Ja-Mar Roofing & Sheet Metal Acquires River City Roofing – Expanding In Recession!
Ja-Mar Roofing & Sheet Metal has served Austin, Texas since 1970. For more than 38 years they have provided professionally certified experience in the roofing industry, and today they continue to grow during these tough economic times! On December 1st, 2008, Ja-Mar Roofing & Sheet Metal acquired River City Roofing, which was founded in 1971 by Wilson Thompson. Mr. Thompson passed on the business to his grandson-in-law Daniel McCoy (no relation to our Longhorn Quarterback favorite Colt McCoy) in 2005.
Daniel will join the Ja-Mar team as one of the senior roof consultants. “Our clientele really compliment one another,” says David Phillips, Owner and CEO of Ja-Mar Roofing & Sheet Metal. “Their commitment to customer service matched our own making it a natural choice to combine our efforts.” Both companies have a solid legacy, with an established customer base, a broadening base, that encompasses high-end residential, historic landmarks, property management groups and commercial building owners.
Ja-Mar provides their clientele with a full-scale, custom sheet metal shop that specializes in comprehensive restoration, custom fabrication and precise replication of sheet metal products. Employing skilled artisans and craftsmen who have years of experience, Ja- Mar is capable of producing custom roofing panels, chimney caps, copulas, spires, and all types of flashings necessary for the most demanding of jobs. This acquisition offers the ability, eventually in Ja-Mar’s future, to become Austin’s Southside source for sheet metal products.
