Roofers in Houston come and go. After almost 30 years on the Texas Gulf Coast, we still think of ourselves as ‘up and coming’. There’s a reason for that. <br> <br> Hi, I’m Ernie Smith. Thanks for checking us out! <br> <br> Houston is a big city with big storms. And roofers from across the U.S. come to Houston and the surrounding areas to set up shop. <br> <br> No license is required to be a roofer in Texas. Anybody can work on your house. So it’s no surprise that most newer roofers here only last a few years. <br> <br> But we’ve been around for 30 years this year. Ernie Smith & Sons Roofing is a genuine ‘mom and pop’ second-generation family business, Texas born and raised. And we’re still growing. <br> <br> We know what Texas weather can do. And because of our unique history and background, storm-proof roof installation is what we do. <br> <br> You see, though we work all over Houston, South Texas, and beyond, we cut our roofing teeth here on the Texas Gulf Coast – one of the most highly regulated areas for building and construction in the country. <br> <br> After more than two decades meeting and exceeding high-wind specifications and guidelines for the Texas Department of Insurance, storm-resistant roof replacement is second nature to us - and our specialty. We’ve never let a warranty lapse, and our TDI inspection compliance and success rate is immaculate. <br> <br> Things like six nails per shingle and reinforced roof perimeters are standard fare, for every roof, and there’s no extra charge - wherever you live. <br> <br> My wife and I had seven boys, and no girls. Growing up, they all learned to roof, and they all helped with the business. <br> <br> Now those sons have sons. (And a heaping helping of girls to boot.) <br> <br> After so many years and a lot of hard work, we’ve built a solid reputation. Friends telling friends, family telling family. (So if you don’t know us, the neighbors all do.) <br> <br> We have literally thousands of satisfied customers. From politicians to plant workers, detectives and dentists, astronauts and cowboys, engineers and homemakers – for starters. <br> <br> Chances are, there’s a roof we’ve done that’s just around the corner – or just across the street! <br> <br> Of course, we know how it is - if you enjoy spending money, it’s probably not on roofing. <br> <br> But it’s a whole lot easier with someone you know. Or at least all the neighbors know. Like Ernie Smith & Sons. Where, because we’re all family, after almost 25 years we’re probably just starting. <br> <br> Recent accolades: <br> We received the 2016 and 2017 Angie's List Super Service Award for providing our customers with excellent customer service. <br> Also for the past 5 years, we were happy to receive Better Business Bureau Awards. The previous two winning the prestigious Pinnacle Award which is given to only one roofer in the entire South Texas region. <br> <br> Contact us today for a free inspection, friendly estimate, or to find out more about our StormShield High Performance Roofing Systems.
