What to Expect From Your Inspection

For transparent & thorough Vancouver Island Home Inspections, trust me to provide the best inspection around.

After all, my name is on the line.

Whether you are buying, selling or maintaining your home, McDonald Home Inspection provides professional and quality service from the moment you call me.
I approach the role of home inspector with a more integrated, “whole-home” approach. Western Canada has among the most stringent of requirements for those wishing to be home inspectors. I am fully trained under the Carson Dunlop home inspector training program and licensed in both Alberta and British Columbia. I have an intimate understanding of not only the rules of proper construction but the underlying principles as well, the reason why things are done the way they are done. In contrast, the typical home inspector comes to the job with a specialized experience in one or two specific fields and merely a desire to do something less strenuous when their knees and back have given out after 30 years of working in the trades.

After we walk through the home together, I will personally explain the general condition of the home and systems with you and your agent. We will talk through any major issues that need to be addressed sooner rather than later. I will also mention the items that you will want to keep an eye on for deferred maintenance. All of this will be detailed in my easy-to-read Spectora report, that will be delivered in HTML and/or PDF format. From that report, you’ll be able to see the items we discussed, with images for reference.
