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

4K Aluminum products are aircraft alloy 6061 T6 & 6063 T6 extruded aluminum. We incorporate gold chromate before powder coating with the best 20-year warranty. This allows the paint to adhere properly for a much longer-lasting product, protected 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? Other suppliers do not have a powder coat finish; therefore, the paint will fade and chip. Other suppliers’ roll-formed lattice tube is so thing at .018 (not .024) thickness that it cannot span out 5ft without any support. Therefore, you see support beams every 12” to 24”.  Not only that, roll-formed rafters and beams are very thin, most times they need to insert wood to provide the strength to support architectural designs. Roll-formed posts are made of material that is .048 thickness and required an insert for support.  Roll-formed products are not very sturdy and can be easily deformed like the type of rain gutter material on one’s home.
