IL. Home Inspector Client Referrals
My husband and I had our home inspection and we are absolutely satisfied with the service we received from Chris. He talked us through everything he did and why. He got up in the attic and even down into the dirty crawlspace. We definitely made the right decision choosing CBC for our inspection. The report was fantastic with pictures of everything and it was easy to read and understand. There were a lot of issues we would not have known about or how to possibly fix without him.
I can't imagine how much Chris Currins of CBC Home Inspections saved me. At least 10 times what I paid him. Without dramatizing too much, it could be that he saved my life. He spotted an old overloaded electric board that already had a national reputation for causing fires. The owners of the condo, more than 40 years old in a turn-of-the-20th-century building, weren't as pleased as I was. Upon meeting me, one said he was surprised I didn't have horns and a tail because I had been so thorough in demanding that electrical and plumbing problems be corrected before I handed over the cash. I had just gone down the list from the CBC Home Inspections. I have never met Chris, talked to him only a couple of times by phone. Not living in the area, I found him online, liked the looks of his website and was totally impressed with how fast he always got back to me by email and not just to sign me up. I felt he looked after me as he would family.

I just wanted to say thanks again for the home inspection. This is my first house and I had no idea what I needed to look for in purchasing a home. I was very impressed with the amount of care and detail you put into your inspection. You were in depth and extremely helpful on the countless questions/concerns I had. The report was very clear and easy to understand. I will be SURE to recommend you to anyone I know of looking for a house. The level of service you provided was worth every penny! Thank you again!
Chris provided us with a very thorough and professional home inspection. His comprehensive report included photographs highlighting any issues that needed to be addressed, and included a detailed explanation of what the problem was, along with recommendations of corrective actions to remedy the issues. He even provided links within the report that would take us directly to more information on the web pertinent to the subject. Signing the inspection agreement and paying for the service online couldn't have been any easier, and, as already mentioned, the outstanding report was emailed directly to me, once complete. Following the report, Chris was eager to offer his continued support, if we had any further questions, and even offered to help us out a year down the road if an issue arose regarding the property, at no additional charge. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the report, the entire experience was remarkable. Thank you, Chris!
Chris recently did a home inspection for my husband and I and did a wonderful job! The whole process of scheduling our inspection, having the inspection done, and getting the inspection results report was quick and effortless. Chris was very professional and easy to work with. The inspection and report that he did for us was thorough and very informative. Chris really knows his stuff and doesn't cut any corners on his inspections. He does a great job of explaining any issues that he finds and he includes digital photographs of any problem area in his reports. I would highly recommend using Chris and CBC Home Inspections for any property you are thinking about purchasing. You can trust you will be very well informed on the condition of your potential purchase if you use Chris!

Sent Sept. 16, 2008"christopher currins" firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks for the follow-up Chris, sorry to get back with you so late. If you remember we had to go out of town next day. No problems with the report. We were able to get the builder to fix some things. If I need you again I’ll be sure to contact you.
RE: Inspection Report 10/17/2009
Hi Chris, I'm sorry for the delay in my reply; I've had trouble with my computer at home and really only get to read email at work. Thank you for the thorough inspection and for letting me make a nuciance of myself! I closed on the house on November 25'th and hope to be settled in time to decorate for Christmas. Two city inspectors came out to check the main beam in the basement. One didn't say too much about it, but the other inspector said it looked undersized to him. I'm planning on getting some estimates as well as reading as much as I can about this sort of thing. We'll see how it goes!
Everything has gone well. The inspection uncovered some serious concerns, such as the hidden exposed wiring and specific roof issues, that we were able to have addressed.
• Was the report easy to read and understand? Too much, too little information? We were happy with the detail provided. The diagrams helped us to understand the problems significantly.
• Do you feel I covered everything you were specifically concerned with and clearly explaining all defects with enough detail? Yes.
Overall were you completely satisfied with the inspection, my ability, and the final report? Indeed, we are completely satisfied.
• If you have any questions or comments regarding anything you feel I did right, or wrong, please feel free to comment and let me know. Again, we felt it was quite thorough, and saved us time and headaches by allowing us to present serious problems before closing and before the occupancy inspection.
• Would you hire me again and/or refer my service to your friends or family? Absolutely.

It’s not often that I experience exceptional customer service, so when I do, I feel strongly in expressing my appreciation. You were meticulous and never rushed in the inspection of my pending home. I found your report to be reader friendly, but also liked the extra information provided by way of pictures in problem areas. In addition, you took the time to research a couple of key critical equipment pieces by way of serial number. I have shared my experience with many people and will keep an ear open for anyone in the market for buying a home, as I will highly recommend your services. Thank you for making one aspect of my home buying experience a stress free event…for that I am very grateful!
Tami Joyce, Glen Carbon, Illinois
I have no problem with you using me as a reference. I have nothing but positive things to say about your services that you provided.
Thank you, Terry Draper, Glen Carbon
I'd be happy to give you a reference. We're moved in now and everything is great. Also, we are ready for you to take a look at our home for a pre-sale inspection so we can address any issues. (I anticipate there may be several). We'd like you to come in and go over everything with a fine tooth comb and give us the good, the bad, and the ugly details of what needs to happen to make the house market ready. Can you do this some time toward the end of next week? That would be ideal!
Thanks, Kristi, Holiday Shores

I would be happy to provide a reference for you! We were so greatful for your meticulous-ness in your inspection and appreciate your services. I will keep you in mind should anything come up, but for now, everything's great and I hope the same for you.
Steve, Glen Carbon
Kevin and I both agree that you did a very thorough inspection. We were impressed by the amount of time you put in to checking things out. So far we don't have any questions or concerns about what was in the report.
Thanks for your time, April, Fairview Heights, Illinois
Hey Chris, I found the report to be exceptionally detailed. I have done much research on the items listed in your report and this has been very helpful in determining the type of work that would need to be done to the property and what it's current condition is.
I do have an additional question on the knob and tube wiring. What would be your guesstimate for the amount the knob and tube wiring use versus up to date wiring? I was hoping the knob and tube use was minimal since the wiring has just recently been redone.
Thanks! Ben, Edwardsville
Chris, Thank you very much. The report is so thorough and helpful and I appreciated your patience explaining things to me.
Do you happen to know any licensed electricians and plumbers that you can recommend? Sharon F. P*****, Edwardsville
