Architectural Development

Working Closely with Architects Nationwide

Certified Enameling, Inc. has been setting the standard for service, quality and turnaround time in the architectural metal finishing industry since 1953. In the course of more than half a century, we have worked on a number of high-profile projects. These include major casinos and hotels in Las Vegas, large hospitals and medical centers, L.A. Live, the Ritz Carlton, the Staples Center , and the World Trade Center tower in Manhattan. Working on these types of projects has brought us into contact with some of the world's leading architects, and we have acquired firsthand knowledge of what it takes to develop a successful working relationship throughout the planning, design and building process. As leaders in our industry, we offer the skill and service necessary to help you get the job done right the first time.

In-House Custom Color Match Services for Architects

Our facility is set up with all of the equipment required for applying metal finishing to virtually any type of architectural feature, including, but not limited to, panels, coping, skylights, extrusions, small parts, break shapes, column covers, perforated panels, window and door frames and metal roofs. Furthermore, we are able to offer in-house custom color matching and can provide you with the exact color that you need for your architectural metal finishing without having to wait for weeks or longer while the manufacturer prepares and ships your order.

One of the things that most sets us apart from the competition is the fact that we have one of the fastest turnaround times in the industry. We typically complete projects with a lead time of only two or three days, compared with a week or more for our competitors. With so many variables and potential delays threatening your ability to complete the job on time or ahead of schedule, it is in your best interest to choose a metal finishing applicator that can help you avoid lag time. We work to help you maximize the bottom line, while also refusing to compromise quality. 

Using the Architectural Metal Finishing Products that Architects Prefer

Another reason that leading architects choose Certified Enameling, Inc. has to do with our selection of metal finishing products. We offer everything from Kynar 500® and powder coating to epoxy priming and polyurethane coating, as well as the highest quality of chrome phosphate pretreatment and Alodine / chem film. In addition to these, we have also developed a proprietary PVDF coating known as Cenamelize. Available at comparable prices to anodizing, Cenamelize has significant advantages in terms of durability, corrosion resistance and choice of colors.

    I never write letters, but today I felt compelled. Recently, I have been working on the project from hell. Nothing went right. The land had issues, the city had issues, the client couldn't make up their mind on anything, my staff was stretched thin, we were over budget, etc... I can honestly say that the ONLY thing that met and exceeded expectations was the part of the work that was done by Certified Enameling. Your staff was great, the job was done earlier than I expected, and the cost was to the penny what you quoted. Now if we can just get everybody else on par with you guys, life will be good. Thanks Glenn and Adrian. You guys are excellent!

    So far the initial reactions from our client and designer are all good! Thanks for all of your efforts in helping us make this a successful project; I know it has been an effort on everyone’s part. Thank goodness we assembled a good team of vendors to assist us with this project. So we only have a few more panels to put through the process so we will bear down a little longer.


    I want to take a moment to truly thank Glenn, Adrian, Scott and all the staff at Certified Enameling. I've been in the property development business for 30 years and I don't think I can ever remember dealing with a company that gets the job done like these guys do. The quality in which they deliver their service is truly appreciated. When they say the job is gonna be done in 2 days, they mean it, consistently. If all of my vendors provided products and services like the guys at Certified, I would never miss a deadline. I can't thank them enough!

    Hi Glenn, and the entire team at Certified Enameling. This week marks the completion of our 4,000 panel manufacturing run for this high profile project. It’s been a hectic 3 months to say the least. I just want to compliment the manner in which Certified Enameling stepped up to the plate, and did whatever was required to keep CPS, and ultimately our customer on schedule for this project. You went above and beyond the call of duty, and we sincerely appreciate your efforts. I am confident that no other firm, or team of firms in Southern California could have accomplished what we just accomplished in such a short time frame. Thank you for being such a strong business partner, and helping CPS achieve our goals.


    I've been wondering for years why when I get a metal finishing job done with another company it takes so much longer than with Certified Enameling? I'm talking double to triple the amount of time. I don't know if it's their process, their staff or their experience. The funny thing is that their work product is equal to, if not downright superior to the competition. Recently I decided, I really don't care how they do it, I'm just not going anywhere else anymore. You guys define expertise in every sense of the word and have earned my business for life. One less thing to worry about. Thanks Certified Enameling.
