The Sinclair name has been a presence in Southwest Florida since 1997. Starting in Florida as a developer, by the mid 2000’s Sinclair became known for building hurricane resistant homes. In 2018 it switched its primary focus to commercial, industrial, and residential roofing while still maintaining general contracting services for repairs, restoration, and remodeling. Sinclair Homes LLC became Sinclair International Inc., now covering a large portion of Florida and licensed in a number of other states. 

In addition to being a fully vetted Preferred Roofing Contractor for 24 insurance companies in Florida, Sinclair has earned coveted certifications from the largest roofing supply manufacturers. These certifications place Sinclair in the top 2% of roofing companies nationwide, and allows Sinclair to purchase warranties not available to other roofing companies. These decades-long to lifetime warranties that cover labor, material, and installation are backed by manufacturers with 100+ year presence in the roofing business.  

Sinclair International Inc. is comprised of deeply experienced roofers, licensed code inspectors, wind and flood insurance adjusters, and permitting experts. Your Sinclair Customer Concierges are here to serve and make the process smooth and easy for you.

The Sinclair Construction Team

Dan Sinclair


Dan Sinclair, the company’s President and qualifier, started in industrial construction in the 1970’s, with a dual path in computer and electrical engineering starting in the early 1980’s. After working for years for his father’s civil engineering and commercial turned industrial general and mechanical construction company, Dan opened his first residential construction business in 1985 as a GC. By that time he had already learned robotics, programming, and computer aided manufacturing (CAM). 

He also worked in the electrical department in one of the world’s most advanced paper mills for a few years. Dan went on to complete three years of computer/electrical engineering, with a general first year, before going to work for a large electrical manufacturer at the plant, handling distribution. 

After completing an accounting degree from ACSB accredited SCSU in Minnesota, Sinclair moved to Florida to work for a commercial real estate developer. He acquired a title insurance, mortgage broker, and real estate licenses while taking the CCIM (Certified Commercial Investment Member) courses and studying for the CPA exam. He worked in commercial real estate and finance, while also serving as IT Director for the entities he worked for, or started. 

Sinclair was routinely a leader by necessity, rather than by choice. When local builders without financial or management experience began failing at the peak of the market, Sinclair was forced to step in and take care of the needs of existing clients. He obtained his General Contracting license in Florida and began building hurricane resistant homes that were certified green (Florida Green Building coalition), Energy Star Compliant and Fortified for Safer Living. During this time, Sinclair researched a number of ways to make homes stronger and more efficient, while shortening the building cycle to reduce costs for clients. He filed for a number of patents on homebuilding processes. 

After the homebuilding industry came to a screeching halt in Florida, Sinclair was pulled back to his roots, industrial and commercial construction. He worked in both finance and management for manufacturing plants, power plants and mining projects. Types of plants ranged from energy independence for the US to his history in paper mills, powerplants and mines. 

His background as an insurance agent and adjuster for large losses, has given him a unique perspective on the devastating impact of hurricanes. He is committed to helping people reinforce their plants, businesses and homes to withstand the impact of hurricanes. Sinclair has made his business focus helping hurricane survivors get back on their feet quickly from Florida to North Carolina to Texas to Colorado. 

Now the company is licensed from North Carolina to Louisiana (Texas does not require licenses) and Tennessee and Colorado. Sinclair holds a number of certifications including ICC Certified Commercial Building Inspector, Haag Certified Commercial Roofing Inspector, Tile Roofing Institute Florida High Wind Tile Certified Installer and Xactimate Level 2/Proficiency. Xactimate is the estimating program used by 85% of the insurance companies (wind, P&C) and their adjusters. In addition to holding a Florida General Contractor’s (unlimited) license, he is also a Florida Certified Roofing Contractor, a Florida Licensed Commercial Building Inspector’s (includes Commercial and Residential Roofing) license, an Alabama State Licensed General Contractor and State Licensed Residential Roofer, a Mississippi State Certified General Contractor with a master classification, a Georgia State Certified General Contractor, a South Carolina State Licensed General Contractor, a North Carolina State Licensed General Contractor, a Tennessee State Licensed General Contractor, a Louisiana State Licensed Commercial Contractor and holds a number of licenses in Colorado. 

Dan has also passed the national GC trade exam, so he can quickly pick up licenses in many more states in a fraction of the normal time. Additionally Dan holds a number of manufacturer certifications, including the CertainTeed Master Shingle Applicator certification, as well as both commercial and residential GAF certifications, the Mule Hide certification for TPO.
