Hopping on roofs has been our bread and butter for over 30 years. When it comes to the consultation, installation, repair, and maintenance of roofs, we only bring our A-game and top-quality architectural asphalt shingles. As Certified ShingleMasters, we bring you top-tier installation work. Whether you need a brand-new roof or require expert work to keep your existing roof up to snuff, we've got you covered.
When you go through the steps of purchasing a brand new roof for your home, we understand that it’s important for that roof to be reliable as well as downright pretty. Especially when we work on sites near the Gulf Coast, a durable roof can mean all the difference when a hurricane or tropical storm rears its ugly head. During the months that have less roof-damaging weather, your roof should bring pride to your home by looking sharp all year round. When we are installing your roof, we take all of this into consideration and make sure that you are left with a sturdy roof over your head that doesn’t skimp on looks and gives your property value a nice little boost.
We’re homegrown in the Gulf Coast, so we know what our weather can bring to roofs in Texas. If your roof has suffered from storm damage, leaks, or just plain old general wear and tear, our experts at United Contractors of Texas are ready to get to work on putting that roof in tip-top shape. We know the tell-tale signs of wear and tear, and our inspection will thoroughly diagnose the issues and potential issues before we even unload the nail gun. We know that a leaky roof can throw a wrench in daily life, and we’re here to make sure your home and family is protected from the elements.
We’re straight shooters over here at United Contractors of Texas. We don’t mess around with hidden costs and we are committed to doing damn fine work for our neighbors — and we consider y’all our neighbors. We’re not some giant corporate contracting firm with faceless employees. Instead, everyone from the CEO to the newest guy on our team will be up on the rooftops making sure you get nothing but the finest work on your home.
Good siding can be hard to come by. We’ve seen over 30 years of siding work, and we’re ready to put that experience into protecting your home. We can roll our sleeves up for installation and replacement, repair, and expert recommendations. The Greater Houston Area can cook up some mean weather, and the siding of your home can be greatly affected. The storms can bring in wind and hail, which can beat the hell out of the siding on your house. With record-breaking storms like we see, that’s a beating that can lead to less protection for your home. On top of that, our climate is as hot and humid as a dog’s mouth, which can lead to rot and fungus that can mean trouble for your health. Whether you are dealing with rot from the humidity, weather damage from our many famous hurricanes and storms, or if you’re just looking to make your home more comfortable and energy-efficient, we’re the guys for you.
We’ve been in this business for a while and we’ve found that when protecting your home from the elements, using quality materials and damn fine handiwork is the only option. It’s because of this principle that we recommend only quality siding like LP Smartside Siding. Designed for beauty and durability, LP Smartside protects against moisture, decay, hail, infestation, and just about anything Gulf Coast weather can throw at it. As Texans, we want our homes to be as tough as we are, and that is easily achieved with the durability and efficiency of LP SmartSide products.
At United Contractors of Texas, we don’t cut corners and we don’t mess around with hidden costs. We’ve always been a small, hometown company that takes care of our neighbors. We’re not here to nickel and dime — we’re here to do some damn fine work and keep your walls and siding protected.
When it comes to windows, having the right materials and the right installation can make all the difference. We have been installing windows for so many years, it runs in our family. Our resident window installation expert, Allen, was trained up by his father, who was known for being one of the best window installation experts in Texas. When we take on your home’s window installation, you can tell that we’re dealing with multiple lifetimes of knowledge and experience. Windows can make or break the beauty, security, and efficiency of your home, and we take that responsibility seriously.
It’s hot out there! We all know what it feels like to open up an electric bill and have a heart attack from the number on the bill. Texas summers can be brutal on both the body and the pocketbook, and we’ve found through our 30 years of experience that most of that energy is getting sucked out right through the windows. Old glass can be thin and windows that were installed years ago might not carry the same seal as they once did. The newer windows on the market can protect your home from AC escaping and from the harmful UV rays of the sun. We’re in the business of installing the most energy-efficient windows for your home like Cardinal 366 Glass so you won’t be shocked by those Texas summer energy bills. This glass comes with a lifetime materials warranty and a nice little tax credit for making your home more energy-efficient.
Want your own private oasis in your home? Need to cut down on the clamor of the outside world? It might be time to look into installing some sound-deadening argon windows — So you can’t hear your neighbors and so they can’t hear you. Whether it’s to ensure a quiet night’s sleep or party all night without disturbing the neighbors, protecting your house from sound can always be improved with the right window installation.
Make sure that your doors can stand up to the weather and act as the security you and your family need. We install doors as home additions and replace entryways that need a revamp. Our doors are only made of the finest materials – whether it is a reinforced security measure, or some inviting French doors that show off the garden outside with their glass inlays. A new door can come in handy for both looks and practicality. A new room renovation isn’t complete without a matching interior door with customized hardware. One of the easiest ways to raise the market price of your home is through the installation of a brand-new door.
We’re the guys for you. It can be a pain to find the right door for your needs, so we always offer consultation for all of our potential customers on the type and material of their new doors, and will even find the perfect door for your project. A well-made and correctly-installed door can mean slashing an energy bill or cutting down on the noise from the street and neighbors. The right door and lock combo could keep out even the most determined burglar. An interior door can frame a space and create privacy within the home. Whatever your entryway needs are, we’re ready to brighten your doorstep.
No Landlord Specials here! In 30 years of experience, we’ve seen it all when it comes to underwhelming paint jobs. We’ve seen windows painted shut, hinges painted closed, and thermostats painted over (we wish we were kidding.) Painting is all about patience. We take pride in making sure all of our lines are straight in the edging, and all the crown molding stays pristine. You can be sure to trust us with those original hardwood floors, because we take extra measures to make sure that our entire painting area is covered and protected so that we leave our worksites better than we found them. When it comes to painting, we’ve found that it’s the little things that matter: Taking the time to remove the fixtures, covering and taping where necessary, lining up edges, and keeping steady, even coats. We know that when done right, a fresh coat of paint can breathe life into a home, completely transforming it into something beautiful to live in.
Craftsmanship isn’t the only thing to take into consideration when painting a home. Knowing which materials to use in which job can save you a headache later down the line. Not all paints are created equal — and not all paints work for different climates and locations. We’re located in the Greater Houston area, which means we’re used to some serious humidity. The humidity can cause some trouble for just about every part of a construction project, and painting is no exception. We put down the right sealer primers and choose quality paint that doesn’t cause that ugly bubbling and blistering that can be seen in shoddy paint jobs. This means that you’ll see less chipping and a longer-lasting coat of paint that will save you from a repaint in the future (unless you just feel like a new color for your living room.)
We’ve heard at least a hundred and one horror stories about an overconfident homeowner punching through a water main and flooding the neighborhood because he thought he could skimp on the cost of a professional contractor. Fences can be deceptive and seem like an easy DIY task, but it’s not as simple as nailing planks together. Most homes sit on a network of utilities and wires that can be damaged by a misplaced fencepost. In our business, supposedly money-saving DIYs can end up requiring a boatload of money in damages or repair. Checking the plan from the city or municipal district is always the first step, but we’ve found in 30 years of experience that double-checking the plans for ourselves with a survey saves a whole lot of headaches. We’ve got the expertise and the equipment to properly survey, dig, and set fence posts, as well as the know-how in making a damn fine fence that will look good and stay sturdy through the years.
Adding a fence to your yard can do wonders for the look, value, and functionality of your home. When constructed correctly with the right materials, a privacy fence can turn your back or front yard into your own private courtyard oasis and cut down on sound and eyesores so you can enjoy the great outdoors in your bathrobe and bunny slippers. Fences can be great additions for families that are looking to get a dog or improve the life of a dog they already own. Give Fido a little room to stretch his legs and save yourself some walks with a fully fenced-in yard. Not only does a brand new fence benefit you, but it also makes your property more valuable for sale or rent. Potential home buyers tend to be drawn to the allure of a fully fenced-in yard, and with the right installation, your home could be transformed with a brand-new fence around the perimeter.
Whether it’s knocking down a wall or renovating the garage, we’re ready to roll up our sleeves and get to work. It’s your home, and you should be able to mold it into the house of your dreams. Renovations can be overwhelming but they can also be so rewarding for your home and property value. Just by knocking down a wall, we can create a completely new open floor plan and give your home a new life. We can turn your 4/2 into a 4/3 by adding another half or full bathroom. Renovations are some of our favorite projects because we get to work with a vision that the client gives us and help to make it a reality.
Have you ever noticed how buildings and fixtures that were constructed decades ago tend to last the ages where some of the new construction starts to crumble in just a few years? Some buildings are just built to last – and if you are a lucky owner of a historical home, you want to make sure that you keep it up like the owners before you. Regular renovation can tear apart the original woodwork, so a historical restoration project requires both a keen eye and an understanding of restoration best practices. Staying true to the original builder’s work can take time and dedication, but it’s all worth it when you are left with a gorgeous historical property that’s fully restored and has the modern comforts we know and love.
The Greater Houston area is full of history that gives our buildings and properties a one-of-a-kind feel that you don’t want to destroy if you can help it. We’re experts in both making something brand new and restoring old charm back into the heart of a home. We set the bar in terms of restoration projects by utilizing the right restoration practices and by using materials close to the ones used in the original build. When it comes to restoration, it’s all about respecting the original builder’s visions and revitalizing a piece of history so it can be used again as if it was just made. Having the know-how to restore a historical building or property comes with years of experience, and in our 30 years of contracting, we are confident that your home restoration project will be in expert hands.
No, really — turn your 3/2 into a 4/2 with a call to United Contractors. Whether it’s a new bedroom or nursery for a new family member on the way, a custom-made office space for your work-from-home lifestyle, or a mudroom addition to keep your home clean from the outside elements, we’ve got you covered. We will walk you through the consultation, design, structure, and utility management that goes into adding an addition to your home so you feel at ease with this big step in home ownership. A new room addition to your house can make more space for family and activities, but it's also one of the best ways to skyrocket your property value. Especially in a post-pandemic, work-from-home world, a house with an extra room addition can be very enticing for potential buyers or renters. A new bedroom or mother-in-law suite addition could breathe a completely new life into your home and open up your layout. Get creative with a workshop addition or a home gym – The possibilities are endless (or at least up until the property line.)
Not sure what kind of room addition your home needs? Trying to make your home addition vision copasetic with the property lines and HOA guidelines? We’re your guys. We offer full consultation on your home addition and make sure our work isn’t going to give you any HOA headaches or neighbor disputes down the line. We know that a home addition can be a huge project, and we want to save you time and money by making sure your new home addition is everything you dreamed. With careful planning and consistent communication, we’ll have everything we need all planned out before hammering the first nail.
