Before and after Roof-A-Cide®

What is unique about Avery Roof Services

We are a roof cleaning company as well as a full service, Florida Certified Roofing Contractor (license #CCC1329935). Our staff are trained professionals who know how to safely access and navigate all types of roofs without causing damage.

As professional roofers, we can identify and diagnose potential problems, hopefully before they become expensive repairs, and prescribe cost-effective solutions to extend the life of your roof.

As Roof-A-Cide® authorized applicators, we can guarantee you will never have to clean your roof again.

As a result, we can keep your roof problem free and looking great for its entire life. And when its time to replace it, you will already have a relationship with your roofer.

Tom Jacques

Tom Jacques, President

I came to Florida in 1985 from the Mojave Desert in California, and immediately fell in love with the green and blue of Southwest Florida. I began my roofing career working for a small roofing company in Nokomis, where I quickly discovered that roofing was much more than “just a job.”

I took to it immediately, learning the trade and quickly moved up through the ranks in the company I worked for. The roofing industry was growing quickly as the new construction boom in Florida was taking off. New technologies and improvements in roofing materials were being developed and I was lucky to be working with companies on the forefront of the new technologies.

I have worked for 25 years with some of the best, most respected roofing companies in the country, installing and managing multiple high-profile projects across the state of Florida and the southeast. Some of those projects include the USF Sundome in Tampa, the Stephen C. O’Connell Center at the University of Florida, the Publix Distribution Center in Lakeland, the Van Wezel Performing Arts Center in Sarasota, and the Philharmonic Center for the Arts in Naples. I have personally installed hundreds of roofs of all types, styles and sizes throughout the state of Florida, and am vastly experienced with all roof systems.

I have established a reputation for finding the best solution for most roofing problems, and am frequently consulted by engineers, builders, architects and homeowners for long term solutions to persistent roofing problems.

I have a wife, Chelsea, and three sons: Avery, Travis and Adam. All are involved in the family business. I love to spend time with my family as well boat, golf, and play softball.

Debra Karasick, Director of Sales and Marketing

I was born and raised in New Jersey and moved to southwest Florida two years ago. I have over 22 years experience in sales and marketing as well as business development within the automotive industry, representing brands such as BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Lexus, Ferrari/Maserati, Bentley and Rolls Royce.

When Tom asked me to join him in the sales and marketing end of Avery Roof Services, I jumped at the chance. I believe that the Roof-A-Cide® product has already begun to revolutionize the roof-cleaning industry, and will soon become a nationwide (if not worldwide) household name.

In my free time, I can most likely be found at the beach or in my pool, and I also enjoy boating, cooking and spending time with family and friends.
