Ernie Smith & Sons Roofing Case Studies: A formidable re-roof in the Silvercreek community of Manvel, Texas

Monday, June 19th, 2017 by Ernie Smith


This roof in Manvel, Texas is a great example of a complex job that simply can’t be rushed. Unlike other basic “up and over” roofs, this steep and two-story home had every possible challenge. We call this type of roof “cut-up,” because of all the many different angles and planes.

As native Texans, we’ve been around a long time. We remember when Manvel was just a tiny and quiet country town. But Manvel and the surrounding area has really grown. Country living within commuting distance of Houston and the Texas Medical Center is Manvel’s big draw.

Manvel is located on Highway 6 near State Highway 288 in Brazoria County. Years ago, before Interstate 10 was built, we’d drive through Manvel on the way to visit relatives in central Texas.





Located in the Silvercreek community of Manvel in Brazoria County, this home suffered significant hail damage and needed a new roof. Other roofers were canvassing the area but the homeowner was impressed by our solid reputation as a family business and many years of experience.

A home with a roof like this can seem quite intimidating - full ten foot ceilings make the house extra tall, and a steep and daunting pitch adds to the scare factor.

There are plenty of both vertical and horizontal roof walls that require meticulous detailed flashing installations, multiple intersecting planes and valleys, and dormers and other smaller penetrations such as skylights, chimneys, and wind turbine air vents.

Over the past couple of decades such complex homes have become quite popular in Brazoria County and throughout the Greater Houston Area. At Ernie Smith & Sons Roofing we’ve done our fair share, and we can handle any and all types of residential and commercial roofing projects. We’re ready when you are!
