Roof Review

IRIS was professional and educated at addressing our complex roofing project. Recommend IRIS to preview and review roofing projects to ensure the long term integrity of the roof. We have recommended David to others that have also had a favourable experience.

Roof Inspections

In the course of some other work on my house we discovered some serious problems with the roof (which had been replaced just two years prior). I needed a roof inspector to come out quickly and give me a thorough and unbiased evaluation of the roof work that had been done. I was lucky to find Dave who came out on very short notice and prepared a detailed report with specific recommendations. Not only did Dave analyze the potential sources of my roof problem, he also identified a number of other issues with the recent roof installation. He patiently answered all my questions and advised me on what I needed to do to correct the problems. Roof work is expensive and something most of us do maybe once or twice in our lifetimes, so the average person does not know a lot about the technicalities of roofing. We also don't climb on our roofs, so we do not know if the roofer did a good job. It is definitely worthwhile to have an independent adviser like Dave to help you evaluate roofing quotes and assess quality of work.

New House Roof Inspection

I am in the process of building a new house. We encountered a roof leak and the contractors (roofer & aluminum guys) were not being cooperative in trying to locate and fix the issue. They were pointing fingers at one another. I contacted David @ IRIS and he came promptly, went on the roof, and identified a several quality issues with both the roofer & aluminum contractors. He wrote an independent report and also facilitated a discussion with the roofer. The key to hiring David was to have an unbiased opinion and report to show the contractors what needs to be fixed. Home inspectors will not go on your roof to find installation defects like IRIS could do. Thanks, David!

House Roof Inspection

Dave was a pleasure to deal with, a very informed and nice guy. I wanted an impartial inspection, since I'm a new home owner and wanted to learn about the condition of our old roof, without any sales (scare) tactics or up-sells. Dave made a full report of the roof condition, what the priority fixes were, what could wait, and even gave me some material samples to know what to look for. I feel like I had a small course in roofing, and feel more informed - well worth the price.

finding a leak on a commercial flat roof

I had a leak on a commercial flat roof. David found the two locations that caused the leak and recommended how to fix them, which I relayed to my roofer. He arrived on time, and answered all my questions.

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.
