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!
Robert had great communication and was able to get out before the holiday to complete a fireplace cleaning and inspection. He was extremely knowledgeable and went over everything with me - this was a big pro, as I have never owned a home with a fireplace. The price was on par with other companies and Robert was a pleasure to do business with. I will definitely utilize McHenry Chimney Service for any future cleaning and repairs; I would recommend you do the same.
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.
Emerson Explained everything to me and my Husband. He took His time in every aspect. We are first time homebuyers, and he told us everything in detail. I highly recommend him to anyone. What a great Guy!!! Thanks so much Emerson:) Couldn't have asked for a better home inspector than him!
Could not ask for a better inspector/inspection. Don was very detailed and thorough. I really can not say enough of how impressed we were with his work. He did 2 rather large houses in the same day for us totaling nearly 10 hours. I have already recommended him to many of my friends that are in need of inspection services. I rarely recommend anything to my friends let alone write an online review like this. I wouldn't bother looking elsewhere for another home inspection. If I needed another, I would hire Don in a second.
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 ! ! ! !
The whole experience went very well. They arrived to clean and inspect our chimney and were very courteous and clean. I would use Chicago Fireplace and Chimney again!
Phil was the best. A true professional and expert! Will hire again to annually clean and inspect chimney!
Dave accommodated a Sunday inspection request only a few days out, which was fantastic. He sent his (InterNACHI-standard) contract ahead of time and arrived to the property on time. He took his time, appeared to be very thorough, and produced an electronic report a few hours later the same day. All of this earns him five stars! The only thing I would point out is that he's not particularly vocal during the inspection. If you're the type of person that wants to understand every single thing he's looking at while it's happening, he may not be a fit for you. On the other hand, some inspectors cause people new to home buying a lot of stress by pointing out all of the things that are less-than-perfect--Dave's calm demeanor and quiet approach may be just right for such a person. One last thing, his quote was extremely reasonable, well under what the price point I had been told to expect!
Tuckpointing chimney. Great follow up. Quick service. Provides 15-year warranty.
Hired F.A.C.T.S. for a fireplace and chimney inspection. Very knowledgeable crew. Owner was more than willing to fit us into the schedule with relatively short notice.
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!
This woman was extraordinary in beast mode and provided the most defined and reputable report I have ever read or seen in my history of purchasing homes. Beverly is thorough, precise, and relevant. She has an eagle's eye for spotting right on for issues or situations you could not even imagine that may happen in a home. I will recommend her to any/all of my colleagues for home inspections, because she helps protect the interest of the buyer which is also a teaching moment in which I learned a lot.. looking forward in working with her in the future. Thank you again Beverly.
Kevin was great, very honest, personable and trust worthy. We used him to onstall our chimney cap. Will definitely use him again for future projects.
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.
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.
The multiple inspections that Chicago Home and Building Inspectors LLC did for me were all educational experiences. I accrued a wealth of knowledge regarding the inspection process and what defects I should be looking for when considering the purchase of real estate.
I hired Mr. Hansen to inspect a home I was considering to purchase. He promptly and honestly responded to several qualifying questions which confirmed his qualifications and experience. At the site, he had an eye for details most inspectors would miss - especially decks! He takes pride in his work and took his time to make sure nothing was missed. In fact, he came back a second time just to reconfirm his measurements and maintain credibility with all stakeholders. The report took a few iterations but came out perfect in the end. I would trust his service again and would highly recommend him to others as well.
Excellent inspector, you won't be disappointed
I would highly recommend My Home Inspection Company. Kirk the inspector worked with our schedule, he was very courteous and explained ever steep of the inspection in terms that we could understand. He spent over two hours checking our home from top to bottom. He was very knowledgeable about all the systems in our home. We feel very comfortable in recommending My Home Inspection Company to anyone that is buying a new home. Jean
I provide professional, courteous, and knowledgeable service. Always making sure client understands any problems within the home.
