Inspect, Inc. is thrilled to celebrate over 30 years of success in the Chicago area! Our company has always been a family-oriented, privately-owned business dedicated to providing excellent service through personal relationships. The company was founded in July, 1983 by Dave Mahnke and his wife Gay who, through hard work and dedication, built Inspect, Inc. into a respected leader in the home inspection industry. After Dave’s unfortunate passing in 2002, the company was proudly taken over by long-time Inspect employee Bill Hahn and his wife Anita, who brought their own dedication and expertise to daily operations. When the Hahns were ready for retirement in 2008, Inspect, Inc. again passed to another long-standing employee, Mike Doetsch who, like Bill Hahn, has had the pleasure of working in the company since the Mahnkes stood as owners. Mike and his wife, Cindy, maintain the company’s dedication to providing honest, objective, expert home inspections. Today, Inspect Inc. continues to operate as it always has – with excellence, with integrity, and with genuine care for our clients. We are lucky to have had the pleasure of working with so many home-owners and real estate professionals from all over the Chicago area, and we are proud to have played a part in the immense growth that has taken place in the real estate market over the past three decades. We will enjoy building relationships with new clients, as so many of you have become both friends and colleagues to us. Each and every one of you is part of the reason Inspect, Inc. has been thriving for 30 years, and we look forward to working side by side for many years to come!
The American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI) is the oldest and leading professional association for independent home inspectors. Since its formation in 1976, ASHI’s Standards of Practice have served as the home inspector’s performance guideline, universally recognized and accepted by professional and government authorities alike.
In addition, ASHI’s professional Code of Ethics prohibits members from engaging in conflict of interest activities which might compromise their objectivity. This is the consumer’s assurance that the inspector will not, for example, use the inspection to solicit or refer repair work.
ASHI is a national non-profit organization that sets its standards well above Illinois state standards.
To simply become a “state licensed” home inspector, one needs only to take classes and pass a test.
Within the ASHI organization, individuals must perform a specified number of inspections in order to attain different qualification levels. Also, while the state only requires 6 credits of continuing education annually, ASHI requires 20. The professionals at Inspect, Inc. are encouraged to go even beyond this goal.
Inspect Inc. is proud to have professional home inspectors that are Certified Members of ASHI.
In an effort to continuously improve, Inspkt.com has tranformed into a new, enhanced website. The new site is cleaner, easier to navigate, and responsive for mobile users. More information will be added monthly, as we will strive to keep you updated on the latest news and information about home inspections – specifically in our northern Illinois region.
