Massey Roofing Services was founded by Chase Massey in 2017. Today, he and business partner Zachary Buchanan push the limits to make roofing in Florida as quick, easy, and affordable as possible.

Did I tell you the joke about the roof?

I didn’t? Don’t worry, it probably went over your head. 

If you live in Florida, chances are you’ve heard this joke already given the importance of a high-quality roof across the stormy state. If you haven’t, it’s probably because you’ve heard of Massey Roofing Services first, and you know that they’re not one to kid around.

Massey Roofing Services is a company that’s serious about roofs, and has made an impressive name for itself across Florida. Known by their customers for their courteous, professional and speedy service, Massey Roofing Services specializes in both residential and commercial roofing needs.

“We have a lot of knowledge and time invested in what we’re doing over here,” Massey tells us, who founded the company in 2017. He is a third-generation business owner, and shares his passion for the industry stems from growing up around his great grandfather, who owned a construction company in Tennessee. 

“I’ve always been around it,” he adds. “When I got to the age where I really needed to sink my teeth into something and figure out what I was going to do with my life, I just went full throttle towards roofing and got my license.”

In 2021, Massey brought Zachary Buchanan on as co-founder of the company, and together they have played an important role in growing Florida’s roofing industry. Massey Roofing Services currently has two locations in Florida, one in Orange Park and Englewood, and they also serve communities in Lake City, Palm Coast, Palatka, Jacksonville, Jacksonville Beach, Lakeside, Gainesville, Fernandina Beach, Saint Augustine, Atlantic Beach, Orlando, Daytona, Tampa, and Palm Valley.

When asked how the two met, Massey shares that he and Zach knew each other since they were kids. “We went to elementary school together,  junior high and even played junior high football together,” he says. “We used to walk back home from school together too, but we kind of split up when he went to the military.”

At the age of 17, Buchanan graduated early and joined the military as a cook, and later became an engineer for the special forces. “Afghanistan was my most notable deployment,” he tells us. “It taught me a lot about work ethic, and how much easier it is over here than it is over there.”

Buchanan continues, “there was no option to sleep or relax, or do any of that. But if it wasn’t for that part of my life, I wouldn’t appreciate everything that I have now, and I wouldn’t put forth as much effort as I do,” he adds.

One thing that Massey and Buchanan say they appreciate most is their team of hard-working and dedicated people that make their job a lot easier than it should be. 

“We have a team that never sleeps,” Buchanan says. “Whenever we have an issue come up and I submit it to our group chat, I instantly have four or five volunteers that will say, ‘hey, I’ll handle it, I’ll take care of it for you.’ We’re always going, we’re always on the ball. Weekends, nights, I’ve had leaks come in at 10 or 11 o’clock at night, and we’re out there getting it resolved for the homeowner.”

When Hurricane Ian wreaked havoc across the state in 2022, Massey tells us that their employees volunteered to go out of their way and help homeowners in need, despite the concerns for their own safety.

“Whether somebody had insurance or not, we felt everybody needed that security,” Buchanan continues. “The amount of damage that the hurricane and rain caused to the interior of people’s homes was devastating. It just destroyed people’s belongings, and we wanted to help as much as we possibly could.”

The team at Massey Roofing Services worked 12 hours every day for a whole month, doing everything they could to ensure people’s roofs were secure throughout the deadly storm.  

“Zach and I are very appreciative of everyone’s hard work and time,” Massey acknowledges. Together he and Buchanan manage a team of over 150 employees, across two locations, offering roof inspections, maintenance, repair, replacement, and installation for both residential and commercial roofs, along with a 24-hour turnaround to best assist Floridian’s with whatever roofing needs they have.

“You can turn a $100 fix into thousands and thousands of dollars if you don’t have that quick turnaround,” Massey says. “Even a small hole can turn it into a massive leak, so it’s very important for us to prioritize our customers’ needs in the way that we do,” he concludes.
