Commercial Property Inspection
Is a Commercial Building Inspection the same as a home inspection?
A Commercial Real Estate Inspection is much more inclusive than a home inspection:
The commercial property includes any and all features of the property that can safely be tested or inspected, not just a predetermined list that excludes non-standard items such as security alarms, elevators and industrial machinery. The commercial property inspection is only limited by what is accessible, visible, and safe to test.
WHY DO I NEED A COMMERCIAL INSPECTION & HOW DO I CHOOSE THE RIGHT PROPERTY INSPECTOR?
You need a Commercial Inspection of the Real Estate Property you are considering for the same reasons as a Home Inspection, plus some others that are unique to a commercial property such as: Larger Investment, Larger Risk, Much Larger Repair Cost, Larger Liability, Main Income Source, Do or Die Investment, Group or Family Investment, Corporate Investment, Share Holder Investments, and many more reasons.
You are about to open your new business with customers from all over the surrounding area walking through your doors, or workers coming there every day to work, or whatever the nature of your business will be. You want your business to be safe, as well as know that everything "is working" the way it should.
A leaking roof, a bad air conditioner or power that "goes out" all the time can disrupt your new business and cost you sales. You need to be able to concentrate on your new business, not your building. You need the peace of mind that comes from knowing your commercial building and it's systems have been carefully checked out and there will not be any "surprises" while you're trying to get your new Houston business up and running.
WHAT DOES A COMMERCIAL PROPERTY INSPECTION INCLUDE?
We specialize in an array of commercial inspections and services to help you make a sound decision about a property's potential. Our team of professional inspectors are certified, trained, and equipped to inspect multi-family housing, offices, restaurants, medical facilities, warehouses, retail stores and strip malls, churches and commercial- industrial structures.
We take pride in our ability to address your commercial inspection needs. Once we understand what you want to accomplish, we will tailor our services to meet the scope of your project or transaction. Initial inspections are general condition assessments based on a visual review of readily accessible areas at the time of inspection. Vanguard Property Inspections is a full service company; and therefore, in addition to the standard inspection, we also offer an extensive menu of specialized inspections to meet your needs.
Our detailed and thorough Dallas professional inspections evaluate all aspects of the real estate property you are purchasing, from the roof to the foundation and all areas in-between. Your commercial real estate inspection includes the following:
Property foundation conditions, structural integrity, interior & exterior walls, ceilings, flooring, floor coverings, stairwells, railing, fire egresses, doors, windows, cabinets and adherence to commercial building requirements. A complete evaluation of attic and roof structure integrity and stability, ventilation and insulation is performed to include fire breakers and radiant-thermal barriers.
We thoroughly inspect the foundation status and conditions, structural integrity, current and expected future structural issues, property drainage, guttering, run-off, swales, site elevations, flooding potential, landscaping patterns and completeness are also evaluated. The structures roofing integrity, slopes, valleys, peaks, ridges and roof coverings are completely inspected.
We perform a thorough and complete evaluation of all visible plumbing pipes, drains, shut-offs, exterior hose bibs and electrical switches, plugs, covers, wiring, sub and main electrical panels, grounding and electrical system bonding. The hot water systems and all visible supply and discharge lines are reviewed. We also perform plumbing and electrical system functionality and load test.
The properties electrical conditions, interior & exterior walls, doors, cabinets, attic and roof structures, ventilation and insulation properties are evaluated. Your professional Dallas home inspection also includes all appliances, gas fixtures & lines, HVAC (AC) systems, but is not limited to these alone, we also inspect over 200 other individual items.
Your Professional Inspection also includes all appliances, gas fixtures, gas shut-off valves, meters & lines, HVAC systems, drip-drain pans and furnaces, but is not limited to these alone. We also inspect over 200 other individual interior and exterior components. We have developed our own commercial real estate inspection software and report through many years of refinement to allow us the flexibility to tailor the report to our client’s property needs. We offer you the same degree of service in every commercial inspection we perform. Our completed comprehensive real estate inspection report is delivered within 72 hours from the inspection completion date; no other home inspector offers the same degree of service.
We do not simply have a Commercial Inspection checklist, our Professional Real Estate Inspection Services are based on experience, knowledge and a constant pursuit of perfection. We offer the same dedication and devotion I put into every Home Inspection I perform. Did I also mention, that your completed comprehensive report is delivered the same night of the inspection, to my knowledge, no other Home or Commercial Inspector offers the same degree of service. Most inspectors take 24-48 hours to deliver your report, I have heard of some horror stories of inspectors taking a week or more to get the Inspection Report to their client.
Our technical knowledge is certainly important, but just as important is our ability to promptly deliver your inspection report. Our inspection reports are web-based, and you will receive your report electronically, typically within 48-72 hours of the inspection completion date depending on the size and scope of the inspection project and inspection report requirements. Our commercial reports are concise and categorized by field, issue, building, floor, unit, and area. Allitems are supported with a short narrative and color digital photos.
