Seeing a lack of creative options for exterior metal finishes, Wade Architectural Systems was established to provide new options and opportunities for the architectural market. A family business that has been going strong for over 30 years, our company was founded by Lisle & Bill Wade in 1988, whose effort has been continued in the next generation. Lisle's son Bill Wade and son-in-law Peter Parnham operate "WAS" with the same dedication to excellence.

During our three decades of operations, we've been involved in over 4000 projects across the U.S., though our primary focus is in the states of Texas, Louisiana, and Oklahoma. Our business has spread to three offices, staffed with 13 knowledgeable, experienced employees. You'll find the highest concentration of our products used across the southeast, contributing to breathtaking exterior design. We also deliver a wide range of services to provide our customers with a seamless design experience.



We can't do this alone! Wade Architectural Systems has partnered with a number of high-quality manufacturers that can supply your project with sustainable products and aesthetically pleasing features to exceed your expectations. From metal panels and light control to continuous insulation, interior ceilings and graphical design we're proud to provide our customers with products that reach across a wide range of architectural needs.
