About Architectural Fiberglass, Inc. and Fiberglass Domes

Our company was founded when our owner was faced with the dilemma of replacing badly deteriorated and fading aluminum domes on his own religious institution. The aluminum domes leaked water for years causing damage on the inside of the building and the aluminum gold finish deteriorated making the domes unsightly. It was decided to coat the aluminum domes with a waterproofing material in order to eliminate the water infiltration. The aluminum domes still leaked water and caused even more damage to the inside of the building. The aluminum domes were eventually removed and the roof structure below was waterproofed and sealed from the elements. The next dilemma was to come up with the solution as to how to replace the domes that have been removed. Some wanted to go back to aluminum but others did not want to use the same material that had already caused so many problems. Someone mentioned that perhaps fiberglass would work. If a boat can be made with fiberglass, why can’t a dome be manufactured with the same materials. After thorough research of different materials it was determined that fiberglass may be the best suitable material for the aluminum dome replacement. The problem was that there were plenty of fiberglass boat manufacturers in the area but no fiberglass dome manufacturers. When the company was founded, not many other companies had the expertise or wanted to manufacture and erect such massive dome structures. Architectural Fiberglass, Inc. was founded and has since become a leader in decorative fiberglass ornamentation. Throughout the years Architectural Fiberglass, Inc., has manufactured thousands of domes throughout the world.
