Crystal Lake Commercial Building Inspection

If you are thinking of buying or selling commercial property in Crystal Lake, a building inspection from qualified Hearth and Home Inspections inspectors will save you from costly surprises during real estate negotiations. We will ensure that your property is in compliance with Crystal Lake fire and regulatory codes.


Hearth and Home Inspections commercial building inspections include a professional evaluation of:

Foundations and basements

Any issue with a foundation often has consequences for the rest of the structure. A shift in the foundation will cause a loss of integrity which will become an expensive repair. Moisture issues are also of specific importance when inspecting a basement as excess moisture.

Interior structure

Load bearing walls must be in prime condition but there is more than just that. Insulation and the buildings ability to stop heat transfer is immensely important to the overall functionality of the property. We verify the following:

  • Walls
  • Ceilings
  • Windows
  • Doors, stairways
  • Railings

Exterior components

Whatever material used on the exterior of the building is its main form of protection against the elements. If the exterior is compromised, then further inspection is required to find out just how extensive the damage is.

Roof structures and overhangs

If a roof is not properly protecting its occupants or the structure, it can lead to unforeseen water damage and result in costly repairs.

Electrical distribution systems

Is everything up to code? Are the electrical needs of the occupants met? Is it energy efficient?

Heating and cooling systems

HVAC systems are crucial to the welfare of a building’s occupants. However, larger buildings have extensive ductwork and if there is a problem that means that certain areas are not getting the appropriate amount of efficient climate control.

Plumbing

Is your home experiencing leaks, constantly running toilets or clogged drains? How old are the pipes? There are many plumbing issues that you need to know about before you buy.
