Cornett Roofing Systems, founded in 1991 and headquartered in Franklin, Indiana, manufactures and installs an exclusive line of premium metal roofing products in Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky, and Illinois. In addition, CRS has become one of the few trusted slate and clay tile contractors in the Midwest, repairing, restoring, and replacing these complex and historic roofing systems. Finally, CRS serves our local communities by offering full-service repairs and replacements on all types of roofs, including asphalt shingles, flat roofing, and metal systems.

Founded by owner Richard (Chan) Cornett as a traditional shingle contractor out of his home garage, Cornett Roofing has become an American success story. Looking for ways to provide a better product and to stand out in the industry, Mr. Cornett expanded into installing more durable roofing, such as metal, slate, and tile.

After a few years of installing a nationally known brand of metal roofing, Mr. Cornett realized the metal roofing product could be improved upon, as he noted failures in the material. After a few years of research and development, Cornett Roofing launched its own exclusive and patented line of metal roofing products, manufactured in our 30,000 square foot, solar powered facility.

Today, Cornett Roofing Systems has grown from that humble garage-based company to a well established and respected premier Midwest contractor, with annual sales of over $4 million dollars. Locally, CRS provides a full range of roofing services, from small repairs to large replacements, working on all types of roofs. Cornett Roofing offers free estimates and has hundreds of positive reviews and customer testimonials from our over three decades in business.
