True Industry Certifications

What do certifications mean?

Many contractors including roofing contractors claim to be certified by the manufactures whose products they sell. For most of these it actually means very little.

More on that below.

At Golden Rule Roofing we have onsite staff who have true industry certifications and an engineer. Those areas of certification are in the Building Codes required nationally and by your local building department. Engineering Inspection and Software Estimating certifications held by Golden Rule Roofing are the same certifications insurance companies use for the claim process.

Golden Rule Roofing is the ONLY contractor in Colorado to have an in house employee team with these qualifications.

Our certifications include:

  • International Code Council Certification # 119785

    Visit the ICC

  • HAAG Roofing Inspection Certification # 201510234

    Visit HAAG

  • Xactimate X1 Level II Certification # 1526743

    Visit Xactware

Manufacture certifications are generally marketing tools and opportunities to control what the installers say about their products. Most manufactures issue rebates to roofing companies helping move specific product. One manufacture GAF, in their certified program prohibits the contractor and their owners/employees from disparaging any of the products or company in any way for life! In exchange for rebate dollars and marketing support. Even when there is a manufacture defect the contractor can not say anything to the property owner.

Golden Rule Roofing believes these methods are a conflict of interest and has taken the position of a Fiduciary and Advocate for our clients. We have never accepted any rebates from any manufacture.

Customer Reviews

  • While in the process of selling my house I found out there was significant hail damage on my roof. I called my insurance company and they started the claim and recommended Dan with Golden Rule Roofing. Dan responded promptly and worked directly with the insurance company. Since my house was under contract it was imperative that the roof get replaced as soon as possible. Dan went out of his way to make this happen including weekend work and working around inclement weather. I couldn't be happier with the completed work and the effort and time Dan put into the job. Highly recommended!!

  • "I have had many roofers make many promises about what they will do, but Dan Ruch delivered where others have failed. He was honest and upfront. He jumped though all the hoops my mortgage company required. They came out and took off the old roof within hours and would have completed the roof that day except for some mix-up with the City Inspector. In all, the roof was done by the second day. Dan kept his word, and that means everything to me. I would recommend his company highly."

  • "We had a roof leak in our rental house and my Allstate agent recommended Dan at Golden Rule. While inspecting the roof, he found old hail damage and recommended we file a claim with insurance. He met the adjuster and persuaded them to replace the entire roof because of hail damage. Golden Rule took photos of the process and shared them with us after the work was finished. Dan went above and beyond the call of duty for us. Thank you Dan!"

  • "Dan was recommended by our State Farm agent. His crew replaced our entire roof and cleaned up everything in only one day. The painters did a fabulous job with our old cedar siding on the house and staining the barn. Highly recommend them."

    – Shirley, Elizabeth

  • "Dan will honestly inspect a roof and tell the homeowner a new roof is not needed."

    – Tom, Allstate agent

  • "With the high winds, we had a large tree branch fall on our roof causing damage to the inside as well. Golden Rule and another roof company were referred by our insurance agent. Dan was quicker to respond and assess the damage. They covered the holes in our roof on the spot as we had snow in the forecast that night. He was very knowledgeable, met with my insurance adjuster and suggested a structural engineer which Allstate approved. The roof replacement and truss repair were completed in one day."

    – Jerrod, Lakewood

  • "The buyer’s inspection found hail damage on our roof. Our American Family agent recommended Dan. He met onsite with the adjuster and convinced him to cover it. We only paid the deductible, saving thousands of dollars. The crew showed up on time and completed all work in one day. Would use Dan again."

    – Eric and Barb, Thornton

  • "Our house was under contract and the closing set for two weeks when the buyer’s inspection found hail damage. Dan met with the insurance adjuster the next day and installed our new roof in time."

    – Derek and Kelly, Aurora

  • "My Allstate agent referred me to Dan after the hail storm in Denver. He personally supervised all the work. Removal of my solar panels, was on site for the roof replacement which involved removing 3 layers of shingles and re-decking with plywood. He also had people install new metal fascia, gutters and siding. Dan was so patient with me and always took time to explain things and returned all my phone calls, even on weekends."

    – Mary, Denver
