Company History

The history of Frank’s Roofing & Spraying, Inc. goes way back to Floyd Dampier. Floyd Dampier led three generations of Dampiers into the roofing business beginning in 1955, when he formed Dampier Roofing. Over the years, his son Frank and grandson Charles followed in his footsteps, each learning his skills from the generation before him.

Floyd’s son Frank originally started learning the roofing trade at Pigott Roofing in the late 1950’s, where he was a member of the hot tar mop crew. Some 10 years later, Frank started operating out of his home as Frank’s Roofing in 1969 under license RC#0001689 and Floyd joined him in the business.

At the time, Frank lived on LaBelle Street in East Fort Myers, across from Raymond’s Roller Rink. He would have bulk gravel delivered to his yard. Every morning before dawn, Frank would hand shovel the rock into his truck for the next roofing job. At the job site, he would manually carry all the roofing materials up a ladder to the roof. It was backbreaking work back then. Today, front loaders and crane trucks make the job much easier and safer.

Frank first moved his roofing business to a shop on Palm Avenue in 1973 and again 11 years later expanded to Hanson Street. His son, Charles Dampier, joined his father’s business in the late 1990’s, as the business expanded to encompass all roofing types. Charles began to assume day-to-day management of the company, as Frank assumed a sales role and traveled more. After 36 years in the business, Frank Dampier retired in 2005, turning it over to Charles and his wife, Amie who carry on the proud family tradition.

They expanded the business to include seamless gutter installation and repair in  2008. This has given them a competitive edge over other roofing contractors which do not provide this service. To accommodate more growth, the company moved in 2012 to 5811 Corporation Circle in Fort Myers at Billy’s Creek Commerce Center just off exit 139 on I-75. The company has grown to 18 employees and continues as Lee County’s long-time, trusted leader in the commercial and residential roofing industry.
