Cole Roofing Celebrates 100
A Century of family-centered commitment to excellence.
By Rita Colorito
Most construction businesses start with a service they can provide. Few companies start with a mission.
A century ago, John H. Cole, Sr. recognized a need in Baltimore for gutter and spout services, as well as the growing opportunity of home heating through internal duct systems. Working out of his basement on Bel Air Road in the Frankford neighborhood, he soon built a reputation for his commitment to superior workmanship and customer service.
That’s the service John H. Cole & Sons provided. The foundation of the business, however, was putting people to work.
