We have been commissioned by many institutional organizations to protect their heritage properties from the effects of time. From Churches and Cathedrals to Government buildings and magnificent private residences we have provided restoration services of roofs, masonry, ornamental metals and structural components of buildings. Our expertise in roofing, steeple, dome and cupola manufacturing makes us the preferred choice in restoration of your building.
We have been working in the restoration industry for over 20 years and have been commissioned to provide historically accurate recreation of many unique buildings throughout the province. Historical restoration work is the accurate recreation of often century old buildings to their original construction methods and standards. The old saying; “They don’t build it like they used to” is an understatement when it comes to finding qualified craftsmen to recreate construction methods that have been obsolete and increasingly rare over the last century. Slate roofing, coppersmithing, gold leaf gilding and ornamental architectural metal work are trades that are becoming rarer as each year passes. Custom Cupola & Steeple Co. Ltd. are experts in these construction methods and can provide restoration services onsite throughout the province of Ontario and recreation of ornamental architectural metal work throughout North America.
Our extensive restoration experience has required us to recreate and rebuild a variety of materials and construction systems to historically accurate standards. We have the capability to provide masonry restoration services in combination with our roofing restoration work.
We have provided complex metal restoration services on a diversity of buildings and metals. Metal restoration is an intricate and methodical process that must be undertaken with patience and understanding of the fundamental characteristics of metallurgy. We can provide historical recreations of metals that are beyond restoration and complete rejuvenation of metals that are deteriorated through time. We have restored crosses, religious icons, signs, bells and other complex metals systems.
We have restored all types of roofing systems including: slate, copper, cedar, shingles, tiles and flat roofs. We can provide historically accurate restoration of many complex roof systems and have experience in sourcing very rare and specialized materials from around the world to ensure the quality recreation of historical structures. We have been commissioned to provide complete new roofing systems to historical buildings that were deteriorated by time. Our expert craftsman have dismantled and reconstructed roofs to understand what works and what is proven to last for centuries. Our restoration capabilities include the ability to recreate custom ornamental architectural metal work.
Custom Cupola has an impeccable reputation as the experts in preserving historical integrity for restoration of churches and century architecture in Ontario market including Toronto, Mississauga, Hamilton, St. Catharines and beyond.
