Welcome to GravelCreek Home Inspections, your premier Illinois home inspection company. My name is Robert Rahlfs, CPI. I am a licensed and certified home inspector based out of Chester il

As home inspectors, we appreciate that the background and experience of your potential home inspector is important. You want a home inspector who is not only educated in homes, but also has hands-on experience. That hands-on experience is very important for really evaluating the issues, but the “book” knowledge is very important for fully understanding what is going on.

In that regard, we are very proud of both our training and our background. In addition to being experienced home inspectors, we have a broad knowledge of homes, construction, building science, and construction design.

We gained our hands-on experience through 20+ years in the construction and remodeling industry. This experience has served us well and helps us to give the best home inspection to each and every client.

 We like to help our community as well. Robert gives back to the youth of the community as a Trapshooting Coach and with the Boy Scouts of America and has held several positions including Cub Scout Leader, Assistant Scout Master, and Venturing Crew Advisor. He has also taken the BSA premier leader training program known as “Wood Badge”. Robert is also a dedicated family man with a wife and two sons.
