Chicago Building Inspections (CBI) was founded in 2015 but has a deep background in all things real estate. We’ve been providing expert-level building inspections since 2008 – earning a solid reputation as one of the most thorough in Chicagoland. We have extensive experience with the rigors of running both single and multi-inspector firms and have a substantial quantity of recommendations on many social media outlets around the web.
CBI inspectors are not tire-kickers; we are extremely thorough, efficient, and fair. We have over 150 yrs of collective experience and much of that is deep in the trenches. Our fees reflect the effort it takes to stay on top of the ever-changing world of construction materials and methods of installing them. It is a rare week when we’re not in communication with trusted tradespeople to get a better understanding of something new we’ve seen or want to investigate further.
We have inspected thousands of buildings and units over the past decade and uncovered volumes full of building practices we wish we’d never seen. However, that’s what has helped motivate us to become tenacious inspectors, looking for what others may not even know is missing. Having passed the gauntlet of energy auditing and surveys via RESNET and BPI, extensive HVAC and thermal imaging training, and countless moisture intrusion inspections and investigations, we are prepared to help you understand what lies ahead.

We’ve assembled one of the sharpest groups of inspectors in our area, bar none. From significant residential development complexes that were once a cornfield up to the high rise condo building a stone’s throw from the Hancock, we’ve seen just about all there is in our respective fields. Having a licensed architect and engineer on staff only bolsters our confidence in helping clients receive the best and most pertinent information we can uncover.
