Decorative Sheet Metal Fabrication

Throughout history, ornamental and decorative sheet metal has been a popular way to add interest and appeal to important buildings. From 18th century churches to today’s modern hospitals, schools and government buildings, sheet metal fabrication has become a widely-used method of adding aesthetic appeal to significant structures. Sheet metal ornamentation is durable and beautiful, making it the ideal choice for unique architectural features.

At Heather & Little, our team of artisans has produced an extensive selection of custom decorative sheet metal elements for projects all over North America. Whether you need an original ornament designed and crafted, would like to replicate an existing sheet metal feature from a photograph or have another sheet metal fabrication in mind, we can help. We have created pieces such as:

  • Metal statuary and statue restoration

  • Decorative roof finials

  • Metal urns, balustrades and sheet metal cresting

  • Domes, steeples and cupolas

We can use any number of sheet metal materials for your project, depending on your exact requirements. Our team frequently uses historical sheet metal copper for historic restorations of churches and government facilities, while modern works often make use of stainless steel, aluminum and zinc. Whichever type of decorative sheet metal you select, Heather & Little can create a beautiful sheet metal fabrication that lasts.

If you are searching for a team who can create historically accurate decorative sheet metal elements, look no further than Heather & Little. You can rely on our artisans to handcraft your sheet metal ornaments to the highest standards.
