Purl’s Sheet Metal & Air Conditioning Barbeque Smokers

Tuesday, May 9th, 2017

Friday barbeques are a tradition at Purl’s Sheet Metal. Our team of employees, customers and invited guests enjoy the weekly Friday lunch at our Madera office. Every week there is something different on the menu. After searching for a BBQ smoker, we decided to fabricate our own. What started as a passion to create the best “smoked” meats for our weekly lunch, quickly turned into a prototype for a new barbeque smoker. (Lasagna in the smoker is a Purl’s Friday lunch favorite!)
The food from our BBQ smokers was so delicious, our employees and our customers started asking to order one for their personal use. After much testing and sampling of great meals, we came up with a well-designed smoker.

Rainy Season: Time to Think about Your Home’s Rain Gutters

Monday, October 24th, 2016

The rainy season is coming up, and if your home doesn’t have rain gutters—or its old gutters are falling apart and leaking—now is a good idea to call up professionals for rain gutter service. Along with our heating and cooling services for homes, we also offer service to install and repair rain gutters. Our trucks are equipped so that our technicians can fabricate new seamless gutters on the spot to custom fit your home.

The Job of Rain Gutters

What makes a good set of rain gutters so important?  There are a number of jobs that these gutters do for a home and property as they channel rainwater:

  • Gutters funnel the rainfall away from the sides of a house to prevent flooding. Rain that travels down the outside walls of a building can easily get into windows, the tops and sides of doors, and into the lower floors. The worst case scenario is when water starts to get under the house and create damage to the foundation.
  • Gutters protect a home from water damage by removing falling water away from the sides house. You can often tell a house without rain gutters with only a glance: you’ll see ugly streaks and staining down the exterior walls from running water. A house with rain gutters is a cleaner, nicer looking house!
  • Gutters stop soil erosion and soil expansion/contraction, which is another way to protect a home’s foundation.
  • Gutters can help your plants as well, since they stop heavy water run-off that can lead to major damage to gardens.

Call us and you can talk to one of our rain gutter professionals for a free estimate. We fabricate our own gutters on site and will see that you have a perfect installation of rain gutters for your home.

Purl’s Sheet Metal & Air Conditioning manufactures, installs, and repairs rain gutters. Contact us for service in Bass Lake or elsewhere in the Central Valley.

It’s Right in Our Name: We Fabricate Sheet Metal for Madera, CA

Friday, August 8th, 2014

The majority of our customers come to us for our quality work installing, repairing, and maintaining air conditioners, heaters, and other indoor comfort systems. But these customers are often confused at the name of our company and the “sheet metal” part. The truth is that Purl’s Sheet Metal & Air Conditioning started out exclusively in the sheet metal business way back in 1952. This is not completely unheard of in the air conditioning world: developing the sheet metal used for ventilation construction often leads to working with the air conditioners that hook up to them.

Sheet metal fabrication is still an important part of our business, and we currently handle the work in a Madera, CA sheet metal fabrication building that covers 24,000 square feet. The technology we use has advanced tremendously since the 1950s, and our cutting-edge computer-controlled tools allow us to produce a high volume of unique products. We handle sheet metal fabrication for different industries and purposes: agricultural products such as irrigation systems and processing ventilation systems; customized roofing to fit any kind of space; hoods for kitchen ranges; and spiral ductwork that has recently gained popularity in both homes and businesses. We also manufacture the sheet metal we use in our new construction installations for heating and air conditioning.

One of the key tools in our sheet metal fabrication building is a computer automated plasma cutting table. We can program into the computer the different shapes and sizes of the pieces we need cut for a project. The plasma table then automatically configures them to make the maximum use of the material and cuts the shape using a plasma torch. A plasma torch is device that blasts out an inert gas through a nozzle at high speed and then changes it into plasma with an electric arc; the resulting plasma can move through metal rapidly for smooth cutting. We also use the plasma table to cut out standardized pieces, such as boots, that we use in new construction.

If you contact us for installation of a heating system, air conditioning, or ductwork, we will take care of all the necessary fabrication for the job. But you can also contact us when your need customized sheet metal in Madera, CA for a specific project. Our years of experience and up-to-date technology make us one of your best resources for sheet metal fabrication in the Central Valley.
