911 Home Inspection Services is a full-service home inspection company offering many types of inspections and environmental testing to fit your needs. We are dedicated to providing you the best service possible at the most reasonable rates in the industry. We offer all services 6 days a week for your convenience.
No two home inspectors are alike. Just as there are experienced and inexperienced mechanics, carpenters, doctors and lawyers, the same holds true for home inspectors. Some home inspectors, believe it or not, don't even have a construction background. Would you trust a surgeon who only read the books but never performed actual surgery? Would you let the tire guy do a major engine overhaul? Of course not. Then don't rely on a home inspector that has never done construction! Our inspector has over 20 years of hands-on construction experience and knows how a home is supposed to be built. He can readily identify where DIY homeowners, carpenters and other tradesmen cut corners.
He is also a career firefighter and fire investigator - that's where the "911" comes from. No other home inspector can offer this insight. This has been proven time and time again in areas of inspections only he seems to be concerned with. Other inspectors don't know what to look for or have disclaimers in their reports telling you why they don't inspect these very important areas. Your home is not safe unless you can be alerted to a problem and have the ability to escape with your life.
We also won't sell you unnecessary services. Many inspectors use scare tactics to persuade clients to perform unnecessary testing, adding hundreds of dollars to the tab. If there is a reason for a particular test our inspector will explain why and let you make an educated decision.
Every home inspection meets or exceeds the standards of the InterNational Association of Certified Home Inspectors (INACHI) and the State of Illinois. Read our Standards of Practice at http://www.nachi.org/sop.htm for details.
My Promise To You
I understand choosing the right home inspector can be difficult and you probably won't get to meet me until after you hire me. One thing for sure is that a thorough inspection or test requires work, a lot of work. The end result relies solely on the individual inspector's own effort. If you permit me to conduct your inspection or testing I promise that I will give you my very best effort.
