Custom aluminum sheet in GTA

Hi All,

I am looking for place that would cut/bend aluminum sheet to match the garage frame. Could anyone recommend any place in GTA?

Similar to below video.

Roofing companies would know aluminum ppl, if you have a roofer, ask for a referral.

Having said that, you might consider refacing the wood with a new thin facing piece or even just sanding it and repainting perhaps. You can even Bondo fill and sand the bad areas....like doing car work.
Aluminum gets dents and you can't fix it. Seams don't look good either IMO.

I do not have roof referrals yet (new home owner)..

I see the paint coming out on the wood frame near garage door.. I will try to sand and repaint using waterproof paints..

Best bet to do. It should last few years.

Fill, sand and paint is easy fix for any DIYer which you now are as a new homeowner....leaving the wood frame is much better than aluminum...because it looks like crap when aluminum dents up.

These aluminum capping guys have rolls of different colored sheet and can bend to nearly any 90deg corner profile. Get all the wood trim capped at the same time; entry doors, garage door, fascia, porch posts, etc.
