Peyton Carr founded AKVM in 2006, with the belief that a roofing company built upon hard work, honesty and integrity would provide property owners with the value, performance and durability they deserve. We are proud to provide quality roofing solutions at a fair price to residential and commercial clients throughout Sarasota, Manatee & Hillsborough Counties.

Early Beginnings

Peyton H. Carr’s first construction memory is different than most. It's 1976, and Peyton is sitting in the hot Georgia sun removing nails from reclaimed lumber and separating them into glass jars per his father's instruction. His father, Henry Carr, instilled a love of hard work and entrepreneurship in his son at a young age, and this project was a reflection of that approach. The US Army had given the raw materials of a two-story barracks building in Fort Benning, Georgia, to whoever was willing to do the hard work of salvaging the lumber. After the work was done, Peyton’s father used those same nails and lumber to construct two homes on one acre in Barnesville, Georgia.

Peyton’s father has had an immense impact upon his life and profession. As a two-time Olympic gold medal winner from the 1964 Tokyo games, a former New York Giant, and formerly the world's fastest man, Henry Carr always went the extra mile—often times literally—to achieve excellence in his field. Peyton’s business philosophy of honesty, working hard, and providing exceptional service is directly due to his father’s positive influence.
