      Paint Grade =  Basswood     Stain Grade =  Maple / Cherry / Oak / Alder

  b) Duplicates:  to be cast in Plaster, StoneMoldTM, ResinMoldTM  ArchPolymerTM


 Step 4) Rough Price Estimate


  A rough estimate can be created for budget purposes only and are not deemed as contracts.

  This price is not firm and can be modified upon completion of the design Process ie. CAD drawings and Final quotation.

  Do not expect custom items to be similar in cost to those of stock goods.



 2) The Design Process for a Firm Quotation

 Step 5) CAD Drawings


  a) If you are a qualified architect or designer

      - supply us with CAD drawings - plan views / cross sections / elevations

      - For specific details in the Carving.

        Supply us with a separate detail drawing that shows depths, widths and heights of the detail. 

        Manufacturing cannot interpret an artistic rendering as a specific detail showing 3 dimensions.

        Indicate how deep, wide and high each detail is to be.

        If no drawing is available,  Manufacturing will assess the detail to the best of their ability as they are hand carved.

        simple sketches, photos, or renderings are not architectural drawings


  b) If you cannot supply CAD drawings  click here for Custom Designs

      - Plan views / cross sections / elevations / specific details in 3D  must be made in order to create a quotation

      - There is a charge for design service, inquire for fee schedules

      Imperial's Custom Department offers the design services of Martin Richards Design and Contracting Inc.



 3) Final Pricing and Manufacturing

 Step 5) Price Quote 

  Once drawings are received from a qualified architect or designer or you have engaged the services of MRDCI,

  a detailed written quote with delivery and approximate time frame for production will be generated.

  Custom items are subject to longer timeframes. 


  Upon the acceptance of the quotation, the quote form and drawings must be signed

  All custom orders are fully prepaid in advance and cannot be cancelled, exchanged or returned

 Step 6) Production  


  a) Production of Stand Alone Elements

       All custom carvings are sold as unfinished hand carved wood products.  There may be slight variances in each piece.

       There is no guarantee that subsequent orders would have the exact details upon re-orders.


   b) Production of Duplicates

       If the single wood carving is used as a plug to create a mold, duplicates can be cast for your commission in

       StoneMoldTM, ResinMoldTM, ArchPolymerTM or Plaster.  Mold charges apply.


  Imperial offers various Freight options by common carrier - enquire about rates

  The intellectual copyright of the final product resides with Martin Richards Design and Contracting Inc.


 Example of Custom Historic Reproduction

 Step 1)


 the Original



  Supply us with the original metal or wood sections.

  In this example the end was lost, thus making it difficult to add section together to create a long fluted shaft.





 Step 2)

 Making a New Plug

 Plaster plugs are made for the mold from the original component.

 Note the mid band had been replicated to the end of the shaft so that

 sections can be joined together.  If the original part is damaged or does

 not exist, we can create the plug from hand carved wood or produce

  it from CAD and MDF model plugs.






 Step 3)

 The Mold

  A rubber mold is made from the wood or plaster plug.

 Step 4)

 Making Duplicates

  Identical ZeamentTM sections can be applied to the facade of the building.


 Step 5)

 The Final Product
