GFRC Renovation in Canton, Ohio

St. Peter’s Church GFRC Renovation by Stromberg

GFRC Renovation at St. Paul's Catholic Church, Canton, Ohio

GFRC Renovation at St. Paul’s Catholic Church, Canton, Ohio

Stromberg’s artisans, craftsmen and architects are truly a talented group of individuals, and when it comes to GFRC renovation, they are some of the best in the world. When they heard about how talented Stromberg Architectural is at GFRC renovation and restoration, St. Peter’s Catholic Church in Canton, Ohio, knew that Stromberg would be perfect for renovating their church while sticking to the original design. Stromberg’s mastery of GFRC renovation allows them to restore architecture to its original glory, and the best part is that their renovations are virtually undetectable due to their seamless matching of color and texture.

Undetectable GFRC Renovation by Stromberg Architectural

GFRC is an incredibly versatile material, but in the hands of an expert crew, GFRC can imitate nearly any other building material. St. Peter’s in Canton has a unique appearance due to its gray, chunky stone exterior. This old world-inspired aesthetic can be difficult and expensive to repair since masons who can work in this style are few and far between. However, thanks to the ingenuity of Stromberg Architectural, St. Peter’s was able to get a first rate renovation that perfectly matches the original architecture, making the repairs seem invisible.

GFRC Renovations by Stromberg will Last for Ages

Another admirable quality of Stromberg’s GFRC restoration work is that these are fixes that are meant to last. GFRC is an incredibly sturdy material that can stand up to all kinds of environmental punishment that would beat down and erode lesser materials. GFRC can withstand extreme temperature fluctuations, vicious winds, acidic rain and even kinetic impacts that would destroy other building materials. With Stromberg Architectural, you don’t get a temporary fix, you get a lasting solution.

GFRC Advantages Over Traditional Concrete

  • GFRC elements weigh a fraction of those made with precast
  • The glass fiber reinforcement means there is no metal to rust or corrode
  • A practically endless number of GFRC shapes, textures, and sizes

Iowa GFRC Projects

Iowa Area GFRC Projects

Midwest Area GFRC Projects: D.A. Blodgett Building, Grand Rapids, Michigan

Extravagance, history, and attention to detail are all evident in the various buildings and other architectural creations found in Iowa. The Iowa State Capitol, for instance, features five architectural domes, one of which is covered in shimmering 23-carat gold. The Union Block building was where several historic Civil Rights speeches were made, and the Fountain of Four Seasons sculpture on the Iowa State University campus was obviously painstakingly created.

Using GFRC, Stromberg can achieve a seamless match for many materials so you can make renovations and repairs to Iowa buildings that will be virtually undetectable. We can also craft custom molds to create GFRC sculptures and Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete (GFRC) fountains that are incredibly detailed and highly ornate.

Midwest and Iowa GFRC Projects

Stromberg has a strong track record of successfully completing GFRC projects in many Midwest states, including Ohio. One of our notable GFRC Ohio projects was the work we completed for the Ellsworth Community College in Iowa Falls, Iowa. This small institution of higher learning has just 1,100 students. One thing it has in common with larger schools, however, is that the campus is home to buildings that are both eye-catching and historic.

Other GFRC Midwest clients and commissions include:

  • Wisconsin GFRC: Miller Park, Milwaukee
  • Michigan GFRC: Lexington Lansing Hotel, Lansing
  • Illinois GFRC: Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago
  • Indiana GFRC: AmeriPlex at the Port, Portage

Nebraska GFRC Projects

Nebraska Area GFRC Projects by Stromberg

Midwest Area GFRC Projects: Commerce Bank, Afton, Missouri

Nebraska, which has an economy that relies heavily on agricultural pursuits, does not have the plethora of architectural wonders found in states such as Nevada. The Nebraska State Capitol, however, which was constructed using Indiana limestone, is undeniably a marvel. Reflecting both Classical and Gothic styles, it features an impressive tower that is crowned with a dome and a figurative sculpture.

Stromberg Architectural can use GFRC to replicate the appearance of limestone, and to create architectural domes and intricately-detailed sculptures. We also have a knowledge of the conventions of many architectural styles, including Classical and Gothic. As such, we can use GFRC to create structures that have all the features of iconic buildings. Versatile and lightweight GFRC, however, allows such projects to be completed more quickly, and costs are typically lower as well.

GFRC Nebraska Projects

Stromberg has completed a number of GFRC Nebraska projects, as well as others throughout the rest of the Midwest. Just one of our Nebraska GFRC projects was the work we completed for the Edward Zorinsky Federal Building in Omaha, Nebraska. This 432,000-square-foot structure is the place of employment for more than 1,200 federal workers.

Stromberg’s GFRC products aren’t just suitable for commercial and government structures. Our GFRC Midwest clients and commissions have also included churches, educational institutions, hospitality establishments, hospitals, and retail stores. We can expertly craft GFRC columns, GFRC brackets, GFRC fireplaces, and dozens of other elements that are suitable for both interior and exterior use.

South Dakota GFRC Projects

South Dakota Area GFRC Projects by Stromberg

Midwest Area GFRC Projects: Little Pine Lake, Perham, MN

South Dakota is one of the least populous states in the entire country, but it’s home to one of the most impressive sculptures in the U.S. and perhaps even the world. The work is of course Mount Rushmore. Here, the likenesses of Washington, Jefferson, Roosevelt, and Lincoln are recreated in solid granite.

Like South Dakota’s most well-known landmark, GFRC creations by Stromberg can inspire wonder and turn heads.

North Dakota GFRC Projects

North Dakota GFRC Projects by Stromberg

Midwest Area GFRC Projects: Ameristar Casino, Kansas City, Missouri

The climate of North Dakota, also known as the Peace Garden State and the Roughrider State, poses challenges to landscapers, masons, and designers commissioned to install outdoor elements. Warm summers and cold winters mean that any outdoor elements will be subject to freeze-thaw cycles, springtime flooding is common, and extreme meteorological events such as tornadoes are not unheard of.

There are few materials that are better than Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete (GFRC) for this type of climate. GFRC elements by Stromberg weather well as the temperature changes, and will not corrode or rust, even when placed under water. In both the laboratory and the real world, GFRC sculptures and other GFRC elements by Stromberg have also withstood extremely high winds and other severe weather events.

Midwest Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete Projects

During our nearly three decades in business, we have completed a staggering number of GFRC projects throughout the entire Midwest. Following are just a few of our Midwest GFRC clients and commissions:

  • Little Pine Lake, Perham, Minnesota
  • University of Kansas, Lawrence, Kansas

  • Embassy Suites, Dublin, Ohio
  • Cinemark Theaters, Grandville, Michigan

All of our GFRC options are available to contractors, engineers, and designers in North Dakota. If you are in Medora, Park River, Rogers, South Heart, Zeeland, Willow City, or another part of the state, Stromberg is here to help.

Minnesota GFRC Projects

Minnesota GFRC Projects

Minnesota Area GFRC Projects: Little Pine Lake, Perham, Minnesota

A signature “jewel box” by Louis Sullivan, French Renaissance cathedrals, Art Deco style skyscrapers, Beaux Arts facades, Richardson Romanesque structures, and modern trendy storefronts are just some of the architectural marvels you’ll find in Minnesota. If you’re overseeing a GFRC Minnesota project that involves restoring a National Historic Landmark or designing an exquisite entryway for a five-star hotel, Stromberg’s knowledge of the styles mentioned above and our custom design process can benefit you.

Featured GFRC Minnesota Projects

One of Stromberg’s signature GFRC Minnesota projects was our work on an opulent private residence called Little Pine Lake located in Perham. During this Midwest GFRC project, we created GFRC archways and a GFRC staircase capital to grace the interior of the home. Other elements created by Stromberg included four elegant fireplaces (one framed with twisted columns), a paneled archway, custom balustrade, and sills.

Major Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete Advantages

It’s clear from a GFRC vs. limestone comparison that GFRC (Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete) is the better choice in many situations. Consider the following:

  • The weights of GFRC elements are much lower compared to products made from limestone
  • GFRC is non-porous and suitable for use in high-moisture climates and regions that receive acid rain
  • GFRC is cast in molds, so fine details and textures can be created and/or flawlessly reproduced
  • GFRC shipping costs are often comparatively low because of the material’s lightweight properties

Kansas GFRC Projects

Kansas GFRC Projects

Kansas Area GFRC Projects: St. Michael the Archangel Catholic Parish, Leawood, Kansas

Kansas, also known as the “Sunflower State,” is named after a Native American tribe that once inhabited the Midwest area.  The name of the tribe–Kansa–is often translated as “people of the wind,” which is fitting considering the state’s often harsh weather conditions and the frequency of its severe storms. Stromberg’s Kansas GFRC can help you create a new building or beautify an existing one with a material that is built to last.

Featured Kansas GFRC Projects

  • Lawrence GFRC: University of Kansas, Lawrence, KS

We Have All The Elements And Products Needed For a Successful Kansas GFRC Project! Choose From:

Why Use GFRC For Your Kansas Construction or Renovation Project?

Designers, masons, architects, and contractors in every American state look for materials that are versatile and offer aesthetic appeal whenever they undertake a new project. Professionals in Kansas, however, also need to consider the high frequency of tornadoes and severe thunderstorms, as well as the freeze-thaw cycles that occur every year.

Because of the harsh weather here, durability is a major factor in the material selection process. Stromberg’s GFRC has withstood category 5 hurricanes, and has been lab tested for wind speeds exceeding 240 miles per hour. Our Kansas GFRC represents an ideal combination of design flexibility, beauty, and strength, making it a perfect choice for an array of applications.

Our Kansas GFRC Services Are Available to You Wherever You Are Located in Kansas:

Wichita GFRC, Overland Park GFRC, Kansas City gfrc, Topeka GFRC, Olathe GFRC, Lawrence GFRC, Shawnee GFRC, Salina GFRC, Manhattan GFRC, Hutchinson GFRC, and more.
