The 10th annual Brevard Home and Garden Expo saw 65 exhibitors bring their products and services to the Melbourne Auditorium on July 15 and 16.

“Our expo is the largest of its kind in Central Florida,” said Jenna Smith, the co-producer of the event along with her husband, Frederick. “Our goal is to put the area’s leading contractors and suppliers in a position to assist consumers thinking about replacing, repairing or remodeling their homes, gardens or patios.”

Some of the new exhibitors, including All Aluminum and Screening, Greener Shingles East Coast FL Inc. and Stack — Moving Box Rentals. All Aluminum and Screening specializes in custom pool cages, lanais and insulated covered patios. Founded in 2022 by Mike Jaffe and Ty Keenan, two well-known contractors in Brevard County for 20 years, All Aluminum and Screening installs all of its custom designs to its customers’ needs. The company specializes in panoramic openings and unique shapes which add value to client’s properties.

“Mike and Ty were very honest and professional and were able to install our screens way sooner than expected,” said Alexa Young, a satisfied client.

Greener Shingles East Coast FL Inc. supplies a product new to the Brevard County area that allows for the rejuvenation instead of replacement of asphalt roof shingles at a much cheaper cost to homeowners, according to Mark Watson, the company vice president.

“Most asphalt roof shingles can last 20 to 40 years, yet typical roof warranties span approximately 15 to 25 years,” Watson said. “This means total roof replacements happen more frequently than the shingles’ estimated lifespan. If treated early, though, you can extend the lifespan of your roof shingles much longer than originally estimated.”

Greener Shingles’ solution is soybean-oil based and is a reformulation of the asphalt rejuvenator used to preserve the oil in roads, driveways and parking lots.

Stack — Moving Box Rentals is another product new to the Brevard County area. The idea is for people moving to rent and return plastic bins and dollies the bins stack on, rather than buying, assembling then discarding cardboard boxes.

Reusable bins on wheels are a newcomer to the moving market.




“Over 900 million cardboard boxes are wasted each year on moving,” said Frederick Smith, the local representative for the company. “If you use our product, you will eliminate waste while making your move more efficient.”
