I think with the proper background in measuring and using hand and power tools, installing an Alumawood patio cover should be easy. It may take longer if you’ve never installed one before. But, it’s absolutely not rocket science.
We get this question a lot. Admittedly, I actually own an Alumawood cover just outside of my bedroom. honestly, even with hard rain its really not that noisy. Keep in mind my cover is a lattice which is not a solid roof. And, I know the word “noisy” is somewhat subjective depending on your tolerance for rain hitting a metal material. The only thing that I have heard, was that the noise was “soothing”.
It’s not recommended to run electrical wiring within the aluminum patio cover kit without the use of approved conduit. We always suggest a licensed electrician perform the electrical work on all patio cover kits.
