Pristine did the home inspection for the new buyer when I recently sold my home. The inspection John did was incredibly thorough, especially compared to the one that was done by another inspection company on my new home (which was also more expensive!). Pristine’s printed report was very detailed and made it easy to identify items in need of repair. There’s no question that next time I’d use Pristine, on both my house before I put it on the market as well as on a new home before purchasing. It’s also important to mention that the buyers for my previous house had a radon test done. Prior to that, I had little knowledge about radon and the health risks associated with exposure at high levels. As it turned out, my old house had excessive levels (as high as 15, when 4.0 is the *acceptable* high)! I hadn’t originally planned on it (or even given it any thought), but I then had a radon test done in my new home. It was money well spent to ensure the safety of my family.

For anyone needing a thorough home inspection, I would highly recommend Pristine Home Inspections. Just this week, John came to inspect a home I’m in the process of purchasing. I felt completely comfortable with the knowledge and expertise that was displayed throughout the process. He wasn’t rushed, answered questions, and provided me with excellent results and recommendations. It is good to feel that nothing has been overlooked and I was getting a fair assessment of my potential investment. The experience was a good one, I would use them again and refer my friends and family to Pristine…Great attention to detail and friendly service!

I was very, very impressed with the thoroughness of the inspection. I walked thru the whole process with Larry, and besides the great attention to detail, Larry was also really willing to answer the (many!) questions I had. Thanks!

— Hal S.

John did a thorough inspection, taking the time to address all of my concerns and answering each of my questions in an informative, direct manner. He was friendly and professional and I trusted his judgment and advice concerning my new home. Thanks John!

— Nicole T.

We had Pristine do an inspection for our son, who is purchasing his first property. Larry was extremely thorough and helped us understand all of the complexities of his inspection. He has made this stressful process very comforting. This was money very well spent! I highly recommend Prestine Home Inspections. Dennis

— Dennis G.

Both John and Larry not only do quality, thorough work, but their level of customer service, availability, and professionalism is also outstanding. I would highly recommend them and their services based on my very positive experience! Plus they have great personalities and are quality individuals!

Dear Inspectors: My name is Mrs. E, and you inspected my future home yesterday in Champaign. I live in Orlando currently, so I depend on your inspection more than the average buyer. Thank you for doing such a thorough job. I really liked your form. You were so detail-oriented and timely. It is awfully hard to impress me, and I am impressed. In contrast, our inspectors in Orlando, when we bought our home here, did a 5 minute walk through of our home with little supporting documentation. We have had no major problems with the Orlando home, but it was nice to get a lot more information about the Champaign house. So your work-up was a pleasant surprise. ME

— Mrs. E

To Pristine Home Inspectors, We wish to commend you on your fine service to us given in late October of 2009. The inspectors were thorough, friendly, and efficient. We were confidant that the report gave an accurate picture of the condition of our new home. We would recommend them to anyone seeking a professional and reliable house inspector. Urbana, IL

John: Thank you again for your help and answering some of my questions today. This has been an easy experience and I also appreciated the beautiful home inspection report! Very impressed 🙂 …so just wanted to let you know that your help and your professionalism is greatly appreciated!!!

— Kylie

As a first time home buyer, it was great to have someone as thorough and friendly as Larry to inspect my future home. He was incredibly friendly and very willing to explain and show me what he found throughout the house. He answered every question that I asked and gave some great advice at the same time. I never thought a home inspection would be that fun! And even after a long day, I still received the PDF writeup about the inspection soon after. Fast and friendly– definitely recommending Pristine for future inspections.

Larry from Pristine Home Inspections came to our home to do an inspection as our home is on the market and we wanted to make sure that there wasn’t anything major that needed to be done before it could be sold. Larry was very thorough but also very fair. He let us know what needed to be repaired but also took into consideration that the house is 60+ years old. I would recommend that you call them whenever you need a home inspection as you will be very pleased with their work and will find them to be most professional.

— Carol L

Pristine Home Inspections is a great company, I highly recommend them to anyone. Larry is detailed, endlessly patient, and so obviously great at what he does. He answered all of my questions, and did a very thorough job. I highly recommend tagging along for the inspection – his vast knowledge and expertise make him an excellent guide as to what needs to be done and how.

— Lisa

Never before have we been so glad to spend $285 as in our recent home inspection. This oral and written tutorial helped us understand our potential new home and to prepare us for correcting some problems that have gone unnoticed by others. John was clear, concise and explained things in a way that we novices could grasp right away. The written report with pictures is remarkable & extremely helpful.

— Rev Dr. Lonnie Southern, LTC USARNG ret.

John Cheney (Pristine) did a fantastic job inspecting my new home. The report was extremely thorough and John was kind enough to take almost an hour to walk me through the report on the phone. He got everything done very quickly, including the reinspect, in order for me to buy my home on very short notice. I highly recommend the mold test! Thanks John for everything! First BBQ has your name on the invite list! 🙂

— Melissa W.

Larry was on time, very professional and thorough. He was very knowledgeable and gave valuable suggestions about how to improve the home. His inspection report was very easy to understand and we received the full report the same day as the inspection.

— B. Rogers

John was very kind from the first moment I contacted him to conduct an inspection on my first new home. He was prompt, caring, and very thorough. He answered all of my questions in ways that I could understand and felt confident in my new knowledge. John inspected parts of my house that I didn’t know existed and took photos so that I could see exactly what he was pointing out. He also had an incredibly detailed print out which he delivered to me on site. His customer service was exceptional. I will recommend this company to everyone and will use them again in an instant! John also left a folder of information that I still find very helpful.

— Laura H.

Had an inspection recently and Mr. Adair did a very thorough job. The report was very detailed and he had many great suggestions as to how to repair/upgrade issues that we saw. Very personable and easy to work with. Thank you!

— Barbra B

The inspector was very thorough and explained everything to us in detail. It was a good experience. Very professional and fast.

— John O

John was a pleasure to meet. He took the time to explain the key components of the house. John was very attentive to every question and went out of his way to give a visual of the explanation to guarantee proper understanding. John knows the laws and confirms all items pass code.

— Ryan L

Great company

— Mike D

Our experience with Pristine was fabulous. Casey, our Tech, was great. He answered all our questions, and pointed out everything we needed to know. The report was professional, comprehensive and helped us immensely. Highly recommended.

— Andy M

We were very pleased to find that John Chaney would be performing our inspection. He had done an inspection for us before, so we knew he would do an excellent job. As before, he was prompt, thorough, and very professional, while at the same time being personable. John made our inspection a very positive experience. I am pleased to give John an excellent review-he is most deserving.

— Jeff L

John from Pristine and his whole team were amazing with our home inspection. John uncovered a few hard to find issues and made a number of trips back to our new home prior to closing to re-inspection and ensure matters were addressed with a very quick turn around time. I give John and his team an A+++++++ rating.

— Rebecca W

Very professional and thorough

— Ed T

John was very thorough and explained everything as he was going through the house. I am impressed with the equipment they bring to the site. They were early to the house and did not leave until all of my questions were answered. John was realistic about the condition of the house and didn’t sugarcoat anything. I would highly recommend John to anyone looking to buy a house, especially if they are a first-time homebuyer.

— James N

John Cheney with Pristine Inspections & Testing is very professional and thorough. While performing a mold inspection and taking air samples, John answered all of our questions in detailed, easy to understand language, and was courteous and knowledgeable. Each time I contacted his office, his staff was equally as courteous. We highly recommend his company.

— Julia W

This is the second home I’ve had inspected by Pristine. John is very systematic in how he inspects every critical aspect of the house. He identifies areas of concern, but also explains the issue so that you understand and don’t become unnecessarily alarmed. After he inspects my property, I have confidence in what I’m “getting myself into.” He also makes himself available to answer followup questions after the dust of the inspection settles. I strongly recommend Pristine!

— John C

very good

Pristine Home inspections did a fantastic job for me in inspecting my house. They were very thorough in inspecting all aspects of my new house from major to minor items. Moreover, the inspector made a point of explaining in detail all the data he had collected and communicating it in a way that was clear and helpful. Moreover, the report that was generated was similarly lucid and informative with accompanying pictures and recommendations for amending problems. Finally, when I called Pristine Inspections to ask for help with a question about furnace maintenance, he came over, helped me get into the furnace, modelled for me how to get the filters in and out, and then left me with a couple new filters and a special tool to open up the filter compartment–all at no extra cost! The inspector was consistently polite, friendly, competent, and professional. Customer safety and satisfaction are obviously core goals for Pristine Inspections–I recommend them very strongly!

— Mark F

Very professional and efficient. Inspector (John) was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. Overall the experience was first class and i would highly recommend
Pristine to anyone

— Michael P

I couldn’t have asked for a better experience! Mark Adair took the time to answer all of my questions and concerns about the house. The report was emailed to me promptly the morning after the inspection. Great service!!

— Katrina F

John Cheney did our inspection on a home we are purchasing in Urbana. The home has a vaulted ceiling in the great room. John was able to determine using infrared, that what we thought were some missed spots in a bad paint job, were actually showing where insulation was missing. Had John not used the infrared, we would never have know this. He was able to confirm what he thought when he got up in the attic. Using the infrared, he was able to show us exactly where this was and saved us the cost of having to repaint the entire room. I’d never again have an inspection without using infrared! John was also very good at answering our questions and explaining things in a way we could understand.

— Peggy H

John Mielke was very thorough and informative.

— Eswara A

We had a strange odor in our new house which was under construction. We thought it smelled like ammonia and stopped construction in fear that we might need to do some demolition to remove the source of the problem. With John’s help and his discussion with our general contractor, we were able to identify the source as a salamander heater which had been left in the master bedroom closet. After it was removed and the house aired out for a few day, the odor was gone and we are moving forward with construction.

— Richard W

John did a very thorough and detailed inspection of our home before we bought it. He pinpointed everything that needed to be fixed and repaired in order for the house to be up to code and in functioning order. Definitely worth the time and money!

— Mike & Ashley B

John was efficient and thorough. Answered all my questions and is honest.

— Bob U

John Cheney was great. Happy to spend time explaining any items he discovered and answer any questions I had. Would recommend to anyone in the area.

— Caleb S

We have used Pristine twice now and still have nothing but great things to say! We have had the pleasure of working with John M and John the owner of the company and have been floored both times. Excellent knowledge and professionalism is what sets this company above the rest. We will never trust anyone else with inspections!
