Currently two generations make up the mechanics of McDavid Roofing Inc with the third generation on the up and rising. Please let us introduce you to our family here in Gainesville:
George (Chip) A. McDavid is our President and Chief Contractor. He started our company with little more than the shirt on his back or should we say “a hatchet in his pouch” in 1977. Chip is past president of the North Central Florida Roofing (FRSA) and Sheet Metal Association and a past Board of Director for the Florida Roofing and Sheet Metal Contractors Association. The respect he shows to all and the mandated high quality of workmanship from his employees has made him a legend in his own right.
Donna B. McDavid is our Treasurer and In-House Contractor. She started working at McDavid Roofing in 1979. Donna takes pride in her work allowing McDavid Roofing to exceed in quality workmanship and excel in customer service. She is also a past president of the North Central Florida Roofing and Sheet Metal Contractors Association. Donna is a licensed roofing contractor with the State of Florida. She is available for consultation at our Gainesville Office.
Natalie McDavid Dotson has been employed with McDavid Roofing Inc on a full time and part time basis since 1998. She graduated from the University of Florida in 2004 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing. Natalie works in our Gainesville Office part-time and is a Pediatric Oncology Nurse at Shands Children's Hospital in Gainesville.
Albert “Blake” McDavid is a Certifed Roofing Contractor with the state of Florida. He is our Lead Roofing Mechanic and Carpenter. Blake is a second generation of McDavid Roofers. He is a former collegiate baseball pitcher and has been employed with McDavid Roofing Inc since returning back to Gainesville.
Chase E. McDavid is a Roofing Mechanic. He is also a second generation of McDavid Roofers. Chase joined the family business following his graduation from P.K. Yonge.
Christie M. McDavid is our Office Manager and can be reached at our Gainesville office. Christie is a graduate of St Johns River Community College and a former collegiate softball pitcher. Most importantly she is the wife of Blake McDavid and the mother of our third generation, Albert “Jackson” McDavid.
Stephen Hedges is our Head Supervisor as well as one of our Estimators. He joined McDavid Roofing Inc in 1986 and was mentored by our former Operations Manager, Don Brown. Steve’s knowledge and expertise has widely contributed to the reputation we honor today.
Nathan O’Neal has been our Head Foreman since 1991. He is as energetic and reliable as he was the first day he began working for McDavid Roofing Inc. He is skilled in all types of shingle roof applications, as well as both Built-Up and Modified Bitumen Roofing.
McDavid Roofing Inc dedicates our success in part to Donald Edward Brown, Operations Manager from 1982 to 1998. Don was a former football player and football coach for the University of Florida who brought a strong work ethic to those who worked under him. His wife, Katherine Brown, worked in our office for 15 years prior to her retirement. Both are greatly missed and we will be forever grateful for the contributions and sacrifices they made in the name of McDavid Roofing Inc.
