We are a full time home inspection company; not part time home inspectors trying to earn extra cash. This is not a second job, this is our business. How do you choose the right home inspector? Does a
home inspector in Oak Lawn inspect the same items that an Oak Forest home inspector will? Is a Mokena home inspection the same as a Palos Hills home inspection? The answer to those questions in general is "YES". Illinois State law requires that home inspectors inspect or observe the same systems and componenets, whether they work in Oak Forest, Crestwood, Palos Hills, or any other village or city in Illinois, as long as those systems and components are readily accessible. So, how do you choose your home inspector? Why choose Merino's Home Inspection & Education Inc.? I offer the following value added services**on all of my home inspections providing you purchase the home.
Client must inform Merino's Home Inspection within 10 days after the inspection is completed of their intent to purchase the home, or within 5 days after the actual purchase of the home to obtain these value added services.


Oak Forest home inspectorIf you purchase a house that you paid me to inspect, I will re-inspect the house or its components for 1 year from the date of the original home inspection. Other home inspectors in Oak Forest, Mokena, Oak Lawn, Crestwood & Palos Hills charge a fee for a re-inspection, or some home inspectors advertise a free re-inspection, but, will charge a travel fee, after hours fee or a weekend fee. I will not charge you anything for a reinspection, PERIOD!! This is a great value, especially if you have a warranty on your house. Call me prior to the expiration of the warranty and I can perform a home inspection to help identify any issues; then have them corrected in accordance with your warranty. As always you get FREE consultation for life.

Oak Lawn home inspectorThe warranty will help cover an item that the home inspector reported as working at the time of the home inspection. If a problem occurs within 90 days of the home inspection, or within 22 days of closing, whichever comes later, you can make a claim for repair or replacement. Limitations do apply. Just another value added service to provide you with peace of mind.

See the Benefits.

Crestwood home inspectorYes, it is spelled correctly! This service offers protection against failure, due to normal wear and tear, of the main water supply line & the main sewer line from the house to the utility service connection. The protection helps offset the cost of digging up the yard and repairing the supply or sewer line, which can cost thousands of dollars. The coverage is good for 90 days after the inspection or 22 days after closing, whichever comes later.
Palos Hills home inspectorNo spelling error here!! Our home inspector will document your major appliances model and serial numbers and submit them through the RecallChek system. The service will inform you if any of the major appliances have a recall, and how to have them REPAIRED/REPLACED FOR FREE. This service is continued for life; you can add appliances as you acquire them and even add family members appliances.

home inspection mokenaYou will have access to alarm system discounts that are only available through our home inspection service. You cannot find these discounts anywhere else. This is a great value whether you have an existing system or are thinking of adding an alarm system to your new house. Protect your property and family for less. There is no obligation.

The GUARANTEE provides you with satisfaction and protection. If you are not satisfied with my services at any time during the home inspection, I will refund* your money on the spot. *I must be informed of dissatisfaction before I leave the premises. A report will not be generated or delivered to the client.

There is no "Perfect House"

There is a perfect house for you, and you will know it when you find it. There is no such thing as a "perfect" house as far as defects or issues are concerned, see our home inspection photo galleries. I have performed home inspections in Oak Forest, Crestwood, Palos Hills, Mokena and Oak Lawn and have yet to find a defect free house. All houses have some defect or characteristic that may, or may not, be a an issue to you. This is why you need a home inspection. Finding and educating you about those issues is what Merino's Home Inspection & Education is all about. I inspect the property and you decide if it is an issue. It is more than just an inspection, it is an education. I take pride in not only inspecting your house, but also educating my clients about the house and its components. I do not have to find a defect or issue to educate my clients about the house, system, or components.

Whether you are buying or selling a house, it can be stressful. For most people, this is the largest purchase that they will make. Some home buyers spend as little as 15 minutes viewing a house before deciding to purchase. With all the time and effort involved in finding a Realtor, financing, and viewing houses; when will you really get to take a close look at your house? Merino's Home Inspection & Education Inc. can fulfill that need for you. I am looking out for you.

I may be known as an Oak Forest home inspector, but I am also a Palos Hills home inspector, Mokena home inspector, Oak Lawn home inspector, Crestwood home inspector, and a home inspector in many other areas.

Inspections performed 7 days/week.
