Home inspection

My girlfriend and I recently purchased our first home together. As first time home buyers we wanted to make sure we had an experienced and professional home inspector and that is EXACTLY what we got. Don McKechnie was on time and ready to work. He told us right out of the gate that he was going to tell us everything bad and good about the house whether we want to hear it or not. He looked everywhere and left no stone unturned. He was very knowledgeable and made sure to explain everything to us. He made several recommendations and I am truly appreciative of his honest and up front approach. Don was very friendly and made us feel comfortable. He has many years of experience and truly enjoys his work and it shows!! I would definately recommend Don (peace of mind home inspections inc) to anyone looking for a PRO who cares. He also has tremendous knowledge and contacts for the best contractors in Durham. Don provides you with a cd of all pictures taken along with a 12 page detailed report with recommendations and all things he found. He was on the roof, in the attic and everywhere testing everything. He writes down all appliance serial numbers and just goes the extra mile. Thank you Don for your professionalism and outstanding detailed report. Don was 10 out of 10!! Everyone should use him!!
I will definately keep his card for the future.

Home Inspection

How do we begin! We called after reading all of the fabulous reviews here, and seeing that the BBB gave Peace of Mind an A-plus rating. Could not be happier! Don was on site before we were, was very friendly, professional and courteous. We felt comfortable asking questions, and not only did he provide excellent service ( everyone is right about how enthusiastic he is about his job!). But he gave us tips and advice on how to take care of a few things in a way even a woman with no familiarity with Home Depot can understnad! LOL. Would absolutely reccommend Peace Of Mind to anyone looking for a Home Inspector, we could not have been more pleased. A genuinely friendly company, who will literally provide Peace of Mind.

Home Inspection

Peace of Mind home Inspections was recommended to me by a coworker who had used their services prior to making a home purchase. Being a first time home buyer, I did not know about a lot of potential problem spots in a house that had some years on it. Don pointed out every single issue - big and small - and explained in detail what course of action I could take to address the issue, as well as the cost of each fix. He took the time to answer all of my questions and explain everything in a way so that someone who doesn't know a lot about home repairs could understand.

Peace of Mind Home Inspections truly lives up to it's name and I would definitely recommend Don to anyone looking for a quality, professional and diligent home inspector.

Excellent detailed Work! There is no question that Don loves what he does, because you can see it in the quality of his services. He is thorough and detailed, very informative and willing to take the needed time to do a quality job. Don will not just go over his findings with you, he provides a detailed report and explains his findings with you.

Peace of Mind Home Inspections Inc. was recommended to me by a friend, and I will do the same in a heart beat.

Thanks Don for real Peace of Mind!

House Inspection

Don is an excellent house inspector. I've been to many inspections in 14 years as a real estate agent and he's at the top of the list. I bought this house for myself. and chose him through Homestars reviews. He's thorough, knowledgeable, efficient, sincere and a pleasure to be with. He's also very well-connected to tradespeople. I highly recommend him.

More about Peace Of Mind Home Inspections Inc.

Many would be resale home buyers are held back by their fear of surprise home repair costs.

Others are willing to opt for a less than perfect resale home, as long as they know just what they are getting into. An unstable foundation, faulty wiring, or a roof that will soon require replacement can be extremely expensive repairs.

Take away the fear of the unknown and close the deal with Peace of Mind Home Inspections Inc. We help ensure that you can make an informed decision about the largest purchase you may ever make.

Credentials:
Worked as a licensed renovator for 18 years, worked with a master electrician for 4 years, finished at the top of my class at Durham college to become a certified home inspector, passed all the required courses to become Wood Energy Technical Training certified, have performed thousands of home inspections since incorporating in 1995, I have completed 10,000 hours of classroom and field experience and have earned acquired the designation of Certified Master Home Inspector.

Inspection Process
Our inspections take at least three hours, with most of our time being spent on the major components of the house:
• Foundation
• Heating and Cooling
• Plumbing
• Electrical
• Roof
• Windows
• Structure
• Insulation

We are not afraid to get dirty. If it means going into crawl spaces, attics, under decks or on roof tops in order to help potential buyers discover problems, then we do it.

We don't just look for symptoms, but also the cause of the problem with the home. Everything we find is detailed in our inspection report.

We also encourage that you participate in the inspection with the inspector. It can be an invaluable learning experience.

We also perform Industrial and Commercial Inspections, renovation consultations and new home warranty inspections . Our price list is available on our website.
