What is a building inspection?
A building inspection is a visual assessment of a property including major mechanical and electrical systems performed by a trained professional in accordance with industry standards. Items typically inspected are: plumbing, electrical, appliances, grading, roofing, siding, windows and doors, HVAC systems, the foundation and much more. A written explanation of the current condition of the property is provided at the conclusion of the inspection.
What is a commercial inspection?
A commercial inspection is a visual assessment of a property to help determine current condition and safety. We work with each client to determine the scope needed. Some of the items typically inspected are: plumbing, electrical, grading, roofing, siding, windows and doors, landscaping, the parking lot, HVAC systems, the foundation and much more. Our inspections are done in general accordance with the internationally-accepted ASTM standards for a baseline Property Condition Assessment. A written report detailing the current condition of the property is provided. The report includes digital pictures of significant findings.
Why do I need an inspection?
A residential or commercial inspection provides you with an unbiased, objective written assessment of the property you are about to sell or purchase, including safety concerns. This puts you in the best position to make a decision regarding your investment. If you’re a seller, a pre-listing inspection gives you a blueprint to maintenance items you might want to repair prior to sale. Showing perspective buyers the inspection, and what items were fixed, gives them added confidence in the quality and care you’ve taken in your home. Clients use an inspection to gather additional information about the property. Understanding the condition of a property can provide peace of mind for both buyers and sellers.
How much does a property inspection cost?
Cost of a building inspection depends on a variety of factors, including: square footage, time required, age of the building, number of heating and air conditioning units and location. Commercial properties sometimes undergo a bidding process depending on the time-frame available and can have multiple options in the bid. For information on the property you are interested in, call or email us.
What kind of experience does my inspector have?
RCI provides a comprehensive training program for all of its building inspectors, combining technical and hands-on field training. We also have a technical support team available to answer questions by phone seven days a week. We follow property inspection industry standards and are constantly working to stay informed of changes with codes and building standards.
How long will the inspection take?
A complete inspection generally takes between 2 and 4 hours onsite. This allows time for assessment of the building’s exterior, interior, mechanical and structural systems. The client is welcome to attend the inspection and RCI inspectors will work to thoroughly explain all findings. In commercial inspections, the client may be in another state, or another country. These may involve just a few hours or two or three days of inspection work depending on the size and scope of the inspection. The best way to determine the duration of an inspection is to call RCI and discuss your specific needs.
When should I schedule the inspection?
If you’re a buyer, you should schedule an inspection as soon as you have a signed contract in place and before closing. If you are selling a property, consider a pre-listing inspection before putting the property on the market. This will give you time to consider making any necessary repairs to boost buyer confidence and help your building rise above the nearby competition.
Do home inspectors ever “fail” a house?
No. A home inspection is an unbiased report based on the condition of a home at the time of the inspection. A home cannot fail because any problem can be, and has been, repaired. It is simply an informational tool for you to use when evaluating a property.
Do home inspectors find every problem?
No. A building inspection is an unbiased report based on the condition of a building at the time of the inspection. A building does not fail because any problem can be, and has been, repaired. It is simply an informational tool for you to use when evaluating a property.
Do building inspectors find every problem?
A building inspection is limited to a visual inspection of the building’s components and systems. Inspectors do not do damage to walls or ceilings, use invasive tools or disturb personal property within reason. Problems that cannot be seen during the extensive walkthrough of the property are not within the scope of a standard home inspection.
Will the inspector recommend someone for repairs if necessary?
Depending on what is found during the inspection, RCI professionals may recommend that you have specific building components evaluated by a specialist, such as a plumber or electrician or HVAC contractor, for possible update or repair. If asked, RCI inspectors may provide the names of three people in a given field for you to contact regarding your property. To remain objective, we never solicit bids on repairs or promote a single contractor. We suggest soliciting referrals from friends or family in the area. If that is not available, the local Better Business Bureau, Home Advisor or Angies List are great places to find reputable contractors.
