How It Works

When you work with us, you’ll get a Certified Roof Care Specialist® who has passed our rigorous training program known as NIR University®. They’ll be permanently assigned to your building and will learn all there is to know about your roof. Your Specialist will be ready to provide continuous care to your roof and handle emergencies immediately to help you obtain the maximum return from your investment.

We will never recommend replacing your commercial roof unless it’s essential to protect your building. It’s our job to protect your investment with regular inspections and maintenance, prompt repairs, and select improvements that add value to your building.

Timothy K. Lynn

Founder & Executive Chairman

In 1980, Timothy K. Lynn founded the Northern Illinois Roofing Company, which would eventually become the NIR Roof Care® of today. Mr. Lynn discovered that old line roofing companies were replacing roofs with 30% of the roof’s useful life left, costing tens of thousands of dollars to building owners.

Recognizing the industry’s “Break, Fix, Replace” model wasn’t in the customer’s best interest, Timothy transformed NIR from the ground up to a proactive business model—the “Original Roof Care Plan”—leading to the NIR Roof Management System® that gives NIR customers a truly single source for all of their roofing needs at a fractions of the cost.

Lynn authored and published The NIR Difference and NEXT STEP – How to Start Living Intentionally and Discover What God Really Wants for Your Life. Through the NEXT STEP system, Lynn helps people put faith into action through the four pillars, which consist of Faith, Self, Family, and Life’s work, providing individuals tools to take action to lead them towards a fulfilling life of achieving their goals and dreams.
