Our Story

King of Texas Roofing Company’s roots started in Pennsylvania in the 1970’s, when Nelson Braddy Jr., went to work for his father-in-law, Mr. R.W. King. His company, R.W. King, Inc., was a roofing contracting business based in Erie, Pennsylvania. Following in Mr. King’s footsteps, Mr. Nelson Braddy recognized opportunities of the expanding southern market, where Single-Ply roofing was just beginning to take hold. Mr. Braddy founded the King of Texas Roofing Company in 1982. The family-owned business today is run by his daughter, Kelly Braddy Van Winkle, appointed CEO in 2019. Since the firm’s inception, its focus has been building long-term relationships with clients, general contractors, building owners, and property management companies in the Southwest Region, expanding nationwide.
