Advocate Construction was started in 2012 after a long apprenticeship in the roofing industry. I started at the very bottom, as a door to door salesperson, trying to get appointments for the Project Managers to inspect homes that we thought had hail damage. I went up the ranks from Salesperson to Project Manager to Sales Manager to Branch Manager to Area Manager. I have worked for a half dozen roofing companies, small companies to large companies, from North Carolina to the front range of Colorado.
My name is Scott Swauger, and I am the founder and President of Advocate Construction Inc.
I never really wanted to start my own business but was rather forced into it.
The simple truth was I could not find a roofing company that had the integrity that I felt I wanted and needed. I desperately wanted to work for a company that I could be proud of.
I had seen it all, from Project Managers marking up roofs, creating damage that was man made and not hail, just so they could call in a claim, to sales managers that could care less about the product or client experience and were only concerned by volume and profitability, to people who couldn’t care less about their clients interests. Everyone seemed to only care about the money.
The roofing industry lacks integrity. And I could not find a company to work for that cut against this grain. So, I started one.
The first week I was in business, I put a sign above my desk to remind me always about the guiding principle that I wanted to follow in this endeavor: Integrity. Always Integrity.
The sign still hangs in our office. It always will.
When I started this company in 2012, I wanted a company that would strive to treat everyone involved in the insurance claim process with honesty, absolute transparency, and a dedication to great communication and professionalism.
I wanted to bring added value that other roofing contractors did not have. I established the company policy that any Project Manager that works with our organization will be a Licensed Insurance Adjuster.
Every representative that works for Advocate Construction has this license. Why? Every Insurance claim is handled by the insurance carrier with a licensed Insurance Adjuster. These Licensed Insurance Adjusters work exclusively for the insurance companies. Advocate Construction Inc Licensed Insurance Adjusters all work exclusively for our clients.
“Integrity. Always Integrity!” This saying means a lot to us. This is what we stand for.
By meeting your insurance company’s adjuster, and also being a licensed Insurance adjuster ourselves, WE MEET AS EQUALS. I have found over and over again that this professional equality makes a remarkable difference in our ability to “Advocate” for our client’s interests.
We are dedicated to making sure that our clients are 100% indemnified for all insurable damage that their insurance policy covers. We are dedicated to building projects that use only the highest grades of materials, only state of the art systems, and only the finest warranties in the industry. So, this is what you get if you choose to work with our little company.
People who are dedicated to integrity. People who strive to be honest, and that care about doing what is right as compared to only doing what is profitable. Again: “Integrity. Always Integrity!” This saying means a lot to us. This is what we stand for.
Thank you for the opportunity to serve you in your hail claim loss.
Integrity. Always Integrity!

Advocate Construction was a pleasure to work with on the replacement of our home’s roof. They were honest and very communicative throughout the entire process. They even worked with us when our insurance did not believe some of our gutters and downspouts needed to be replaced. I will gladly work with Advocate again for any roofing needs.
I am in real estate and have been using Advocate Construction for my roof repair/replacement needs for some time. They are absolutely wonderful! Dan is extremely responsive and will handle the roof claims with the insurance so you don’t have to. They are reasonably priced and provide exceptional customer service. Cant say enough great things!
Our experience with Advocate Construction was great. Scott was on top of things in getting our roof redone. His assistance was invaluable. His crew was very efficient and orderly in their work and the finished product is one that we are very happy with now and for years to come. Advocate Construction is a great company with integrity.
Positive: Punctuality, Quality, Responsiveness, Value
Fabulous experience for Dan to come out and certify my roof. Professional and quick service all wrapped up into one company. Not only did he certify the roof but went over and above and caulked the few possible spots that might have needed it in like 10 years. Also, the company responded to the need of certifying the roof with a paid invoice within a day so that closing on the house would not be pushed.
Fantastic, ethical company. I called because I had a shattered skylight over my patio and Dan came out to take a look. Turns out the manufacturer is no longer in business but he took the time to locate the right size, order it and came out within a week or so to put things back together. He charged me his price for the materials and a set, very reasonable fee, for the labor. Even got a thank you card from him/the business. Will definitely use them again! Thanks!
I love working with Dan and Advocate Construction. They really take the headache out of repairing or replacing your roof. Just like the name of their business says, they really do advocate for you, their customer; especially when dealing with insurance companies. The process is so painless.
They are also really honest, they won’t replace a roof unless it truly needs it. Any roofer can go up and inspect and tell you that you need a roof just to make the revenue. I trust these guys completely and would recommend them to anyone!
Dan has been amazing to work with. He is not pushy and takes the time to help explain the entire process. You can always get in touch with him and he a great understanding of how to work with insurance and take care of us, the client. Highly recommend Dan and his team!!
Positive: Punctuality, Quality, Responsiveness, Value Great company, great people. They have replaced roofs in 2 of my homes. Seamless process and they took care of all the details. would recommend them over and over. It can be daunting to deal with insurance companies, and they made the process super easy. Use these guys!
Advocate Construction was able to help me under a very tight deadline. They were a pleasure to work with and did excellent work. I would definitely use them again. Highly recommend!
When you need someone to trust, call Dan and Advocate Construction. Dan is someone who will answer the phone, and communicate with you from beginning to end. They will give you an honest evaluation for hail damage, and guide you through the process of filing a claim. Dan is very knowledgeable, coming from the insurance business. Thank you for doing what you do!
Scott & Dan & the crew did a great job. The company is truly an advocate for the homeowner when your roof needs replacing due to hail damage.
Completed in less than 2 days and cleanup perfect.

Quick and very reliable, it was a great experience and I’m proud to recommend their service to anyone needing repairs. Amazing people and amazing work
