How is a Commercial Inspection different from a Home Inspection?
A commercial inspection is different from a home inspection in several fundamental ways:
1. Commercial buildings are not “large homes”, they’re built differently.
2. Homeowners and commercial clients have different priorities, it’s all about the bottom line, “what will this building cost to manage?”
3. Often, the inspector will bring specialists, especially for larger buildings. Elevator specialist, structural specialist, commercial roofing specialist, to name a few.
Why annual commercial inspections are important
Document your property's condition: Documentation is essential when protecting yourself and your property from potential legal issues.
Protect your investment: Annual commercial inspections will allow you to check on the condition of your property and will allow you to catch damage to the building in the early stages and save you time and money in the process.
Make informed decisions: Make informed decisions about your investment by evaluating pros and cons highlighted within a commercial inspection.
Keep up to date with building codes: Building codes change regularly. Not only do these codes change, but the condition of the building may change to a point where it is no longer up to par with the existing regulations.
