The Team

Van Martin Roofing, Dayton Roofing, Commercial, Residential, Industrial, team

In 2000, the Van Martin team consisted of Seth Martin and Doug Van Dyke who were involved in real estate investing. Problems and inconsistencies arose with one of their properties prompting them to step in and get the work done themselves. as a result, Van Martin Roofing was created from the determination to get the job done right. In 2012, after several years of a productive partnership, Seth moved on to pursue his other passions. Since then Van Martin has added several key components to enable the company to evolve as an industry leader.

Van Martin’s team consists of a core group of talented people who strive daily to achieve the highest quality workmanship for residential, commercial, and industrial properties. In addition, Van Martin has a defined mission to help building owners make good decisions with their roofing and related systems and a clear vision to establish Van Martin as the most reliable roofing and related service provider in Southwestern Ohio.
