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.
