Our Story

Douglass Colony was founded in 1947 in Greeley, Colorado and incorporated as Earl F. Douglass Roofing Co. in 1961. The Company grew and opened a Denver office in 1973. Colony Metal was formed in 1983 to fill Colorado’s need for a full-service architectural metal systems company. As our work continued to lead us south, the Colorado Springs office was opened in 1991. In 2009, Earl F. Douglass Roofing and Colony Metal were merged to provide innovative solutions and unparalleled seamless service as Douglass Colony Group, Inc. Since then, we have distinguished ourselves with an expansive line of services, high performance product lines, a professional labor force, and lasting customer relationships.

For over 70 years, Douglass Colony has been an industry leader in commercial roofing, offering innovative, effective solutions for all roofing types. As Douglass Colony’s competencies grew over the years, so did our product offerings and services. Douglass Colony’s diversified portfolio now includes roofing (flat, steep, re-roofing), metals (sunscreens, composite wall panels, light-gauge steel trusses, metal roofing, sheet metal, flashings & trim, panelized metal stud framing using the FRAMECAD system), solar (photovoltaic, rooftops, ground mounts, parking canopies, awnings), waterproofing (horizontal and vertical applications, gardens), daylighting, and commercial roofing service and maintenance.

Over the years we’ve had the opportunity to work on a myriad of projects across the city and we’re willing to bet that visitors and locals alike have seen our work first hand. From the State Capitol to Denver International Airport to the Convention Center, Douglass Colony has been an integral part of the Denver skyline for decades.
