A commercial inspection is a non-intrusive visual observation to survey the readily accessible, easily visible material components and equipment of the building. The inspection is designed to identify material physical deficiencies in the building’s components, systems and equipment as they exist at the time of the inspection.

The term material physical deficiencies means the presence of conspicuous patent defects or material, deferred maintenance of the building’s material system, components, or building equipment as observed during the inspection. The definition specifically excludes deficiencies that may be remedied with routine maintenance, miscellaneous minor repairs, and normal operating maintenance. It excludes incidental conditions that generally do not present material physical deficiencies of the building.

The commercial building report is a narrative inspection report which describes and identifies the inspected systems, structures and components of the building and identifies those material physical deficiencies covered during the inspection. The inspection report contains a representative indication of the property condition at the time of the inspection and is dependent on the information available to the inspector at the time. Photos of deficiencies are included in the report.

The inspection report may also contain recommendations regarding conditions reported or recommendations for further evaluation by appropriate persons.

Report sections include:
  1. Foundations, Basements, and Under-floor areas
  2. Exteriors
  3. Roof Systems
  4. Plumbing Systems
  5. Electrical Systems
  6. Heating and Cooling Systems
