Whether you’re a buyer, property manager, or investor, you know the importance of hiring trusted professionals when dealing with your Charlotte, North Carolina, commercial property. That’s especially true for commercial building inspectors. So, how do you know which inspector to hire? Americas Choice Commercial Building Inspections, LLC recommends these three questions to ask when hiring a commercial building inspector.
1. What Are Your Qualifications?
Simply put, an inspector assesses the condition of the property and gives a detailed report of their findings. That’s why it’s important for property inspectors to have training. We have training from the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) standards for PCAs, which are necessary to help us do the job right. These standards are recognized by most lending institutions across the United States.
2. What Does Your Inspection Include?
Make sure the inspection report will include all the information you need. Before the inspection even begins, when we receive information about the property, we prepare a proposal of what the inspection will include, so you can know ahead of time what to expect. A basic inspection report has an analysis of the structure, exterior, roof, plumbing, HVAC, electrical, interiors, vertical lift system, and life/safety/fire protection equipment. Also, in all the reports we include an approximate cost for any major component that could need to be replaced or repaired within two years (as long as the cost will be more than $3,000).
3. How Do You Report Your Findings?
It’s helpful to know what to expect when the report is complete. When we have completed our inspection, we deliver to you a professional report detailing the current condition of the building. We make sure it is consistent with the agreed-upon proposal the client sees ahead of time. Whether you are a property manager, buyer, potential lessee, or investor, our reports are thorough and based on industry standards.
