CORNELL ROOFING & SHEET METAL
We routinely handle complex projects of any size and scope. Through continuous training and reinvestment in the latest equipment, our capabilities continue to increase and Cornell continues to be a dependable and trusted partner.
Whether it’s new construction, re-roofing or specialized projects, we deliver on time and on budget. The responsibility that comes with ensuring our work will stand up to the elements and provide a lasting solution in critical situations is a Cornell hallmark.
Our expanded capabilities allowed us to install a high quality, new tile roof on Swinney Recreation Center on the campus of the University of Missouri-Kansas City. Cornell works with many area school districts as well, helping keep the elements out and the schools and universities functioning.
We are approved and certified as a supplier to city, state and government institutions. With nearly 100 years of experience, we stand behind the integrity that comes with every Cornell project.
Cornell Roofing and Sheet Metal is founded on the solid bedrock of four key principles:
While our commercial roofing expertise spans nearly 100 years, Cornell continues to expand capabilities, purchase new equipment and always, invest in our most valuable assets – our employees. Our experts can handle projects of any size, scope and complexity.
Cornell is a woman-owned business with WBE and DBE certification from Kansas City, Missouri and WBE certification from the State of Missouri. Mary McNamara, president and owner has nearly 30 years of experience in the industry and has received numerous awards for roofing and sheet metal as well as community and industry involvement.
We steadfastly believe our foundation of values represents our commitment and our promises to our customers.
We call our way “The Cornell Way”. If you choose Cornell, you’ll understand – as our clients do – how our way makes a difference.
As a team, we are committed to certain promises:
• A promise to finish what we start, on time and on budget;
• A promise to pay relentless attention to even the smallest detail;
• A promise to use the very best products;
• A promise to never cut one corner;
• A promise to be the roofing and sheet metal company you can depend on.

This poem says a lot about the construction world. If you are at work, play or home today it was a team of tradesmen and women in construction that built where you’re working, playing or you are comfortably resting. Homes, Offices, Schools, Hospitals, Airports, Highways etc. Share if you enjoy Eric’s rendition.
