History of Commercial Industrial Roofing , L.L.C.
Commercial Industrial Roofing, L.L.C., founded in Pittsburgh in 1924, is a third generation roofing company. Dominic Vasel, in 1924 bought a pick up truck and a ladder. He started do small residential roof repairs, repaired & replaced gutters & downspouts and also installed new shingle roofs.
By 1926 , if you need work on your roof, the people of Pittsburgh would say "call Dominic the Roofer." Than, shorty after the stock market crashed, people , who had all their money in a bank, lost almost all, if not all of there money.
Dominic saved, most of the money he had made doing roofing, for the last four years and fortunately for him and his family, the had access to money , to weather the storm . Slowly but surely, our great country, came back and pulled together because president Roosevelt created the WPA , "Work Program of America", The 'WPA' was designed to create jobs my building bridges , turnpikes, freeways, etc. "I believe " said the current owner of Commercial Industrial Roofing , L.L.C. , "That the Great Depression ended around 1935 or 1936. Dominic and his oldest son, Raymond S Vasel started back roofing. Eventually Raymond S Vasel took over the company and built up, the family business.
Dominic's son Raymond S Vasel had been grooming both of his sons, Gary and Raymond J Vasel to run the roofing business , so that when he retired, the company would stay busy and his two kid's would be making good money while working on residential and commercial roofing .
In 2010 Raymond J Vasel opened an office in Youngstown ,Ohio , to better serve are customers in North Eastern Ohio, while Gary still maintains our Pittsburgh office.
