Building Inspection Coverage
Buyers / investors need a professional, knowledgeable and experience company to look out for their best interest. I have personally spent over 35 years in the construction trades. 20 of those years as a licensed general contractor, 10 years in building science. I have literally implemented engineered retrofit buildings to reduce energy consumption by 33% and improved the infrastructure to maintain efficiency health & safety. This involves inspecting to construction of the building envelop top to bottom. From my perspective when visually inspecting buildings exceeds the standard requirements. I spent most of my time as a laborer & business owner to develop the skills as a building inspector. Building Analyst Group Inc, does more than building inspections. We cover indoor air quality, HVAC-R equipment, restaurant equipment and much more.
Exterior: soil erosion, parking, lighting, most importantly ADA-”American Disabilities Act”, compliance for our disabled should be included. Foundation slab & stem wall, roofing material / roofing truss system upper & lower timbers, bearing loads - wind loads - snow loads, cladding - siding, structural framing. Is your building ready for a earthquake? With new laws in effect the exchange of ownership may surprise you! The roofing structure and framing of each building is of the most importance, main supports are sometimes overlooked by less experienced inspectors. The exterior grounds surrounding the building has a large impact on the foundation. Hydrostatic pressures or faulty poor workmanship will cause failure. Commercial buildings are engineered & built different when compared to residential, you need a qualified experienced company.
Interior: electrical, plumbing, flooring, mold, dry rot are part of our inspection process. We also will test mechanical, HVAC-R equipment, boilers, HWH “hot water heaters”gas fired equipment, test paint and drinking water for lead on request. Radon testing is something we also conduct utilizing electronic equipment, sewer pipe scope inspection when needed. Windows, doors, glazing areas, insulation & ventilation all contribute to air leakage and higher energy bills. These areas should be inspected and noted on the report.
Environmental: building testing will conclude if the building has clean or poor air quality. We provide testing on CO, CO2, formaldehyde, PCBs, leading testing in soil, building materials, electronic radon testing, hvac air flow & temperature.
Building testing to evaluate air leakage, moisture intrusion, air quality, gas & oil fired equipment for efficiency, HVAC air balancing, verify energy usage / energy savings plus health & safety concerns.
Commercial inspections should be left up to professionals. Costly mistakes may occur by hiring a regular home inspector for commercial inspections. Always do your due diligence before hiring an inspector. I believe our certifications, knowledge & licensing speaks for itself.
Our Commercial Building Inspections comply with the scope of work specified in ASTM E2018 and includes a comprehensive visual inspection of the building's construction including the following:
Building structure and foundation
Roof condition and remaining useful life
Plumbing fixtures and piping
Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems
