Eiseman Construction celebrates 50 years of roofing and community service

This year marks the 50th anniversary for the Doylestown-based builder Eiseman Construction Co., Inc.

The family-owned business has provided roofs for residential and commercial properties throughout Bucks County since it was founded by Phil Eiseman in 1968. Phil moved to Philadelphia in 1960, where he realized he had a talent and passion for roofing.

He grew Eiseman Construction Co. over the decades into one of the region’s leading roofing companies with a team of 15 full-time employees and a list of more than 100 local subcontractors.

Early on, Phil instilled in the company the four core values of integrity, respect, family, and community. On January 1st, 2015, after a battle with cancer, Phil passed away peacefully at his home in Doylestown at age 70.

His wife, Melissa, then became Principal of the company, where she had worked alongside Phil since 2008. Today Melissa runs the business based on the core values that Phil established 50 years ago.

Eiseman Construction has expertise in a variety of roofing materials, including asphalt, cedar, slate and metal.

When it comes to roofing, the warranty process is a crucial element of Eiseman Construction’s commitment to integrity of the product and the work it does.

“We offer a 100% warranty that covers workmanship, materials, and labor on a new asphalt roof for as long as you own your home,” says Melissa Eiseman. “And the warranty can be transferred if and when your home is sold.”

This year, Eiseman has announced that it will also offer residential financing to help homeowners make needed updates to increase the safety and values of their homes.

The company also provides repair services and installs windows, doors, siding, decks and more.

One of the most distinctive characteristics of Eiseman Construction is the company’s commitment to the community.

Eiseman replaced the slate roof at the James A. Michener Art Museum in Doylestown, has provided in-kind work for the Heritage Conservancy at the Aldi Mansion, and has been involved in the expansion of the County Movie Theater.

Phil Eiseman was always a dedicated steward of the community of Doylestown and the greater Bucks County Area.

He was on the board of directors of the Bucks County YMCA, where today there is a community garden and a plaque in his honor.

“We are proud of our involvement in the community and see it as giving back to a community that gives to us,” says Melissa Eiseman. “Generations of families have had their roofs replaced by us and we hope to replace roofs for many generations to come.”

Eiseman Construction is located at 110 South Sand Road, New Britain. For more information call them at 215-345-9159 or find them online at
