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!

ORF is absolutely amazing. I’m a single woman that bought my 1st home. My Inspector, Chris was funny & down to earth and let me go thru inspection with him. He showed me so much stuff. I actually learned a lot. He was honest, direct, & cut no corners. I can’t say enough how impressed I was with him. I will definitely recommend him anytime over anyone else.

I recommend Orf Home Inspection to all my clients! They provide top notch service from the very first phone call and beyond. I have worked with many inspections company’s in my Real Estate career and Orf surpasses them all in every way including customer service, professionalism during inspections, thorough easy to understand inspection reports and fa-nominal follow up with me and my clients!

Chimneys are often overlooked in home inspections.  But if your home has a working fireplace, the chimney can be one of the areas of most concentrated risk. The health of the chimney determines not only the risk of chimney fires, but also the quality of airflow and the possibility of carbon monoxide being introduced into the living area.
