In 1969, a hail storm for the ages hit Amarillo, Texas, wiping out the town’s roofs and wheat harvests. As devastating as it was, the hail storm served as an opportunity for the Wilson brothers to learn about roofing. After his older brother, Doyle, had served on a roofing crew and asked his parents to let him roof the family home, Ralph Wilson got his first experience with roofing as a member of his brother’s crew.
Ralph continued to work with Doyle and his other younger brother, Clark, as all three brothers ended up in the roofing business in Austin. In 1976, Doyle wanted to focus more on home building, so Ralph bought Wilson Roofing Company from his older brother to keep the business in the Wilson family name. He masterly ran the operations for the next 42 years growing the business to where it is now with a 13,000 sq. ft. facility housing a complete sheet metal shop, warehouse for shingles and supplies, and offices for over fifty employees.
In 2018, Taylor Wilson, Ralph’s nephew, purchased Wilson Roofing to continue the Wilson Roofing legacy of being a family-owned business providing premier workmanship, quality, value, and customer service to Central Texas homeowners, builders, and business owners.
