Commercial Building Inspection & Property Inspection

Choosing a location for your business is a major investment. You’ve researched the neighbourhood and made sure there’s enough square footage to meet your needs. Before you sign papers, it’s time to schedule your commercial building inspection to ensure there are no hidden problems.

A commercial building inspection is just as important as a home inspection. Your business property has plumbing, wiring and a roof, same as a house—so the same issues can pop up.

An inspection can alert you to liabilities and costs, including:

  • Leaking or damaged roofs
  • Cracks in the foundation of the building
  • Plumbing problems like damaged pipes or leaks
  • Faulty wiring or too little power for the appliances you need

What does a commercial building inspection look for?

A commercial building inspector knows where to look for common and hard-to-spot problems. We provide a thorough evaluation to help you avoid a bad investment or do the necessary maintenance to keep your new property in good shape.

At Holley Home Inspections, our commercial inspections will check the:

  • Roof
  • Foundation
  • Plumbing
  • Electrical
  • Heating and cooling system (HVAC)
  • Windows
  • Water drainage and seepage

At the end of the inspection, we provide you with a full building condition report. Your report provides all the information you need to negotiate terms and care for your new property.

Questions about your report? We’re happy to explain any issues or provide advice on how you can resolve issues. We can also structure our report to meet ASTM E2018 professional standards.

Certified roof inspections for commercial properties

Mike Holley roof inspectionMost commercial buildings have a flat roof, which carries a higher risk of leaks than the peaked roof of a house. That’s why it’s particularly important to know the condition of the roof before your purchase or lease.

We provide infrared roof inspections, using thermal cameras to get a complete view. From our roof evaluation, you’ll know whether the roof needs a simple repair or a full replacement. Once you’re informed, you can save money by negotiating any extra costs into your agreement. Otherwise, you risk the unexpected cost of roof repairs or replacement down the line.

Current owners can also benefit from a non-destructive roof inspection. If you notice problems with your roof, you can save money by calling an unbiased third party before a roofer. We’ll let you know the condition of your roof and whether it needs a minor fix or larger work. You may even be able to extend the lifetime of your roof by making a few timely repairs now.

Support for commercial realtors and their clients

A full report on the condition of the property is a powerful tool for realtors. It gives you information you need to keep your clients informed and negotiate the best deal.

We go out of our way to provide support for realtors by offering:

  • A full range of inspections, including pre-purchase, pre-listing and pre-delivery inspections
  • Quick response times to avoid delays
  • Fast turn-around on reports, often same-day
  • Expert advice and guidance on any questions you have about our report and any issues that come up

At Holley Home Inspections, we focus on finding solutions to problems as they arise.

Most issues that show up on our report aren’t deal-breakers—they’re simply a normal part of maintaining a building. We can advise you and your client on the most cost-effective way to care for the new property.
