Screw on your End Caps

Alumawood patio covers are always loosing their end caps. Installers will build the cover and sometimes forget or just not put screws in each end piece. With out the screws in each cap eventually some of them will work their way of each year.  We recommend #8 screws-self tapping but any screw to hold the cap on will work.

Chinese Downspouts

Take a look at this alternative to a standard downspout. When building Alumawood structures you can sometime find it hard to figure out where to bring the water down from the gutter and how.

Extruded Gutter Video

Extruded gutter is an open gutter option for Solid Newport Alumawood patio covers. We replace a Rollformed gutter to make it easier to clean out the gutter. It is better to opt for the Extruded in the beginning if you know you will have a lot of debris on you patio cover. If you are free of trees and other problems that could clog you gutter then the rollform can save you money
