Welcome to the Roof Show

Brace yourselves, as we are about to dig deep into the often amusing yet precarious world of commercial roof construction. Here, at Robison Roofing in Green Lane, PA, the unexpected becomes the routine, even while working amidst thermoplastic materials and straddling the skyline.

An Ode to Thermoplastic Materials

In an astonishing revelation by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, approximately 72% of commercial roof construction occurs while handling thermoplastic material. This incredibly adaptive and tenacious material has taken the roofing industry by storm. Hence, it is a rather familiar accomplice to most roofing shenanigans!

The Hardy vis-à-vis The Hard Hat

According to The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, falling isn’t just for love or autumn leaves – it makes up one-third of all construction fatalities in the United States. With these hard-hitting facts, it goes without saying that a roofer’s relationship with their hard hat is on par with their morning coffee – totally indispensable.

Craftsmanship: A Saga of Trials and Triumphs

If constructions were masterpieces, the crafter’s hand would be its primary essence. The National Roofing Contractors Association reports an intriguing fact – almost 40% of all commercial construction litigation arises from improper installation of roof systems. Quality craftsmanship isn’t just good business, it’s an absolute necessity to dodge a legal bullet in the commercial roof construction world. Therefore, when it comes to roofing materials and techniques, professional craftspeople at Robison Roofing bring their A-game.

Safety: The Stand-Up Act in Commercial Roof Construction

Safety is king, queen, and the whole darn dynasty in commercial roof construction. It Requires constant vigilance and precision, thereby turning construction sites into an amusing circus of caution tape, fluorescent vests, and hardhats. Etching stringent construction safety measures into practices at Robison Roofing, be it a whistle or a wide-brimmed hat, safety is always in style!

Go Green or Go Bust: Eco-friendly Roofs

In this day and age, if a business isn’t hugging trees, it’s probably missing the bus. Cruising with the times, a great trend in commercial roofing solutions has been the advent of eco-friendly roofs. Low in carbon-hoofprints and high in sustainability, these green roofs give businesses an eco-centric edge, while still being robust and cost-effective.

The Architecture Angle

Like a zesty twist in a plot, building architecture adds an exciting element to commercial roof construction. Trending architectural styles often lead to novel roofing practices. Open your mind, grab a blueprint, and fasten your hardhat, as the architectural terrain of commercial roofing is always ripe for a joke – or a jolt!


What should I know about the maintenance of my commercial roof?

Regular maintenance is non-negotiable for the longevity of your commercial roof. This includes regular inspections, timely repairs, and taking preventative measures against extreme weather.

Are eco-friendly roofs a feasible choice for all commercial buildings?

While the benefits are manifold, feasibility depends on factors such as local climate, building structure and budget.
