MEET OUR TEAM
Hello, my name is George Silva, and I currently live in Houston, TX, with my fiance and 3-year-old son Gregory. Many years ago, my parents immigrated from South America to the U.S. where my sister and I were born and grew up watching our parents run their own business, which was one of the things that inspired me to start my business. To this day, my parents remain my biggest inspirations, as they came from nothing and worked to make a life for us. I can attribute my commitment to hard, honest work to watching everything they did for our family.
I graduated from Texas A&M University with a BS in marketing, and after 9/11, I knew I wanted to help people, so my career as a first responder began when I became a firefighter in 2003. Later in 2009, my roofing business was born from my love for construction. The satisfaction of knowing that I could help homeowners achieve the look they desire was another big reason for starting my company— my favorite part of my job is being able to help and educate people. I'm proud to say that I’ve spent 20 years in the fire service while running and maintaining a successful roofing business.
While I enjoy the design aspect of roofing, I’ve found that my biggest successes have been in helping homeowners protect their home with quality roofs. I have several stories in which we’ve fought homeowners' insurance companies for over a year and were able to get them to approve the claim. I can confidently say that I’ve found a purpose in helping people maintain and fix what is often their life’s biggest investment- their homes.
At Legacy Roofing, we make it a priority to educate all homeowners, we’re transparent with our clients, and, most importantly, we’re honest. Our biggest goal is to provide quality and honest work, because that’s what our clients deserve. It is my personal goal to be someone who always helps others, so I welcome any and all questions you may have!
I’m a huge family man, so nothing makes me happier than getting to hang out with my son when I’m not working. On the weekends, you can find me either spending quality time with my family, hiking in the mountains, or golfing. Aside from my passion for firefighting and roofing, I’m incredibly dedicated to supporting causes that fight against childhood cancer and animal cruelty.
