Commercial Property Inspection

The Difference Between Commercial and Home Inspections

Commercial buildings come in many different sizes, styles, and usage configurations. Some buildings are multi-residential where the building is commercial and the units are residential. Others are strictly commercial or industrial. Knowing these differences and how the various codes impact the property inspection process is the difference between a through property inspection that is accurate and a report that is filled with errors. At Aspire Property Inspection, we know when and where to use applicable IRC and IBC codes, saving you time and eliminating potential for irrelevant information from ending up in your inspection report.

A typical commercial inspection will include the following:

  • Foundation, Grading, and Sump Systems

  • Roof and drainage systems

  • Exterior brick, stucco, or siding

  • Electrical service line entrance
