Our Story

Reshaping the way America thinks about patios

For more than 50 years, Alumawood has been helping homeowners get more value, more space and more enjoyment from their homes. As an industry leader, we’ve built a solid reputation for reliability, comfort and style. Alumawood shade structures, featuring the Aluma-Shield℠ paint system with Teflon® surface protector, take performance and dependability to new heights.

With the embossed surface of an Alumawood shade structure, you’ll enjoy the beauty of a richly textured, woodgrain finish — with a fraction of the maintenance and upkeep. Alumawood is a division of Omnimax International, Inc., a leading international producer of value-added aluminum, steel, vinyl, copper and fiberglass products for original equipment manufacturers, distributors, contractors and home centers worldwide.

Alumawood vs. Wood

The Beauty of Wood Without the Hassle

With the embossed surface of Alumawood, you’ll enjoy the beauty of a richly textured, woodgrain finish — with a fraction of the maintenance and upkeep. Unlike wood, Alumawood won’t crack, peel, warp or rot. Termite-proof, non-combustible and never needs painting.

The Aluma-Shield paint system with Teflon surface protector repels dust, dirt, oil and stains, making it easier than ever to keep your structure looking pristine and new. This premium paint system also greatly reduces corrosion from sun, salt, pollution and the elements. With an Alumawood shade structure, you get the best of both worlds: the beauty of wood and the convenience of a highly durable, low-maintenance aluminum surface.
