At times, there are unique things that happen to roof structures and we like to share those stories. Let’s face it, making roofing interesting isn’t the easiest thing to do, but telling stories about how we were able to help our customers makes it a whole lot better!
Wayne McDaniel shares the journey of the Seven Hills Health and Rehabilitation flat roof replacement project. From start to finish this job was expected to take about three weeks. The crew started out by removing the two layers of roof that were currently on the building, a modified roof over the original gravel roof.
They then replaced it with a 1 inch ISO recovery board and TPO 60mil system to finish the roof off. The original tar and gravel roof was like a magnet for the sun and the asphalt would absorb all of the heat, affecting energy costs. Their new roof, white and rubberized, is considered a cool roof in Florida. Not only is it a lot more energy efficient, but it will also improve the durability and longevity of the roof.
Despite all of the rainfall in Tallahassee in December, Wayne and his team at Apachee Roofing were right on schedule with the TPO roofing installation estimate of 17-20 days.
Apachee Roofing is a locally-owned Tallahassee roofing company, serving homeowners and commercial properties with quality service.

It’s not often a Tallahassee resident will have to completely replace their entire roof not once but twice – let alone twice in the same year.
Unfortunately for Justin and Courtnie Wheeles, the unthinkable happened this year thanks to Hurricane Hermine.
In July, a storm brought a small pine tree limb through the Wheeles’ roof on Lupine Lane and the insurance adjuster said they’d need to replace the roof. Justin has known Wayne for years, and Justin’s dad is an insurance adjuster who can vouch for the quality of Apachee’s work, so Justin asked Wayne to get his guys started on the replacement.
Wayne gave the estimate, the insurance company approved it a few days later and the project started rolling.
The Apachee team started on a Friday and worked diligently through the weekend to keep the project moving efficiently, finishing on Monday.
Two weeks later, Hurricane Hermine decided to pay a visit. Justin and Courtnie were out of town when they got a phone call letting them know the entire rest of the pine tree had fallen on the house.
Justin came back to work with the insurance adjuster for the second time and determine the plan of action. Because the roof is too steep to be tarped, Chad Swearigen with SRT has been helping dry out the home and coordinate the rebuild, based on recommendations from a structural engineer.
The Wheeles had planned to sell the home after the initial reroof, but now they’re going to rebuild, remodel out and stay. The second reroof will start in a few months, after the structural issues are resolved, and Justin and Courtnie look forward to working with Wayne and the Apachee team again.
