You're considering a patio cover to define your outdoor space and make it more usable but unsure of the best material choice. JNR Home Improvements would like to help you make an informed decision.
This is how wooden and aluminum patio covers compare in the areas that make the most impact on buying decisions.
Most patio covers main function is to provide shade and define the space. While both wood and aluminum patios or pergola can do this, there are some distinct differences.
When comparing the most common type of basic wooden construction, wood patio covers typically come with a cheaper price tag than aluminum. This is quickly offset however by considering the cost of maintenance in just the first few years of ownership.
Although a high quality aluminum patio can have a higher upfront cost, the idea that it will not require additional maintenance, always look great and have a greater impact on the resale value of your home should be considered.
If you are planning to live in the home for more than a year after the patios construction, aluminum covers are a the clear, long term solution. You will eliminate typical patio maintenance, always have a great looking outdoor living space, have cooler shade, never get a splinter or have to worry about bug infestations.
