Setting The Standard In Home Inspection

Purchasing a home is the largest investment you will make. Hiring a trained, certified professional home Inspector can make this a much more pleasant experience so that you can buy with confidence. The same is true if you are selling a home. Fewer last minute surprises and a faster, more efficient sale. Dollar for dollar, at todays costs for homes and repairs, a professional home Inspection is a bargain.

Radon, mold, air quality, thermal imaging, and pool inspections also available.

I will give you the confidence to make an informed decision about your new home. The inspection will cover the homes major systems, from the roof to the basement, and I will tell you what needs to be done.

Having Steve come in was the best thing. Being a first time home buyer was scary enough and having a professional like Steve made it so much easier. I was explained all issues in a matter I could understand and if not fixed, what damage would occur. His report was extremely simple to understand and complete. Finding mistakes a village inspector missed. I would highly recommend Steve and Beneficial Home Inspections.

D. Weinreis, Winthrop Harbor, IL

Very thorough inspection and evaluation. Appreciate the time Steve took to point out annual maintenance items that need to be completed on the house. The "Ease Ur Move" kit is great. Thank you. The Petrik's.

J. Petrik, Round Lake, IL

Steve was recommended to me by my sister. He did a great job. (Twice) As I had him inspect two condos I was looking to purchase. He was always professional, informative, and thorough.

L. Lentino, Chicago, IL

Not only was Steve extremely thorough as well as patient with this inspection, he was also able to turn his findings into a very professional and easy-to-follow report. I will definitely recommend Steve to anyone I know purchasing a home.

S. Kenik, Chicago, IL

Steve was on time and he took his time reviewing everything and explaining to me the problems or potential problems for the future. I would highly recommend Steve for home inspections to my family and friends.

N. Ayala, Lake Villa, IL

Thanks Steve! Great job with the home inspection. We asked the sellers to fix all the problems you found and they agreed...including the radon mitigation! Sarah and I are very pleased with everything.

R. Blabolil, Lisle, IL

Steve's inspection was just as described. He was prompt, professional, and courteous. His many years of knowledge really shined on our inspection, he uncovered (undisclosed) hidden fire damage in the trusses and floor joists of the home. This made out decision simple to pass on the home. Steve saved us literally thousands of dollars, and for that, we are truly grateful. We will not hesitate to use our recommend your service when we find the right place.

T. and S. Marcou, Wisconsin

Aside from a 'very' thorough inspection, the side information Steve offered on simple home improvements I would have never thought of was 'invaluable'. I have already and will continue to tell others of Steve's professional service.
