Our Story

Queen City Sheet Metal & Roofing was founded in 1945 by Oscar A. Puetz and his wife Diane H. Puetz. In 1922 at the age of thirteen, Oscar started as a sheet metal apprentice at Cornice. He quickly moved up in the company through his hard work and passion to provide for his family business with the help of their six children. Starting out as a residential and commercial sheet metal contractor in the basement of a hardware store on Aurora Avenue in Seattle, they got to work.

Queen City quickly became known as the best little sheet metal contractor in Washington State. In the 1950's Queen City decided to include all types of flat roofing work and waterproofing to their services performed. Queen City has completed projects such as the Kingdome, Centutylink Field, T-Mobile Park, The Pergola and numerous projects at Fort Lewis, Microsoft and Boeing. Queen City is very proud to be the longest running division 7 contractor in the PNW.

Oscar passed away in 1989 leaving behind a legacy rich in trust, hard work, passion and family values. His son Rikki picked up the torch and successfully ran the family business with his mother Diane until his passing in 2015. Rikki was beloved by everyone in the industry. Rikki's son Mark took over operations of the company and is currently running the show. Diane passed in 2019 and left behind a legacy of her own, being the only woman owner of a division 7 contractor in the PNW. She never stopped caring for everyone who walked through our doors and she is greatly missed. Mark is now working to expand the business with the help of his wife, Aimee and their children Cole, Andy & Camryn.

As a fourth generation company Queen City is excited to continue their tradition of amazing craftsmanship, Core values and preserving the legacy of Queen City Sheet Metal & Roofing.
