Commercial Building Inspections Require a Different Approach

I have the knowledge and experience necessary to handle the requirements of commercial building inspections. I realize that your business needs to make a profit, so I provide a more detailed inspection report and focus on the long-term profitability of the property. I'll check for improper maintenance, worn out equipment, faulty craftsmanship, and much more.

Commercial building inspections also include small storefronts.

Unique Challenges of Commercial Building Inspections

The inspection of commercial properties introduces higher demands than those of residential buildings. A business has vastly different needs than a family of five, so a commercial inspection needs to be more thorough and more demanding. Commercial properties tend to be much larger and contain more complex and specialized systems. These systems require special skills and a greater depth, and breadth, of knowledge from the inspector.

Systems Covered in the Inspection

The various systems and areas of concern will vary from one commercial property to another. An office building, for example, is going to have very different requirements from a factory or a church. I'll check for problems, proper functionality, and estimated useful life span where appropriate. The list of systems I inspect includes, but is not limited to, the following:

  • Roof - condition and remaining useful life
  • Structure and foundation
  • Electrical panels and wiring
  • Plumbing fixtures and pipes
  • Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems
  • Attic, if present
  • Crawlspace, if present
  • Pavement systems such as parking areas
