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.

Independent roof Inspection

We contacted this company seeking an independent assessment of continual roofing issues we have been experiencing. Dave has been out on multiple occasions and has taken the time to explain his review findings in great detail. This will be an ongoing issue with the initial roofers. We have confidence that Dave will continue to follow-up and modify his initial report as repair work is being done. This company has been able to deal with the roofers in a professional and non-confrontation matter. We don't know at this point where we will end up, but we are confident that this company will be there providing advice and guidance.

flat roof and scupper inspection

New Build and Flat roof. Dave found issues that the builder's contractor did not adequately complete. We turned the report which included pictures over to the builder.
Due to Covid-19 and our senior status Dave had to come in to the house get onto balconies not accessible by ladder to inspect the scuppers and the floors. He came up in a Hazmat suit as not to possibly infect anyone (he was not sick). We appreciated his diligence and thoughtful approach.
He also had to come a second time to complete the inspection and did not charge for it.
This Man and his helper are Pros.
I would definitely call him again. I probably will sometime down the road.
Thanks Dave

They saved my money

Independent Roof Inspection Services saved me about 2000 dollars. I had a conversation with another roofing company previously and they offered me price about 5000 dollars for complete repair of my roof. Very professional job!

Efficient Professional Service

We own a commercial property flat roof that is 50 years old and desperately needed replacement. We finally hired our roofers to undergo the big expense and wanted to ensure that the job was done properly. We decided to hire an independent roof inspector and Dave at IRIS had great homestar reviews.
Dave was immediately receptive to our emails. Responded efficiently. Came to visit. Took plenty of photos. Shared a thorough report and followed up to ensure the roofing contractor addressed the issues he found. We would highly recommend Dave and his services at IRIS

IRIS saved me $5,000

IRIS saved me over $5,000.

Are you like me, getting multiple roof quotes from multiple roofing companies, unsure of what repairs are truly needed and what’s being added to pad the estimates?

I got my roof replaced 6 years ago, it was a shoddy job done by a shoddy roof company that will remain unnamed. Fast forward to 6 years later and I’ve got leaks. I call 3 separate roofing companies, all quotes say to replace the roof and start over, costs ranging $4-$5k. Ok, I need to call my original roofers, but before I do, I need to know what’s really going on with my roof.

I found IRIS, and like an angel from heaven they descended upon my roof to give me the facts on what the issue was. Caulking, flashing, minor weaving and I should be golden. I called the old roofers and they came out to fix for free. At least there’s some justice in this world.

IRIS once again returned and gave the OK. IRIS saved me $5,000. Are you really going to blindly spend thousands on your roof without calling IRIS? if you are ever in doubt about your roof, do yourself and your wallet a favor and call IRIS.

Inspection and repair

Dave is a gentleman and a professional. The only complaints you'll get about him are from so-called roofing professionals whose work Dave helps to fix. He saved me tens of thousands of dollars by providing a simple and easily understood approach to fixing my problems. He performed above my expectations, was on time, courteous, and committed to solving the issue at hand. Would hire him again in an instant.

Make sure you get an expert roof inspection with IRIS!

I had a new roof installed and I was concerned about whether the work had been done properly by the roofing company. I contacted Dave at IRIS to get an independent expert opinion. He came out promptly to inspect the roof and found deficiencies which he documented in his report. The roofing company came back to fix the issues, and Dave and his partner, Danny made sure that the repairs were properly done. Dave and Danny are highly professional, experienced and knowledgeable. Having an independent roofing inspection is an absolute necessity when having your roof done and I recommend IRIS without hesitation.

Roof Inspection

I reached out to Dave to get an independent roof inspection after another company had told me I needed to replace my roof. He responded to my request and we had several email conversations first so that I could get clear on what was involved, the cost and why I would hire him in the first place.

Dave showed up on time and inspected my roof and attic. He took pictures and provided me with a comprehensive report. He made suggestions and provided an estimate of the remaining life for the roof. He told me I did not need to replace the roof yet. I was able to take his report and find a roofer to make the repairs.

Dave is easy to work with, knowledgeable and approachable. I definitely recommend him when you are looking for an honest, objective second opinion.

More about Independent Roof Inspection Services

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.
