Eavestrough, fascia, leafguard

I hired Independent Roof Inspection Services to do an inspection of a new exterior aluminum installation which included eavestrough, fascia and leafguard. The job was quite expensive but done horribly wrong. The contractor refused to come back and fix their work and tried to sue me for the full amount alleging that nothing was wrong with it. Mr Baughn issued me a report which I used for Court and then later came to my trial as my witness. The Judge accepted Mr Baughn's evidence as probative and reliable and decided the case in my favour. I'm very happy with the result and that there are retired trades professionals out there like Mr Baughn who will offer their opinions backed up by decades of experience to help homeowners fight claims against dishonest contractors who do not provide work in a workmenlike manner and refuse to come back and fix their work. I will use Mr Baughn to oversee my next shingle roof installation. I consider his experience and opinion to be invaluable in works related to the roofing trade. I know with him there, there will be no funny business from the trades who think they can do poor work and demand payment without doing the work right.

SUPER STAR

I had what I suspected was a rogue roofer doing work for me a few weeks ago. I needed an independent/impartial review of the roofing work that had been undertaken. Dave did his review promptly and professionally and provided me with his comments on the quality of the roofing work that had been undertaken.
There should be more Dave's in this world and we should all use skilled roofing inspectors like Dave more often. Thank you.

Highly recommend

We had Dave inspect our attic for moisture and mold and provide recommendations for next steps. His services were excellent and he was punctual, knowledgable, efficient, thorough, friendly, and reasonably priced. Highly recommend.

Roof Inspection excellence!

Dave was fantastic - quick response, did what he said, when he said - thorough inspection with minor repairs and a professional report that our stickler insurance company (Aviva) accepted without question. Thanks Dave, we would definitely use you again AND would recommend your services without hesitation!

Above and beyond

We called Dave after discovering an interior leak we suspected was related to the roof. Dave was thorough in his inspection and lovely to work with. He fixed one small issue on the spot and was willing to come back and complete the slightly more substantial work that needed to be done which we were so grateful for. Having the roof inspected gave us great peace of mind and we were so glad to find this company. Highly recommend.

Roof inspection

I had roof damage caused by a windstorm. I suspected the job done by the roofers sent by my insurance company did a poor job. Dave did an extremely thorough and comprehensive inspection and confirmed my suspicions. He then wrote an excellent report that will support my efforts to have my insurance company remediate the work. I highly recommend Dave and would not hesitate to use him again.

Your Second Opinion First And More!

Hiring Dave to do a roof inspection was the best move I made towards getting my roof fixed.
When it became obvious that my roof needed repair, I despaired as I had been taken advantage of in the past.
I decided to start with Dave so that I would know what was really needed and what was not.
Dave provided me with a comprehensive report, photographs, and his personal explanation of the work required. The roof required a few small repairs and replacement of the eavestroughs.
I discussed the work required with Dave.
As it was difficult for me to find someone to do the small repairs, Dave was able to do them as well.
He said that although he no longer does full-scale roofing, on occasion he will do repairs for his clients due to the difficulty in finding a roofer to tackle them.
I could not be more pleased with both the inspection and the repairs!
In addition, Dave also gave me invaluable advice for when the roof eventually would require complete replacement.
He would also be available once the roof was completed to make sure that the job was done right. Dave provides a complete service from start to finish.
For me, the best part was that Dave provided me with peace of mind. No longer did I have to keep second-guessing or worrying that I was being taken advantage of.
I recommend Dave wholeheartedly in every respect!

Unbiased opinion on roof work needed

I required an unbiased opinion on which repairs would be needed to my roof. I found Dave on Homestars, read the positive reviews and decided to give him a call.

Dave provided a thorough assessment of my roof and advised which items required immediate repair. He also managed to find the source of a leak that had been causing dampness around one of my windows. Dave's report was thorough and clear; pictures of the problematic areas were included.

After I had hired contractors to repair my roof, Dave returned to inspect the contractors' work and provided me an additional report detailing items that required follow-up. Again, his report was thorough and clear and pictures were provided.

Throughout the process Dave demonstrated a high level of expertise and professionalism when interacting with all parties involved in the project. Definitely recommended.

More about Independent Roof Inspection Services Ltd

Meet the Independent Roof Inspection Team Servicing the GTA
At Independent Roof Inspection Services, we were salesman, estimators, and roofers. Roofing was what we did. We all climbed up ladders, loaded building materials and made a mess. However, when we were done, the property was always thoroughly cleaned up and the roofs didn’t leak anymore. We had a lot of satisfied customers but after years of being roofers, it was time for us to finally try something new. Because owner Dave Baughn had seen many mistakes and bad contractors throughout his years in roofing, he decided something needed to be done – hence, Independent Roof Inspection Services.

Independent Roof Inspection Services is not a roofing company offering to do inspections on the side. As an independent roof inspector, we offer our inspection services at affordable rates to homeowners, property managers, real estate companies, developers and landlords of residential, commercial and industrial properties across the Greater Toronto Area. Our detailed roof inspection reports describe the existing waterproofing, its age and condition, and all of your available options. While you may need to completely replace your roof, other times you might not need a new roof at all. Sometimes a repair or a partial re-roof may suffice.
We inspect Commercial, Residential and Industrial properties and provide Project Management services, overseeing flat and shingle re-roofing projects including custom new-build homes.
