Fabrication

Most roofing companies don't maintain their own in-house fabrication department. But we do.

By running our own sheet metal division, we can create custom architectural construction products faster, cheaper and of a higher quality than our competitors ever could. Every commercial roof contains sheet metal. Outsourcing metal components is expensive and time consuming. Most roofers pass those burdens on to their customers because they don't have the skill, experience or expertise to do it themselves. Maxwell customers, on the other hand, can schedule work with far less lead time and be secure in the knowledge that the people performing the work are experts in the materials they're using.

No Problems

No Middlemen, No Vendors, No Contractors, No Problems

Light-gauge industrial sheet metal — which is Maxwell’s area of expertise — is more efficient than materials like wood or fiber-reinforced composite. Sheet metal is the most structurally sound and cost effective material for everything from gutters and drain boxes to cornices and trim, as well as for secondary components like wall panels. Maxwell doesn’t install architectural metal that someone else built. Maxwell acts as a full partner from the beginning of a project to the end.

Since we understand construction, we help our customers design their projects. We take field measurements, analyze how the pieces will interact with other building components, make the pieces ourselves and bring them with us to the job. We get involved early with the general contractor and we design metal components to account for building variations. Construction schedules are rigid and time is critical. Maintaining our own low-volume, low-cost fabrication division ensures that deadlines will be met. By removing contractors and outside vendors, we control the timeline and eliminate mistakes and miscommunications, which are inevitable when a designer hands off plans to a fabricator who then hands off the part to a roofer.
