Architectural Sheet Metals
Zinc and Copper Systems
The use of Zinc and Copper as roofing and wall materials dates back centuries, and you can expect that type of historic wear from a roof or wall cladding made from one of these classic, beautiful materials. Both materials are strong and corrosive resistant, and require the knowledge of a skilled tradesman for installation. Berwald has installed a wide variety of architectural and ornamental metals, including a restoration of the copper roof on the Basilica of St. Mary in Minneapolis, a 100-year old church, as well as the restoration of the MN State Capitol.
Berwald has the capabilities to fabricate and install your metal column covers to complement your building design. No matter the shape or size we can provide a quality cover that will accent any building exterior or interior. Column covers can be constructed from aluminum composite or aluminum plate material, horizontal and vertical joints have numerous esthetic appearance options, allowing us to work with any design you desire.
The new range of louvers have been designed to provide simple and economical solutions to ventilation problems while offering excellent water rejection characteristics for more exposed/higher requirement areas. Berwald will install louvers according to your specifications.
Screen walls are commonly used to hide unsightly but necessary equipment atop large buildings. The additional structural loading on rooftops is minimal and most screen walls are set back from the edge of the roof so that the base is not visible from grade.
NRCA ANSI/SPRI ES-1 Approved
Berwald is an approved NRCA ANSI/SPRI ES-1 fabricator and installer for all roof edge metal flashings (gravel stop, fascia, and copings). In 2003 The International Building Code (IBC) added a requirement for edge metal flashings, except gutters, for low-slope membrane roof systems to be designed according to ANSI/SPRI ES-1, “Wind Design Guide for Edge Systems Used with Low Slope Roofing Systems,” to resist buildings’ basic design wind blow-off speed. This is one example how we continually stay abreast with changes in the industry so you can be assured the products and services we provide are only the best.
