"Mr. Clark was one of the most professional and pleasant contractors I have dealt with.  I was totally impressed with his communication, professionalism, and thoroughness.  His recommendations were not based on selling more products for him or any other specific contractor.  He made himself available for future questions following a thorough written report that he delivered promptly after the inspections.  I appreciate his quality of work and being here when he promised.  Hire him if you want the best."–Ron K., Glen Ellyn

"Jim did an excellent job of going through my house and allowing me to look over his shoulder. His advice was sound. I appreciate the quality of time he spent going through everything. I also like the fact that I continue to be able to contact him with my questions. I would highly recommend True Blue Home Inspections. "–Irma A., Chicago, IL

"He explained in detail what his services entailed, what my options were and what the best choice for me would be (and it was not the most expensive option).  He arrived promptly and was friendly and professional.  I received his report the following day.  I would definitely recommend him."–A Neighbor, Chicago, IL
