I highly recommend Craig Chmelicek of Elite Home Inspection for both home inspections and radon testing. He is very professional to work with, and his reports are quite thorough. The detail is perfect, and the categorization of items inspected makes reading and using the report much easier than a long laundry list as I’ve seen in other inspection reports. I recommend him to anyone thinking of getting an inspection report on a potential home purchase. With the detailed report and photos, you will have no surprises. He is also very helpful in answering any questions that may arise regarding the findings in his report.
You did indeed give us a great deal of confidence in the condition of the home. We were extremely impressed with you professional inspection and report. I especially appreciated you sharing your findings with me as we went along. The report will be of much value over the years. We’re very excited about the house.

I was thinking of buying a condo, and I hired Elite Home Inspections independently of my agent because I wanted to make sure I got a 100% honest inspection. Craig’s service was great, his fee was reasonable, and his printed report was extremely thorough. Everything he told me about what is now my home was correct. I totally recommend him to anyone needing a home inspection.

Craig did a fabulous job! First of all, he worked around the sellers schedule at the last minute to make it work for everyone. Then when I received the inspection report I was absolutely amazed at how thorough he was…he literally went thru every part of the home and even took the time to look under and behind things. After his inspection he took the time to go over the report and showed me some things in the house that I would need to know as a new home owner. Being a single woman I appreciated that more than anything! Then a few months after living in the home when I had a question he took the time to stop by to look at what I was concerned with. Craig went above and beyond and I could not have picked a better home inspector!

Craig at Elite Home Inspections was awesome to work with! He was very professional on the phone when we spoke and very friendly in person. He worked very timely on a short deadline to do the 2 day Radon Test and our Home Inspection. He not only worked with us on the purchase of our new home but I got great feedback from the current home owner on his timeliness, respect and professionalism.
The report he provided was very detailed and we love the maintenance advice portion. This is a great tool to keep up on the routine maintenance items you can easily forget about. I came across Craig by referral of a friend and I will be sure to pass on his referral to anyone I know.

We found Elite Services to be very professional and personable. Craig was thorough in his inspection taking pictures of any problem areas and crawling into tight places wherever he believed necessary. He also took his time to explain what he was finding and how it could be a concern. In our situation, he found several issues which I would not have found until they were problems.
We recommend Craig of Elite Services for an inspection you can trust to be thorough, accurate, and with a personable touch.

Elite Home Inspections LLC conducted the inspection of the house built in 1937 that we purchased in October, 2010. Craig’s comprehensive and detailed review of aspects of the house needing attention complete with photographs allowed us to feel very confident that we were making a purchase with “no surprises.” His report after purchase became an excellent tool for budgeting the repairs and upgrades to the home that were needed, and explaining to repair people what it was we needed done.
Craig Chmelicek was timely and very professional in working with us. We are very satisfied with Elite Home Inspection’s work.

Craig was very professional and great to work with. He was very thorough in his inspection of my new condo and made me feel good about my purchase. He gave us a nice report of the inspection to keep for our records. I would highly recommend him to inspect your new investment!
As first time home buyers, we were unsure of what to expect from a home inspector and the home purchasing process. By the time the process was completed, we were nothing but thoroughly impressed with Craig at Elite Home Inspections, knowledge and professionalism.
All of the items found in the inspection were clearly and concisely reported, and the report was delivered the same day. Craig not only answered all of our questions, but he was very personable and friendly.
We highly recommend Elite Home Inspections!

I contacted Craig with Elite Home Inspections to look at a house that I wanted to buy. Craig was able to fit me into his schedule within a few days. He completed the inspection and brought me a very complete and detailed report to my place of employment so we could discuss what he had found. The report included pictures that helped me understand what he had actually seen; this helped me to visualize the repairs and costs that might be expected.
After the seller had completed repairs that were recommended, I asked Craig to go back and inspect them again to make sure they were done adequately. Being a single mother, I needed the reassurance that they were done right and Craig was more than happy to oblige.
I would recommend Elite Home Inspections to anyone looking for a honest and complete home inspection, Craig went above and beyond and made me a happy home owner.
Thank you Craig
Craig, I wanted to say thanks. I met with them at the office right after you left them. It was so nice to have that summary report right away because we were running short on time. The Initial Inspection was due back today and I didn’t want to push it. I also wanted to pass along that they were so impressed at how professional and knowledgeable you were. And . . . they also said how easy it was to talk to you,said they felt like they’ve known you all along.
Thank you for treating them so well

Craig at Elite Home Inspections is fantastic! Not only does he know his stuff, but he goes the extra mile in giving advice and feedback. We had several questions for Craig, and he was patient with us and knew all the answers. We would definitely use Elite again and will always pass them on as a referral for anyone who is looking for quality, friendly, and honest home inspection person.
