About Illinois Property Inspections
We take the time to walk through the details of the home or commercial property inspection report with every customer, not only highlighting a home’s positive qualities but also ensuring that we’ve thoroughly identified all major issues prior to a purchase or sale.
Pre-Purchase Home Inspection
Homebuyers must take precautions, or they risk purchasing a can of worms that will cost a fortune to repair simply to be safe.
We have seen it happen and we have witnessed folks declare bankruptcy. Getting a home inspection before purchasing a house can save you a lot of money, not to mention the stress!
Pre-Listing Home Inspection
However, you will have to negotiate repairs and risk having the buyer back out of the sale. Preventing surprises and post-inspection negotiations by conducting a pre-listing inspection can save you considerable time and money.
New Construction Inspection
Unfortunately, even a brand-new home can have defects, some of them significant. Furthermore, a local government inspection does not ensure the quality of the work or that it was completed according to plan; it merely certifies that certain minimum standards were fulfilled. And when you’ve invested several hundred thousand dollars in a new home, “minimum” is not good enough.
According to EPA estimates, radon is the leading cause of lung cancer in nonsmokers.

Joliet is a city in the U.S. state of Illinois, located 30 miles southwest of Chicago in Will and Kendall counties. Located in Will County, it serves as the county’s seat of government. It was the third-largest city in Illinois by population at the time of the 2020 census, with a population of 150,362.
In 1673, Louis Jolliet paddled up the Des Plaines River with Father Jacques Marquette and camped on a massive earthwork mound a few miles south of present-day Joliet. Jolliet’s exploration maps indicated the presence of a massive hill or mound downstream from Chicago, named Mont Joliet. Due to mining, the mound has subsequently been levelled.
Charles Reed built a cabin along the Des Plaines River’s west shore in 1833, following the Black Hawk War. Across the river, in 1834, James B. Campbell, treasurer of the canal commissioners, laid out the village of “Juliet,” a perversion of the more common “Joliet.” Juliet formed as a village shortly before the 1837 economic slump, but citizens quickly petitioned the state to withdraw that incorporation in order to save on tax payments.
Local inhabitants changed the name of the community from “Juliet” to “Joliet” in 1845 to reflect the original name. In 1852, Joliet was reincorporated as a city. Cornelius Covenhoven Van Horne was instrumental in obtaining the city’s first charter and was chosen the city’s first mayor as a result.
