Architectural Sheet Metal has been utilized for hundreds of years. It is old world craftsmanship that has been handed down from generation to generation by those who have grown up in the industry. Starting with copper and tin roofs in Europe and Asia, the craft has developed through manufacturing innovation to a much higher level of sophistication. Because of its malleability and flexibility in design, people are able to achieve unique looks not possible with other exterior finishes. Designers, architects and the end clients enjoy the results of buildings finished in metal. Combined with rain-screen and building envelope technology, Architectural Sheet Metal finishes are fast becoming state of the art systems combining the best of both old and new technologies for today's construction environment.
