K David Galloway, Owner
Dave Galloway has been a driving force behind Galloway Roofing since its inception. There are many men and women that work hard and dedicate themselves to their work and their families. Dave Galloway goes beyond every obstacle, having put into his company thousands of hours to endure its success. Dave picked up a hammer at a very young age and installed his first roof on his mother’s pool home when he was just sixteen years old. The pride he felt after seeing his finished project made it clear to Galloway that he wanted to repair and remodel homes, specifically roofs. Since then Dave has proudly and diligently been applying roof systems to thousands of residential and commercial buildings both in southern New Jersey where Dave grew up and right here in southwest Florida where he and his family resides since 2006. If you don’t see Dave on a roof with his amazing team or in his office, then you will certainly find him with his wife Renee` and their two children Chance and Savanna on the water where they spend the majority of their down time or at a special event. Dave has provided jobs to dozens of people who think highly enough of their boss for them to put in the extra time and commitment making certain each homeowner, builder, realtor and property management teams are always completely satisfied with the exceptional service Galloway Roofing Team provides.
Dave Galloway is a proud member to the Englewood Chamber of Commerce, Boca Chamber of Commerce, FHBA (Florida Home Builders Association) CDBIA (Charlotte DeSoto Builders Industry Association and a past President to the Placida Rotary and current member where he continues to volunteer his time to raise money for his community.
Owner Renee` Galloway has worked alongside her husband Dave for the past twenty-two years! The Galloways moved to the area in 2006. They opened Galloway Roofing in 2011 at the worst possible time, during the housing crash. They had no other choice. Dave Galloway had lost his job as a roofing supervisor and the Galloways found themselves in financial ruins. Renee` Galloway was already diagnosed with Systemic Lupus and would find herself in and out of hospitals from other life threatening illnesses. As always, Renee` fought her way back. Galloway is the Chief Marketing Director for Galloway Roofing, working mainly from her home office. “There are so many facets to running a successful operation,” says Galloway. “Marketing, integrity and dedication are just a few of the key elements to a successful business.” Renee` Galloway feels strongly about community service, keeping her children active in giving back. “Having a strong relationship with your community, including local schools is extremely helpful in not only your success, but more importantly, your commitment to humanity! We should all be helping each other, especially our youth,” explains Renee`. “They are the ones that will be running our businesses and our community years from now.” Renee’s greatest pride above all is her children Chance and Savanna as well as her husband Dave and their two dogs, Bubba and Zoey. Galloway explains the love and strength from her family is what motivates her to excel in life. Renee` is a published writer. Currently working on a personal manuscript which she hopes will be completed by summer 2017.
