Tinley Park Home Inspector

How many homes did you visit to find that special home that is just for you? How much time did you take to really look at the house and its systems and components that make up a house; fifteen minutes? Thirty minutes? Most people are not able to access or assess the systems of a house with a few visits of limited time.

ll Tinley Park home inspections are not the same.

Your goal is to learn the condition of the home you are purchasing. The home inspectors goal should be the same as your goal, unfortunately, this is not always true.

Our Tinley Park home inspections provide you with the condition and the education that you need to make an informed decision.
I like the small town feel of the area as you drive down Oak Park Avenue. Many of the homes that line Oak Park Ave are actually businesses. The metra station has recently been remodeled and offers transportation to downtown Chicago.
Tinley Park is located in both Cook and Will Counties, 23 miles S of the Loop, and has three zip codes 60477, 60478, and 60487. There is much evidence of Native American residents in the area of Tinley Park, especially at the Oak Forest site to the east of town. The site, on the Tinley Moraine, overlooking a marshy area of glacial lake plain, dates to the 1600s. The 1816 Indian Boundary Line crosses to the southeast of the village.

After the John Fulton family from New York arrived in 1835, a community developed, with the early names of the “English Settlement” and Yorktown. As large numbers of Germans arrived in the 1840s it became known as New Bremen, after their port of departure. Bremen Township was organized in 1850. The Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific Railroad arrived in 1852 and became an important asset in the area's early growth and economic development. In 1892 the village was incorporated and named Tinley Park, in honor of Samuel Tinley, Sr., the longtime Rock Island station master.

Tinley Park developed as an agricultural service center. In 1869 a grain elevator opened, and a Dutch-style windmill was constructed in 1872. In the 1890s a soft-drink bottling plant opened and operated until the 1940s. Telephone service began in 1898 and a municipal water system was built in 1899. In 1905 the Diamond Spiral Washing Machine Company built the first factory in Tinley Park. In 1909 an electric utility was created by local businessmen.

The village had a population of 300 by 1900 and grew very slowly until World War II. After the war young families from Chicago were attracted by the affordable housing. From 1950 the population doubled every decade until 1980, and Tinley Park was one of Cook County's fastest-growing communities; 80 percent of the housing stock has been built since 1970. In recent years larger, more expensive houses have been built and the village continues to annex land. Tinley Park became the home of the World Music Theater, which changes names depending on the sponsor, and has experienced major commercial growth as industrial and office parks located along the I-80 corridor. The village is committed to “controlled growth,” however, with the goal of maintaining a livable community. Population had grown to 48,401 by 2000.

Tinley Park's residents have included John Rauhoff, who created Ironite, an additive for waterproofing cement which was important in the building of Hoover Dam. John Poorman invented an improved chicken brooder. The Bettenhausen family produced famous Indianapolis 500 drivers.

Tinley Park has been working to preserve its history. The area of the old 1892 village has been designated a historic district, where property owners are encouraged to restore and preserve their historic buildings and homes. The Carl Vogt Building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and has been restored and is now used for commercial purposes. The Tinley Park Historical Society has renovated the Old Zion Landmark Church for use as its museum and headquarters.
