Commercial Building & Property Inspections

Sequence Property Inspections

Commercial Property Maintenance

Regardless of the size or type of a commercial property, various kinds of maintenance must be performed, including general upkeep, emergency repairs, and special inspections (such as may be directed by an insurance company). But of particular importance for preserving buildings, equipment, and the grounds is preventive (or preventative) maintenance. 

All commercial buildings require some form of maintenance to allow for their continuous use and safe operating conditions. Preventive maintenance is a form of proactive maintenance that can prolong service life expectancies and prevent equipment failure, when implemented appropriately. Preventative Maintenance strategies also promote a reduction in overall maintenance costs, whereas reactive maintenance is typically associated with unplanned downtime and high expenditures for repair or replacement.

Most commercial facilities have more in common than not, including their common critical assets, such as plumbing, electrical, and mechanical equipment. However, certain building types have unique maintenance considerations. Some P
reventative Maintenance programs employ a team of full- or part-time personnel that takes care of a property. Other programs call for hiring a commercial property inspector to address the inspection portion of the maintenance program.

Standards of Practice

Many commercial building inspectors are not members of professional inspection organizations such as InterNACHI or CCPIA.


To have a professional quality inspection completed on the property it's critical to ensure that the commercial building inspector you choose to hire uses an industry accepted standard of practice as a framework for their inspections. 

We inspect all commercial properties according to the requirements of International Standards of Practice for Inspecting Commercial Properties.
