A property condition assessment is the start of the planning process. For long term planning of capital renewals, deferred maintenance, depreciation reports and reserve fund studies, make Always First Home Inspection your first step in the planning process.
A property condition assessment can provide the client a 360-degree perspective on the asset (property acquisition, lease, or divestment) during the necessary due diligence process.
Industrial building, retail stores, office buildings, apartment buildings, special purpose buildings, and condominium reserve fund studies are considered commercial properties that require special considerations, such as environmental site assessments, elevators, parking garages, fire protection systems, or asphalt paving.
Always First Home Inspection follows strict guidelines of the baseline property condition assessment process as outlined by the American Society of Testing Materials (ASTM) Standard E2018.
Our inspection reports include a comprehensive review of: structures, parking garages, exterior cladding, roofing, mechanical systems, interior finishes, elevators, electrical, plumbing, heating, fire protection, Americans with Disability Act (ADA) accessibility compliance, and swimming pools. Environmental site assessments can also be performed, providing a single point of contact and simplifying the evaluation process.
The Building Assessment report presents our findings in a clear, concise manner outlining the property condition and potential future expenditures. We make specific recommendations, including repair costs and priorities.
