Custom metal fixtures are durable and add a unique element to any space.  With a variety of styles and materials to choose from, we can assist in the design, fabrication, and installation of your custom fixture.


Flashing is a vital component to roofing, bay windows, and basic building envelope that includes window and door heads, window and door pans, trim elements, and, water tables and ledges. Installing properly designed and fabricated flashing during the construction process, or as a retro-installed component, is important to maintaining the integrity of the building envelope from the elements.

Skylights, Snow Guards, and Vents



Snow guards or snow rail systems are a key component to safe guarding against snow and ice damage to the guttering, fascia to which they are attached, and, to the face of the building as well as landscaping below.  More, falling snow and ice avalanching off a roof surface can be a danger to people or pets below. Critical to snow guards, if chosen, is the overall design of the systems - including the style of snow guard, placement footprint and number of snow guards.  Also, the method of retro-fitting snow guards, if done, is critical to their performance with snow loads.


Other types of roofing accessories we provide are a variety of skylights, roof mounted natural air and power vents, ridge venting, weather vanes, chimney flue caps and kits, custom metal chimney crown coverings, cupolas, and more.
