About our Owner & Founder
A brush stroke....born the son of an Atlanta builder/developer, our founder Britton Bartlett has been walking construction sites as long as he can remember. He cut his teeth as a carpenter's helper during his teens. At 22, while pursuing an English degree, he joined the US Navy Seabees. He proudly served 9 years, receiving 2 Navy Achievement medals. While attached to the U. S. Naval Construction Battalion NMCB74, and NAS Sigonella Sicily. Britton managed construction projects worldwide - including runway repairs, aircraft hangar construction, and base facilities. He also worked on public infrastructure projects in several Caribbean countries and led facilities projects as refugee relief during the 1990s.
In 1999 Britton co-founded a family construction company which, enjoyed explosive success. After publishing numerous homes in national architectural and home magazines, Britton found his niche and left to form Canvas (ATW Roofing’s parent company.) It was a natural evolution. The desire to build high end, challenging projects, and the desire to be intimately involved in each led to the conviction that only a limited number of projects could be carefully managed at a time. Britton works with a limited number of architects.
In managing these niche projects, he discovered a deficiency in local roofers, capable of the critical task in properly protecting and covering these challenging structures. Water intrusion is the #1 exposure to all structures worldwide and that is magnified in Florida. Britton’s unique perspective as a General Contractor, Roofer, and Inspector equip ATW Roofing with providing the best quality product in Florida’s challenging environment.
