Keystone Marks a Decade in Commercial Roofing

In 2011, Keystone Commercial Roofing Keystone Commercial Roofing was founded on the idea that repairing an industrial or commercial roof shouldn’t mean replacing it entirely.

At the time, owner Jon Gingerich and Keystone’s team of roofing experts set out to provide money-saving, durable roofing systems from Conklin Roofing Systems.

Conklin Roofing Systems introduced its cool roofing systems more than four decades ago and the company’s line of superior roofing systems is well-known for providing property owners a cost-effective, lightweight, seamless, weatherproof roof for their buildings.

As a preferred contractor for Conklin, we’re able to combine their innovative roofing materials with our skilled roofers to revitalize your industrial roof, giving you decades of protection without the expense and downtime of a full roof replacement.

Roofing Business Partnership

When the company’s original owner wished to sell the company in the spring of last year, professional roofer Kenneth Byler considered it a great opportunity.

“I was involved with the business since a couple years after it started,” he says. “Once Jon (the previous owner) decided to sell, I knew I wanted to buy it because I knew the prior projects were completed properly.”

Roofing Industry Changes

The most significant changes throughout Keystone Commercial Roofing’s decade in the industry involve the use of technology and systems, improving efficiency and quality.

The clients and potential clients have also changed.

“People do a lot of research before hiring a roofing contractor,” Kenneth explains. “Quality and customer service are more important than ever.”

He encourages anyone looking for commercial roof repair, replacement, or installation to contact Keystone with any questions they have. Keystone Commercial Roofing offers free roof inspections.

Positivity Pays Off

While pandemic restrictions challenged the roofing industry, Keystone navigated the challenges. Deemed an essential business through the shutdown, operations could continue.

Using a CompanyCam, their professional roofers could keep building owners updated on their project without social contact, which lowered the risk of exposure.  Staff continues to adhere to the best practices offered by the Centers for Disease Control to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Additionally, an encouraging company culture helped. “We tried to stay positive and focused on helping people,” Kenneth adds. “It paid off!”
