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.
Interior: electrical, plumbing, flooring, mold, dry rot, fire suppression systems, first aid stations, mechanical, HVAC-R equipment, boilers, HWH “hot water heaters”gas fired equipment, ventilation, 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 & all contribute to air leakage and higher energy bills. These areas are inspected and noted on the report.

After we provide our professional visual inspection on the home or business, there are a few more interesting procedures you may consider.
Chimney Inspection Video: The interior lining of a fireplace chimney should be inspected prior to the purchase of a home, this may save you an additional expense. This inspection should be done after the chimney has been cleaned. We check for cracks and defects that are not covered by a standard inspection.
Pressurization test inspection on a home or business that has gas fired appliances: Very important that all fossil fuel appliance's will draft properly and burn efficiently. Back drafting of carbon monoxide will happen when a home has negative pressure. Exhaust fan's, leaky HVAC ductwork will cause negative pressure.
HVAC Airflow measurements and temperature difference in the duct system would pay for itself in the long run. Taking temperature measurements from the supply and return duct system will provide information on efficiency and defects. Taking airflow CFM measurements will also provide operational defects if any.
Air quality testing for mold, mildew, asbestos, CO / CO2, Formaldehyde, PCB’s.
