Nevada County is a close-knit community where word of mouth means a lot. Many of our clients were referred to us, and feel confident choosing us since someone they trust has vouched for us.
But what if you’re in need of a new roof and don’t know anyone who can give you a referral?
No matter how great a roofing company’s ads or website may be, it’s no guarantee you’ll be happy with their work. Since Gold Country Roofing has been serving Nevada County since 1980, we know we must be doing something right… but don’t take our word for it. Take a look at what some of our happy clients have had to say about us!
“We were very happy with Gold Country Roofing. Stan and his crew were total pros throughout the whole process. We got multiple bids and of all the roofers we met with, we were impressed with the attention to detail and thoroughness of the bid, their references, and their insurance documents, not to mention how competitive their bid was.
We were booked to have our roof installed later in the year, but this last storm revealed that our current roof was leaking. Stan was able to shuffle some things around and get our new roof installed ASAP.
The whole process was great, from the bid, to the office staff, to the crew that installed the roof. They left our yard looking nicer than when they got there and the new roof looks great.”
-Joe Carlson, Grass Valley
“I chose Gold Country Roofing for several reasons. Since I was spending over 100K for two roofs, I did get two other bids. My first step was to call a large roofing contractor in Atlanta to find out what type of roof was the better choice. Of course all manufacturers will tell you their product is the best. I was told by the Atlanta contractor that PVC was superior. My next step was to contact the Duro-Last sales representative. His feedback was very positive regarding Gold Country Roofing. All the while during the process of getting other bids, I was hoping your bid would be the lowest because I already felt like I could deal with Stan very well and that the installation would be done professionally. Well, I was right. Stan’s crew was very professional, started and finished when Stan said they would and communication was excellent. I was a contractor for 40 years and consider myself detail oriented. The installation looks very good to me. I did have two change orders that Stan charged a completely fair price for. Bottom line, I am 100% satisfied with Stan and his crew at Gold Country Roofing.”
John recently purchased two large commercial buildings with flat roofs that needed to be replaced. His new Duro-Last roofs come with a 15 year no-dollar-limit warranty, and are also backed by Gold Country Roofing’s workmanship guarantee.
-John Shaban, Auburn
“Thanks Stan for the great job of reroofing on my home. Carlos and his crew were so polite and did a wonderful job of cleaning up on both days. I will certainly recommend your company to anyone who might need a new roof. And thanks to Shannon, too, for making the process so easy!”
-Mary Weaver, Nevada City
“We are very pleased with the quality and efficiency of the work performed by Gold Country Roofing. Stan answered all of our many questions and offered recommendations based on our needs. Once we made our decision, he gave us a thorough explanation of the work to be completed and then followed up with a folder with information about the products and services to be used in our project along with a very detailed contract with the costs stated very clearly. When the job was scheduled, the crew arrived as promised. They were friendly, efficient and skilled workers. They kept the area clean and free of debris and protected our plants and outside furniture. The end result is a very high-quality, beautiful roof that will more than likely outlast us!”
-Jim and Diane Carter, Nevada City
“Roof looks great. Crew was fast and efficient. Small glitch with eaves. Stan came out within a day and explained/solved the problem to our satisfaction. Can recommend Gold Country Roofing without hesitation.”
-Pete Fraczek, Penn Valley
“When we needed our roof replaced, we got 5 estimates. Gold Country Roofing was not only the most reasonable, but the presentation that Stan provided was thorough and professional. It put our mind at ease about the quality of the product his company provided and the time that it would take to complete the job.
We were scheduled to begin work in December, but with the El Nino rains it wasn’t started until the end of February. The crew from GCR was excellent. They arrived when they said they would and worked hard all day. Our roof needed two layers removed. The roof over the back had dry rot and had been leaking for several years. Carlos and crew made quick work of removing the old roof the first day. By the second day the house was water tight. Total time to complete the job was 4 days. Rains came back that night and everything worked as expected. We also had new gutters all around the house and had 3 Velux light tubes installed.
Carlos and crew worked very well together. They were organized and each had his duty to perform during the re-roofing. They cleaned up every night before leaving. Their work was outstanding and the roof looks great. I would recommend them to anyone who wants a roofing crew that is friendly, courteous, professional and works to get the job done in as short a time as possible.
The overall experience was hassle free. Our thanks to Stan, Carlos and the crew for their hard work and to Shannon for keeping us in the loop during the entire process.”
-Roy Ng, Grass Valley
“Doing our commercial building was a project we did not look forward to, expensive, needed to get it done before the rainy season. Stan gave us a time frame and he came through for us, always prompt in returning telephone calls. From Stan, Shannon and the working crew, we would definitely recommend Gold Country Roofing.”
-Mario & Yolanda Krsulic, Auburn
“We are so pleased with our wonderful new roof, and now gutters, let the rain pour down! I would like to thank Stan, Shannon, and their expert team of “magicians” who replaced our very worn roof to new again! They were professional and patient while I made color changes, their crew cleaned up everything as they went, and everyone was very friendly. I felt confident in our choice the minute Stan came to our home for the estimate. Thank you all very much and I will for sure recommend you for other roofing jobs as I was recommended to you! I can’t wait for it to rain!”
-Mark & Sabrina Godfrey, Nevada City
“Thank you for all your help. The roof looks great and we are very happy with it.”
-Albert & Sharon Brehm, Grass Valley
“I can’t thank you all at GCR enough for your expert and professional service. The first call I made was to GCR, and that was the only call I made. After Stan came out to check out my roof, that was in bad shape, I knew I had called the right company after talking to Stan. I love my 50 year roof and new gutter system. I also want to send a BIG THANK YOU to Carlos, Carlos, Freddie and Jose, they are not only hard working professional craftsmen, they are great guys. I highly recommend calling Gold Country Roofing first, you will be glad you did.”
-Warren McGee, Grass Valley
“Exceptional service, on time, beautiful job. Looks like no one had been in the yard except for the new roof. Great crew and Shannon is a dream.”
-Ruth Lane, Grass Valley
“Your crew was very good. I appreciate greatly that you did what you said you would, when you said you would.”
-Pete Arpin, Nevada City
“Gold Country Roofing was one of the most delightful and stress-free experiences we have ever encountered. From the time Stan first arrived at our home to the last shingle installed their professionalism shined bright! Today when we pull into our driveway we truly enjoy the look and confidence we have of our new roof. Thank you Gold Country Roofing.”
-Joe and Edwina Grande, Grass Valley
“We are very pleased with our new roof. The shingles and color are beautiful. The roof vents have made the house cooler, a real plus. From the quote to the finished product we are more than satisfied. We have already recommended Gold Country Roofing to three friends, without hesitation. The workers were efficient, timely and very accommodating. It took three days and two hours on the fourth. Every day before leaving they cleaned the entire area. There was no damage to any of the shrubs, bushes or landscaping. We are so pleased and should have done this project sooner, truly painless.”
Almost a year after giving this testimonial, Richard called to let us know how much they’re still liking their roof. He told me “it’s 94 outside and only 69 in the house, your roof system really seems to work!”
-Rich & Shirley Veale, Nevada City
“I have learned to appreciate professionals and Gold Country Roofing is a company comprised of professionals. From start to finish they performed beyond my expectations and at the low end of five bids. You should give them a chance to make you another satisfied customer.”
-Chuck Bloom, Penn Valley
“It is my great pleasure to add my letter of appreciation to the innumerable others on file for the fine work done on my recent reroofing project by GC ROOFING. The work was performed in a superior manner, all details were taken care of, great patience by everyone was appreciated by me in response to my many, sometimes redundant questions, the roof looks fabulous and the job site was left cleaner than when the work was started. Observing the care taken by these obviously experienced professionals during the installation, I have no reason to doubt that this will be a very long-lasting roof. This was a CLASS ACT from the get-go, and I would recommend this company to anyone.
This was the third roof I have had put on over the years (not all on the same house) and have had some experience with this type of work and the contractors who perform this work. It is always a good idea to get more than one bid for any job… do your diligent homework by calling references, pay close attention as to how the contractor addresses your concerns, and at the end of it I have no doubt that you will find that GC ROOFING outshines the rest, plain and simple. This is a company willing to go the extra mile to satisfy your roofing issues. I would be more than happy to speak personally with anyone regarding my most positive experience with GC ROOFING – my number will be on file in their office.
Thanks again, to everyone at GC ROOFING, for being true professional masters of your craft and for my fine, new roof!”
-Nancy Stevenson, Nevada City
“A truly wonderful experience from the initial consultation appointment with Stan all the way through to job completion! After getting three other roofing estimates, I knew I had found the right person for the job and was excited for his crew to begin. Some key things I was concerned about when receiving different roofing bids were warranty and workman’s compensation insurance of the crew who would be doing the job. Both of these concerns were quickly alleviated after talking with Stan. The 50 year workmanship warranty of the roof installation was also by far the best I had heard of! Being a local, owner operated business made the decision that much easier knowing they have been in the community for over 30 years. In addition, working with Shannon in the office to pick a shingle color, coordinate a start date, and make payment arrangements was as smooth as could be! Stan and his crew also installed two new skylights I had purchased at no extra charge. I could not be more satisfied with the AMAZING job Stan and his crew did and I would most definitely recommend them to anyone looking to have a new roof installed!”
-Alan Fish, Penn Valley
“We love our roof! We needed a total redo (tear off, some new plywood, gutters, leaf guards). We also added 2 curb mounted skylights and a tunnel skylight. The whole process was efficient and the work was done as stated. They even painted the roof vents to match our roof. The crew worked here for four days and finished the job, leaving everything “spotless.” Stan responded to our call for help and provided us with a tarp when the roof started leaking during a severe rain, before the roof project was started. We appreciated all of the prompts from Shannon for paperwork to be completed. Now we have a roof that is worry free, as it is warrantied for our lifetime, and the warranty is transferable if you sell! Thank you for a beautiful job and your company professionalism. We would recommend this company in a heartbeat!”
-Mike & Geri Donnelly, Grass Valley
“You have a great crew. I think they left the yard cleaner than when they got here!”
-Joe & Lisa Macrina, Nevada City
“It was such a relief to have Stan in our court! We purchased a 30 year old home with its original roof, barely intact. Now we have a beautiful new roof with rain gutters and downspouts where there were none! All exactly as we had ordered. During the process, he kept us in the loop while we were waiting for our turn in line, checking in now and then to update us on the time-line…letting us know he was thinking of us, and then during the job checking in with any updates as needed. The crew came in, worked hard and the clean up was spectacular! Thank you so much!!”
-Laura Gagliasso, Grass Valley
“Thanks for the opportunity to comment on the work done by your team. While an assessment of the roofing product itself will have to wait for some years to pass, our experience with the owner/team that bid and installed our roof was very favorable. Stan’s initial presentation was informative. He answered all our questions without a high pressure sales pitch. As small an issue as it may seem, we were pleased that all our telephone calls were returned, something we did not experience with other roofing companies. Shannon, we’re sure your presence in the office is part of what makes for a very professional operation.
When work commenced, the team started work early, stayed late, were always friendly, courteous and professional and finished the job on time. After they left, there was little evidence of their presence, certainly nothing for us to clean up. We are completely happy with the team’s work and would recommend them to anyone in need of a roof installation.”
-Glenn & Gloria Arima, Grass Valley
One of our clients recently left this message on our phone, and I thought it was the cutest thing ever. Turn up your speakers!
“The roofing crew is very hard working and competent. It took 5 days to complete the job and they often worked beyond 8 hours. In spite of lots of pounding, the crew was easy to have around, cleaned up very well every day. The finished product is excellent, the gutter covers the best I’ve seen and I shopped carefully for this quality. This was the second to lowest bid of four I received and the quality of products installed and workmanship are outstanding.”
-Nancy Weber, Nevada City
Our crew is so talented and I have the utmost admiration & respect for them. That’s probably why I just love hearing how impressed everyone else is with them! This was the feedback I received during this week’s job…
“They are here working their @$$’s off. Nearly finished tearing off all the old piled on roofing material. Nice guys. Super hard workers.”
…then more feedback upon completion…
“The guys finished today. I just don’t have enough words to describe how impressed I am with all of them and the teamwork and happiness and laughter that went right along with their neverending energy and work ethic. I will sing the praises of your company for the next 50 years! Thank you, Shannon and Stan, and your team of partners for everything.”
…and a follow-up letter!
“I will definitely need a stash of your business cards at hand to give to friends with roofing needs! I am so pleased with the work that all the men did on my house. They were professional, dedicated, persistent and diligent. And managed to be fun and friendly while doing all of the above. I appreciate your honest evaluation of the situation, which was a lot worse than I’d imagined. Your presentation, being so professional and complete, gave me the feeling of confidence that I needed in a situation requiring such huge outlay of money. It’s such a relief to know that my old house is once again snug and secure.”
-Joyce Scott, Grass Valley
One of the most frequent comments we hear after a job is how impressed the clients were with the cleanliness of the crew, and how well they cared for the property. Here’s an example:
“The crew did a very nice job. Cleaned up each day, etc. As Stan said, the crew is used to working around sprinklers, etc. We have not found any broken. The workers were also very polite.”
-Richard Hawkins, Nevada City
“The work was excellent and the crew very friendly and competent!”
-Bruce Beeley, Nevada City
“Thanks again to you, Stan and crew, for a quality job completed on time and within budget. Hopefully we will have the opportunity to do business again in the future.”
-Jerry Funk, Division Chief, Nevada County Consolidated Fire District
“Thank you so much for a beautiful re-roofing job. When we returned from vacation, the roofing contract was completed as agreed, and the surrounding area was clean, no debris evident.
Our last couple of days have been quite warm. We find that our air conditioning load is significantly reduced because of our light colored roof [Owens Corning TruDefinition Duration shingles in Shasta White]. We also find that on days when we previously would have used air conditioning, there was no need due to a cooler house. It was your suggestion that we choose this roof color – and we much appreciate your steering us in this direction.
You surely deserve your designation as “Best in Nevada County”. Also, it was a pleasure to work with Shannon. In addition to her efficiency and gentle reminders, she has a great sense of humor. In appreciation for you and your company’s excellent service, we send our best.”
– Netta and Joe Kandell, Grass Valley
“Removed old roof, repair of dry rot, installed new lifetime roof, two solar tubes, new gutters and downspouts. Did everything I asked and more. Stan was very cooperative and coordinated scheduling with some other work I was having done. Carlos and the crew were very good and hard working. I actually enjoyed the time they were there. They were very receptive to coming back to do some minor tweaking to the gutter guards they also installed.”
-Kim Nelson, Penn Valley
“We just had a new roof installed. Stan Smith, Gold Country Roofing, is a gentleman. Spent time with us showing all the products and options. Agreed and the crew arrived on time and I watched, the entire day. Professional and courteous. After the job one worker walked around our house picking up pieces of construction debris around the home, tiny pieces no one would have seen. They cleaned our decks and driveway. Had a tiny roof extension off a bay window. The worker worked for a while and made a masterpiece! The roof jacks, old metal galvanized shiny metal, were painted the same color as the roof. Our home is a masterpiece. Please give them a shot, they are so worth it.”
-Walt and Connie Chatham, Grass Valley
“They were great. The estimate process was a little confusing, since they had a base price, and then other “add-ons” for things that didn’t seem optional. But a call to the office cleared it all up. They came when they said they would, and finished ahead of schedule. And were able to install fascia and shingles on a forgotten bay window without impacting the schedule. I highly recommend these guys!”
-Laura Confal, Nevada City
I recently asked a client’s permission for another potential client to call her for a reference, and this was her reply:
“Of course! It would be my total pleasure to assist as a reference. I contacted more than 10 roofers and you all stood out way above the pack and the finished product exceeded my expectations!”
-Nancy Baglietto, Grass Valley, CA
“I just wanted to thank you for all your work last fall on my commercial building. My roof held through the worst winter we’ve had in at least 20 years and I am thrilled. Please feel free to use me as a reference if you wish; I’m very pleased with your service.”
-Linda Haldane, Haldane Computers, Grass Valley
“Thanks for the great job on the roof!”
-Ron Merrall, Santa Cruz [rental home in Penn Valley]
“Just a note to say thanks for your honest evaluation of my roof. I am very happy I don’t need to replace it right now and truly appreciate your business ethics. If I know of anyone who does need a roof I’ll be recommending you. Thanks again.”
-Karen Schlanser, Grass Valley
“They’re doing such an exceptional job – I’m glad I chose you.”
-Pat Cooper, Grass Valley
“I was very pleased with the job and the county inspector gave me the final sign off this morning. Thank you again for your work and please give my thanks to your crew for their speed, professionalism and the quality of their work.”
-Melody Laverentz, Nevada City
“Our re-roof job with Gold Country Roofing was one of the most delightful and stress-free experiences. It started with Stan…my phone call returned promptly, a visit to our home scheduled quickly, a very detailed proposal completed and sent in a timely manner.
Then, when the work actually commenced…the team was personal, professional, hard-working, dedicated and conscientious. They worked into darkness one evening so that they could stay on schedule and were very concerned about cleaning up our home & yard daily.
I would highly recommend Gold Country for all your roofing needs.”
-Debbie Urbanec, Grass Valley
“Your crew is very impressive.”
-Rick Bethel, Grass Valley
“I expect expert service and I got it!”
–Jim Moule- Moule Paint and Glass– Grass Valley
“Wow, what a beautiful roof I have, the only sad part is now I have to paint the house to match. Thank you for such a great job. You have a great crew. I would recommend you to everyone who needs a new roof. Thanks again.”
-Vickie Young, Grass Valley
“I didn’t know getting a roof would be that painless. Everything went great!”
-Susan O’Neill, Grass Valley
Susan had a a new compositon roof put on her house, providing 40 year shingles, seamless gutters and Leaf Solution gutter guard. Susan will be enjoying the advantages of a new roof, along with the hassle free benefits of Leaf Solution. Thank you Susan for trusting Gold Country Roofing to get the job done!
“The guys just rocked. They did a fabulous job.”
-Fred Niman, Grass Valley
Fred’s house is just outside of Grass Valley off Highway 174. Fred had us install a GAF Elk Timberline 30 year roof. We installed new gutters with Leaf Solution gutter protectors. We also installed a ridge vent to keep his attic cooler and allow his insulation to work more efficiently. Thanks Fred!
“Stan, thanks for taking care of my problem.”
-Jerry Hund, Grass Valley
Jerry’s problem was that a company installed a high profile gutter cover over his gutters. Not only was the gutter cover able to keep the leaves out of the gutter, but it was also keeping out most of the rain water! The gutter cover was installed without positive drainage to the outside of the gutter and virtually created a dam. This caused rain water to leak in behind the gutter and damage the overhangs.
We were able to solve the problem by removing the old gutter cover and installing a Leaf Solution gutter protector. This low profile leaf system virtually keeps out all the leaves, dust and dirt while letting the rain water in. This system comes with a manufacturer’s lifetime warranty. So, no more worries Jerry!
“The roof looks great. Freddy did a great job.”
-Marcia Fellows, Grass Valley
“Those guys just work non-stop. You are very lucky to have a crew like that. I’m sure happy that I went with you guys.”
-Jeff Kenny, Rough and Ready
“The crew did a wonderful job.”
-Melita Banducci, Grass Valley (Gutter replacement and Leaf Solution)
“The crew worked hard and was very friendly. The thing I was most impressed with was there was no garbage laying around. I expected shingles and nails all over. But when they left, I couldn’t even tell they had been there except for my new beautiful roof.”
-Gerald Gibson, Grass Valley
