Qualifying roofers must also have received fewer warranty claims and repeat inspections than 95% of all other Versico Authorized Roofing Contractors. They’re the Top 5%. The elite specialists. 1st Choice Commercial Roofing is honored to be counted among these top performing contractors.

Market Makers announced the awarding on their Facebook page, saying, “[We awarded] the prestigious Versico Gold Medal Applicator Award to our good friend Martin Morales of 1st Choice Roofing, at his brand new headquarters in Tomball, Texas. This award is a quality based award that is reserved for a very small group of roofing contractors in the U.S.. Contractors are nominated for this award by our field service inspectors based upon the quality of installation, response time, overall workmanship and professionalism. Last year we had a total of 17 contractors in the State of Texas receive this award, and less than 2% of our contractors nationwide have received this award. Congratulation Martin, and thanks you for commitment to quality. Award Winner in 2015 and 2016. Keep up the good work.”

Nutrition Depot Off Louetta Has A New Roof!

It’s always an honor serving our fellow Houston area business owners, and any Texan interested in health and fitness has no doubt heard of (or patronized many times) Nutrition Depot. Entrepreneur and owner, Bruce Ho, even joined us up on the roof to check out construction progress.

The health supply chain started out in 1998 as a small vitamin and health shop, competing against major chains like GNC and Vitamin Shoppe. However, Bruce carved out a successful business model providing fitness enthusiasts and athletes with knowledgeable service and wholesale prices. Today, Bruce is CEO over 18 locations and a 50,000 square foot distribution center.

A Roof Maintenance Plan Can Save Your Business Costly Damage

There’s nothing more frustrating than dealing with a leak in your business, especially if the damage could have been prevented had you been made aware of the wear and tear taking place above your head. In some cases, businesses have to close or shut down departments so that crews can clean up water or mold and repair or replace flooring, drywall, and other materials.

The solution? Contract with 1st Choice Commercial Roofing for regular inspections and scheduled maintenance. You’ll enjoy the peace of mind knowing your roof is in the care of expert industrial and business roofers.

In addition, thorough roof inspections and the timely repair of regular wear and tear can greatly prolong the life of your roof.

Except in the case of natural disaster, roofing systems don’t fail overnight. Most of the time, repairs have been a long time in the making, and result from one or more of the following:

  • Insufficient or lack of professional maintenance
  • Repair neglect
  • Poorly-executed repairs
  • Damage from housekeeping work (such as debris removal)
  • Poor workmanship of original installation
  • Building additions or improvements
  • Change of building use
  • Contaminants such as biological growth
  • Vandalism or accidental damage
  • Thermal expansion and contraction
  • Building movement and settling
  • Animal damage

A professional roof maintenance program can save you thousands of dollars on emergency repairs or replacement. It will also reduce tenant complaints and the risk of litigation.
