Jim Bookhout

Maintenance Department Manager 

Roof Maintenance & Leak Repair

Dallas, Texas



With over 30 years in the business, Jim brought considerable knowledge in the construction industry when he joined Chamberlin. Before starting his journey at Chamberlin, he spent over 20 years working for a roof coatings company.

A Day in the Life:
While there is no typical day at Chamberlin, there is a morning routine Jim follows. Every morning starts with coffee and is followed by a 45 to 60 minute drive to work during which he listens to an audio book.

Jim believes customer service, safety, quality installation and productivity are four critical aspects to retaining business. He thinks maintaining a trusting and strong relationship with our clients is of utmost importance since a large majority of Chamberlin's work comes from repeat business.

Outside the Office:
Jim lives on Lake Ray Hubbard so, needless to say, he spends ample time there. When not working, he spends as much time as he can fishing and sailing. 

Alternate Dream Career:
Jim has a longtime love for sailboats and sailing. In fact, he's been racing sailboats since he was eight years old. While he competed in many national and world championships, he also made sailboat sails for five years before starting his journey in the construction world. In addition to making sails he also taught sailing lessions. If he weren't at Chamberlin, Jim would resume teaching and become a sailmaker. 

We asked Jim to choose his favorites from this random list of things as a way to get to know him a little better:

Ice Cream or Froyo

Reading or Audio Book

Dogs or Cats

Text or Phone Call

Apple or Android
