Vogel Heating & Cooling has a long architectural history, dating back to 1940s. Fresh back home from WWII, Leo set out to make his mark in St. Louis and founded Vogel Sheet Metal. Back in those days, architectural sheet metal was as much an art as it was a 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 in St. Louis has not changed our old-school philosophy, namely that remembering service is the key to our success. This is never more evident than when a roofing contractor or general contractor needs immediate manpower to keep his or 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.
