heavy header beam construction
  • Richly textured woodgrain finish
  • Weather resistant paint finish
  • Color-matching fasteners
