Aluminum Faux Wood Pergolas and Patio Covers Mission Viejo
Aluminum Faux Wood Patio Covers are
NOT COMPLETELY "MAINTENANCE FREE"!
• It's a MOBILE HOME AWNING!
• Reduces Home Marketability and Value.
• Unsightly Rivets and Seems.
• Looks and Feels like Metal not Wood.
• Easily Dented and Scratched.
• Not "Mantinance Free"
• Oxidizes over time.
• What About Mission Viejo Property Values? Not everyone likes the look and feel of a metal structure in their backyard. A good Mission Viejo realter might advise you not to install an Aluminum Patio Cover or Pergola because it would reduce the market pool of home buyers and therefore reducing your home's value.
Aluminum does need painted eventually so it's not completely "Maintenance Free".
• It will eventually get a chalky unsightly patina, like a car finish without proper attention.
• What's worse is that the chalky patina needs to be completely removed with sand paper before re-painting. If preparation is not done correctly, the new paint will tend to peel.
• Many Mission Viejo homeowners are not happy when they decide to go with this material. A common statement I hear is "It looked good in the brochure but after it was installed, I was very disappointed. It looks and feels cheap."
• To many Mission Viejo homeowners, Aluminum Pergolas and Patio Covers have the ambiance of a gas station roof. I agree, and for that reason we do not work with them.
TO SUM IT UP:
Most Mission Viejo homeowners agree that a well built Wood Pergola or Patio Cover is the best choice by far.
• Real wood can be crafted to last 30 to 40 years with very little maintenance.
• Aluminum reduces property values and marketability.
• Wood Maintains High property values and marketability.
• Wood can cost about 20% more.
• Wood is organic and inspiring.
