Commercial property inspections

There is quite a contrast to what motivates a buyer of a home versus a purchaser of commercial property. Platinum Property Inspections, certified property inspector in Prescott, discusses commercial property.

A home purchase is quite often all about emotion. Things like, “I really this house,” “what a large beautiful kitchen,” “cozy fireplace,” and on it goes. People usually buy homes because they really “love” things about the home and the location.

On the contrary, commercial real estate purchases deal in money. It is all about investment potential, cash flow possibilities from rent, and tax consequences. The commercial real estate buyer is looking at “the bottom line.” How much will it cost to install the new heating system the building needs. Is a new roof necessary? How do I need to adjust the rents to be able to make a profit?

With commercial inspections, we usually stress the industry standards for life expectancies. These can vary greatly depending on each system and the quality of the original construction. But as a general guideline, the industry standards are as follows:

  • For electrical systems, if it is approximately 50 years old or older, it is time to upgrade it
  • Plumbing is approximately 40 to 60 years depending on many variables
  • Heating and AC systems that are roof mounted are approximately 15 to 17 years of expected life
  • The lifespan for commercial roofing for the most part is approximately 10 to 15 years
  • The structure is the biggest variable. These can last from 70 to 100 plus years depending on many things

5 out of 5 stars After a big flooding in my area, I had a lot of standing water in the basement. I called this company for a thorough home inspection, and they found mold contamination everywhere in the house. Thanks to their remediation plan, my home is back to normal now, and I am confident my family is safe!

5 out of 5 stars They were very clear and helpful as soon as they answered the phone. They scheduled us the very next day. When they came, they went right to work. They explain what they will do very clearly and answer all question thoughtfully. They a have a mobile mini-van that has everything in it, including a printer. You get your home inspection printed out immediately. Very competent people. They also take a credit card, which is nice because ALL our cash was wrapped up in our down payment. I would use them again for sure.

5 out of 5 stars They are incredibly knowledgeable and professional. All of them did a thorough inspection on the home we are planning to buy and then took the time to answer all of our questions on the spot. We left the inspection with a notebook complete with a summary of the inspection, color photos and detailed information on everything inspected. The best part though was their willingness to answer more question several days after the inspection. They truly offer superior customer service before, during and after the job is done.
