Formation Roofing & Sheet Metal, Inc.

The roof of your structure is the most important part of your residence or business’s protection from the elements. Here in Central Indiana, we know the weather can change in an instant. Formation Roofing ensures your entire roofing system is working together to provide year-round protection, regardless of the elements.

From the underside of the eves to the top of the ridge, our materials and craftsmanship work to keep your structure dry, provide essential venting for breathability and carry off water through seamless gutter systems.

Perfecting Metal Roofing, in and surrounding Indiana Since 1979

Formation Roofing and Sheet Metal, Inc. was co-founded in 1979 by Chris Underwood. The small business was run out of Chris’ garage and the trunk of a 1974 Impala on the east side of Indianapolis. In 1993, Formation Roofing and Sheet Metal, Inc. grew and Underwood was able to purchase a space located at 2712 Stanley Ave., Indianapolis, Indiana. The new facility provided an office, a 10,000 square foot sheet metal shop and over two acres that made up “The Yard,” which was used for storing reclaimed slate, tile and equipment.

As business continued and growth followed, another facility with over 38,000 square feet and four acres was purchased in 2007 at 1502 South Keystone Avenue. It took us eleven years of tireless rehab work to create this facility we now proudly call home.


We were privileged to donate time and materials in the slate roof replacement and replacement on the Pentagon after the 911 attack.


Formation offers all the roofing qualities that you need to protect your business, building and office structures. We have extensive knowledge in all phases of commercial, industrial, and institutional roofing types and materials, but we specialize in metal roof panel manufacturing.


Our team will walk you through the type of roofing system that will work best for your home. A quality roof is the most important element in protecting your investment. The least expensive option may sound like the right option at first, but if it’s chosen for the wrong reasons, that decision can cost you thousands of dollars and years of regret.


To ensure our standing as the leader in Indianapolis metal roof manufacturing, we maintain memberships in many of the top roofing organizations. This allows us to consistently provide you with the most up-to-date materials, cutting-edge technology and master-level craftsmanship at all times.

We proudly call ourselves a small business and feel this gives us an advantage over larger companies, as we are better able maintain the highest levels of quality and safety for our valued employees and customers.
