R.A.W. Roofing Austin Weird
Austin Roofing and Construction is a busy South Austin roofing company located on Ben White Blvd.  With 25 years’ experience owner Tim Bowen is now in the position to change the roofing business model in Austin.  We are one of the few roofing companies to be licensed by the Roofing Contractors Association of Texas.  ARC is also one of a few companies locally if not the only company locally that is dedicated to giving away multiple free roofs per year to our community members.  Roofing Austin Weird is our non-profit arm that has been donating roofs, roof accessories and roofing labor since 2015.

The Story ofROOFING AUSTIN WEIRD The Roofing Non-Profit Arm of Our Company:

One night Tim & Christine were discussing work and some of the unfortunate things we Run Into in This Business.  This Evening it Was an elderly lady who had hired a roofing company to re-roof her home through an insurance claim.  The company came out and gave her a roof and she gave them her money.  Two years later the insurance company came out to inspect the work.  They find the work to be unacceptable and they tell her to get it repaired so they could reinstate her policy which was now cancelled.  Now she was terrified because her reverse mortgage company had been informed that her insurance was cancelled and she had to have insurance as part of her reverse mortgage contract! What insurance company was going to cover her with this roof?  She called the roofing company that had done her roof but they didn't answer, they were long gone.  So she called Tim Bowen, with Austin Roofing And Construction. He went out there and fixed her roof for as little as he could out of her pocket and got her In touch with a good Insurance agent who took care of her and got the reverse mortgage people happy again.   Happy story?  Not really.  Tim was saddened by how such a nice lady was lied to, stolen from and put into such a bad position through no doing of her own.  He said "I just wish I could give her a whole new roof for free, because that is what she really paid for and needs."

       "Austin Roofing & Construction Company, Tim & Christine Bowen came to my rescue when I really needed it due to my husband's illness.   When our roof started to leaking, I had no idea how I would have it repaired, if it could be repaired.  It was just another major problem added on to the ones I already had.  When Tim & Christine became aware of my situation they immediately stepped in.
They came out, didn't repair it but put a Complete New Roof on, No Charge.
My husband Henry a 30 year Navy Retired Vietnam  Veteran & I will never be able to thank Tim & Christine enough.  They are two of the nicest, most caring  people you would ever hope to meet.
Just knowing them has enriched our lives, besides all they've done.

Thank you Tim & Christine.  GOD Bless you both & your family.  GOD Bless America."
