Quality & Professional Home Inspection

My Name is Jim Langworthy, owner and inspector of JL Home Inspection. It is very gratifying, performing home inspections.  I have integrity, give attention to detail, a dedication to my craft, and a commitment to excellence.

I have an A+ rating and BBB accredited with the Better Business Bureau, as the owner, I personally conduct every inspection. Serving Chicago and suburbs

I have over 15 years experience, with 30 years experience in related fields.  I am an Illinois Licensed Home Inspector and Certified with International Association of Certified Home Inspector (InterNACHI). 

The inspection performed on your Home or Condo could be the crucial factor in saving you thousands of dollars. 
No Home or Condo is perfect. We inspect all major components of the subject property to expose defects. 

Buyers are always encouraged to attend the inspection.
A home inspection is a limited, non-invasive examination of the condition of a home, often in connection with the sale of that home. 
Most home inspections should take 2 to 4 hours at the site and also additional time to produce the report. There are variables that will effect the time an inspection will take, ( size of property, amenities and amount of deficiencies )
