Windy City history

Windy City Home inspection, Inc. was founded in 1999 by Jarrod Spadino. Jarrod chose to start his own home inspection company after serving four years in the Navy where he worked on the aircraft of the John F. Kennedy. His primary duty was to inspect aircraft (A-6 Intruders) before and after launches. Following his service in the Navy, Jarrod lived in Maryland for eight years where he worked as a window washer on high-rise buildings. You could often see him dangling from ropes several stories above the street as he performed his duties. Jarrod then moved to Illinois (where he now lives with his wife Pamela and two sons,  Chase and Wylie) to pursue his goal of owning his own home inspection company. Windy City Home Inspection is now celebrating more than 20 years in educating home buyers through the home inspection process. With a strong focus on customer service and a desire to meet and exceed client expectations, their reputation has spread and made Windy City one of the fastest growing inspection companies in the country.

All of Windy City’s home inspectors are licensed through the state of Illinois and certified through the American Home Inspectors Training Institute. We specialize in residential, commercial and mold inspections and also offer services for radon, termite/pest and EIFS/DryVit. At Windy City Home Inspection, Inc., we perform inspections to the highest standards…yours. Windy City is committed to excellence. Our inspections exceed the nationally recognized standards of practice. We are certified by the American Home Inspectors Training Institute and backed by a consulting team with over 60 years of experience.

Never thought home inspections could be FUN. Jarrod was extremely professional, but delivered details and knowledge as if discussing home improvements with your best friend. There wasn’t a question that he dismissed. He took his time, catered to our curiosities, provided great feedback, took double (or triple takes) on areas that we (as the customer) wanted to re-iterate on.  Overly appreciative of his expertise, thoroughness, and knowledge.  HIGHLY RECOMMEND

Jarrod was a pro. He was great at walking me though the entire process and I came out learning a few tips to make sure my home is safe.

John B.
Chris had a high level of professionalism and proficiency when it came to conducting the inspection. You can tell he knows exactly what he’s talking about. Definitely an asset to the business!
Bruno M.
Great experience. Scott was detail-oriented and empathetic. He also provided some safety lessons along the inspection procedure.
Jackie Z.
Great experience over all! The inspector was early, very thorough, friendly, professional and took the time to answer all of our questions. We received the report very quickly as well. We also requested a Radon test which was a very smooth process.
Jenelle W.
They were prompt and reasonably priced. Provided a detailed report with a walk through at the end of the inspection outlining every comment. Provided answers to all questions regarding reported items. Richard was detailed and friendly.
