)My name is Mark Castillo and I founded Ironclad Property Inspections. My experience began in real estate investments with the rehabbing of single family homes
throughout the Chicago land area over 12 years ago. I later chose to put my money where my mouth was and graduated to purchasing multi-unit rental properties.
Over some time I started a construction company specializing in residential and commercial construction, working hands-on to gain a knowledge of various construction
trades. I was also a licensed EPA lead remediation specialist (License #NAT 127233-1) capable of detecting and removing lead paint according to EPA standards. From investor to tradesman, I placed myself in various shoes and wore many hats.
I place this knowledge and experience in the hands of home owners as a tool in the home buying process. As a licensed inspector, I will work hard to provide thorough
analysis of your new property. Whether you are purchasing as a investor or buying your forever home, I can cater my examination process to the overall objective of the buyer.
In the end, I want all my clients to sleep well knowing that they have chosen a property by ways of a thorough inspection, good communication and a detailed
report. I make a goal to educate myself to newer materials and construction process's to better myself as a inspector.
Lastly, to further my background, I am a Loyola University alumni with a bachelors in business management.
