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.

Flat roof inspection

I noticed signs of external water damage and feared the worst.

Dave had done some work for me a couple of years ago and I reached out to him. He offered to look at my roof over the weekend and identified a couple of minor issues (loose/dislodged flashing and some caulking gaps) that he fixed himself.

I find Dave to be very knowledgeable, responsive and helpful.

Thanks Dave

Roof inspection

Had a small leak from the window pane. I had no clue about roofs so I hired Dave so I would know exactly what the problem was. He was quick, efficient and professional. He created a detailed report with pictures. He was able to fix the leak and recommend repairs I should do immediately and when I should start considering replacing the roof which I was relieved to learn would be 5 years. When I was having trouble finding a roofing company willing to come out in January for repairs only he made a recommendation for a company that was also great. Thanks Dave

Independent Roof Inspection

My roof needed work - new shingles and some slate repairs - but I received different opinions and prices from roofing companies. So I decided to get an independent assessment.
Independent Roof Inspection Services provided great service. Dave inspected my roof and provided a detailed report with photos, advising what needed to be done. He gave me advice on selecting a roofing company, and once the work started, he monitored the company's progress and communicated with the contractors in a professional way on site. He was also available by phone and email when I had questions. After the job was done, Dave made a final inspection and confirmed that the work had been completed properly.
Independent Roof Inspection Services did an excellent job for me, and I highly recommend them.

Post Roofing Inspection

Following the install of my new roof and finding that a rotted piece of plywood had been shingled over and not replaced, I was concerned that there may be other issues.
I searched around and found IRIS. I spoke with Dave, explained the situation and he and his colleague came by on 3 separate occasions. He ensured any issues were identified, relayed concerns to the roofing company (Inspection Report), and returned to inspect the adjustments and repairs that were subsequently done.
I was so glad to have someone in my corner to help me. It was such a big relief that Dave took my concerns into real consideration and assisted me along the way. I would definitely recommend this Company. Not only is Dave knowledgeable, prompt and accessible, he is a kind a considerate guy.

Flat roof inspection

Had a new flat roof installed over our garage but, from the start, it was defective and roofer was resisting repair/replacement. Contacted Dave who, within just a few days, inspected the roof, wrote an excellent appraisal with photos, and made recommendations. I gave this to the roofer and -- what do you know -- they agreed to replace the roof! But for Dave's report, I doubt that this would have been the outcome. I highly recommend Independent Roof Inspection Services: courteous, prompt and completely independent and reliable evaluation.

Roof inspection

Dave went the extra mile for me and I'm pleased to recommend him. His assistant was very helpful as well. He was able to correctly identify flaws in the past roofers work.

Roof Inspection and Repair

I've been having a leak get into the house every winter when snow melts. Dave came over and managed to identify the area of the on-going problem in a short amount of time and suggested a great fix. Very happy with his service and recommend for anyone with roofing issues.

Fall Roof Inspection

I have a house with a combined flat roof and peak roof, and 5-years ago I had the Independent Roof Inspection Services (IRIS) inspect my roof, and their advice was that after we completed the minor repairs they recommended we should have the roof inspected again in 5-years. We used IRIS for these minor repairs back then.

As they say, when you receive good advice you should take it. We had IRIS come back to inspect my roof and they identified some minor repairs that should be made. And, similar to last time, we used IRIS for these minor repairs.

What is great is that IRIS indicated that my roof (flat and peaked) should be good for at lease another 5-years. And yes, I will be having them back at that time before I make any decision on replacing our roof.

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.
