 Since I started SLS Home Inspections as a Kankakee and Bourbonnais home inspector in 2007, I have used my 30+ years of lumber, contractor, and wholesale building materials sales and service experience to help home buyers understand the issues and explain the concerns of their new home. A Kankakee area real estate Home Inspection is an important part of any home sale. I service cities and towns in Kankakee, Will, Cook and Iroquois counties including Bourbonnais, Bradley, Kankakee, Manteno, Momence, Watseka, Wilmington, Herscher, Peotone, Beecher, Frankfort, New Lenox, Richton Park, Matteson, Monee, Mokena, Coal City, Clifton, Chebanse and more.

I provide every client with same day delivery of a detailed narrative style inspection report (never a checklist style) with an easy to read summary page including digital photos.

Every client also receives a free copy of "The Ultimate Home Book", a 96 page guide to preserving the value of your home.

I include a FREE Recallchek appliance service with every inspection. Free repair of any safety recalled appliance. Recallchek flyer for you, click here.

I include a FREE 90 day Limited Homeowners warranty, for your peace of mind. 90 day warranty info

Also included is FREE SEWER GARD sewer and water line backup repair protection up to $4000 for the first 90 days. And this coverage is extendable. Talk about peace of mind. 

Another great feature of your inspection is MoldSafe. This covers the remediation up to $2000 if you discover mold that was not visible at the time of the inspection. 

Next there is the Platinum 5 year Roof Protection Plan. This does just what it says. Covers the repair of leaks for up to 5 years or $3000 total. 

Finally, the NXT Structural warranty is included with every inspection for every home buyer and includes a $10,000 warranty on the structural elements of a home such as beams, posts, joists, rafters and foundations. That is true peace of mind. 

Brand new and now available, the 18 month Simple Home Warranty. It has simply and without question, the best and most complete coverage home warranty in the business. Simple Home Warranty Page

I am also certified for mold and air quality testing. My lab sends the results the same day they receive the samples. We can help you get back your healthy home.

I will be your building consultant for life, when you stop calling with questions, I'll stop answering them.

If your first deal falls through for any reason, there is a $100 discount for a second inspection of a different home within 30 days after first inspection with the same Realtor. 

I accept Visa and Mastercard, Discover, Amex and Paypal, checks or cash.

Testimonials for Scott Seaton Jr. Bourbonnais Kankakee IL Home Inspector

  • Wendy L.

    Mr. Seaton is wonderful. He took the time to explain the mold testing, and the results that may follow. He was very professional; He knew where there could be a problem and where there was not likely to be one. He was fair and upstanding in his pricing, and did not do any mold tests that were not needed. He is very kind and helpful, very conscientious and trustworthy. I am thankful that I called him for analysis of my home, and would strongly recommend him.

  • N. Haskins

    My husband and I hired Scott to do a home inspection on our condo early last year. We were very happy with the results, especially the thorough explanation of what was needed for our home to be safe and secure when we decided to purchase.
    He made sure to explain everything to us in paperwork after the inspection, and he answered any questions we had in a friendly and polite way.
    We would definitely use him again.
