William Blessing, Associate Principal for Ratcliff Architects:
“Ratcliff has worked with Architectural Facades Unlimited (AFU) on various project types over the years and used many of their products, but our work together at Saint Mary’s College was truly unique.
AFU offers a complete process of product design and production techniques that actually follow the methods used in creation of the original architectural details of Saint Mary’s in 1927 - when the architect’s vision was taken from sketches through artistic mock-ups, mold approvals and into final castings. AFU keeps this traditional method alive and well, blending digital technology, hand carved foam mock-ups, and conventional molding processes to deliver rich visionary symbolism and with a durability of the real thing. Today’s jobsites demand far greater attention to detailing, structural attachments and team coordination than in 1927 – and working with AFU ensured that the artistic process was not lost in the pressures of the modern-day project schedule and jobsite conditions.”
Art Pons, Pon Construction:
“Thank you for all your work in guiding me along the design and ordering process on my project. Your professional insight on the proper installation and mating of your numerous products was an invaluable asset to the successful completion of the project. The castings have given the project the look that we were looking for and is truly stunning in its appearance. The client and I are extremely pleased with the entire result.”
Richard Li, Homeowner:
“AFU’s products are innovative. The quality is high and consistent. I intend to continue to buy from them again”
Pablo Riesen, Walton & Sons Masonry:
“While it’s not uncommon to have something go wrong in a construction project, having A.F.U. behind the supply of stone precast is always a plus. You can always count on their great customer service and their willingness to overcome any problems.
Superior quality and great customer service has always been what we received from A.F.U. The outcome has always been the best every time we installed their products.”
Bob Detar, O’neal Masonry:
“Honestly since I walked into your office a few years ago and started using your products I don’t have any complaint, every job has been perfect.”
Dipty & Sohag Desai, homeowners:
“ Architectural Facades was involved in the execution of my project from the beginning to the end. Frank and Rosiella were very helpful and even came to the site to suggest design changes and products that would work at our location.
From balustrades and piers to columns, copings, steps, risers and finials they had many products and designs and colors to choose from at an unbeatable price. Their products have made difference in the aesthetic appeal and character of our house.”
