Plaster is our specialty. We have a history and fondness for plastering theaters and houses. Our craftsmen have worked on many of Alabama’s most spectacular buildings.

Spray applied fireproofing is sprayed onto steel to insulate it from the heat of a fire. This can save lives by providing enough time for people to safely exit a building. Spray applied fireproofing can be cement based or fiber based. Both materials have UL testing to ensure safety.
Simpson specializes in jobs under 5000 bags (175,000 square feet). Our knowledgeable crews can handle any size job, but we excel at quick jobs in small and tough installations. Originally, fireproofing was a plasterer’s trade and the material was plaster, but Simpson has watched the material change from plaster to the spray applied material used today. Experience has no substitute, and that has made Simpson a respected fireproofing installer. Simpson is licensed to spray all Cafco products, all Grace Construction products, and most Carboline products.
Exterior Insulation Finish System is a traditional stucco alternative that offers additional benefits like insulation value at a lighter weight. It offers a wide array of architectural details and shapes that can be made both economically and lightweight. EIFS consist of a series of layers made up of a basecoat of cement, one pound density expanded polystyrene, a fiberglass mesh of differing weights, and a finish coat of acrylic or other similar color coat.
Simpson is recognized by every major manufacturer as one of the best applicators in the country. Simpson has installed millions of square feet of EIFS and understands how to make your building look exceptional while making your details correct in every way. We carry EIFS insurance and have an in-house training program to teach all our technicians how to properly install the EIFS system. Our work can be seen all over the southeast, as well as New Jersey and Ohio.

The Simpson Panel System exists to save businesses down-time and money while performing an exterior remodel. We have manufactured and installed KFC’s Series 6000, Y04, Vision, and 3.0 packages for more than 260 franchisees including many multi brands such as KFC/ Taco Bell, KFC/ Long John Silver, KFC/ A&W, and straight Taco Bell’s. With the knowledge we have gained over the years, we know that we will save you time, money, and stress.
The time frame for installing our our panel system at your location is approximately 1 week. We spend the first 2-3 weeks of manufacturing in our controlled environment facility, not at your location. When we arrive on site, we use aerial lifts, not scaffolding (which tends to hide the building causing customers to drive on past) to install our system. 100% of the finish has been run, keeping the job site, parking lot, and landscaping free of trash. We perform all demo and build-up as required by your specifications and attach our panel system directly to the building. We can also hang the sign and awning package supplied by the customer. The location does not need to be closed at any time during our installation. We work in the drive-thru area during early morning hours keeping your sales at their normal levels.
If you are interested in a high quality re-imaging of your building without closing your doors, our panel system is that solution.
