About Southeastern Roofing and Construction
Since 2011, Southeastern Roofing and Construction has been providing outstanding service to its customers in the Tampa Bay area. Originally servicing Hillborough, Pinellas, Polk, Pasco, and Hernando counties, the company has since expanded to serve Manatee, Sarasota, Hardee, Charlotte, Lee, and DeSoto counties.
Southeastern Roofing is family-owned and operated by brothers Ed and Mike Kappaz, who have been servicing the Central and South Florida markets in the construction and roofing industry since the late 1990s. The brothers started in the construction business to rehab homes, but found it challenging to find talented, experienced, high-quality crews to take on their roofing projects. In order to supply their clients with the level of attention and service they deserved, they launched a roofing business to complement their thriving construction business, forming the company as it exists today. We build customer relationships through strong example and word of mouth.

Meet Our Team
Ed grew up in Grand Blanc, just outside of Flint, Michigan. Upon graduating from the University of Michigan, he and his brother Mike formed a construction company in the city of Flint to renovate abandoned homes and bring them back to their former glory.
To escape the Michigan winters, Ed and Mike found themselves back together in the Tampa Bay area renovating homes for a group of investors, but their biggest difficulty was finding qualified and reliable roofers. The solution? They started their own roofing company, Southeastern Roofing, where they could control the quality and reliability for not just their investors, but for the community. Ed is a devoted family man who loves spending time with his wife, two daughters, and all of his nieces and nephews, fishing whenever he can make the time and traveling to learn, explore, eat, and make memories.
Director of Operations
Born and raised in Michigan, Mike relocated to Tampa in the ’90s for college and to pursue his baseball dreams. Injuries halted his baseball career, leading him to his other passion: construction. He excelled, forming a firm specialized in commercial projects in Tampa Bay. In 2008, noting the housing market opportunity amidst an economic downturn, Mike invited Ed to join him and in partnership with a private fund, flipped 180 homes in 3 years. A persistent challenge in construction was securing dependable roofing. The brothers concluded that creating their own roofing company was the optimal solution, and in 2012 Southeastern Roofing & Construction was born.
Family-focused, Mike enjoys spending time with his spouse and four children, and extended family, creating enduring memories by supporting his kids’ sports and exploring National Parks. The family also includes our mascot, Sydney, a black lab.

Why Choose Southeastern Roofing?
We are safety-focused
We have a strong focus on providing safe, high-quality installs and repairs for all of our customers. Our crews are trained to maintain job sites that are always safe, clean, and up to our highest standards.
We operate with integrity, not greed
Our estimates are always based on our best understanding of your project and are delivered in good faith. Our goal is never to overcharge you or your insurance company. Our staff will help to educate you on your options and find a roofing system or construction options that fit your needs and your budget.
We are committed to uplifting communities
We believe in giving back to our communities. The Southeastern Roofing and Construction team sets aside time each year to contribute our efforts to volunteer initiatives in our community.
We do not work with subcontractors
Each member of our replacement and repair crews work directly for Southeastern Roofing and Construction.
Why does this matter?
Subcontract crews may not carry the necessary insurance to protect you in case a problem arises during or after your roof is installed. By hiring our own crews, we are able to ensure that they have the insurance, training, and skills necessary to deliver the high-quality results and peace of mind that our customers expect from us.
We leave your property better than we found it
Our crews work diligently to leave your property in the same condition as the day we arrived on site, with the addition of your new, high-quality roof or project. We protect the properties of our customers by bringing dump trailers to carry away any construction debris and materials, and site-clean daily while completing the required inspections to ensure success! No matter your project, our goal is that when our crews pull away from your property, you cannot even tell that we were there.
“My husband and I have a rental home south of Tampa that recently began leaking over several rooms. My husband just retired from the military and we live in Germany making things particularly difficult but not with Southeast Roofing. We reached out to them by phone and arranged an inspection to which they found wind damage, then coordinated with our insurance company through approval, and installed a new tile roof. We had a roof removed/installed in another home of ours in Florida 10 years ago and we were concerned to relive the pain of coordinating with the county and inspections but these folks made it super easy for us. I would highly recommend Southeast Roofing to anyone”
“We were very pleased with the entire process when working with Southeastern Roofing & Construction. The team was very responsive (via phone and/or e-mail) and easy to work with. They were prompt in providing the expectations for the timeline as well as step-by-step information regarding the day of the project. Our materials arrived the day prior to the start. The roof removal and replacement was completed in one day. The crew did a great job cleaning up and removing the old debris. We would recommend Southeastern Roofing without hesitation.”
“Competitive price, showed up as scheduled, performed all work (roof replacement) as promised, kept me advised throughout the process, totally satisfied. Would recommend to friends & family.”
