Are you looking to buy or sell a building or maybe sign a long-term lease? Before you sign on the dotted line, make sure the property and structure have been thoroughly inspected by a qualified professional.
An inspection is often the only way to get an accurate picture of a building's condition. A fresh coat of paint and a few strategically positioned images can hide significant underlying problems. Even if they are currently working well, old and aged systems will cost you a lot of money in the long run.
Affordable building inspections by Site Inspections strive to provide you with an accurate picture of the structure to have all the information you need to make an informed financial decision. When you recruit us, we'll go over our building inspection checklist with you to ensure that we've looked at every aspect of the structure and that any problems have been brought to your attention.
HVAC stands for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning. You've probably used the word before but aren't sure what it means. HVAC stands for Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning, to put it.
It's easy to see why the HVAC system is at the top of most checklists and would be a big part of every building inspection. Air conditioning systems will last for years if they are correctly maintained. However, an out-of-date or broken device can quickly become inconvenient and costly to repair.
An evaluation of the whole electrical grid should be at the top of anyone's list.
Electricity is not only necessary for modern living and working, but it can also be hazardous if built incorrectly or left to deteriorate. An electrical systems inspection will perform a detailed review to ensure that all cables, systems, and components are in good working order and comply with legal safety requirements.
Since most plumbing systems are shielded, most issues aren't found until they become significant and costly problems. We'll check to see if anything is functioning correctly and search for any leaks, blockages, or damage to the building's pipes.
Compliance with the Building Code
Every state would have its own set of building codes, a set of minimum standards designed to protect people's health, safety, and welfare. Ensuring the building is up to code and finding any places that need to be fixed would be part of the inspection checklist.
Windows and doors
Doors and windows are highly significant, but they are often ignored.
We'll double-check all of the doors and windows on the house, not just to make sure they function but also to make sure they were built correctly. From the outside, windows and doors may appear to be in good condition, but bad construction may be concealed on the inside, posing a significant danger.
Parking Lots and Driveways
As part of the inspection process, we'll look at the driveway and parking lot. Cracks and potholes are obvious warning flags, but we'll also search for places that could suggest problems under the surface. We'll also look at drainage, curbs, and sidewalks to see if they're in good shape.
Smoke Detectors and Fire Sprinklers
Fire sprinkler systems will need to be tested regularly depending on the position of the building and local legislation. It will save you time and money if you do it simultaneously as your building inspection.
It's also crucial to conduct a thorough review to ensure that all smoke detectors are operational.
Budget Estimates and Maintenance Recommendations
Following an inspection, you'll have a clear understanding of what repairs are required and what sort of maintenance is required to maintain your building in good working order. You'll not only get a list of necessary repairs and maintenance suggestions, but you'll also get estimates on how much those repairs could cost.
