The seamless integration of three different materials at a single point. Building With Metal (1 of 5)

Quite often we’re confronted with joinery problems which no one really anticipated. In this instance, our job is to blend the aluminium joinery and the wooden paneling with our aluminium cladding.

Because we’re the outside skin of the building, and arguably the only thing the client is going to see, we have to make sure the finish is both sturdy and attractive.

Done right, the result is not even noticed by the project manager or owner as he casts his eye over the job. But done wrong it’ll be an eyesore for decades.

Like almost all of our fabrication jobs, we only get one opportunity to do it right. This is not a job for your average long-run roofer, but requires meticulous planning and precision from an experienced metalworker.
