About Our Home Inspection Services
Whether you are buying, selling, or maintaining your home, Home Inspection Geeks provides professional and quality service in the Chicago & Naperville, IL areas. Our licensed home inspectors will walk through your home with you and teach you as much as you want to learn. We strictly follow the Standards of Practice for home inspectors established by InterNACHI, the leading home inspection association.
After we walk through the home together, we will personally explain the general condition of the home and systems with you and your agent. We will talk through any major issues that need to be addressed sooner rather than later. We will also mention the items that you will want to keep an eye on for deferred maintenance. All of this will be detailed in our easy-to-read report, which will be delivered in HTML and/or PDF format. From that report, you’ll be able to see the items we discussed, with images for reference.
A standard home inspection is a complete assessment of the property’s condition, which typically includes the foundation, roof, electrical systems, plumbing, heating and cooling, interior and exterior elements, basements/crawlspaces, and major appliances. After the inspection you will receive a full-color home inspection report, web-based for easy viewing even on your mobile devices, which includes a thorough explanation of any areas of concern.
This is a comprehensive evaluation of a newly constructed property in which the inspector will find any potential code violations or flaws due to poor workmanship. As tempting as it is to skip this inspection, this is your last chance to assess the value of your investment before it’s officially yours. Just like with any other property, skipping the inspection can cost you a lot of money later.
Commercial Property Inspections are often required by insurance companies to ensure proper coverage. Similar to residential inspections, commercial inspections involve a thorough assessment of the property. This includes structural, mechanical, and interior features as well as the major systems and exterior elements, such as parking lots and detached structures.
Radon testing is the only way to determine if your home has higher-than-average levels of radon, which can pose a health risk to your family. Keep your family safe from the dangerous effects of radon. Radon is extremely carcinogenic and according to the EPA, it is one of the leading contributors to the development of lung cancer.
A sewer scope inspection is performed by inserting a flexible borescope camera into your pipes to look for things like cracks, damage to the lines, roots that have grown through the pipe, and any other potential concerns. A sewer scope inspection is quick, affordable, and can save you thousands of dollars if an issue is found. This is a popular add-on service for our Chicago home inspections as the city drainage system is known for backup and blockages.
Thermal imaging uses a specialized infrared camera that can detect the level of heat radiation coming off of a particular object. The power of infrared imaging makes it easy for your inspector to detect issues that may be hiding in your home. Thermal imaging can help save money by eliminating drafts and energy loss. It can also prevent larger issues by identifying leaks, moisture, and hot spots.
