Our Home Inspection Guarantee

At ORF Home Inspections, LLC, we offer a very simple, no fine print guarantee and we’re not satisfied unless you are.

Here’s how it works…
Attend your Home Inspection and if for any reason you’re not satisfied with the “Quality” of the home inspection service, just tell the Inspector before receiving your report and we’ll either make it right, or you don’t pay the fee! Plus we’ll pay the cost (equal to or less than our initial cost) for another professional home inspector (of your choosing) to perform a second inspection. Why?? Because your satisfaction is important to us!
That’s Our Iron-Clad Guarantee To YOU.

How Can We Guarantee Our Inspections?
We Find The Defects That Cost Big $$$- The end result is you save more money. Most contracts obligate the seller to make repairs or give you credit at closing. The more defects your inspector finds, the more money you save.
We Don’t Rush- We don’t do more than 2 inspections per day. This allows us the time to do a thorough inspection of your new home. This also means we charge more than most of our competitors. You don’t want a cheap inspection. A cheap inspection may be the most expensive thing you’ll ever buy, it may cost you thousands of dollars down the road because of missed or overlooked defects. Cheap inspectors often know less and do less, which is one reason they charge less.
Bottom line- The more thorough we are, the more defects we find – the more money you save.

It seems unbelievable to me, but I’ve been a Realtor over 20 years. I’ve interacted with several inspectors over time. I have NEVER had one of them go the extra mile for a client as I have seen with Orf Home Inspections. Dropping everything to help a client in need time and again. I am impressed and happy to be a partner with such a caring inspection team. Highly recommend trying them- you won’t be disappointed!

I recently joined BNI St. Charles and our chapter is looking for a highly skilled and customer focused home inspector. I put feelers out in the community and this business, Orf Home Inspections, kept coming up as the best in the area…a customer focused and highly skilled home inspector. I met Chris when I was looking at joining BNI. He is a member of BNI Success Express, one of the other top chapters in our area. It was very cool to know the caliber of businesses I joined when I joined BNI. I am proud to say I know who he is and, based on the feedback from the community, so do many others. Chris, I hope you see this and know you are doing something right!
