The Commercial Inspection Report outlines existing deficiencies and identifies potential problems. The report includes a visual evaluation of the condition of the property and building. The report is provided to the client a few days after the inspection has been conducted.

A Commercial Building Inspection will provide you with a report that outlines a prioritized list of minor repairs, major repairs, and maintenance items. This list will help to give you an overview of the investment you are about to make.

The main difference between a residential inspection and a commercial building inspection is specific to a variety of factors: age, occupancy and type of construction.
