4K Aluminum vs. Roll-Formed Suppliers Alumawood, Elitewood, Wetherwood

4K Pergola products are extruded aluminum in aircraft alloy 6061 T6 and we have the best primer coat, gold chromate before powder coating with the best 20-year warranty. This allows the paint to adhere properly for a much longer-lasting product against fading and chipping. Did you know that roll-formed material is very thin and must have a wood grain finish and it cannot be a smooth finish? Some Suppliers do not have primer coats; therefore, the paint will fade and chip.  The lattice tube is so thin at .024 thickness that it cannot span out 5ft without any rafters. This is why you see a rafter every 12” to 24”.  Even their rafters and beams are roll-formed and very thin, sometimes they need to insert wood to provide the strength to support any architectural designs.  Their posts are roll-formed material with .048 thickness and required an insert for support.  Since all their products are roll-formed, they are not sturdy and can be easily deformed like the gutter material.
