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.

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.

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.
