Alternating background colour of table rows not copying

I have a table with many lines and it has an alternating colour background on each line to make it easier to read it. For instance, the first row is light blue, the second row is bit darker and it alternates the colours. I have a second table that the first table's values are copied to. It is meant to have alternating colours too but when I copy the rows from the first to the second table, I don't get the alternating colours in the second table. If 10 rows are copied, the 10 rows are inserted into the second table, but all with the same background colour, ie, without the alternating colour background. Could someone look at my code and tell me why this has happened please?

VBA Code:

    Application.ScreenUpdating = False
    Application.EnableEvents = False
    
    Dim desWS As Worksheet, srcWS As Worksheet
        Set srcWS = ThisWorkbook.Sheets("CSS_quote_sheet")
        Set desWS = ThisWorkbook.Sheets("Costing_tool")
    Dim lastRow1 As Long, lastRow2 As Long
    Dim i As Long, x As Long, header As Range
        lastRow1 = srcWS.Range("B" & srcWS.Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
        lastRow2 = desWS.Range("A:A").Find("*", searchorder:=xlByRows, searchdirection:=xlPrevious).Row
        
    With srcWS.Range("A:A,B:B,D:D,H:H")
        If lastRow2 < 5 Then
            lastRow2 = 5
            For i = 1 To .Areas.Count
                x = .Areas(i).Column
                Set header = desWS.Rows(4).Find(.Areas(i).Cells(10), LookIn:=xlValues, lookat:=xlWhole)
                If Not header Is Nothing Then

From the first blank cell below a filtered data set, press Alt+=. Instead of SUM, you will get SUBTOTAL(9,)
