About Us

IMG_1064

Hello my name is Dan C. Morgan and I am the owner and operator of Danny Inspections.

In 1997 my family stumbled upon two dilapidated buildings. I didn’t know it at the time but those two buildings would change my life. After looking over the two properties with very little construction experience, there was little doubt that we were in over our head.  “I have never seen buildings in such deplorable conditions on the inside in my life. However, the buildings were beautiful grey stones. Our family, stubbornly optimist with visions of property ownership, acquired the properties.

From do-it yourself to a Professional

After acquiring the two properties, we could not find qualified individuals to help us rehab the two structures. I would leave my credit card consultant business daily, just to go by to inspect the properties and to analyze the scope of work. During these activities, I became more and more determined to pull off the impossible (I was going to rehab the property myself).

I have always been fascinated with the construction industry and the acquisition of the two properties increased this fascination. I researched every aspect of the construction industry relating to residential properties and all of their systems and components. I began to pull off the impossible, I did it! (I completed the rehabilitation project) I was hooked. I received my carpentry journeyman card in 2005; I then paired those skillsets to the skillsets of my previous professions to bring (in my opinion), the very best residential and light commercial inspection services to the Chicagoland area.
