Durable All-Aluminum Construction Provides a Lifetime of Maintenance-Free, Worry-Free Enjoyment.

Cardinal Architectural designs and manufactures all our custom metal patio covers, motorized louvers, metal gutters and components from high quality aircraft grade aluminum.

Every element is extruded and electrostatically powder-coated in our own factory, right here in the USA. Your custom louvered patio cover will be designed to meet all local building codes and engineered for hurricane strength winds and heavy snow loads.

Add to that our limited lifetime warranty and you’ll never have to worry about anything, except maybe getting your guests to leave.
