About

Within five minutes of the home inspection process, we knew we had hired the right individual for the job. Frank completed a very thorough inspection and did not hesitate to point out the positive as well as the flaws in the property. He took his time and explained everything. Thanks to Frank, we learned so much about the property. I highly recommend Frank. As a first time homebuyer, not only did he make us feel comfortable, but he answered all of our questions with ease. Thank you Frank for your honesty and flexibility, we will definitely give you a call again for the next inspection!

It was a hard decision there were tons of great candidates that responded within minutes! I chose Mr. Wolf. Mr. Wolf was early and checked every nook and cranny of the house. He answered all of our questions and understood our concerns as first time homebuyers. We were given a binder of information regarding the home inspection.

About

Don is very personable and easy to talk to. He was very thorough with his inspection of every aspect of the home. The very next day he provided me with a detailed report with pictures of every thing he found. If there was a loose face plate on an outlet, he noted it. Not only did his report aid me in the decision to move forward with my purchase, he also created a very organized list of things I need to fix when I do move into the house. I will recommend him to anyone who needs a home inspection.

About

With this being my first home buying experience, I did not know what to expect, but I am very happy that I selected Master Home Inspectors!! I was sold on the length of experience alone, before I even met with the inspector. The home inspection itself, was informative and very thorough. Every process was explained to me patiently, before, and during the walk through inspection of the home. David Mcmasters made me feel very comfortable during the inspection process. My questions were encouraged and welcomed. Each question or concern I had was professionally addressed, and explained in a knowledgeable manner. The information and feedback provided by Mr. Mcmasters was informative and detailed for me to properly understand what was being discussed. Overall service was on time, safe, friendly, and honest, which is extremely important when deciding to invest into a home. I would definitely recommend and refer David Mcmasters with Master Home Inspectors for future business and services. David Mcmasters is the true definition of service with a smile. Thanks again!

I'm in the process of buying my first home, and I hired Ed to do the home inspection. The inspection lasted approximately 3 hours. Ed's inspection was thorough, and he was very professional. Ed was comfortable with me watching him and answered questions I had. I would definitely recommend Ed to anyone looking for a property inspector.

Dan was very helpful when I called to setup an inspection and felt that Christi would be the best fit for the job because of her background (architect) and the location of the property. When she showed up she was ready to go and inspected the outside of the property as thoroughly as she did the inside. She took over 2.5hrs to complete the inspection. She answered all my questions and gave me very helpful information. The actual report was so much more than I expected and helped me negotiate a better deal with the sellers. I highly recommend Domicile Consulting for your inspection needs! K. Shorewood, IL

Hello. Are you leery of the term handyman? Well, so am I. I have been a home remodeling professional for 15 years. My pricing is extremely reasonable and more than competitive. In most all cases, I provide a firm written quote, rather than just charge by the hour. I'm honest and dependable, and perform top-quality work at an affordable price. Unlike many people who offer this service, a cheap or competitive price means cutting corners, using inferior material, or flat out doing the job wrong. Not only will you be satisfied with my work, but it will be, without exception, done right the first time. Do you have a listing that needs to have work done prior to an actual open house? Have you had an inspection completed, and now the prospective buyer will only sign contracts contingent on repairs being completed? Do you buy properties to resell and need a qualified contractor to get the work done in a very timely manner? See some of what I can do for you: - Kitchen remodeling - Bathroom remodeling - Decks - Door installation (interior and exterior) - Door repair (interior and exterior) - Gutter cleaning - Gutter repair - Drywall - Laminate flooring - Tile - Heating and cooling - Plumbing - Electrical - Carpentry - Painting - Basements - Safety modifications for disabled or elderly - Seal coating - Shelving - Closet organizers - Storage rooms - Shed installation - Sprinkler systems - Swing set installation - Window repair - Inspections and much, much more Company credentials: - Insured beyond government standards - Permits will be obtained where/when necessary - Only the best-quality materials available will be used - We do not cut corners; we only use the best practices to complete your job - References and pictures are available upon request - All labor is guaranteed for a minimum of 1 year - All materials provided are guaranteed for a minimum of 1 year - 15+ years of experience in H.V.A.C. and home remodeling Note: Inspections I perform are not State of Illinois certified home inspections. I will inspect a home at a customer's request and provide a written professional contractor's opinion as to the state and condition of the home in question, and upon request, provide approximate cost of repair (if needed) for a small fee (this is not the same as an in-home estimate). Landlords and property managers: - I provide annual inspections to make sure the property is up to date and repairs get taken care of before the local authority performs their inspection. - I provide remodeling services for that new income property. - I provide clean-out and get-ready services for that next tenant. - I can help you maximize your income potential from each property with economical remodel and repair solutions. - I also provide 24-hour emergency on-call service for landlords for their rental properties.

About

I have been performing professional home inspections since 1989. My specialty is customer service. I like to treat every inspection and every client like you are family. There are a lot of inspectors in the marketplace, but how many of them have been making this their career for over 22 years? Customers will always say how happy they were with the inspection, but how many of them remember the inspector? My clients have been using me and referring me for over 22 years, and can't wait to share the experience with everyone they know.

About

A home inspection is a visual inspection of the roof, exterior walls, foundation, structure, electrical, plumbing and heating and cooling systems of the home. A detailed report is generated on a laptop and e-mailed to the clients. I have 30 years of experience as a building inspector. I have 9 certifications with the International Code Council in building, electrical, plumbing and mechanical inspections. I am state licensed in both home inspection and radon measurement testing. The customers like that the reports are generated and e-mailed to all interested parties on the same day. I inspect to protect you, your family and your investment.
