Frequently Asked Questions

A commercial building inspection is necessary to ensure the safety, functionality, and compliance of the property. Without one, problems that require immediate attention, hurt the property’s value, or will impact operations in the future may be missed.

A commercial building inspection involves a comprehensive assessment of the property’s condition. This includes structural integrity, mechanical systems, electrical components, plumbing, HVAC systems, and other critical areas of the property. Covering all accessible areas of the interior and exterior of the building, such as roofs, attics, crawlspaces, and mechanical rooms, these inspections aim to identify any existing or potential issues or hazards.

Common issues found during commercial inspections may include structural defects, electrical problems, plumbing leaks, HVAC system issues, roofing issues, safety hazards, code violations, and more.

Generally, it can range from a few hours to a full day, but the duration of a commercial building inspection varies based on the size, complexity, and condition of the property.
