Exterior: soil erosion, parking, lighting, foundations, slabs, 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! More importantly ADA-”American Disabilities Act”, compliance for our disabled.
The roofing structure and framing of each building is of the most importance, main support beams 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.

Radon testing is something we also conduct utilizing electronic equipment, sewer pipe scope inspection when needed. Windows, doors, glazing areas, insulation & all contribute to air leakage and higher energy bills. These areas are inspected and noted on the report.
Commercial Building 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.
Regardless of the level of Commercial Building Inspection (Property Condition Report) ordered, our inspector will find:
Improper maintenance or worn systems
Equipment nearing the end of its useful life
Building code violations
Most building failures or issues will surface long after the warranty has expired. Inspecting new buildings are as important as existing buildings TEN years old or older.
We utilize many methods including our building science technology to provide a higher level of inspections for our clients. We inspect small to large commercial buildings with professional detailed satisfactory results. Give us a try to see the difference.
Indoor Air Quality Testing
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.
