Additional and Optional Inspection Services:

  • Phase 1 Environmental Site Assessment (ESA)
    Comprehensive environmental assessments, including site history, potential contaminant sources, and remediation recommendations. These inspections involve extensive research, site visits, and testing to identify potential environmental risks. Reports may include information on historical site use, potential contaminants, and recommendations for further investigations or remediation.
  • Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) assessments
    Ensures compliance with accessibility standards, evaluating features like ramps, door widths, and signage to enhance inclusivity. The process involves a site assessment, compliance review, documentation of findings, recommendations for modifications, and follow-up to verify ADA compliance.
  • Cost-To-Cure AKA Cost-To-Fix – COMING SOON!
    Cost-To-Cure refers to the estimated cost required to repair or rectify a defect, deficiency, or problem in a property to bring it up to standard or to restore it to its intended condition. Our Cost-To-Cure reports provide these estimated repair/remedy costs to the client in an easy to read and understand format.  As a property owner, lessor, lessee, or buyer, understanding the property value based on actual condition and the costs that will be necessary to replace or repair the defective and/or aging components or systems of the property is critical.
  • Capital Needs Assessment (CNA) – COMING SOON!
    A Capital Needs Assessment (CNA) (also known as a Physical Needs Assessment PNA) is a comprehensive evaluation of the capital expenditures required to maintain, repair, or upgrade a property over a specific period, typically the next five to twenty years. It is a crucial tool used by property owners, investors, and managers to plan for future capital expenditures, ensure the property remains in good condition, and preserve its value.
  • Capital Reserve Study – COMING SOON!
    (Also referred to as a Reserve Analysis or Reserve Table) A Capital Reserve Study is a multiple-year plan that forecasts a property’s expected expenses in repairs, replacements, and enhancements by considering the current condition and remaining useful life based on the findings from a Property Condition Assessment. A five-, ten-, or fifteen-year analysis is most common, especially for small businesses. Our Capital Reserve Study offers a visionary evaluation, preparing you for significant capital outlays over time. By examining the lifespan of building components and forecasting future repair or replacement costs, we aid in crafting a tailored reserve fund strategy. This proactive measure helps property owners and managers avoid financial surprises, preserving the property’s long-term health and value.

    In addition to the Commercial Kitchen Inspection, we will inspect and test each piece of equipment for damage and functionality.  The inspector will report on any defects or maintenance needs.
  • Electrical Equipment Thermography: This inspection is performed by a certified electrical thermographer. In 2023, the National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) updated their requirements to have every electrical panel on commercial properties inspected once every 12-month period from “recommended” to “required.” This services includes thermal imaging of every panel we will have access to on the property as well as a detailed report on the capacity, condition, and data information on each panel.
  • Building Efficiency Thermography: This inspection is performed by a certified thermographer who is trained to use infrared technology to scan the building envelope for any efficiency issues. Moisture intrusion issues may also be found during the inspection.
  • Advanced HVAC Inspection
    In addition to our standard HVAC inspection, we will open enclosed HVAC units such as RTU’s and chillers to inspect for defects such as plumbing leaks, electrical concerns, lack of maintenance, damage, proper drainage, and anything else worth noting
  • Fire Suppression System Inspection

  • Sewer Camera Inspections – COMING SOON!

Inspection professionals use specialized cameras to inspect sewer lines and identify issues. This helps in early detection and preventive maintenance. This service can save property owners and managers thousands in repair costs.
  • Pool and Spa Inspections
    Safety is the number one goal when inspecting a pool or spa; looking at safety barriers and sensors, stairs, ladders, diving platforms, electrical components and receptacles are just a few of the critical components to ensure safety. By following a comprehensive inspection checklist, recommended by the National Swimming Pool Foundation (NSPF), you can be rest assured your investment will be thoroughly inspected and a detailed digital report will be provided.
  • Retention Pond Inspections
    A retention pond, sometimes called a wet pond, wet detention basin, or storm-water management pond (SWMP), is an artificial pond with vegetation around the perimeter and a permanent pool of water in its design. It is used to manage storm-water runoff, for protection against flooding, for erosion control, and to serve as an artificial wetland and improve the water quality in adjacent bodies of water.
  • Asbestos Inspections
    Asbestos has historically been used in various applications for its durability and fire resistance. It can be found in a large number of building materials used both indoors and outdoors.  Three of the major health effects associated with asbestos exposure are lung cancer, mesothelioma, and asbestosis.  We offer direct sampling of potential asbestos to be tested by certified labs.
  • Lead-based paint Inspections
    Lead can be toxic to humans and animals, causing a range of severe to minor health effects.  Lead can affect almost every organ and system in your body. Children six years old and younger are most susceptible to the effects of lead.  We are able to test for the presence of lean in water and physical samples from building materials.
  • Indoor Air Quality Assessments
    Air Quality Inspection focuses on assessing indoor air quality, conducting initial assessments, air sampling for pollutants, laboratory analysis, reporting findings, suggesting mitigation strategies, and conducting follow-up testing.
  • Radon Inspections
    Radon is a radioactive gas that has been found in buildings all over the United States. Any building has the potential to contain radon. We measure your property’s radon levels and provide you with an easy-to-read report offering recommendations and peace of mind.
  • Mold Inspections
    The EPA  states that “Molds are part of the natural environment, and can be found everywhere, indoors and outdoors. Mold is not usually a problem, unless it begins growing indoors.  Mold can negatively impact your health.  We offer direct sampling and air sampling to confirm or refute the presence of any “apparent molds”
