Norwood Park Home Inspection
Norwood Park encompasses the smaller neighborhoods of Big Oaks, Norwood Park East, Norwood Park West, Old Norwood Park, Oriole Park, and Union Ridge.
The community area contains the oldest extant building in Chicago, the Noble-Seymour-Crippen House, built in 1833 and greatly expanded in 1868. Organized in 1873 as a township from the adjacent townships of Jefferson, Leyden, Niles, and Maine, and named after Henry Ward Beecher’s 1868 novel Norwood, or Village Life in New England (With the “Park” added to account for another post office in Illinois with the Norwood name), Norwood Park was incorporated as a village in 1874 and annexed to Chicago on November 7, 1893.
Every Memorial Day since 1922 there has been a parade that runs through Norwood Park. William Howard Taft High School, best known as the inspiration for the musical Grease, was completed in 1939 with major additions made in 1959 and 1974.
It is highly recommended that you get a complete professional home inspection done on any home that you purchase in Norwood Park. The unique architecture and ornate Victorian homes may have surprises or complications that an experienced home inspector can identify in their home inspection report.
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 Norwood Park community, and have many years of experience with the homes in the neighborhood! Call us today to schedule a Norwood Park 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.
