Aluminum patio covers such as Alumawood are designed to look like wood, with a textured wood-grain finish.

Aluminum patio covers with Teflon coating won’t burn, crack, or be affected by termites. They are also make of recycled aluminum making them environmentally friendly too!
What is the cost of Aluminum vs real wood
The initial cost between wood and aluminum patio covers is very close. Although the real benefit comes in the saving in time, money and energy you save when you won’t have to maintain your Alumawood patio system.
Can I repaint my Alumawood Patio cover if I want to change the color?
Yes, but it is not recommended since it should be done only with careful preparation. The factory finish will last longer then the paint that you will be covering it with. The coating on Alumawood is silicone polyester and paint does not bond very well with this surface unless prepared properly.
