When we first opened our doors in 2003, we never expected to reach all the way over to Dyer. Maybe we didn’t dream big enough. Maybe it’s the mass migration of Chicagoans. Maybe it’s the town’s consensus to upgrade, maintain, and grow.
Or maybe, just maybe, it’s a combination of many, many things, culminating Dyer’s near-perfect mix of new construction, commercial buildings, and classic houses built in early 1900’s that draw buyers and sellers and with them, us.

A quick case study of a signature inspection in Dyer.
We inspected a house built in 1927 that had hidden Termite damage.– Jim Ullom
Termites need water to survive. Therefore, they nest in wet, shady areas. Often, negative grade around the foundation and poor gutter systems can create wet conditions for their survival. Whenever we discover these conditions are present our inspectors are already thinking about the possibility of termite damage before we even enter the basement to inspect the structure. Inspecting every square inch of the complete beam, floor joist, and rim joist system we found small mud tubes running along each gap (same color as the wood framing members). This repair on structural framing and support members can be extensive, approximately $30,000 in structural repairs on this one. The buyer was thankful that we discovered this major hidden expense and structural defect prior to their purchase and they instead choose to walk away.
