Logan Square Home Inspection
Who We Are

We are Qualified & Professional Worker

Pignotti Property Inspections began in 1988 as a Chicago-based, family-owned business with a background in construction project management, remodeling and architecture. 2022 marks the 34th year of service. All types of structures are reviewed including single-family homes, townhouses, condominiums and multi-unit buildings. New construction property inspections have increased over the past few years as clients are recognizing that new does not necessarily mean quality workmanship or that it has been properly reviewed by the municipal inspector. Additional services include Preventative maintenance inspections, new construction inspections, warranty review inspections, environmental (mold, radon, lead and asbestos) testing and consultations.

The inspection process is informative and clients often conclude it was a fun experience. They are provided a comprehensive report which is clear and easy to understand. It identifies the deficiencies and clients also gain understanding of how systems and components interact. Many routine maintenance repairs are also discussed.

All inspections comply with the American Society of Home Inspectors’ Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics. PPI inspectors are state licensed, members of ASHI, the Great Lakes Chapter of ASHI.

Pignotti Property Inspections is an independent and unbiased organization. The goal is to complete an objective evaluation and present a well-documented report so our clients can make an informed decision. We hope you join us.

Our Team

The Expert Team

“We recently had a home inspected by Michael Pignotti. We spent a good amount of time speaking with Michael on the phone to determine our comfort level with what we hoped would be a quality inspection. After our phone call we were feeling good about what we expected would happen. Michael lived up to and exceeded our high hopes for the home inspection. He was reluctant to put a time length on the inspection which was different from other inspectors we spoke with. Michael performed a thorough inspection of our home from the roof peak to the lowest point in the basement and all parts between. We shadowed him for most of the nearly 5 hours it took to do the inspection and he willingly provided commentary and answered questions at will. We would use Michael again and will recommend him to friends, family and neighbors without hesitation. It was a pleasure to have him and his vast amount of knowledge of the industry at our disposal. It was also great to see that Michael had every tool and tester he needed with him, available and in good working order so that he could do a quality job. We want to thank you for the great job that you did and feel free to use us anytime as a reference for any of your future customers”

“Since I first met Michael on an inspection over 10 years ago and saw how thorough and concerned he was I have never referred a buyer to any other inspector. I also like how he teaches home maintenance to the home-buyer during the inspection process.”

“Pignotti Property Inspections has done a number of inspections for my clients over the years and has always been thorough, prompt and made the clients feel comfortable. Michael has a wonderful rapport with clients, explaining functions of various pieces of equipment, conditions in the home and what to do once the sale closes to maintain a home. In the last couple of years the inspection service includes a digital reporting system which allows easy access to the inspection report via email which has simplified things tremendously. It's been a pleasure working with you!”

Often times he finds problems which could have been overlooked by other property inspectors. His inspection reports are very concise and detailed and include pictures of particular problems or issues that he comments on. I recommend Pignotti Property Inspections wholeheartedly.”

“Around 25 years ago, I received a call from Michael Pignotti requesting if he could tag along on one of my inspections. Michael had the privilege of being my student on a difficult house to inspect and I had the honor of being his teacher. The inspection was difficult because the home was under a major remodeling project that had not been completed. Mike was like a sponge, soaking up the knowledge quickly and asking intelligent questions. He aided me by being a second set of eyes helping detect problems in the house. I have not had the privilege of spending time with Mike on one of his inspections, but over the years we have kept in contact at ASHI Seminars and exchanged phone calls with inspection questions and answers from each other. Michael's thirst for knowledge and his obvious integrity makes him an excellent inspector in my book.”
