Cornerstone Building Inspections


Why an Inspection?

why an inspectorBuying property isn’t like buying most anything else. 

For one thing, it doesn’t come with a guaranteed satisfaction or money back offer. This is why you should have an inspection completed by a licensed government inspector. A professional inspector can identify areas of concern or potential problems. Prospective commercial property ownership and lessees seldom visit the site property during the inspection process. They rely strictly on the findings within the commercial report and supporting photographic evidence as set to ASTM standards. 

By comparison, your residential inspection report is set to HIABC's standards.  Therefore, your residential inspection report will allow you to make the following informed decisions.

  1. A detailed inspection report can highlight positive aspects of a design and construction, and the potential for remodeling or additions to enhance the value.
  2. Accompanying our inspector on the building inspection provides you with invaluable education and an introduction to the property.
  3. You gain key knowledge about:
    • structural integrity of the property
    • quality of materials and construction used
    • property life expectancy
  4. As a result of an inspection you will:
    • get a comprehensive and thorough written inspection report
    • be able to ask any questions you may have and get advice regarding the property
    • know where health and safety hazards exist around the home
    • become aware of major defects with the property prior to purchase
    • become familiar with the construction and mechanical systems of the home
    • know what repairs need immediate attention and should be budgeted for
    • learn how to avoid costly repairs by doing maintenance around the property
    • receive an expert’s advice about the possibility and feasibility of additions and renovations
