Hurricanes can wreak havoc for many businesses, but repairing the damage wrought by Hurricane Ike led to a good year for Chamberlin Roofing & Waterproofing of Dallas, which finished 2009 with $66 million in revenue.

“We did a lot of remediation work, a lot for private [entities],” says David Neal, executive vice president of Chamberlin. “We’re an envelope contractor and are situated to handle everything from below grade to the skin of the building to the roof.”

Chamberlin, founded in 1897, organically expanded into Oklahoma last year. It serves five states from its offices in Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, Austin, Oklahoma City and Tulsa, Okla. The company works on new and remedial projects.

“We can offer single-source warranty, single-source manufacturers and longer warranties,” Neal says. “If your building leaks, we can fix that problem.”

In 2009, Chamberlin provided roofing services for the Cisco data center in Allen, Texas, and waterproofing and restoration at the Fair Park Esplanade in Dallas.

Looking ahead, Neal anticipates a stable year, as the company continues work on the Devon Energy Tower in Oklahoma City and at the William P. Hobby Airport terminal in Houston.

“Each office has some nice continuity work, but we are looking for more,” Neal says. “But we feel confident we can make it through some unprecedented times.”
