In the architectural world, is critical to find high quality decorative products to add creative elements to the design of the property. There are many materials that can be used to craft these elements, such as precast concrete, GFRC, and wood.
But we want to introduce you to a product that offers far greater benefits than any of those materials offer: architectural foam shapes, manufactured here at Patterson Whittaker Architectural Profiles.
About Our Architectural Foam Shapes and Trim
Before we begin, note that these are not the traditional architectural foam shapes that many architects and contractors are used to. These are a type of product that can be used in place of GFRC, GFRG, precast concrete, natural stone, and countless other architectural products.
We create a unique product that uses a reinforced EPS foam core combined with a reinforced cement coating to create an extremely durable, nearly completely weatherproof product that is not only comparable to these other materials – in most cases, it is better:
- It is extremely light weight, allowing you to install it with essentially no mechanical reinforcement.
- It is cost efficient, far less in construction costs in design, shipping, and the manpower required for installation.
- It is more weather resistant and easier to maintain than most other competing products, such as precast.
Patterson Whittaker Architectural Profiles is also able to create architectural foam shapes faster, with shorter lead times, quicker shipping, and the ability to get you the product for your build in much less time. It is also less likely to chip or break than most other precast products. Once you have your products, they can also be finished however you typically finish your products that use other materials.
What to Know About Manufacturing Architectural Foam Products
There are other products called “foam” that are used with stucco to create shapes. That is not what we’re creating here at PW Profiles. These are high end products for a low end cost, used not only in commercial and high end residential buildings, but also in more modest designs while still adding the same luxury or custom appearance.
Let our sales team show you more about how our architectural foam shapes work and what we can do to make sure that you have the products you need for your next construction project. Call us today to learn more, or fill out our online form and we’ll respond as soon as we can.
