A Sustainable Workforce Starts With You

Sky-High Roofing

Hi there.  The Chamberlin Man here.

Afraid of heights? Don't look at these photos!

A 12,000 square foot barrel shaped standing-seam aluminum roof constructed of 40-foot custom-made sheet metal panels isn’t the average roofing project.  Of course, it proved to be no problem for Chamberlin Roofing and Waterproofing in Austin.

The 320-home residential high-rise is called SkyHouse Austin for a reason.  Twenty-four stories tall, construction on the tower roof required innovative safety measures and a brave crew to manage the steep grade created by its barrel design.

Despite the challenges intrinsic to the design, Chamberlin delivered “our usual;” that is, outstanding workmanship.  In this case, the standing seam materials were custom fabricated in Chamberlin’s Austin sheet metal shop.  A five-man crew then installed the sheets by meticulously walking them into place, one by one.

Turns out, the feat of construction and quality of work delivered on this project caught the eye of a few folks.  In fact, Chamberlin was nominated for National Roofing Contractors Association's (NRCA) Gold Circle Award for Outstanding Workmanship in the Steep Slope Category.

Until next time, I'll be seeing you around.
