Build Better

About Us

With a tradition of innovation in building products since 1868, Benjamin Obdyke is one of America’s leading providers of high-quality roof and wall building solutions.

It's Ben!

Since 1868, Benjamin Obdyke Incorporated has been a leading designer and provider of residential building products. Our founder, Benjamin P. Obdyke, pioneered the first-generation corrugated downspouts. This innovation ultimately led to the modern day Benjamin Obdyke. Benjamin Obdyke’s pioneering spirit remains the hallmark of our company today.

Driven by the goal to always “build better,” we constantly develop and add new advances to our product lines by listening to the needs of the building and contracting community, as well as our distribution partners.

Our roof material and wall system products enhance the building system to maximize the performance, durability, and value of a building’s most critical elements — its outer structure. In short, when you “build better” with Benjamin Obdyke, you build to last.

We give back.

Giving back to the greater community is part of our culture. Ongoing support for a broad range of causes includes offering financial donations to a variety of charities, providing mentoring for students and financial support to Pennsylvania Free Enterprise Week, and shopping for gifts at holiday time for local children’s charities.

We have participated in a variety of community service projects. One of the most meaningful to us was Homes of Hope. Across Mexico, with the help of groups like ours, the Homes of Hope organization and neighboring charitable entities have built homes for more than 2,000 formerly homeless families. Benjamin Obdyke supports the Homes of Hope program in its efforts to make a difference – “one family at a time.” We have also spent our community service days working for local charities and organizations including, AchieveAbility, Cradles to Crayons and The Carson Valley School. These days provide us not only with the gift of helping others but we also have fun together and get a great lunch out of it!

Benjamin Obdyke is like a second home to me. It’s made up of a great team and they offer an excellent work-life balance.


For several reasons – it keeps me out of trouble (most of the time) and off the streets. I like the fact that while we take the work and business seriously, we do not take each other too seriously – we can have fun and joke with everyone. Speaking of jokes, I also like the fact that people laugh at my jokes (I like to think it is because they are funny, others might say it is for other reasons).


Why, because there’s a kitchen stocked with goodies –AND- a Keurig with K-cups. It’s the important things that matter.


I like working at Benjamin Obdyke because of the fun, collaborative environment. We work hard, but there’s always time for a joke, funny story, or ribbing of a co-worker (especially the CEO!).


Yes – Obdyke is like a second family. Lemon Bars are yummy!


I like the people, the history, and the excitement about the future. Rare for a long-standing company, we do not settle for the status-quo. We embrace change and then charge towards the goal line!


It's a company where great minds come together to make better products; eliminating construction catastrophes one project at a time.
