    BRT Home Inspections & Radon Testing
    David was thorough, professional, on-time. Our newly installed radon mitigation system was checked for any defects and the radon levels were tested. Explanations were given for how equipment was set up. Davis is a very knowledgeable person with an impressive background and credentials.

    BRT Home Inspections & Radon Testing
    Dave was our 6th home inspector. He is the 1st inspector we are setisfied. He was not like other inspectors with fast work and give a report (those report are hard to understand) He checked in detail and his report is so oganized. It is easy to understand with pictures and explanations. I highly recommend him.

    ARC INSULATION
    The representatives arrived as scheduled, performed thorough evaluation of attic insulation/ mold issues (including thermal inspection), another evaluator checked the home for energy efficiency to see if we could qualify for rebates, technicians arrived as scheduled and did the work and clean-up. Very professional all the way through. They even took pictures of the completed work in the attic to show us so we wouldn't have to crawl up there.

    At Home Inspections, Inc.
    I have had Tim inspect two properties in the past month as I search for a forever home. The first inspection revealed multiple issues and saved me from making a bad purchase. The 2nd home inspection was just finished and I had the report the same day and am ready to move forward with negotiations as the outcome was very different from the first property. Tim was very thorough and patient and I learned quite a bit. I read through the entire report and it was very clear and served to reinforced what he went over with me at the property. I can also use it as a guide line for maintenance going forward. Emma was also very helpful and thorough, and I came away feeling like we had known each other for a long time. Go Team Tim and Emma!

    Heartland Home Inspections
    I have employed Heartland Home Inspections for two apartment inspections and worked both times with Henry Sander (Hank). I am happy I did that, as Hank with his well trained eye spotted some issues with first apartment that save me a lot of money I���d later need to invest to fix those issues. He arrived sharp on time and was very knowledgeable and professional. He answered all questions I had and soon after inspection was done has provided a detail report with all findings and suggestions. Without any doubt, I���ll recommend Hank to anyone who is looking to buy a home or apartment. Thanks Hank!

    Kolb Home Inspections LLC
    Chris was very knowledgeable, came on time, and did a thorough inspection. He explained a few features of the house and responded promptly to questions subsequent to receiving the inspection report. His charge was very reasonable.

    Kerfin Inspections Inc
    This is going to be a long post, but people who are buying or selling their homes need to know about how home inspection is supposed to work. First, though, some information about me. I was the seller of a home in Naperville, and Kerfin Inspections did the inspection for a buyer. Also, I happen to know a lot about home inspection because I was married for 10 years to someone who owns a residential/business inspection company in Miami (BIS). Kerfin Inspections is a terrible company to hire for your home inspection. Home inspectors are like a lot of other businesses: they use a pre-made form for every job, and often they will copy and paste the same text into the same areas over and over because it's usually the same for every job. This holds true for home inspectors. If anyone wants a copy of the report I'm about to discuss, please contact me through Angie's List and I will be happy to email it to you. The entire point of getting your home inspected is to protect your investment. Buying a home is one of the biggest investments in your life. Kerfin Inspection's started off right away with a shoddy description of my basement which offered zero value to their client. Here's the description: "Recommend install a code compliant egress window in the basement for fire safety.NO inspection performed on the finished basement concrete foundation. I cannot determine if any defects exist or if leaking cracks exist. Also, I cannot determine if any flooding or moisture penetration will occur. I recommend you look at the sellers disclosures if any water penetration exists. Please read this: I cannot guarantee that your basement or crawl space will never take in water, flood, leak, or if cracks will start leaking. Also, I recommend you get the current sellers disclosures to see if any mention of leaks or flooding exists or occurred. The basement flooding is at your own risk and Kerfin Inspections does not warranty leaks or flooding will not occur. Please read this: I cannot determine if window wells will fill with water and enter the house, also, I cannot determine if drains exist and or if they are covered. I recommend install drains in all window wells and divert to a drain tile system. If a drain tile system does not exist in the house I recommend you install one. Also, I recommend install rigid window well covers for safety. Recommend install a properly sized egress window in the basement for fire safety. I cannot determine when the basement will leak." Sounds like a disclaimer, right? Looks like it could be copy and paste, right? That's because it is. My home has two basement egresses with window well covers. My basement has no cracks. Moreover, and this is really the point of the entire review: What's the point of hiring and paying for a home inspector if they can't even determine if the basement in a house is good or not? It gets better. As near as I can tell, this is the only actual custom text the inspector actually entered into his report: "Appears to be a termite trap in the ground in front of the garage. Divert gutters and sump away from the house." There's a picture of the "termite trap" in front of the garage in the report. And I'm sorry, but this was ridiculous: IT WAS A PICTURE OF THE UNDERGROUND DRAIN COVER FOR THE GUTTER, WHICH WAS DIVERTED AWAY FROM THE HOUSE. Building inspectors are supposed to get certified to perform termite inspections. This guy can't tell the difference between a termite trap and an underground drain cover. "The microwave exhaust does not vent to the exterior. Recommend you test all appliances on your final walk through for proper operation, also, please know that Kerfin Inspections is not a warranty company and recommend you get a home warranty." Thanks. You're a home inspector and you can't even check the major appliances to see if they're working? "Please read this: I cannot determine if any plumbing leaks in walls, ceilings, if mold exists behind wall paper, or if bathroom vents vent to the exterior or if current leaks exist in cabinets where they are filled with current owners belongings. The water heater is older and expect to replace it at any time." Any good building inspector should be able to tell you if there's mold in your home. It literally costs between $5-$15 to swab for mold and send it out to a company to check for mold. And building inspectors LOVE talking about mold and leaks, because it's where they're seen as most valuable to people who don't know better. It's important to know if there's mold in your home, even though only 1% of all mold is actually deadly to humans, and the other 99% is just a nuisance that goes away as soon as you take care of the source of moisture. Also, my water heater was new. Anyway, don't use this service. Nuts.

    At Home Inspections, Inc.
    Jeff Lisse did our inspection and I would recommend him to anyone. Extremely thorough and explained all things to us in a way we could understand. Months after our inspection I had some ventilation issues with a recessed light and Jeff quickly answered all my questions and even came out to help fix the problem. He's gone above and beyond and I highly recommend.

    Inspect, Inc.
    I can't say enough of how incredible Mike was. He is very thorough and personable. He'll answer all your questions and remain available after he delivers the report. He got us the full report less than 24 hours after our inspection. He always educates us on what we don't know. He's got great tips for maintaining your home. He helps understand the house as an entire organism. I would use Mike again if we need his services.

    Shelter Home Inspections, LLC
    Everything went really well. EJ was on time and moved along at a good pace while during the inspection. He performed all tasks we expected along with climbing into some tight places for further inspection, getting rather dirty along the way. Would recommend and hire again.
