Custom 

  1. Does Revamp offer custom patterns?
    Yes, we can work with you at any phase of the design to create custom pattern that fits your project's needs. Revamp can create patterns from design intent, hand sketches, or CAD files. 
  2. How much do custom patterns cost?
    Custom pattern cost consists of two components: design and engineering fees, and pattern cut price. Design and engineering fees vary based on the scope of work, and the amount of design that must be done. Modifying a pattern already in CAD format to meet fabrication and engineering requirements will be less expensive than designing a pattern from hand sketches. Pattern cut price is based off the time required to cut the pattern, and its complexity. The more complex the pattern, the longer it takes to cut and the higher the price. Revamp will ensure that the design of the pattern is optimized to minimize pattern cut time. 

Installation

  1. Does Revamp provide installation?
    Revamp Panels does not provide installation services. However, we can interface with your contractor to ensure that Revamp products are installed quickly and correctly.

Panels

  1. How durable is powder coating finish?
    Powder coating is a high-quality finish. It is incredibly durable and is resistant to impact, ultra-violet light, moisture, chemicals and other extreme conditions. Powder coating is available in a wide array of colors and textures, as well as an eco-friendly alternative to other finish methods.
  2. What is PVDF finish?
    PVDF is a chemical resistant and flame resistant thermoplastic fluoropolymer. 70% PVDF resin-based architectural coatings provide exceptional long-lasting performance against extreme weather exposure. These coatings are commonly sold under a variety of brand names including Kynar, Trinar, Duranar, and Fluropon. Select from a wide range of colors, including color match options. Extended manufacturer warranties are available upon request. Meets AAMA 2605 specification. PVDF coatings are only available for aluminum products.
  3. What is corten?
    Corten is a “weathering steel” that produces a rust patina that eliminates the need for painting and protects the steel from additional corrosion.
  4. Are Revamp products eco-friendly?
    Revamp metal panels are inherently green. Powder coating finishes are eco-friendly and do not impact the recyclability of our finished panel. Our products are durable and recyclable offering a sustainable solution to your design needs.
  5. How do I clean Revamp products?
    Our finishes are very durable, but not indestructible. Avoid use of abrasives or harsh chemicals. Typically, a mild solution of soap and water is all that is necessary to properly clean. However! Do Not Clean corten panels as any sort of abrasion or solvent will strip the panel of its weathered finish!
  6. Is there a size limitation to the panels?
    Standard panel sizes are limited to a maximum of 48" x 96", but oversized panels can be cut. Panels larger than 48" x 96" will cost more due to limited material availability.  
  7. What Powder Coat colors are offered and can I get a custom color?

  1. What PVDF colors are offered?
    Revamp can supply the colors offered by most PVDF vendors (AkzoNobel, Sherwin Williams, Valspar, PPG etc.) or color match to a specific sample or color system (pantone, RAL). Color matching is offered at no additional charge and only available for PVDF finishes.
  2. Are metal panels perfectly flat and straight?
    In some cases, no. The production of the sheet metal used for the manufacturing of our panels comes from rolls of Aluminum or Steel. The sheet material retains characteristics of the original rolled form that can create a slight bowed deformation in the finished panels. Revamp Panels has endeavored to remove as much of the bow as possible during manufacturing and is in the process of providing a framed edge option that will further minimizes this effect. Flat panels and larger panels have a more noticeable bow than our other products. Revamp Panels recommends that flat panels only be used for installations that provide multiple attachments on all four sides or will be attached to a frame.
