Who We Are?
In 1968, J C. Lee, with the help of his father-in-law George Bower, purchased a small sheet metal and roofing company at 922 S. Morton in Bloomington, Indiana. Since then, B&L Sheet Metal and Roofing, Inc. has been a leader in providing top-quality single-ply roof systems, standing seam metal roof systems and metal wall systems in the Bloomington and Southern Indiana markets.
B&L was one of the first Indiana roofering companies to enter the EPDM market and has installed single ply rubber (EPDM) roof systems for over 25 years. B&L is an approved installer for both Carlisle Syntec Systems and Firestone Building Products, the two major single ply rubber manufactureres in the U.S. In July 1994, B&L became a Carlisle "Hall of Fame" member. This honor is given only to Carlisle roofing companies which have achieved the level of 250 "Perfect 10" roof inspections. B&L is a Carlisle ESP (Excellence in Single Ply) roofer, a Firestone "Partners in Quality" roofer and has also been designated as a Firestone "Master Contractor."
In May 2000, B&L moved from its original 6,000 square foot building on S. Morton Street to a totally remodelled 16,000 square foot building at 1301 N. Monroe Street. This new facility provided much needed room to expand B&L's office, metal shop and materials storage areas. Several new pieces of shop equipment were added as a result of this move and expansion, giving B&L one of the largest and best equipped metal fabrication shops in the state of Indiana. This has allowed B&L to precision manufacture all of its own roof-related sheet metal items such as copings, gravel stops, flashings, gutters and downspouts for all its roofing projects. Thus, B&L can control the quality, as well as timely delivery, of these items to our jobsites.
In the metal market, B&L is a major metal roof installer and has relationships with several major metal roof and wall manufacturers including Berridge, Rollcom, Morin, Fabral, Imetco, Copper Sales, MBCI and Metal Sales. B&L has also installed composite wall panels and column covers on several projects, including Bloomington High School South, Bloomington Hospital, Pike County Schools and Edgewood Elementary Schools.
From single ply membranes, modified bitumen, shingle, slate, and tile roofing to standing seam metal roofing, metal wall panels and composite panel systems, B&L Sheet Metal & Roofing has the size, experience and reputation for quality that has served the construction market in Indiana with pride for over 30 years.
