About Fat Matt

Fat Matt isn’t one of those here-today-and-gone-tomorrow roofing companies that blow into town after a storm and disappear just as quickly. We are from West Texas and will still be here to answer questions or offer help — even after we’ve installed your new roof.

Fat Matt Roofing West Texas

Why the Name "Fat Matt"?

Founder and President, Matt Smith, started going by “Fat Matt” during his days in the modular home sales business. After failed attempts to get his clients to call in and ask for “Matt,” he tried using “Fat Matt” instead. It worked, and clients immediately started calling or walking in and asking for “Fat Matt.” And when Matt (who was definitely not fat) would walk into the room and introduce himself as “Fat Matt,” he would kick off each new business relationship with a smile and a laugh. Today, Matt brings this same sense of humor into the roofing industry, working to make protecting and repairing your home or business a little more fun.
