Professional Home Inspection Service provides commercial inspections for office buildings, motels, restaurants, storefronts, apartment complexes, warehouses, light industrial buildings, etc. in Binghamton, Ithaca, Cooperstown, and Cortland, NY. Our name may be Professional Home Inspection, but we provide professional inspection services across the board. These inspections are tailored to meet the specific needs of our clients and are priced by quote, based on the services required, and the size and complexity of the building(s). Our commercial inspections, unless specifically limited per the request of the client, are performed with the same rigor and detail as our residential inspections. We always aim to provide the highest quality customized inspections with minimal interference, prioritizing our clients and their businesses every step of the way.
Our reports include the following:
- descriptions of all major systems
- an itemized listing of observed deficiencies
- an explanation of the significance of the findings
- photos for improved clarity
- recommendations for correction
At Professional Home Inspection Service, our commercial inspections are tailored not only to the type of building, but to the intended use of the building. The health and safety of each individual client is our top priority, which is why we address not only the building as is, but also the full spectrum of its future needs.
Additionally, we always recommend a Phase 1 inspection to our customers, which is a full assessment of the history of the building, determining its prior use and any potentially harmful exposures or risks that may be involved. This is of the utmost importance to aid our clients in understanding any hidden costs or legal concerns. Phase 1 inspections can be conducted at the same time as a standard inspection to minimize any inconvenience to our clients. In total, commercial inspections can take anywhere from two hours to three days depending on the property type and associated concerns.
Our standard commercial inspection focal points include, but are not limited to the following:
- Roof integrity
- Fire suppression systems
- Mezzanines (weight load)
- Health and safety concerns (restaurants)
- Emergency lighting
- Emergency exits
- Parking lots
- Storm sewers
- Guard rails
- Loading docks
The above commercial inspection points are carried out in addition to standard residential inspection aspects such as windows, doors, etc. However, standards for commercial inspections are more elaborate and also encompass environmental concerns.
This includes testing for:
If we encounter a hazard or health concern, insurance companies require an operation and maintenance plan. Some insurance carriers may also require yearly safety assessments depending on the level of concern associated with your property. Professional Home Inspection Services is covered for commercial inspections under errors and omissions through our insurance provider.
Ultimately, the health and wellness of our clients is always our top priority. Providing clients with top quality assessments, testing, and mediation referrals ensures each valued customer is well cared for and set up for future success.
