Established in 1925, we have continued the tradition of providing one of the highest quality architectural sheet metal reproduction and preservation services in the custom metal fabrication industry. Not only are we the preferred American supplier for decorative sheet metal fabrication, but we have also had the honour of working on vital historical landmarks and heritage buildings.
We’ve built a reputation over the years for exceeding our clients’ needs with the quality of our work, including step-by-step assessment and review across all facets of a project.
When you bring us in to consult on a project, we’ll perform a thorough onsite inspection, (or review your own findings) allowing us to provide professional recommendations such as whether repair work or complete replacement is required, and to what specifications - as well as advice gleaned from our years of experience.
For example, we can reverse engineer an existing structure’s metalwork to fabricate metal elements in the same manner or bring modern improvements to design, depending on the project’s parameters and requirements including current local building codes.
With over a century of hands-on experience, you can expect us to consider all the angles and be ready with expertise and solutions every time, even if a build throws a curve-ball.
