As a Detroit native and the son of a former Olympian, Peyton Carr, owner of AKVM in Bradenton, learned at a young age that his hard work and unwavering commitment to his values would help him achieve success. As a young man, Peyton was self-employed as a painter, working hard and making a fine living, until he met an older man who hired him to help with his roofing business. The man, who was ready to retire, sold his company to Peyton, who had fallen in love with roofing and has remained in the roofing industry ever since.
AKVM has continued to exemplify Peyton’s values since opening its doors in 2006, doing business with honesty, quality workmanship and professional service with every customer.
