Did a great job repairing a leak from the night before. Worked quickly and effectively adding flashing, and caulking a crack in my chimney. Fair price and guaranteed his work. Would recommend!

We were extremely pleased with Mr. Wolf's home inspection. He arrived promptly and prepared. He began with the roof and chimney, inspected the exterior of the property, did a detailed inspection of the electrical, furnace, a/c, structure, plumbing, etc. He went above and beyond what we expected and was at our home for nearly two hours. His answers to our questions were detailed. Professional demeanor. I would suggest his services to a friend or colleague.

We had an excellent experience with Roland! ! ! !! I plan on using him in the future if we purchase property. I had him run through my current house to tell me what absolutely NEEDED to be fixed in order to put it on the market to sell and what could be fixed. He also adjusted to price to fit what I was looking for (above). I was able to follow him around and take my own notes while he pointed out each thing that HAD to be fixed, he recommended being fixed, if I was his client buying the house, and what other inspectors may point out. Learning these different perspectives helped me to understand what I need to have completed. This is the first time I have ever done this and Roland explained A LOT of things to me that I didn't even know. He took the time to answer ALL my questions and even told me ideas of how I could fix some of my issues. He was very friendly and I felt very comfortable asking many questions, that I should probably know. I am beyond GRATEFUL for his knowledge and help with our home inspection. If we end up fixing things selling and buying a new house, I plan on using Roland to inspect our potential new house. THANK YOU ROLAND ! ! ! !

This was an experience full of ups and downs. The gentleman walked in, looked at our fireplace for 2 minutes and said, "That will be $99." We were perplexed that this was the extent of the inspection. They went on though, to thoroughly clean the fireplace and he went outside to inspect the chimney as well. We also had them install gas logs in our fireplace. They had to remove an existing stubborn piece from the fireplace that was rusted on. We tried to suggest a product that we had in our home to remove the rust and were told, "That will never work." They continued to pry at the rusty pipe until we were told they were going to have to break it, go into our drywall and replace it (for an additional cost). Finally, we asked them to please try the product, they did and the pipe came right off! This success was followed by, "Wow that must have been a fluke! It couldn't have been this product." After this, they quickly set everything else up and offered to give us some rocks to finish off the look of our fireplace. Everything worked perfectly. So... we love the end result and everything works perfectly...just some interesting interactions along the way.

I have no complaints about David and his service. He did a great job and was very patient with me while I followed him throughout the house asking questions and him addressing all of my concerns. I would definitely recommend David and Master Home Inspectors for your inspection needs.

I hired Lyndell to install a shower surround kit in my master bathroom and ended up hiring him to do so much more! He was able to repair some pesky woodpecker damage on my chimney chase. He noticed some loose cedar siding and repaired that as well. The chimney looks great and is better than the original construction. He came in under budget and was very thorough with his work. Couldn't be happier. The shower kit and door kit installation went just a smoothly. Lyndell performed a very "clean demolition, made some structural repairs and installed the shower kit with a high level of craftsmanship and care for my home. The shower surround also came in under budget and looks (and works) great! I'm very pleased with the work he performed at my house. Side note: take the time to get to know Lyndell...he is capable of more than you think. His background is amazing and his work ethic is refreshing. I'm planning on hiring Lyndell for future projects at my new home.

Bruce was a pleasure to work with. He was punctual, professional and thorough. He gave us honest feedback and explained everything to us in a way that we could understand. He was good at summarizing the big picture as far as the overall condition of the home. We can now move forward confident in our purchase. I have worked with other inspectors and Bruce is by far the best. Highly recommend!

Chimney Monkey is excellent! They responded to me right away, made an appointment soon after I called, and they showed up not only to clean my gutters, but also power washed the house. They didn't leave a mess, and took photos of where my gutter needs a replacement. I would recommend them to anyone- quality work, polite, professional, and they work FAST

John and Charles from Windy Chimney Services where great. They where very knowledgeable & professional when they came to my home to install a chimney damper. They first diagnosed that the one I had was rusted & that we needed a new one. They made sure to recommend the one that would best work for our chimney. The damper had a lifetime warranty & they also included lifetime labor with that damper. I would use Windy City Chimney Services every year now to sweep my chimney & would recommend it them to anyone.

Leon and his staff arrived early and were professional and friendly. They were very thorough and took time to explain mechanisms and processes to my husband. We had a report within 24 hours that included pictures and recommendations. They were 50-100 less than what I was quoted from the inspectors recommended by my realtor.

Absolutely phenomenal work! Mr. Sabree was incredibly thorough, very professional, and left no stone unturned. In addition, his price was the most reasonable of anyone else that quoted me. Will definitely recommend to anyone I meet looking for an inspector.

Zach Vogt Masonry was fantastic, prompt and professional. I will definitely hire them again for tuck pointing & concrete sill work. The owner went above & beyond when dealing with us. Our chimney has never looked so good. The mortar match is great (our house is almost 80 years old) and that was important to me. Choose Zach for all of your masonry needs.

Love them. I had them out for an estimate on masonry which I had already got about 4 other est. The bids were all over the place and nobody could tell me why. The gentlemen from A-1 took the time to sit down with me and go over why certain people were saying one thing and the others something completely different. In the end I chose to use A-1 and I was so glad that I did. The chimney turned out amazing and I haven't had any problems with it since.

I purchased a 3-unit building, concerned about getting a good inspector. Reese was recommended to me and the quality of service I received was excellent. He was very detailed and thorough with his inspection and explained many things along the way. I would definitely use him again for my next property!

Great company quality work. Had a chimney falling apart completely Robert came with quality work with the fair price he restored my chimney and replaced the cap and flute. I was impressed he was able to reuse almost every original brick so saved me cost in buying brick. Overall 5 star Company and Robert has a professionalisim to him and has a great work ethic. He knows what hes doing.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
