Our company was founded in 1968 by a young married couple who began their lives as orphans, Richard (Dick) Peterson and wife Donna. They began their company with no help other than their teamwork and commitment. Dick, a Navy Veteran, became a Master Plumber and Donna became one of Texas’ first female Journeyman Plumbers. And they did it all while raising a family & volunteering in Boy and Girl Scouts, PTA and other civic and charitable organizations. Work was 7 days a week and vacations were non-existent. Despite several economic downturns in the U.S., and three major Hurricanes which destroyed much of what the couple had built, A-1 Peterson Plumbing has survived to celebrate 46 years in business! Unfortunately, Mr. Peterson passed away after Hurricane Rita in 2006, but his legacy survives though his wife and two sons, William “Bill” and Richard II.
