My Commercial property Inspection
Included in what I inspect are restaurants, storage facilities, manufacturing facilities, industrial properties, retail stores, office buildings, churches, warehouses, medical centers, apartment buildings, strip malls and vacant properties in San Diego, Riverside, and Orange Counties.
Let me inspect your commercial property to ensure its overall condition and safety. Remember that your liability can extend to customers, occupants, and employees, so make sure that your building’s structure, plumbing, electrical, and HVAC are functioning properly and safely. If there are issues that need to be addressed, I can make the appropriate recommendations for licensed professionals who can advise you on specific maintenance and repairs.
Certified Inspection Services, LLC uses the International Standards of Practice for Inspecting Commercial Properties as a baseline for performing commercial property inspections. The International Standards of Practice for Inspecting Commercial Properties is designed as a baseline from which the inspector and client can develop and agree to a scope of work that may deviate from this Standard, depending on budget, time constraints, age of the subject property, purpose of the inspection, and the risk-tolerance of the client. The level of due diligence should be set where the cost, in time and money, of acquiring information about the subject property will not likely exceed the value of that information.
Certified Inspection Inspection Services, LLC. maintains a high level of business ethics and abides by the Code of Ethics developed by the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI) to promote a high standard of professionalism, business ethics and inspection procedures for inspecting commercial properties.
What I Inspect
I inspect the exterior, roof, foundation, HVAC, electrical, plumbing, attic and insulation, doors, windows, and interior. Specialized systems such as fire sprinkler, electrical, and refrigeration may also require the services of a State licensed contractor to assist in the inspection under my supervision.
Pricing for a commercial inspection is dependent upon many factors. The following items are some of the criteria used by me to determine the fee for a commercial inspection:
- The square footage of the building or structure
- The age of the building or structure
- The amount of time required for me to be on site.
- The types of specialized inspections that might be required.
- The thoroughness of the report, based upon the type of inspection being performed
In preparation of the walk-through survey portion of the inspection, please have the seller provide me copies of as many of the following documents as can be reasonably procured:
Accessibility surveys, building plans, appraisals. Certificates of Occupancy, citations/infractions, plans and construction permits, deck and balcony maintenance, power-washing, painting, treating, repair and modification history, environmental studies, emergency evacuation plans, evacuation drill records, elevator inspection records, fire sprinkler quarterly & 5 year inspections records, fire-door inspection reports, fire-prevention plans, fire-extinguisher service records, fire records, flame-resistant certificates, floor plans, floodplain maps, kitchen grease-cleaning records, kitchen post-fire inspections, maintenance records, manufacturers' installation instructions, notices, permits, power-washing records, previous inspection reports, proposals, rent rolls, repair estimates and/or invoices, safety inspection records, seller disclosures, utility bills, and warranties.
I use the latest technology
I use the latest tools and technology to get the most accurate results possible. I encourage you to attend your inspection so that I can describe my process, explain my findings, point out important maintenance items, and answer all of your questions. Armed with my detailed inspection report, you can make an informed decision about whether the problems I discover are worth fixing or walking away from—whether the good outweighs the bad. It will also give you negotiating power with the seller. Should you have any questions down the road, please give me a call at (760) 542-8020, or email me at Frank@CISmailbox.com, and I will do my best to help you.
