Andrew MacDonald


Are you concerned about the condition of a property you're under contract to purchase? You should be – in many cases the owners of the property are not even aware of its exact condition. A professional property inspection completed by a trained, certified, licensed and experienced home inspector can give you the unbiased information you need to know about the property's current condition.

 MacDonald Property Inspections focus on providing accurate information and answers to prevalent questions clients ask when they are buying a home or selling an existing property. Plus, our company will enhance your home inspection with Infrared Thermal Imaging Technology, which helps identify concealed issues that no one knew existed. Most home inspection companies do not use thermal imaging due to the cost of the equipment and the rigorous training and certification required to operate the camera. We do! The bottom line will be receiving a paramount home inspection that includes thermal imaging technology. 



Licensed Professional Home Inspector 450.003089 Certified Level 1 and Building Science Thermographer.


My company focuses on providing ACCURATE answers to common questions every home or business buyer asks when they need a home or building inspection. My Infrared Inspections offer a significant advantage over typical visual inspections.

Mr. MacDonald was very timely and accommodating of my needs in obtaining my home inspection. His thoroughness in inspecting, testing, notation, etc., is outstanding ! He is very knowledgeable in current and proper coding, spotting possible problems, recommending solutions or things to be under constant care of. Mr. MacDonald was very clean and professional, and cleaned up behind every area/space that he examined so that the homeowner had no mess to contend with. I will most definitely use Andrew MacDonald again; and would highly recommend him to any new or experienced home buyer. He spent more than ample time during the inspection; time going over things on the spot; and provided a written and documented report within hours of the completion of the inspection.Mr. MacDonald is accessible to discuss any part(s)of the inspection report; and to answer any questions that a home buyer might have. To me, this speaks highly of professionalism, customer service,and appreciation of my business.
