Any Way to radius aluminum cladding???!!!
O.K. we're building a new house in New York with three gables in the front. We have a general contractor. The right side of the "main" gable comes straight down from the peak, but towards the bottom it bends ("up") in a 48 foot radius to create a gradual swoop, until it joins with the frontporch and garage roofs at it's bottom right. AFTER it was built, AND the roof is on, "Nameless responsible parties" realized that the aluminum cladding (channels) for the facia only comes in straight lengths. Cutting and peicing together to fit the radius will leave a series of ugly seams on this main feature of the house design. Apparently bending the cladding is not an option. Or is there a way to do it? It can't be finished in wood beause the other two gables now also must be aluminum for various reasons--long story. Does anyone have any solutions? Any help you could give would be desperately appreciated.
