We can fabricate custom cornices
A cornice is a decorative piece of molding that extends beyond a roof. It is horizontally situated and may be interior or exterior. Cornices are most commonly fabricated in materials that can be soldered such as copper, lead coated copper, stainless steel, terne coated stainless steel, zinc & galvaninized metal. However, thay can also be made in weldable materials like aluminum kynar and polyester.
B&B combines tradition with cutting edge expertise and state-of-the-art technology to conceive, design, and fabricate custom cornices to your projects specifications.
B&B Sheet Metal is recognized by the New York State Landmark Conservatory and has been fabricating cornices since 1901. We can manufacture any style cornice — from the simplest style to the most elaborate.
Typically, we bend copper or lead-coated copper materials into curved patterns and then connect attachments. Whether it is replication of an existing styled cornice or fabrication of an original design, our in house shop technicians are well-trained and have years of experience in customizing to your exact specifications.
We can replicate any non-stamped cornice piece. However, if you would rather supply us with a pre-existing stamped part we can attach that as well.
We do not recommend using less expensive materials such as galvanized and stainless steel because they do not ultimately save you money. These materials are more difficult to work with and require extra labor. The only exception would be if there are no attachments and minimal mitering.
We also do not recommend using more expensive materials such as terne coated stainless steel, freedom grey (zinc coated copper) or evergreen because the quality is still the same.
