Why Commercial Inspections are Important
A commercial building inspection will give you a better idea about the condition of a property. Knowing the condition of a building will allow you to budget more accurately and provide for expenditures down the road – whether it’s a new roof, HVAC or simply maintenance items. Not knowing this information, or worse yet guessing, can have serious consequences.
Purchasing a commercial building or property can be a very anxious time with doubts, deadlines and so on. Reducing or removing uncertainties can make your real estate transaction go smoother. The same holds true when you lease as well, by knowing the condition of the building and property from the outset. When constructing a new building it’s a good idea to have progress inspections carried out on it. These are tailored to meet your needs and often involve looking at blueprints and specifications for the building to ensure it’s being built as intended. It’s not uncommon to uncover variances during this process, which can often be remedied in less time and at less expense if detected early enough versus waiting until the building is constructed.
Investigative or Single Component Inspections
Single or multi-purpose inspections are another cost effective way to address items concerning you in a building as well. Whether it’s the electrical system, roof or foundation, Capital Infrared can visit the property to specifically inspect those areas that need to be looked at. It doesn’t matter if you’re buying or looking at making repairs or improvements.
If you’re considering adding-on to an existing building or making enhancements, its best that you consider having it inspected before, during and after its completion. This will assist you in the design and planning stages as well as determining whether the contemplated work is feasible and can be done in a practical manner thereby reducing your risk of time delays, costly overruns, and having construction carried out that doesn’t meet with your approval.
Our inspection reports include detailed descriptions of the existing physical components, observed current conditions in need of repair, immediate repair or replacement cost projections, and five-year projection of anticipated major capital costs.
With the investment in commercial properties so significant, it’s no wonder why so many purchasers, owners, and lessees consider a building inspection mandatory!
