Welcome to our Frequently Asked Questions. We have tried to answer some common questions asked by our clients. If you find that your question is not answered on this page, please e-mail or call toll free (866) 445-4481.
What size steeple do we need for our building? Usually the steeple needs to be about the same height as your building from the ground to the point where it will be installed and for the width of your base to be approximately 1/10 of the width of your building. Our staff will be glad to help you with this design process.
Can we make changes to steeples pictured in the catalog? Yes. Louvers, stained “glass”, steeple crosses, and applied moldings can be added or changed. Click Steeple Accessories for more information.
What color steeples can we select? White is standard, but almost any color is available. We can even match custom colors if given a sample. Please speak with a service representative.
How is roof pitch determined? Pitch is the slope of the roof and is easily determined with a level and tape measure. If our technicians are installing your steeple, a simple picture or drawing is all we need to determine the roof pitch. Click “How to Get Roof Pitch” for more information.
What if we want to install our own steeple? In that case, we provide everything you will need for installation except tools.
What type of maintenance is necessary for fiberglass products? It is never necessary to paint fiberglass, the gel-coat finish is permanently molded into the product surface. Since steeples are exposed to the environment, they may need to be washed every couple of years with a mild dish detergent.
What colors are available for baptistries? Blue, White and Bone are standard colors, but custom colors are available upon request.
