Be Informed

     Our homes are usually our biggest investments. Whether you’re buying, selling or building, a thorough home inspection will provide invaluable information you need to make the right decisions and avoid unforeseen expenses.

     Enter Mackenzie Home Inspections. We always provide a completely thorough and informative inspection achieved through a combination of experience and technology. We encourage you to join us on the inspection and ask questions you may have as we go. We aim to leave our clients with an in depth understanding of the home and its systems.

     After the inspection we will provide a detailed on-line digital report formatted to be easy to understand and navigate. The report is accessible on virtually all of your devices and only by you and those you choose to share it with. Included will be the information you need to know in regards to the condition of the home as well as information and recommendations about any possible areas of concern.

All inspections will be performed with the utmost care. The inspector will wear a single use mask and gloves to ensure the safety of all. We ask that anyone accompanying the inspector do the same. Together we can stay healthy.
