Along with general home inspections, we offer commercial building inspections. Commercial inspections are just as important as home inspections, for many reasons. When dealing with such a large investment, it is vital to protect your interests with a commercial building inspection.
What is a Commercial Inspection?
A commercial building inspection is a thorough, objective examination of a commercial building. They are performed by an impartial party, to assure that you are getting the most accurate, unbiased report possible.
Although a client may request inspection of a smaller representative sampling of units and systems, a commercial inspection is usually more thorough. These inspections typically include a general observation of the condition of internal and exterior walls, structural frame, and the roof. They also include a survey of the condition of exterior parking, pedestrian surfaces, and interior floors. Plumbing, electrical, heating, and cooling equipment are also examined during commercial building inspections.
The amount of time the inspection will take varies on the type and size of the building being examined. A comprehensive report is generated following the inspection. This report will include detailed descriptions of the condition of the building, as well as any recommended repairs and possible safety hazards.
Why You Need a Commercial Inspection
Most investors are concerned with the bottom line, rather than having any emotional connection to the property. It’s important for you to know any potential repair costs before finalizing the purchase of such a large acquisition. While the condition of a home can cost owners thousands of dollars in repairs, the condition of a commercial property can cost the investor hundreds of thousands. Though a commercial building inspection may seem like an extra expense, it can save you a significant amount of money in the long run.
An uninspected building can also present liability risks to the buyer. If a building contains safety hazards that may have been discovered during an inspection and someone ends up injured, the owner may be liable. A thorough commercial property inspection can help alleviate these concerns, as any potential hazards or needed repairs will be discovered and documented. A commercial inspection serves as a safeguard for the property owners by informing them of any possible building damage as well as safety hazards.
