Texas Roofing Company, a Texas corporation, was founded in 1935 by L. R. (Randolph) Rampy, Sr. in Lubbock, Texas. Subsequently, Randolph, with his brother, L. W. (Woodrow) Rampy, opened several other roofing companies throughout West Texas and New Mexico. These included the Texas Roofing Company of Odessa & Frontier, Roofing Company of El Paso, and of Albuquerque and Hobbs, New Mexico. Sixty years later, the legacy continued when Texas Roofing Company of Austin, Inc. was founded in Austin, Texas by Rick Birkman, the grandson of L. R. Rampy, Sr.
Rick Birkman, a third-generation roofing contractor, was President & CEO of Texas Roofing Company from its inception in 1995 to 2019 when he retired. He was involved in commercial roofing for over 40 years, and in the Central Texas area for over 20 years. He was also active in the industry on a local and statewide level as the president of the Roofing Contractor's Association of Texas. Additionally, he served as a past board member of the American Subcontractor's Association of Texas, and a member of the Contractor's Roundtable. Furthermore, Rick was a certified commercial & residential roofing contractor as tested and certified by the Roofing Contractor Association of Texas.
