We are often asked, “Why Revamp Panels? Why not custom?”
To understand why Revamp Panels offers a superior product you need to understand what goes into the alternative. Custom design is often an expensive and time consuming process that starts with hiring a designer. This could be an architect, graphic designer, or an artist who understands Computer-Aided Design (CAD) software. Commissioning a design is typically a costly expense, with rates that can exceed over $100 an hour.

After finding the designer with the perfect balance between cost and creativity, you can begin the design process. This usually requires several design revisions to clearly understand your vision. With larger projects this can easily evolve into a several month long endeavor. All this effort before you can even consider having your design priced for fabrication.
This is where Revamp Panels starts to become an appealing alternative.
Revamp Panels already has the designs completed for you. All you have to do is choose from one of our patterns available in over 50 different sizes. But let’s say that you don’t want any of our patterns. Don’t worry, Revamp Panels can handle custom design.
Designing laser cut panels isn’t just getting your ideas into CAD. It requires an understanding of how different metals react to cutting and heat so that your panels not only look good, but are structurally sound.

After many months, your designs are complete. What now? In order to get your panels manufactured, you need to find a metal fabricating shop that has a laser and is willing to run a small batch. Depending on the material and finish, you may have to visit several manufacturers before fabrication can start. What a headache! Now you can finally start the process of having your panels manufactured. If you had ordered from Revamp Panels you would have already finished your project at a lower cost.
Revamp Panels handles all of your manufacturing and fabrication needs utilizing professionals that intimately understand the product.
