PLANO, Texas — Apple Roofing, a roof replacement and repair company with support centers in Plano, Texas, Lincoln, Neb., and Kansas City, announced the acquisition of Plymouth, Minn.-based NMC Exteriors

Since 1999, NMC Exteriors has been offering residential and commercial insurance restoration services — including roofing, siding, and replacement windows — to homeowners and businesses in the greater Minneapolis area. The acquisition adds significant talent and capabilities to Apple Roofing’s presence in the upper Midwest.

"This was an easy decision for the NMC team," said Molly Mortenson, CEO of NMC Exteriors. "We are a proud small business focused on community and customer service; and this partnership gives our team the best benefits, advanced software, further opportunities to grow in their careers and to be a part of something larger."

Nick Mortenson, NMC’s chief operating officer, said the new partnership with Apple Roofing brings many advantages from an operations perspective. 

“This gives us the opportunity to have deeper connections with insurance carriers and the business advantage to further expand our service areas in Minnesota and surrounding states all while doing what we love,” said Nick Mortenson.

Reflecting on the overall process, the leadership couple’s industry perspective was a key driver in choosing Apple Roofing as a partner. 

“After more than 20 successful years we saw a change coming across our industry and decided to start looking for a company to partner with,” said Nick Mortenson. “We interviewed with multiple companies and after speaking with the people at Apple Roofing and Gauge Capital, we knew that we had found the right team for our family of employees."

Molly Mortenson said most importantly, NMC Exteriors was seeking the correct cultural fit and a commitment to customer satisfaction along with opportunities and support for its staff.

“Apple hit all the core elements we were searching for," Molly Mortenseon said. "We’re absolutely thrilled to be a part of the Apple Roofing family. By joining Apple, our family just got bigger  we cannot wait to see what the future holds for all of us.”

Shawn Lucht, CEO of Apple Roofing, said from the day they opened NMC Exteriors, the Mortensons built a company with the goal of 100% customer satisfaction, and after more than 20,000 projects later that commitment to quality service has never wavered.

“On behalf of the entire Apple Roofing team, I’m excited and proud to welcome NMC to our growing company,” said Lucht. “We are looking forward to working with their team and we are committed to providing the same level of high-quality service their commercial, residential and insurance carrier customers have come to expect.”
