About Our Long Island Commercial Roofing Services - H. Klein & Sons, Inc.
In the late 1800's, a young apprentice tinsmith fled the tyranny of the Russian Czar and made his way to his new home in America. Harry Klein quickly adapted to a new way of life and putting his knowledge and skills to use. In 1902, he founded a small roofing shop , H. Klein & Sons Company in Rockaway Beach; Queens, NY. During the 1920's, the business grew rapidly and after their college educations, his three sons joined him in his roofing business. In 1927, H. Klein & Sons Company was organized into a corporation.
Harry Klein lived to see his grandsons work during their summers at H. Klein & Sons, Inc. and in 1944, he died. After World War II, four of his grandsons entered the business. The rapid growth of construction during the early 1950's, caused a needed move to larger facilities on Long Island in Mineola, NY.
