Certified Commercial Property Inspections
Commercial buildings and business properties are on a whole different scale then your average residential property. Before you sign a commercial contract and perform your due diligence, ensure that the building is structurally and aesthetically sound so you can make an informed offer. We will fully assess the structure from top to bottom including items such as vertical lift systems, parking garages and lots, and life/safety/fire protection systems.
Covering Many Different Commercial Properties
Whether you’re a building owner, property manager, leasing agent, lender, or tenant, a commercial property inspection can provide a thorough and accurate assessment of your building and assist you in making the best possible decisions. Commercial properties can vary greatly, such as apartment buildings, industrial buildings, office buildings, retail spaces, restaurants, and more. No matter the square footage or type of commercial building you have, be sure you have it professionally inspected.
Having a commercial inspection is usually required for opening or transitioning a business. In any negotiation, knowledge, and documentation is power.

Detailed Inspection Reports
Buying a property can be a stressful experience, so be sure to choose someone who has your best interest in mind, and can provide you with the right information needed to make the best decision. Each residential inspection is documented in a detailed inspection report, complete with high-quality images, detailed analysis, and recommendations. The report covers the condition of the home’s heating system; central air conditioning system; interior plumbing system; electrical system; roof, attic, and visible insulation; walls, ceilings, floors, windows, and doors; the foundation, basement, and all structural components. The inspection report is sent to you online shortly after the inspection is completed. Each report is mobile-friendly and can easily be copied and pasted if you need to share the information with anyone.
Covered in Every Home Inspection:
The main water shutoff valve is located. Faucets and showers are checked for visible leaks, and the water pressure is tested. The types of pipes used are identified, if visible.
Wires are identified, all outlets are tested and verified that there are GFCI’s installed where needed to protect from electrical shock. The electrical panel is inspected for safety issues and fire hazards.
Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning system. Determine the age of the furnace and/or air system, whether or not they function properly, and possibly recommend repairs or maintenance needed.
Identify the age of the water heater and check that it has been properly installed. Determine the condition of the unit and possibly give an estimated remaining life span.

Inspect all exterior walls for damaged or missing siding, cracks, or excessive soil contact which can be an invitation for pests. Check the foundation for possible cracks or settling.
Check to ensure that the ground slopes away from the house, which prevents water from entering the house or causing damage to the foundation. Identify any problematic, soggy areas.
