I received your report and I am very impressed with how thorough of a job you do. The electrical issues concern me, I know they can get expensive. Thanks Chris!
Chris Hendricks, Collinsville
I thought the inspection report was very concise and clear. I thought your work was outstanding. I would be happy to be a reference for you. David also agrees.
Mike Harvath, Edwardsville
Hi Chris! I'm so sorry to have not gotten back to you yet! Your report was amazing and we were blown away at how clear and thought out it was! As of right now, we don't have any questions but as we continue thru this process we may.
Thanks Alyse, Edwardsville
After making an offer on a newly constructed home in Glen Carbon, I began searching for a local home inspector who had solid on-line customer reviews. This is when I found Chris (CBC Home Inspections).
Some folks don't believe they need a home inspection when purchasing a new home. However, Chris proved that you do indeed need an inspection and must inspect everything. Chris found several items which needed to be corrected, while all were not not very serious, they had the potential to be later down the road. One of these items specifically was improper fasteners used to secure the drip edge above the gutters. Yes, Chris actually picked up the shingles and looked underneath them.
Regarding Chris' report, It was very detailed but also easy to read and interpret. Chris provided drawings and diagrams which depicted the
problem and also a proposed solution. All of the issues were clearly defined as recommendations, as well as actions required. Items which required action were clearly defined throughout the report, but also grouped together at the end of the report for easy identification and contractor distribution.
If I were building another home, I would definitely hire Chris again, and would encourage you to hire him in the future for your own home inspection needs.

Chris at CBC Home Inspections has inspected 2 homes for me recently. His work is incredibly thorough and easy to understand. After his
inspections are complete, he is excellent at following up with clients to make sure everything is satisfactory. I was incredibly impressed with Chris's work and wouldn't hesitate to call him again if ever needed.

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 careand 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!
Kyle McGuire, Caseyville
Thank you for doing the inspection on Logan . It was very thorough and informative. It really opened my eyes as to the condition of the
property. I will make sure the next time I need an inspection that I will call you. Thank you once again.

Hello Mr. Currins,
Thank you for a very detailed inspection. It looks great! I actually know of someone who needs an inspector and I gave her your information.
Thank you for everything and I hope to work with you again in the future!
Chris just did a very extensive home inspection for us in Edwardsville and he found a number of issues that we wouldn't have known about otherwise. His report was extensive with photo documentation and detailed explanations. He has made one additional trip to follow up on an issue and was willing to speak directly to the seller about his questions. Highly recommend!
We couldn't be happier with your work. It is exemplary!
I had a friend who is a professional construction project manager go over some of the items with me to get a sense of repair costs. He said he had never seen such a thorough and well put together report. In fact, he recently bought a home and started he wished he could have used you (but he lives back in Ohio).
Thank you so much for your willingness to teach me about the many aspects of home construction. That is priceless. And, thank you for your professionalism.
My husband and I had our home inspection and we 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 definately 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 alot of issues we would not have known about or how to possibly fix

Chris recently did a home inspection for my husband and I and did a wonderful job! The whole process of scheduling ourinspection, 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 reccomend 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!

The owners agreed to pay half for the service panel upgrades and had the chimney flashed. We closed on the house today. I thought you did an excellent job covering everything. Many thanks!!
Terry Studnicki, Wood River
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!
Mike McKelvey, Edwardsville
Hey Chris! Yea, It helped us negotiate 5,000 off of the both of them combined. We are also working on evicting the hoarder.
So we got an immediate return on the investment of our $500 to you.
Thanks a lot, I'll call you in the future when we need another inspection.
Andrew Pfleger, Alton
Hey Chris, just wanted to let you know that I was completely satisfied with the inspection. The detail in our discussions during the inspection, and in the report was excellent for someone with my (lack of) knowledge of construction, plumbing and electrical.
Also, I appreciated that you set up the radon measuring stations ahead of time; and that you were on time for the inspection appointment and on time with the report; and also very professionally presented yourself and were articulate in expressing yourself.
Thanks again for your service.
Jim Haeuber, Lebanon, IL
CBC Home Inspections did a very professional and detailed job! Chris was great at communicating everything to make it easy to understand. He did an extremely thorough job inspecting the house from top to bottom. The report was completed in 24 hours and very well done. The report is complete with pictures of the area being discussed as well as very detailed information. CBC Home Inspections is by far an outstanding choice if you need your home inspected. If I could give them six stars I would :)
Robert "Big Bear" Renner, Alton, IL
Chris, I thought the inspection was extremely well done and your professionalism was greatly appreciated.

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 found Chris through searching Google and Yelp. Chris's website was user friendly and informative. I scheduled our home inspection through his website, which he responded to in less than 24 hours. On the day of our inspection, it was cold and drizzling rain. That did not stop him from
doing a thorough inspection. He didn't rush through the inspection and would explain his findings to us.
The report was easy to read and included pictures.
A week later, I received an email from Chris regarding the fix actions that were taken and how it did not comply with local codes and was not safe. He was already paid and continued to follow up with our case even if his job was done. Thanks Chris!
Christine K. Scott AFB, IL
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!
