Avondale Home Inspection
Avondale is on the Northwest Side of the city. The northern border is the Addison Street from the north branch of the Chicago River in the east to Pulaski Road in the west. The neighborhood extends further west along Belmont Avenue to the Union Pacific/Northwest Line. Its southern border is Diversey Avenue from the Union Pacific/Northwest Line to the Chicago River.
The first European settler in Avondale was Abraham Harris who settled the area three years after its 1850 incorporation into Jefferson Township. In 1869, Avondale was incorporated as a village. It has been speculated that developer and Pennsylvania native John Lewis Cochran named the village in honor of the miners and rescue workers who died in the Avondale coal mine fire. Atypical for the time, Avondale was racially integrated in the nineteenth century with twenty African American families moving to the area and building Avondale’s first church in the 1880s. Avondale, along with the rest of Jefferson Township, was annexed by the City of Chicago in 1889.
It is highly recommended that you get a complete professional home inspection done on any home that you purchase in Avondale. The unique architecture and ornate Victorian homes may have surprises or complications that an experienced home inspector can identify in their home inspection report.
Avondale is also home to several Frank Loyd Right houses often featured in The Chicago Architecture Foundation’s Open House Chicago event hosted every fall.
If you are planning to attend an open house to give it a thorough inspection, don’t go in blind. There’s a whole lot you can find out about a property, either by checking it out yourself in person during the inspection or asking the on-site real estate agent (or both).
We have inspected many homes in the Avondale community, and have many years of experience with the homes in the neighborhood! Call us today to schedule a Avondale home inspection.

I had the opportunity to have Charles inspect my 106 year old home in Chicago. Charles was very knowledgeable about the different systems, masonry, and features or historic homes. He is realistic and helps explain why something is good or bad in the home. I would highly recommend Charles for any home inspection needs..
Thank you Greg. I did enjoy taking a long look at your home. I was a pleasure looking at that history.
