Architectural Panel Forming (APF) for Dallas, Austin & San Antonio

Architectural Panel Forming Co. (APF) specializes in the manufacturing of metal wall shingles, flush panels and standing seam roof panels for standing seam metal roofing. Wall shingles and flush panels are built in our facilities in Austin, according to your architectural specifications, and sent to your job ready for installation. Installation can be completed by either by your personnel or our personnel.

Standing seam metal roof panels can be fabricated on site (no power source required) or prefabricated at our facilities in Austin, Texas and shipped ready to install on your standing seam metal roof. APF does not do installation of roofing panels, but can fabricate on or off site for your convenience. On site fabrication is advantageous in eliminating dimensional errors, shipping damage, short shipments and scrap losses. It also eliminates the cost of packaging and freight and makes it possible to adjust the width of panels to meet non- standard conditions.
