The state of Illinois requires its home inspectors to adhere to a certain guidelines or Standards of Practice. I encourage my clients to download and read the standard of practice to know what will be inspected on your home.  The scope of work may be modified by the client and inspector prior to the inspection process, and generally includes but is not limited to the following a visual inspection of the following:


  • roof, vents, flashing and trim

Dave was able to work with me at very short notice and in a stressful scheduling situation. He showed up early to the property and very thoroughly inspected the home. For a very reasonable inspection fee, he alerted me to several very serious issues with the property that I hadn't noticed on my own inspection of the property. In addition, I ordered a radon test through his company, and when the homeowners tampered with the test, he alerted me to their tampering and quickly offered to run the test again to fit it into the 5 day inspection window. He is incredibly easy and pleasant to work with and did very thorough, professional work. I would recommend him to anyone in the area looking for a home inspector and will use his services again in the future myself!
