Jason McDonough

"The homes we live in can be complicated with multiple systems, components, appliances and technology working together to provide us with shelter, security, safety and comfort. Knowing how to care for and maintain your home should not be intimidating or difficult. Let me help you create an 'Owner's Manual' for your home to guide you for ongoing maintenance and future planning."

LEARN MORE ABOUT JASON MCDONOUGH

Born in Hamilton, ON and having lived in 7 provinces, I am very comfortable meeting new people and adapting to new surroundings. With a technical engineering education, I have always gravitated to the ‘complex’ issues so home inspection is a good fit for me. Since I bought my first home, I was always fascinated with real estate, the home building process and the skilled trades people that build these homes. With my technical education and background, I hope to offer a comfortable understanding of the home to the current or potential homeowner and instill confidence by providing any support or guidance necessary.

INSPECTOR JASON IS CERTIFIED

Certified Thermographer, Radon Field Technician, Mold Certified

Why did Jason decide to become a Home Inspector?

Working in the manufacturing sector, I gained significant experience and appreciation for the importance of regular and preventive maintenance programs to keep machinery productive, efficient and reliable. In my own experience as a home and cottage owner, I have come to appreciate the importance of the same level of care and maintenance for the buildings we live in. I want to help new and current homeowners navigate the understanding, care and maintenance of their most important investment.
