Commercial inspections are unique. Often the commercial inspection have more open (warehouse) areas. Typically, the structure is place on a slab foundation with poured concrete walls. Commonly there are false ceilings at the interior areas.
For most people, the purchase of a commercial building is the most expensive decision they will ever make in their lifetime. Unfortunately, it is impossible for the average person to learn enough to ensure the stability of this investment. That is where we come in.
Here, at HISCorp, we are experts in the inspection of single family homes and multiple family homes, townhomes, and condominiums. We continue with the same quality with our commercial inspections. We perform a full, non-intrusive, visual inspection to make sure that the building is up to the standard you should demand from a decision this large. We inspect the foundation, exterior locations (walls, attached covers, steps, porches, guard and hand railings, and patio areas), roof, interior areas (walls, doors, windows, kitchen, bathroom(s), bedrooms, etc.), plumbing systems, electrical systems, heating and air conditioning systems, chimneys, built-in appliances, and garage structures for any material defects*.
The inspection is performed based on the following guidelines:
- CREIA (California Real Estate Inspection Association )
- General building codes
Utilizing the above guidelines, we have developed a full color report that is highly regarded in the industry. We clearly outline any material defects* you will probably want to repair or replace, as well as lesser advisories that we think you should be aware of. It is easy to get caught up in the excitement of purchasing your new home and forget that safety is the most important factor to consider. Let us take the guesswork out of it for you by delivering a comprehensive report with full color images so you can go forward armed with the knowledge you need to make the best decision for you, your family, and your future. We do not make any decisions for you, but we do arm you with the knowledge to make an informed decision for yourself.
All items should be addressed prior to the close of escrow or the end of the contingency prior. *Material Defect: anything that significantly affects the habitability, value, desirability, or safety of the dwelling. Style aesthetics not to be considered in determination.
