A great architectural design isn't just about attractive windows, entryways, and siding. To be truly spectacular, all of the building's elements must work together. That means paying attention to every part of the building, from the foundation to the roof. While domes and cupolas are dramatic ways to crown a building, architectural finials are an easier and less expensive way to provide a great finishing touch.
Architectural finials can enhance the appeal of most buildings, whether you choose a simple tapered design or a finial incorporating numerous triangles and spheres. The decision to purchase one or more architectural finials to complete the exterior design of your home or building might be an easy one, but choosing a finial manufacturer can be tough.
If you're looking for a company that uses state-of-the-art materials and methods, is recognized worldwide for its products, and provides exemplary customer service, Stromberg is the perfect choice. Our fiberglass reinforced finials represent a revolutionary departure from traditional building materials that are susceptible to a whole host of problems, including corrosion and insect infestation. Lightweight, weather resistant, and versatile, reinforced finials developed by Stromberg will provide you with years of worry and maintenance-free beauty.GFRC (Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete) Finials
When nothing else but the look of real concrete will do, our GFRC finials are the perfect choice. Architectural features made of concrete can be quite stunning, but the heavy weight of concrete is a definite downside. Our GFRC finials are made with real concrete, not imitation materials, so you'll get exactly the look you want. The different is that we reinforce our GFRC finials with fiberglass instead of much heavier materials like steel. This reduces stress on the surrounding structure, and also opens up many more design possibilities. Very large architectural finials made of pre-cast concrete are at risk of cracking under their own weight, but that's not an issue with our GFRC finials.
Our innovative process allows us to produce GFRC finials through the use of molds. That means no slips of the hand, no careless errors, and no guesswork. Your completed GFRC finial will look exactly like the design in the catalogue. A number of striking finishes for our GFRC finials are available. We can replicate the look of limestone and terra cotta, and also offer various stone texture and acid-washed finishes. All of our GFRC finials are also available in a special finish that can be painted with virtually any brand or color.
In addition to being more lightweight than pre-cast concrete, choosing GFRC can also help you avoid many of the problems traditionally associated with concrete. GFRC finials will not swell, rot, or wear away like regular concrete, making this material virtually maintenance free. GFRC finials are also very strong and weather-resistant. Moisture in the form of salt water, snow, and even acid rain will not harm GFRC finials, so they're suitable for even the harshest of climates and conditions. GFRC is low maintenance, versatile, weather-resistant, lightweight, and available in a number of eye-catching finishes - there really is no good reason to choose pre-cast concrete instead.GFRP (Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer) Finials
Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer, often simply known as fiberglass, is a perfect material for architectural finials. Some finials are made from turned wood or carved stone, but fiberglass finials are different. Stromberg uses molds to cast each and every one of its fiberglass finials, which allows us to get the perfect shape and texture every time. For custom GFRP finials, we always make a model first. That way, any desired changes can be requested by our clients before we proceed, ensuring their custom finials are exactly what they want. Molds also allow us to replicate the same design an unlimited number of times.
If you have architectural finials on the roof of your home or building, the last thing you want to do is climb up onto a steep roof to paint your architectural finials or make frequent repairs. With Stromberg's GFRP finials, that won't be an issue. Our GFRP finials are so strong and durable that they will rarely ever need repairs. They can stand up to salt water, acid rain, and moisture - our GFRP products can even be installed under water! If repairs are ever needed, making permanent repairs to GFRP finials is quick and easy, unlike fixing architectural finials made of materials like wood and metal.
GFRP finials can be molded into virtually any shape imaginable. At Stromberg, designs for GFRP finials really are limited only by our client's imagination. We can create virtually any shape or texture, and our GFRP finials are available in a number of colors. You can also request GFRP finials that replicate the look of gold, bronze, and limestone. Stromberg can also match the look and style of existing architectural features on your home or building. Whether you go with one of our stock designs or create a one of a kind finial, you're sure to be delighted with the quality, value, and beauty of our GFRP finials.GFRS (Glass Fiber Reinforced Stone) Finials
The very first architectural finials, which appeared on the walls and towers of medieval castles, were made of stone. By today's standards, this wasn't the most practical choice of material. Carving stone was time consuming, and its heavy weight limited the size and shape of these early architectural finials.
Despite these shortcomings, stone continued to be a favored material over the following centuries. Even today, many people still prefer the natural texture and beauty of cut stone over synthetic and more lightweight materials. With Stromberg's GFRS finials, you can enjoy all of the classic beauty of this timeless material without the associated problems. First, our manufacturing process ensures you will get exactly the architectural finial you want. We've replaced the traditional stoneworker's tools like chisels and hammers with molds, allowing us to get precisely the texture and design we want each and every time.
Because they are reinforced with lightweight fiberglass, GFRS finials weigh just a fraction of those made from cut stone. This means there will be less stress on the surrounding structure, but it also means that more designs are possible. Because the weight of architectural finials is typically not a huge concern, you can go for that larger, more involved design without worrying about whether your roof or cupola will be able to support it.
Our GFRS finials are made with real stone aggregate, not synthetic materials, so no one will be able to tell the difference between our GFRS finials and those made from solid cut stone just by looking. Timeless beauty, endless design possibilities, and less stress on your building are just a few of the many reasons to consider our GFRS finials for your home, resort, or restaurant.Exterior Finials
If you're looking for an exciting and easy way to provide a definitive vertical termination to your home or building, architectural finials are a perfect choice. These decorative architectural features first appeared on castles in the Middle Ages, and are still popular today. They can be found in some of the world's most elegant hospitality locations, historic churches, iconic government buildings, and even on many private homes.Locations for Architectural Finials
Although architectural finials could theoretically be placed anywhere, they will be more attractive in some locations than others. Often, they are designed and installed so that they will represent the uppermost point of a building. Architectural finials, for example, are often placed on top of church spires; they are also often used to crown cupolas, roofs, and gazebos. Architectural finials can also be found on fence posts. Often rounded, these types of architectural finials provide an added decorative touch to otherwise plain posts. Rounded architectural finials are a great way to accent posts surrounding gates or openings.Common Designs: Exterior Architectural Finials
There are many design possibilities when it comes to architectural finials, but some designs are more common than others. The ball and point design is very popular. These types of architectural finials feature a sphere and a thinner portion that is tapered and usually terminates in a fine point. Architectural finials can also be a simple sphere or long spike. Some architectural finials also have numerous projections made to resemble flowers and leaves. More complex designs that incorporate various geometric shapes and textures are also possible.Materials: Exterior Architectural Finials
The material used for architectural finials is extremely important. First, it must obviously be quite strong, as architectural finials are typically somewhat small structures that will be totally unprotected from rain and wind. A material that will be low maintenance is also desirable. Architectural finials are often located in extremely high locations like roofs and on top of spires, so making repairs will not only be inconvenient, but also potentially dangerous. Finally, a lightweight material is always preferable to a heavier one to avoid placing too much stress on the surrounding building.Choosing a Finials Manufacturer
When choosing a finials manufacturer, the most important considerations are whether they can offer sufficient design possibilities and if their materials will stand the test of time. Stromberg is a provider of architectural finials that can offer endless design possibilities. In addition to a number of stock designs, they can also produce custom finials. Feel free to throw tradition out the window and develop an architectural finial that is unlike anything you've ever seen. The materials used by Stromberg for their architectural finials are strong, durable, and lightweight. They've stood up to hurricanes, will never rot, corrode, or rust, and weigh just a fraction of other common materials like metal, concrete, and stone. The beauty and durability of Stromberg's exterior architectural finials makes them a great choice when you're looking for a simple and cost-effective way to add a little oomph to your exterior design.
