Our Story
For more than ten years, Scott’s Roofing has steadfastly served Colorado’s roofing needs. Through hailstorms and sunny weather, we’ve been here and we’re going to be here with you where we all live, work and play. Scott’s Roofing, founded and owned by Gary Nickell, is a permanent fixture in our community and we’re here to go above and beyond for our neighbors with first-class quality and unbeatable value.
We’ve built our business here and we’ll treat your home like it’s our home.
There are THREE things we want you to know about us.
We put our customers first. Always.
People are busy and we understand that. At Scott’s Roofing, we build trust early so we can be a true partner to you throughout the entirety of the project. We stand by our promise to leave your property better than we found it. We’re with you every step of the way. Before, during and after the storm.
Our quality is unparalleled.
As the leading roofing contractor in Colorado, we select our products and partners with a keen eye on superior quality. Our team of roofing experts are committed to continuous improvement to ensure everything we do is engineered for excellence.
We’ve got a mission.
Scott’s Roofing didn’t begin with the planet in mind. We’re honest about that. But we heard more. Then we learned more. And little by little, we’ve made some big changes over the last decade. The way we see it, why would we do it any differently when we know better? We use products that leave your roof and the planet better than we found it. We don’t waste when we don’t have to. And we don’t cut corners or upcharge you along the way. The choice was simple for us, and we do our best to make it simple for you, too. There are 6 core values that guide our business each and every day:
  • We do excellent work.
  • We respond with urgency.
  • We are environmentally responsible.
  • We are real with our customers.
  • We do the right thing.
  • We are team players.
