Profile
Cardinal Inspection Services, LLC


The more you know about your home, the better off you'll be.

My clients sometimes are surprised when I tell them I have experience in both construction and journalism. While this combination may be unusual, I think it makes me a better home inspector. For almost 20 years, I worked as a carpenter and general contractor, mostly renovating houses and small multifamily buildings on Chicago's North Side, or in the northern suburbs. I'm familiar with the homes in this area because I've worked on dozens of them. I spent another 10 years or so in journalism, including a stint at Fine Homebuilding magazine, one of the nation's leading sources of information on residential building. For most of us, buying real estate is a big step. I'd be happy to help you with that by getting you as much information as possible about the property you're interested in.

Project: Inspect a Home
I called Reese and he was able to set a time for the following day to meet me at my new property. His professionalism was superb and he got my inspection report back to me much sooner than I had anticipated. Thanks again Reese!

Project: Inspect a Home
Reese was extremely personable, prompt, was not rushed, answered all my questions, and delivered as promised. I had the completed report the very next day. The 90 day guarantee also helped with my decision.

He did good job with the details and report. The fee was much more reasonable than other inspectors for the same quality level. I recommend him to new customers.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.



NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate. Therefore, we recommend that before working with a service professional you verify that information presented is still current and/or acceptable to you.
