In 1983, Bob McKee started McKee Construction, Inc. As a state certified general contractor, his business focused primarily on pre-engineered metal building construction and installation. After 13 years of delivering quality craftsmanship and impeccable customer service, the company was sold in 1996.
Several years later in 2002, the next chapter began with the formation of Roof-Over America bringing unparalleled expertise in metal roofing and construction to Florida.
One thing you can count on with Roof-Over America is that we never sub-contract our work. Every job is self-performed, no matter how big or small the project is.
Our highly skilled crew is the lifeblood of our operation. We only employ the most qualified workers who demonstrate a commitment to professionalism with a proven record of quality. Many of our small but capable team have over 30 years of industry experience and are able to pass their extensive knowledge and expertise on to the next generation of Roof-Over America employees.
The roof-over process is a simple but effective way to repair metal roof damage. By fastening new sub-girts to your roof’s existing steel beams and installing new roof panels over the old ones, we eliminate the need to remove your old roof and expose the interior to the elements. Additionally, this process creates an air gap between the old an new roof that reduces heat penetration and ultimately lowers your energy costs.
We fasten 16 gauge sub-girts over the existing roof panels into the steel purlins and then install new 26 gauge “Galvalume Plus” roof panels with long life “ZAC” fasteners. These panels also come with a manufacturer’s 25-year warranty. This eliminates the need to remove the old panels and thus not expose the interior to weather in the process. This also creates an air space that reduces the rate of heat penetration inside of the building.
We use roofing panels made from 55% Aluminum-Zinc alloy coated sheet steel, known as Galvalume® on all our roof-over and re-roofing projects. This state-of-the-art material provides excellent atmospheric corrosion protection superior to other forms of metal roofing currently available. Field R&D testing has verified that this material has proven to last 30 years or more and is backed by a 25-year manufacturer warranty.
At Roof-Over America, we recognize the importance your roof plays in protecting the people, equipment and materials that depend on it for protection. We take our work very seriously and emphasize quality, craftsmanship and safety with every job we undertake. We are fully licensed and general contractors and members of the Florida Roofing and Sheet Metal Contractors Association. All of our work is self-performed by our dedicated and highly experienced team of hardworking roof-over experts and we NEVER subcontract to less experienced crews. Your trust is of the utmost importance to us and we pride ourselves on the great work we do. Just ask any of our highly satisfied former clients!
