Our History

Our company bears the name of its founder, Raymond E. Kelley, who began as a waterproofing contractor in 1934. Within a few years, Kelley added masonry restoration and caulking to his growing list of services. Since the firm had quickly become an expert in its field, manufacturers were eager to work closely with R.E. Kelley, Inc. in developing new products and methods of application. R.E. Kelley, Inc. also became increasingly involved as a consultant to architectural and engineering firms.

Diversification continued as the company adapted its proven techniques for use on commercial and industrial floors, parking ramps and bridge decks. While assessing building problems, the experts at R.E. Kelley, Inc. often encountered deteriorated window sashes that had resulted from deteriorating masonry and age. The next logical expansion step for R.E. Kelley, Inc. was in the window replacement field.

In 1976, R.E. Kelley, Inc. jointly founded the Sealant, Waterproofing and Restoration Institute (SWRI). The SWRI is widely recognized throughout the industry for its standards of excellence and reliable endorsement of high-quality products and innovative processes. Over the years, R.E. Kelley, Inc. has diversified to include all aspects of exterior fa├žade maintenance. The management team of Ronald C. Schlegel, President, Donald J. Warda, Vice President and Steven Sandroni, Vice President, expects the building restoration and maintenance business to expand, as more and more commercial buildings require the rehabilitation services that R.E. Kelley, Inc. can provide.
