Who Is Protect Preserve?

Our History

Protect Preserve is a full-service roofing company with the goal to Protect your home or business – and to Preserve what’s inside. We were started in 2019 under the leadership and vision of Edson Brito III, but our history goes back much, much further than that.  Our founder is the founding partner in another company, Construemax Corp, which has been in the emergency services and home restoration industry for over a decade. Construemax has spent years earning a reputation as an industry leader for a whole host of home repair and restoration services, including:

  • Water mitigation (extraction and/or dry out)
  • Mold abatement
  • Fire cleanup
  • Smoke cleanup
  • Ceiling/drywall repair
  • Furniture restoration
  • Complete home restoration
  • Roof leak repair
  • Navigating insurance claims

Why There Was a Need for Protect Preserve

The Construemax team, led by Edson, has worked with many wonderful subcontractors including roofers, but like all subcontractors, roofers come in all stripes. Some are great, some are competent, and some are neither of these things. When hurricanes and tropical storms come through Florida the roofs of the state take a hit and roofers become very busy. So much so that roofing companies pop up seeking to capitalize on the disaster, and roofers come from out of state to complement the local roofing crews to help get Florida’s homes covered again.

In these tough times it’s great that so many people are wanting to help those hit by disaster. But with all the good comes the bad. Not all of those coming to the state or joining the ranks of the roofers are properly trained, properly funded, or honest. Some roofers will simply push for a whole roof replacement even when repairs are the most appropriate solutions. Some struggle to meet all the fiscal requirements of business causing long delays, or worse, go out of business without providing the service their customers had already paid for. And some, unfortunately, have ill motives from the beginning, sometimes even criminal.

When a hurricane comes through and the roofers get busy, there is a lot of competition for the best subcontractors. All the best roofers are busy. Fitting you into their schedule becomes a challenge. The solution to this problem is to create a new roofing company, one you know will always be available to you, one that has professional and trained roofers, and one you know you can rely on. And thus, Protect Preserve was born.

What Sets Protect Preserve Apart

While Protect Preserve was built in response to the frustration we saw homeowners experience, it is the vision of our founder, Edson Brito III that sets us apart.

He has been in the construction business for over 15 years. As the CEO and President of a mitigation and property restoration company he knows the importance of a good roof. He understands from first-hand experience that when disaster strikes, the roof is the first thing that must be fixed. Having seen both great roofers and horrible ones, he knows what it takes to be great and what shortcuts only cause homeowners, and everybody, problems. As the roofing license holder, he knows how to evaluate roofs, roofing materials, and roofing talent. As a business owner in the construction industry for more than a decade, he knows what it takes to run a successful business and satisfy customers.


Edson knows that not everyone on a roofing crew is going to be an experienced veteran, especially after a major storm. As such, he is a firm believer in training. The head of each of our roofing crews is highly trained. They bring technical expertise, professionalism, and reliability to the field. They set the standards and the ethics for their whole crew. We make the following commitments to you, our clients:

  • Each crew will be headed up by a well-trained expert.
  • We will give you options for your roof and educate you on the strengths and weaknesses of each option, so you can make informed decisions.
  • We will provide you with top quality work at affordable prices.
  • We will be honest and transparent.

  • We will do everything possible, including helping you communicate with your insurance company, to avoid unnecessary delays in the completion of your project.
  • We will be professional and responsive.
