Founder & Owner

Gary Nickell

Gary Nickell is the owner and founder of Scott’s Roofing.  The company is named after Gary’s son and has been in business in Colorado since January of 2010.

Gary attended college at the University of Kentucky and then attended law school at Cooley Law School in Lansing, MI.  Gary worked in for major insurance carriers in the litigation department before venturing into business for himself.  Gary has 12 years’ experience in insurance claims industry which has proven to be invaluable.  Because of his insurance background, Gary has tailored Scott’s Roofing to primarily service insurance claims.  Our services are marketed to insurance agents, realtors, inspectors and the insureds themselves.

Gary’s wife of 24 years, Karen, puts up with his many idiosyncrasies like pacing constantly while on his cellphone or the “Macarena” while hunting for his cellphone.  Gary and Karen have 4 grandchildren who range in ages from 4 through 14.  So with college costs being what they are, Gary anticipates retirement somewhere about the time the sun starts rising in the west.

Project Manager

Charles Whatley

Charles brings a great wealth of knowledge and experience to Scotts. After graduating from college in Dec. 2008, Charles got into roofing after the recession set in and there were no other jobs to be had in journalism which he had studied. It stuck, and 10 years later he considers himself a lifer in the roofing business. When he’s not at work you can find him traveling abroad (30 countries and counting!), skiing, scuba diving, fly fishing, hiking, going to concerts, and spending time with his girlfriend. He also has a k-9 companion named Stanley that serves as his sidekick.
