    Chip at Safety Net Home Inspections is an absolutely amazing guy. My father is an old-school, detail-oriented perfectionist, and Chip blew him away during the inspection. Chip not only went to painstaking detail in inspecting this home, but he answered every question we had in precise detail, without making us feel "rushed" or that he was "on a time crunch" in any way. This was extremely important to my father and I, because this was my 1st home inspection, as a first-time home buyer, and I felt like Chip made me feel very comfortable throughout the process. Not only did Chip look at every nook, cranny, and crevice with a fine-tooth comb during this inspection, but his answers were concise, very specific to the room he was in, and never glossed over. He brought along a plethora of tools, an entire kit of home-specific gear, and was EXTREMELY professional with his demeanor. He didn't mince words and was very genuine and honest in his unbiased answers. Wonderfully knowledgeable doesn't even begin to describe his craft. I could only be so lucky to have Chip do every home inspection I have, for the rest of my home-buying experience. I am eternally grateful to my real estate attorney for recommending his services. I was so pleased with his expertise both during the inspection and after the report came back. The Inspection writeup was even more impressive. Not only did it encompass very specific pictures of the home throughout, but the explanations were so detailed in nature that it was like reading a perfectly constructed short story. My real estate attorney told me that it felt like she was "in the home for the inspection" because the Inspection report was so incredibly detailed and thorough. Thank you again Chip. I couldn't possibly be more impressed and thankful for the amazing job you did. I would/will recommend your services to everyone I know going through this process moving forward, young or old. You have officially gained a satisfied client for life. Cheers, Matt K

    Chip was very thorough. He was very informative, and he had a quick turnaround with the report. My attorney was even impressed with the content of the report. Quality service for an affordable rate! Would highly recommend.

    5.0 Brandon T. Aurora, IL

    I cannot say enough good things about Chip. He responded to my Home Advisor inquiry within 30 min ( which says a lot because it was after midnight when I made the inquiry). Chip sent a message letting me know if I was awake I could give him a call as he was up working on some paperwork! Major plus as I needed this inspection done fast as my work schedule is hectic. Communication was easy, he was very responsive and more importantly knowledgeable about his craft. He made me as a first time home buyer, feel informed about the findings of the inspection as well as normal maintenance that every homeowner should know about. His inspection report was sent to me and my realtor in less than 24 hours after it was done. Grade A service and I would highly recommend Chip to everyone I know that needs a home inspector. The process could not have gone any better and this is coming from someone who never gives perfect scores !! Great Job Chip, keep doing what you're doing!!

Thank you again, and enjoy your new home!

    Safety-Net Inspections did an excellent job of inspecting the home and informing me of what they were looking for and any discrepancies if applicable. Our inspector, Chip, was very courteous and very knowledgeable. He went out of his way to ensure that we understood the inspection process and probable courses of action. Great Choice. Very reasonable price.

    1. Verify Trade License
      HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.

      As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
