Whether you’re buying, selling, renting, or leasing a commercial space, getting the building checked out by a qualified property inspector before signing the contract can help you determine if there are any major problems with it. Without the experienced eye of an authorized property inspector, many problems could be overlooked. Phil and the entire Protech Home and Property Inspections team has put together a list to help you understand just what to expect during the inspection so you can feel prepared.
Structure and Grounds Inspection
You can expect your inspector to check out the entire exterior of the building. They will look at its surfaces, exterior equipment, and the surrounding grounds such as stairs, handrails, and paved areas. They want to make sure that everything is in compliance with rules, codes, and regulations.
Interior Walls and Insulation Inspection
All the walls of the building will be evaluated for cracks, water damage, and other problems. If your inspector finds cause for concern, they may recommend further specialty inspections such as a mold inspection.
Windows and Doors Inspection
Not only will they be looking for damage and cracks in these areas, but your inspector will also ensure that the building entries are accessible for emergency personnel.
Electrical and Mechanical Inspection
All electrical switches, outlets, circuit breakers, and ground fault interrupters must be examined to make sure they are in good working order. In addition, your inspector will check all the lights and security systems inside and outside of the building.
Your inspector will check for leaks and make sure there is appropriate water pressure to ensure that the plumbing fixtures are working properly.
