Classic Architectural Styles with Sheet Metal Fabrication

Sheet metal fabrication is an important part of many architectural approaches. We, at Heather & Little Ltd., have been supplying quality architectural sheet metal to the construction industry ever since our founding in 1925. Sheet metal plays an important role in several styles and types of building projects. The architectural sheet metal components we supply include the following:

Cupolas, Domes, and Steeples

Those classic churches and government buildings with their high, intimidating steeples and domes are all clad in sheet metals of many varieties. Heather & Little Ltd. supplies ornamental sheet metal for both the restoration of existing buildings as well as new architectural projects, making use of historically accurate sheet metals such as bronze, Muntz, galvanized steel, stainless steel, zinc, copper, and monel metal to give the domes, steeples, and cupolas that authentic look.

Cornices

Metal roof cornices are a kind of decorative moulding designed to extend past the edge of a roof or cornice band at various levels of the building. They are typically fabricated from copper, lead-coated copper, zinc, stainless steel or galvanized steel. Every cornice is unique, and each individual one is created to fit a variety of architectural styles.

Kalamein Windows and Doors

You must have seen stunning metal-clad windows and doors in any number of places from hotels and storefronts to historic buildings? Using all the kinds of metals that were historically favoured for architectural work, we can not only reproduce existing historic work, but we can also design something completely new and original. Our highly skilled artisans can craft doors and windows in any metal and any architectural style, including neoclassical, art nouveau and modern.

Heather & Little, Ltd. has been operating since 1925 as one of the premier metal fabrication companies in North America. Based in Markham, Ontario, we service clients across the continent who seek out our expert metal fabrication for the finishing touches we provide, whether it is on their restoration projects or new architectural ventures.
