Buying a home is a very stressful process, but Dave and Charlie made the home inspection part of the process painless. First, Charlie was very responsive from the get-go. The home inspection process was explained clearly from the beginning and the costs were competitive. After scheduling, we found out we could not get access to the home on the scheduled day, and Dave and Charlie were very accommodating with the schedule change we had to make. During the actual home inspection, Dave was very thorough throughout the whole inspection. He did not make us feel rushed throughout the process, and took the time to explain what he was checking, why he was checking it, and the results. It is very rare to find such a genuine company.

Dave was patient with us as first-time home-buyers. He was very informative and thorough. Thanks to Charlie for coming out with that drone to look at the roof and also looking at the sewer lines. We feel confident we'll be able to make an informed decision. We definitely recommend their services if you want the best. We were the only inspection Dave did today and our report will be done today!

Dave from Chicagoland Home Inspectors inspected a home I'm in the process of buying. The inspection was thorough and Dave was very knowledgeable on all aspects of the house. Second time I've used CHI with both experiences being outstanding.

We had Dave come to inspect our potential new home as part of the buying process. As first time buyers, we were so lucky to have such a fantastic and thorough person do the inspection. He did a great job explaining his findings and things we should look out for in the future. He took his time and evaluated everything that needed to be looked at in extreme detail. He was very respectful of the property in the home and was very careful to leave the home in the exact condition it was when he arrived. His report was extremely thorough and invaluable to our home buying process.

Their service is truly remarkable! I was buying my forever home in Glenview and needed an inspection that was detailed and would cover every single thing so I got their home inspection, mold test, chimney inspection and sewer scope. This is my first time buying a house in the states and both Dave and Charlie came out for us and Dave spent almost 7 hours looking at everything in detail and explaining to me best practices as well, so I could keep things maintained in the future. I cannot thank Dave enough for the sincere effort he put in our inspection, he went into the crawl spaces which was tough for him cause he is a big guy 🙂 and even the far corners of the attic and guess what! it was all worth it because he found there was a hole in the roof in the far corner of the attic which even the seller did not know about and it was leaking water and rotting the rafters. Charlie did our chimney and mold inspection and Mark came did the sewer scope, they had to make adjustments for us because of my availability and the sellers and I was more than happy I hired these professionals to do the job. We did not close on that house but I'm definitely going to hire these guys again on the next house that I need inspected.

I cannot speak highly enough about Dave and Charles. They were incredibly thorough throughout the inspection and walked me through every problem and risk (as well as future items that I should look out for). They set aside all of my worries with how expertly they looked into each nook and cranny during the home inspection. One huge plus for me was that fact that they utilize both thermal imaging cameras and drones (when needed) to inspect for potential leaks and roof issues.



I will be recommending Chicagoland home inspectors to all my friends and family that are searching for a home.

Chicagoland Home Inspectors (Charley and Dave) came to our home-to-be to conduct an inspection today. As I review the report, I am appreciative of their attention to detail, and easy to navigate dynamic report, which makes it easy to identify which issues are critical and not. Photos accompany descriptions, with an easy navigation bar and filtering of issues to make review a breeze. I was even able to view photos of the roof via drone and thermal imaging to see heat loss!



I feel well prepared for my next home with this information in hand.

Let me preface this review by stating I highly recommend Chicago Home Inspectors. They exceeded my expectations in every way possible.



I found Chicago Home Inspectors initially via word of mouth. Then upon perusing their reviews and reading report after report glowing about their services, along with employee bios, I booked owner Charlie Bellafontaine to do our inspection. On the date of the inspection, I arrived 15 minutes early and found Charlie was already there waiting, along with Dave Ingle. Charlie explained that Dave was a newer hire being brought up to full speed with Chicago Home Inspectors. Charlie encouraged me to stay with him or Dave throughout the process and ask any and every question I had, so that all of my concerns were voiced/answered. In addition, I could see not only the inspection process, but get immediate feedback on what was found.



Charlie immediately went up on the roof, as Dave began inspecting the foundation, siding and general outside issues. When Charlie came back to the ground, he provided me a full description (including photos) of the roof’s condition. Dave briefed Charlie on his findings as already reported to me and the tree of us completed a detailed exterior inspection.



The remainder of the time, which in total was somewhere just over three hours in length, covered every part of the house; literally from attics down to the basement. Charlie and Dave were exceptional in ensuring that I was aware of every finding (positive or nonnegative). I was extremely impressed with their use of technology in probing the home (Flir I/R gun, moisture meters, furnace/a/c combustion tools, etc. Not only did Charlie explain what each of these tools detected, but how they functioned.



At the end of the extremely thorough inspection, Charlie did a breakdown summary of what he and Dave had found and described priority order of fixes based upon if it was his own house. I found Charlie and Dave both to be very personable, extremely patient and willing to do whatever it took to inspect the house (crawling under decks, into crawl and attic spaces, et.) and clearly possessed high levels of knowledge about all systems of a home; and just as important, they explained everything in simple to understand terms.



Later the same day, I received my formal inspection report via e-mail. It was exceptionally detailed, with photo documentation of concerns, well organized by both home system, as well as priority of each repair within a given category. The report was a perfect complement to me being present for the inspection, but more importantly a meticulous record of the home for not only real estate negotiation, but for peace of mind as a buyer.



Inclosing, I cannot recommend Chicagoland Home Inspectors enough for the reasons outlined. If you are having an inspection done as a buyer, seller or any reason, this is the company for you!!

Charlie and Dave were very helpful and were always explaining things to me and answering my questions. Very friendly too. They got up on the roof, took photos with a drone and went all over the property reporting issues. The report itself was very professional and comprehensive too.

Dave is a wonderful inspector and I am glad he was able to help. Best wishes to you and your family.
