Roof & Attic Inspection

I had put a conditional offer on a house and needed a professional to inspect the roof & mouldy attic before making a decision. I made some phone calls, but truth be told, most inspectors won't enter a mouldy attic or climb up on a roof. Thankfully the IRIS team was willing to do both for the sake of a thorough inspection. Despite the fact that the team arrived late, I am absolutely satisfied with their work. The company's reporting is detailed and they welcome follow up questions. Dave, the owner, is lovely to chat with on the phone.

Roof and Attic Inspection

The roof on my home was done in 2002, due to faulty shingles and inadequate ventilation, I must re-shingle the roof within the next two years or less. I have had quotes from roofing companies but I never felt I was provided with an unbiased opinion I was pressured rather then informed . I called IRIS their inspection was unbiased and objective. Since the inspection I have forwarded them (IRIS) roof quotes and IRIS was accommodating in reviewing the quotes at no extra cost. Given that the roofing industry in Ontario is unregulated I welcome companies like IRIS to walk me through the vagaries of this industry.

Flat Roof Inspection

We've had difficulty with moisture around some drywall screws in the ceiling on the second floor of our "newish" house each spring for some time. We weren't sure if the issue was a leak or ventilation. Dave came by and inspected for us and determined that there were no leaks but that lack of ventilation (condensation) was the cause of the moisture issues we've seen. Not sure why our builder didn't vent the roof at the original build but we have since installed roof vents and are looking forward to dry ceilings this spring!

Roof Inspection

After heavy snow from this past winter, I wanted to know what had happened with my dual flat and peaked roof, but my house is too tall and I do not like heights.

When I saw IRIS inspecting my neighbours’ roof, I thought that is exactly what I needed. After I contacted IRIS, they immediately came and examined my roof, and attic, too. After the inspection, I received a very detailed report, which included photos of my roof and the sites to watch out for and repair, along with the expected cost for repairs. This has been incredibly useful when trying to obtain a contractor as I know what the problems are and how much a quote should be, as well as to know when in the future I will likely need to replace shingles and the flat roof.

Company Response

Thanks Bill. It's personally gratifying when I help people with roofing issues. We work for our customer, no one else.

Commercial Roof Inspection

For a commercial solar installation it is critical that we have an unbiased opinion on the remaining life of a roof prior to installing our equipment. We have used Dave at IRIS for over half a dozen projects and he is by far the most thorough and honest roof inspector that I have come across. He is very professional, prompt and answers all of my follow up questions. A pleasure to deal with and highly recommended.

Roof Inspection

David quickly and thoroughly inspected our new roof and confirmed major deficiencies in a concise report, photos included, after we noticed some visible problems. Luckily this was caught before project end - Contractor had no choice but to remedy all items to both our and David's satisfaction. We highly recommend him especially if you have any doubts that your roofing project is being done properly.

Roof Inspection

I've got a large commercial flat roof, built over 40 years ago. Every previous roofing company I've ever had has taken one look and told me the entire roof needs to be replaced immediately, at a cost of $300,000. But when I had Independent come by, they gave me other options, and found a way to keep the roof from leaking without needing a full replacement. David was able to find all of the places in the roof where leaks were occurring, and recommended a roofer fix those. The roof will now last many more years until we have the money for a full replacement.

Roof inspection

I needed advice on my old cedar shingle roof and being a single woman with absolutely no idea who to trust and what to look for in a roofer, I contacted Dave for advice. He inspected my roof, gave me a checklist of things to ask a potential roofer, and even offered to come back and check on the progress. I felt much more confident about things, knowing the basics and what questions to ask. With Dave's help I found a great roofer and I'm completely happy with my new 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.
We inspect Commercial, Residential and Industrial properties and provide Project Management services, overseeing flat and shingle re-roofing projects including custom new-build homes.
