What Our Inspectors Check….

Plumbing: The inspector will check for leaks, will make sure that there is appropriate water pressure, and will check that the plumbing fixtures are working adequately.

 

The structure and grounds: Your inspector will look at the exterior of the building, including its surfaces, exterior equipment, and the surrounding grounds (such as exterior stairs, handrails, and paved areas) in order to evaluate their condition and compliance with rules, codes, and regulations.

 

Interior walls and insulation: The walls will be looked over for cracks, mold (by request), water damage, and other problems.

 

Fire protection: The fire protection systems will be checked out to ensure that they are functioning correctly, including fire alarms, sprinklers, and any other safety equipment.

 

The Roof: The building inspector will check out the roof to make sure that there are no potential or existing problems.

 

HVAC:  The building’s HVAC system will be examined to make sure the duct work and vents have been properly cleaned, that the thermostats are functioning correctly, and that the air filters have been changed when they were supposed to be.

 

Windows and Doors: Windows will also be examined for cracks and damage, and they will ensure that the building entries are accessible to emergency personnel.

 

Electrical and Mechanical: Any lights and security systems (inside or outside) are assessed to ensure that they’re in good working order. The inspector will examine all electrical switches, outlets, circuit breakers, and ground fault interrupters.  

When investing in a major complex commercial real estate asset, trust us to inspect the asset and to identify the immediate repairs and deferred maintenance issues.

When buying a small building or an office within a larger building, you need an inspection that focuses only on issues that are relevant to the purchase. Our inspection and report are focused on issues that are unique to the property and include a complete survey of property conditions. We can deliver a full cost analysis that includes maximum/minimum cost projections and an estimated timeline for repairs and replacement. This information enables a better reflection of the true cost for any given property, and cost may be factored into the negotiated price or budgeted in advance.

The key to a quality Commercial Building Inspection Report is staffing with experience. Our team of assessors are all highly experienced in building inspections and are specialists in structural engineering and environmental assessments.
