Light Commercial Building Inspections

abc003.gif       ABC Home Inspection, LLC also performs light commercial building inspections upon request. Kevin McMahon started his inspection career inspecting commercial building superstructures in 1984. Along with his 14+ years of home inspection has led him to be asked to perform commercial building inspections throughout Central Wisconsin. 
     The reports prepared for the client are detailed complete with digital photo's and tailored to commercial inspections including parking and ADA compliance where applicable.
      We prefer to limit the inspection to smaller commercial structures. Single story wood frame or masonry buildings from retail strip centers, clinic buildings, bars & tavern, condo's and apartment buildings.
       If the commercial building poses any aspect which will require the expertise of a HVAC contractor or Electrician, we may hire a subcontractor to perform the inspections on the electrical or HVAC systems Costs for these will be borne by the client.
  • Major defects. An example of this would be a structural failure.
  • Things that lead to major defects. A small roof-flashing leak, for example.
  • Things that may hinder your ability to finance, legally occupy, or insure the building.
  • ** Note: Fire alarm or fire suppression system inspections are not a part of the report.
    Safety hazards, such as an exposed, live buss bar at the electric panel.

  • ADA compliance concerns
  • Exiting requirements
  • HVAC, Electrical, Windows & doors, Plumbing systems, fixtures, Insulation & ventilation. 

    Most sellers are honest and are often surprised to learn of defects uncovered during an inspection. Realize that sellers are under no obligation to repair everything mentioned in the report. No building is perfect. Keep things in perspective. Don't kill your deal over things that don't matter. It is inappropriate to demand that a seller address deferred maintenance, conditions already listed on the seller's disclosure, or nit-picky items
