This so called inspection service was called out to one of our many jobsites to inspect a new roof we were installing as the customer was not familiar with the process and in over his head and needed external guidance. We had performed early steps in applying membrane roofing and were in the stages of getting ready for day 2. The inspector Dave, who could not produce any certificate of qualification when pressed to do so wrote a damning report as to the work in question when it wasnt even completed. we demanded his OIRCA or CRCA or manufacturer
certification to prove he is qualified but he couldnt produce. This company is not qualified to produce engineer quality reporting , you need hire a roofing consultant firm not someone masquerading as an inspection firm, there is a difference folks the former is affiliated with the governing bodies in Ontario such as the roofing contractors association of Ontario. We are factory trained and certified installers and to tell falsehoods about our work to satisfy a concerned client and playing into the customers hands to tell them what they want to hear rather than reporting fact is not an inspection it is a fraud. We paid over 2000 in a writedown for this report so have authority to report negative reviews here.
- Company Response
We have no documentation on our files as ever inspecting a roof installed by Hutton Roofing.
As to Certification and Governing Bodies, the governing bodies referred to, OIRC and CRCA are bodies that certify roofers, and do not certify or regulate companies such as ours.
There are NO Federal or Provincial governing bodies or certifications. 'Carson Dunlop certifies home inspectors and demands that one passes the Roofing Module examination therein. We have taken that examination and passed that module.
Unfortunately, we often find that roofing applications range from sloppy to wildly deficient and that is why we advise our clients to pay for the roof only when they are happy with the job. Needless to say, that upsets the roofer.
