I'm a state of Illinois licensed home inspector available for home inspection jobs in the McHenry County and greater Chicago area.
I conduct a thorough inspection of all the major homes systems. At the end of the inspection you will get a verbal review of what i found as well as a pdf inspection report with clear photographs of the defects found and overall house and room pics emailed within 24hrs.
I use Home Gauge software which is highly respected in the industry and easy for home buyers to handle and comprehend. Reports usually received no more than 24hrs from inspection in a easy to read PDF file.
I also offer "PRE-LISTING" inspection or "WALK n TALK" inspections for about half the price of a regular inspections. Pre- listing inspections are great for getting a heads up on the items inspectors will find when you are trying to sell a home so as a home seller you will not be overwhelmed with repair items or be surprised by a large credit being asked for at closing time. Walk n talk inspections are offered when you are browsing homes and want a quick unofficial preliminary inspection to get short overview of issues you will be dealing with in a home. Both walk n talks and pre-listing inspections can be done with or without a report (either short form or traditional style offered) .
I walk roofs (within reasonable pitch and weather conditions) and accessible attic and crawl spaces.
I also have a DRONE with video and camera capabilities for hard to reach roofs (if weather conditions permit).
INFRARED CAMERA (thermal imagery) used as needed for no additional charge.
Your more then welcome to follow me around the house and ask any questions that may come up as I go about my inspection or I can complete the inspection while you are at work with a phone call review after so you don't have to take a day off work.
Call, text or email to set up a time for an inspection. Also email or see website below for a sample report and sample of my inspection contract.
