Commercial Inspections


All the inspections listed for a home are also available for Commercial properties. A contract and pricing will be submitted once the square footage, number of floors, existing and proposed use of the property are known. Keep in mind the typical price structure of a home inspection will need to be adjusted due to the size of the building and its equipment.
