 Replacement Options



 Solutions to your Rotted Pediment


 If your pediment is totally rotted - it is time to replace it

 Imperial provides two solutions


 1) duplicate the pediment exactly how as it is now

     Made from a non-wood composite ArchPolymerTM


 2) take a standard model and modify it to your size

     requirements - a less expensive option






 Custom Services




 Unique Designs


 Concept Drawings to New Product    Send us CAD drawings for a quote






 Historic Reproductions


  Send us Photos of the broken pediment, historic photos of a former pediment, or drawings

 of the pediment with measurements specific Width, Depth, Height


  We will do a quote for you.   Upon acceptance, if you want an exact duplication of specific

  parts you can send us the broken pieces so that a new pediment can be created





 Size Variances

 An Existing Model Made Bigger or Smaller


 We can take one of our standard models and modify it to a different size or variation

 In this case the bottom width was made wider without a frieze board





 Attention to Details


   There are a few points that should be considered


   A) Specify how large the frieze board is  

   B) Specify the rise of the radius sunburst

   C) Specify the number of rays in the sun design

   D) Specify the depth













 For Historic accuracy Imperial can produce an exact duplicate of  your existing pediment in

 Hardwood both carved and milled.  You cannot use interior woods such as Poplar outside.

 In fact. we discourage you from using  Poplar or Basswood as it is too hairy and absorbent when

 painting or staining. 


 Exterior Woods include:

 Knotty Pine: Shellac the knots before painting

 Clear Pine: Some knots but small

 Western Red Cedar: Soft but Rot resilient

 White Oak: Extremely Hard


 Interior Wood Selection:

 Cherry, Walnut, Red Oak, Maple, Alder, Knotty Pine, White Oak etc 


 All are custom priced






 ArchPolymerTM is a synthetic composite

 material.  It is rot, water, and insect resistant.

 You can cut it like wood, screw into it.

 They are primed white. The backs are often

 hollow but the walls are thick. 

 Solid back is an option







  To install an ArchPolymerTM pediment use our construction adhesive on the back.

  If the substrate is brick use Tapcons by predrilling holes for the screws. If the substrate

  is stucco or siding use long - preferably no rust nickel screws and cover the countersunk

  head with our spackling compound.

 a Cement Composite


 Pediments can be custom made in GFRC-ZeamentTM for exterior use


  ZeamentTM is a lite weight composite consisting of Portland Cement, sand, aggregates,

  alkali resistant fiber, polymer, adhesives and water.  

  Glass fibers re-enforce the product resulting in a stronger material than normal

  concrete. ZeamentTM is a 1/2" thick laminate re-enforced with steel and usually installed by drywall,

   millwork and masonry contractors.

  It is lightweight enough to reduce the amount of structural steel required for a building, much less

  than 40lbs per square foot for

  precast concrete yet strong enough to be used in hurricane and earthquake zones. 

  GFRC can be used for columns, cornice, frieze,

  wall panels, domes, finals, pediments balustrades and more. 


  ZeamentTM can be supplied

  1) Smooth paint grade finish

  2) Internally pigmented in 12 colors

  3) Sandblasted to achieve the look of stone
