Is It Wood or Is It Aluminum?
Its got cut ends. Its got a textured finish. To the average passer by, its got the visual appeal & characteristics of classic wood. Considering you know our name is a Gulf Coast Aluminum, a good guess would be…. aluminum. And you would be right. We now have the Romano Roof & Patio which looks like wood and gives our customers an alternative to traditional Patio’s and screen rooms.
Besides the fact that you get an awesome looking patio, lets take a look at the advantages of doing these patios out of aluminum, as opposed to wood.
- Termite Resistant. This is rather simple. Termites live in wood. They need wood. Termites cannot live in metal. The Romano Patio is wood.
- Fire Resistant. Wood burns and can be susceptible to catching/spreading fire.
- Warp & Crack Resistant. Ever seen a wood structure in Florida? After a few years of sun and salt, they dry out and become brittle. Pieces of the wood flake awake. The finish weathers. Due to the properties of metal, this doesn’t happen to aluminum.
