Vogel Heating & Cooling has long architectural history dating back to 1940's. Fresh back from WWII, Leo set out to make his mark in St. Louis and started Vogel Sheet Metal. Back in those days, architectural sheet metal was as much art as trade. Gutters were not run out of a machine - they were built by hand. Seams were soldered, miters were hand cut, and all buildings had architectural sheet metal elements. Nearly every South St. Louis home had an ornate sheet metal cornice, and Vogel not only specialized in this work, but the entire business relied on this work for nearly 20 years.
Leo’s son Steve learned from his father, carried on this tradition, and today has shifted the focus of Vogel’s architectural business to commercial work where this “hand built” tradition still comes into play. Our focus on Commercial Architectural Sheet Metal work has not changed our “old school philosophies" of remembering that service is the key to our success. This is never more evident than when a roofing contractor or general contractor is in need of immediate manpower to keep his/her project rolling on schedule and profitably. This kind of work is as much about service as it is about capability, and at Vogel, we pride ourselves on both.
