What is a Commercial Inspection?

A commercial property inspection is based on a walk-through visual inspection and testing of systems within the building to ensure that everything is working properly. 

Exterior Items: 

  • Exterior walls
  • Structural framing 
  • Roofing
  • Parking availability and conditions 
  • Walkways and surfaces 
  • Entryways 

Interior Items:

  • Flooring / general floor surface 
  • Plumbing 
  • HVAC system (Heating and cooling) 
  • Electrical systems 
  • Any appliances or other items that come with the property

Who are Commercial Inspections for?

Clients who are looking for commercial inspections are typically business owners who already own a business and are looking to move locations, or people who are starting a brand new business and realize how important of an investment the building is to their bottom line.

Commercial inspections are important for these business owners because they need to know that the building will fit their needs for their business and future growth.

The building is usually selected because the person already likes the way that the building is constructed and wants to make sure that everything is working properly, or because they like the location, or both. It is vitally important to a company’s bottom line to know the condition of the building structure and it’s major components before making the investment, so that they are able to modify, improve, or enhance the building while meeting sensible budgeting goals.

Both options require a commercial inspector to make sure that the building is a smart purchase.

What are the Most Common Commercial Inspection Findings?

  • Structural and grading defects
  • Plumbing connectivity and drainage problems 
  • Electrical faults

  • HVAC issues
