If your architectural metal surfaces have become diminished with dullness, scratching, and other signs of wear, the experts at Southern Surface Care can refinish them, dramatically improving the appearance of the finish. Since the early 1900s architectural metal has been an ornamental building material for adding a sense of wealth and success. Architectural metals can be found in many commercial buildings, such as, hotels, banks, universities, and offices, as well as high-end residential properties.

Our highly trained and skilled technicians can achieve impressive results with stainless steel, copper, bronze, and brass. We restore and maintain a variety of finishes, including satin, mirror, oxidized, patina and directional or non-directional texturing. We provide services throughout much of Birmingham AL.

Stainless Steel

Are your stainless steel surfaces in need of refinishing, restoration, and repair? Have they lost the shine they once had? We restore stainless steel to like-new condition for significantly less than the cost of replacement.

  • Elevators
  • Escalators

Copper

Copper is a base metal that can tarnish, oxidize, or corrode with exposure to moisture. Over time, copper develops a natural patina that some people consider appealing and worth preserving. We can clean, maintain, and protect to preserve the natural patina, if desired. More intensive restoration and refinishing processes will remove the natural patina, and give copper a like-new appearance.

Our copper services include:
  • Cleaning
  • Mechanical finishes (non-chemical)
  • Chemical finishes (colored or synthetic patina finishes)
  • Protective coatings, oils, and waxes, including stripping and reapplication
