Chicago Building Consulting Services

We offer a wide range of building consulting services to identify the problems of building performance and construction defects. Our building analysis experts can provide you with a detailed, accurate report of any number of issues with your building or construction methods.

Typically construction and remodeling are done according to established practices, not best practices.  As a result, most existing homes have problems that have gone undiagnosed or misdiagnosed for years and across homeowners.  The deficiencies can range from poor insulation, to air leakage & drafts, to improperly sized HVAC systems – and typically a combination of these issues. Insight offers a wide range of building consulting services to identify the problems of building performance or construction defects.  Our expert building analysts will provide you with a clear explanation and detailed report of findings.  As your 3rd-party building consultant, Insight can review work done by subcontractors and provide you peace of mind.

Your Home is a System

Knowing how your home’s systems are supposed to work and how they interact with other systems is essential for improving home performance when remodeling or building a new home – ensuring increased comfort & efficiency and healthier indoor air quality.  

Bigger isn’t always better.  We buy shoes and clothes that fit us just right.  The same should  hold true for systems in a home. 

Eliminate Contractor Errors & Guesswork

Most contractors are experts in one specialty.  Your HVAC tech knows HVAC, the plumber knows hot water heaters, and the insulator knows insulation.  Insight’s team of Home Inspectors & Building Consultants know how these systems operate and interact.  And by using diagnostic testing, we eliminate any guesswork.

Clarity and Insight for your Contractors

When renovating or remodeling your home, you don’t want to install drywall, only to discover that an area was not insulated properly and needs to be opened again.  Or that the bath fan is old & failing and should have been replaced during the remodel.  What are the opportunities for improvement that could be incorporated into your next project from the start? It’s better to learn what you could do, than what you should have done.  Insight is an expert at helping homeowners learn why their homes are frustrating them, how they can be made better, and what the logical, cost-effective path is to that goal. While contractors are good at building and fixing, Insight is an expert at figuring things out. So before finalizing renovation plans, have Insight inspect or test your home.  Making your home improvement plan better starts with Insight.

Insight proudly serves the greater Chicagoland area. Contact Insight now to better understand the requirements, train your employees to the new standards and test your jobs to comply with the code.
