The inspector stated he was coming. That being Tim Kerfin the owner. I was clear I didn't want a substitue. Who shows up? His 21 year old son who has been licensed for 2 months. Sorry practice on someone else's home.His son, a.k.a. "Goosee" would not stop talking about his dad's radio show on WJOL Joliet, IL. I had to finally tell him to focus on his job and quit talking about his dad's legacy. I paid to have another inspector come out the next day and stopped payment on Kerfin Inspection's payment.
Pat was the ultimate professional. He provided reports on site with all my questions answered. I was impressed by his level of knowledge and courtesy. I am happy to know that my investment was inspected before I purchased.
Kerfin Inspections did a thorough inspection on the property we were going to purchase. Their report included pictures of what exactly were the issues and clear instructions on how each one should be rectified. We needed a re-inspection in the morning of the closing and even though they were fully booked, they were willing to squeeze in the time to do it for us and actually ended up spending more time with us than they had planned. Throughout the inspection, they took the time to patiently explain what they were looking for and why. They also provided recommendations for smaller issues and areas that might need attention later on, in case I wanted to fix them myself. My realtor was so impressed with Kerfin Inspections’ work that he said he would start using them for his future clients too.
Kerfin Inspections was exactly what we were looking for in our home inspection! Inspector was a pleasure to work with! He is very knowledgeable, detailed orientated, and a true master at his craft. He found some rather bigger issues with the home we were looking to purchase and it gave us plenty of room for negotiation! Being a business owner myself I truly respect how accurate and precise inspector is with his work!
I definitely made a great choice. It's my first time buying a house so I was kind of careful for choosing an inspector. My friend recommended Kerfin Inspections for me. The inspector was very nice, patient and professional. I asked him lots of questions and he explained all of them to me friendly. Overall, Very good services and reasonable price!!
Kerfin Inspections was wonderful to work with during our house inspection. Despite the holidays, they were able to schedule time for our inspection. On the inspection date, the inspector even showed up early! He was able to complete the inspection in a timely manner and provided us with a very detailed report. He also pointed out some of the item and gave us some advice as we walked through the house together. Very communicative and responsive!
This year has been a lucky year for my family and relatives. All our relatives are looking into properties and we've all been using this company to inspect our potential homes. The inspection team was very patient and they walk you through everything- from small leaks in the house, termites, home structure, pipes, gas meter, boiler and all other electrical work etc. Each inspection took around an hour or so. I really appreciate this since I am putting down a large investment and they made sure all my questions are answered. They are very careful when they need to remove items around the house and always put them back where it belongs. Their fee is very reasonable. Straight up honest and great company!
