A few years ago, a friend and his wife had a beautiful covered patio built in their backyard. It started as a small project, but like everything else, it got bigger as time went on. They added furniture, trinkets, and various other design elements, including two store-bought wood ceiling fans. His wife loved them because the blades were shaped like tree leaves.

The problem is that while that patio cover and deck have stood the test of time and have hosted more down-home get-togethers than they can remember, the wood ceiling fans are, well, lookin’ a little under the weather.

Ceiling fans, especially those that go outdoors, SHOULD NOT be made of wood. Having a wood ceiling fan on your outdoor space may add that natural element you’ve been looking for, and it may even look pretty. But it’s not long lasting in any climate.

Over time, wood-based ceiling fans, and even those made from particleboard, will:

  • Warp, fade, and sag
  • Become weather-beaten
  • Suffer from unsightly chips and cracks
  • Become water-logged
  • And overall, they will fall apart

Aluminum windmill ceiling fan blades vs. inferior wood

The last thing anyone wants is to create the perfect exterior design only to have a ceiling fan that not only doesn’t cut it in terms of keeping you cool but also sticks out like a sore thumb. Thankfully, there are popular design trends — including colors and materials — that can put your next ceiling fan in another stratosphere. And nobody does that better than The Original Windmill Ceiling Fan Company. We make sure you find every possible solution for any of your interior requirements, working with you one-on-one to replace that once unassuming fan with a work of art!

That’s exactly what we did for our friends, who have since purchased two brand-new custom handmade windmill ceiling fans from us. They look just like wood — except they’re NOT.

We have an available custom finish that made their blades look like wood even though they are made of aluminum and steel. These blades are both durable and strong and will not cave under the pressure of the outside elements, which can include extreme heatwaves, harsh winters, rain-soaked spring months, and more humidity than any of us care to handle.

Our blades are functional, durable, and, most importantly, beautiful. And the possibilities that come with creating your unique mark are limitless.

Why windmill ceiling fans from our store are far superior to anyone else!

The Windmill Ceiling Fan is unique. It is reminiscent of the old farm-style windmills, incorporating a large diameter and strong blades to create a surprisingly efficient and delightfully inexpensive product. These fans can be silver-colored and galvanized, with a weathered look, powder-coated, oil-rubbed bronze, rustic copper, tarnished tin, and more.

A few more popular design trends, colors, and available materials for windmill ceiling fans include:

  • Rose gold
  • Matte black
  • Teal/turquoise
  • Weathered barn tin
  • Wood replica
