Today, we are highlighting the story of one of our TRI Alliance members, Ami Feller, owner and CEO of Roofer Chicks.
Although she never imagined that she would one day own a roofing company, she has found great success building and leading her all-female crew in New Braunfels, Texas.
Her career in roofing began as she worked for her brother’s roofing crew back in the 90’s, initially by picking up construction debris, then eventually getting promoted to the roof crew, then crew lead, and finally to operations manager. Together, she and her brother started various construction entrepreneurial enterprises over the years.
Ultimately, they found they had different management philosophies and in 2016, Ami broke away and started her own company, Feller Roofing. In 2020, Ami began putting together an all-female crew, and in 2021, rebranded to Roofer Chicks.
Roofer Chicks is a residential and commercial roofing contractor, with a heavy concentration on residential reroofs and repairs. They install and service all types of roofing – asphalt shingles, metal, clay and concrete tiles, TPO, modified bitumen, and coatings. In 2022, the company opened a Handyman Division to diversify its product offerings, and in 2023 the company became a Window Depot affiliate, offering windows and doors as part of its product offerings.
When asked why she joined TRIA, she explained that she decided to join in 2020 because, while her company offered tile repairs through subcontractor labor, Ami did not feel like she, herself, knew much about tile installation.
She really enjoyed the class very much and felt much more equipped as a business owner to pursue tile work in her market. In fact, she was so impressed with the class, she has since asked key personnel to also get certified.
