  Radius of Round Parts 

  Take Circular Dimensions with a piece of string and provide the circumference

  Provide the heights of each part


 or Supply the damaged Base for exact duplication




 For Exact Reproductions: The Design Process


 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 Column

        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.



  c) If you can - supply us with the Broken Baluster




 Step 3) How Many Bases do you Need

 Number of  Bases

 & Application


 1) Are all the bases Whole


 2) Are they Split to cover a Support Post

      If so what is the size of the support Post- send a photo

     Always check with a structural engineer or qualified professional for load questions.  


 3) Are they Split for Pilaster Application - up against the wall




 Step 4) Material and Application

 What Material is Required


  Is this Base for  Interior or Exterior Use 



  Hardwood: can be made to exact details - Wood bases are solid

  Select Western Red Cedar for Exterior Applications


  Composites from Molds:  They are hollow

  This is a more expensive solution, however the more columns ordered the less each one will be  

  If used in a load bearing application you can purchase load bearing plugs


   Unfinished Interior Use: 

             NeoPlaster-GRG,  StoneMoldTM, ArchPolymerTM

   Finished Interior Use: 



    Unfinished Exterior Use:
