Commercial Inspections

A commercial building inspection helps you identify potential problems before they become expensive repairs or even worse, unsafe structure. It also gives you peace of mind knowing that your property is safe for tenants and visitors. This type of inspection is required by law in most states. Whether you’re looking for a quick turnaround or a comprehensive inspection, our certified property inspectors are ready to serve you. 


Your commercial building inspector will examine the entire building, including the roof, foundation, plumbing, heating/cooling, electrical system, fire suppression, sprinkler systems, elevator inspections, air quality testing, asbestos abatement, and much more.

The Basics of Commercial Building Inspections

A commercial building inspection involves examining a property to determine whether it meets applicable codes and regulations. This includes performing an overall assessment of the structure and determining whether it is safe and suitable for occupancy. We inspect all aspects of the property including roofing systems, plumbing, electrical wiring, heating/cooling systems, fire protection systems, walls, floors, ceilings, doors, windows, appliances, elevators, sprinkler systems, HVAC systems, roofs, decks, fences, landscaping, parking lots, and other areas where problems could occur. Our inspectors will provide you with an accurate report detailing all findings and recommendations.

What is the goal of a commercial building inspection?

Commercial buildings require regular inspections to make sure everything is working properly. This includes roofing, heating/cooling systems, fire safety, electrical wiring, and plumbing. These types of inspections are important because they help determine how long the structure will last before it needs replacing. In addition, they help reduce the risk of loss due to damage caused by neglect or natural disasters.

We focus on the overall condition of the property and look for items of concern that will likely affect the cost of operation of the building, restrict your intended use, or perhaps expose you to expensive upgrades to comply with the latest building codes if you make improvements to the property. Commercial properties have certain limitations and are generally expensive to keep up with. A commercial property assessment will allow you to identify any potential issues that may affect the building from a physical, financial, and health and safety perspective. This information can potentially be worth thousands of dollars in the future and ultimately helps you determine whether a property is a good investment.
