Shout it from the rooftops, CentiMark is one of the largest commercial and industrial roofing contractors in North America. The company provides roof installation, inspection, repair, and emergency leak service. CentiMark typically works on flat roofs using EPDM rubber, thermoplastic, bitumen, metal, and coatings. Top customers include NASA and the US Army Corps of Engineers. Its QuestMark division offers commercial, industrial, and retail flooring, do-it-yourself products, and floor maintenance and cleaning products. Chairman and CEO Edward Dunlap founded CentiMark as an industrial cleaning business in 1967. The company, which has about 70 offices throughout North America, is owned by its employees.
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania-based CentiMark also does business in Canada through subsidiary CentiMark Ltd., which has offices in Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto, and Vancouver.
CentiMark's 2011 sales totaled more than $474 million, a 17% increase vs. 2010.
In response to customer demand for more energy-efficient options, CentiMark has been increasing its use of spray polyurethane foam (which adds insulation and a waterproof barrier to roofs). The company also installs electricity-producing photovoltaic solar panels onto roofs. Other green options available from CentiMark include skylights and garden roofs.
The company also tries to stay ahead of the pack with technological innovations, such as its MyCentiMark service. The online resource allows property owners to view invoices, work authorizations, before-and-after photos, and recommendations for future roof maintenance.
