Our services conform to the ASTM standard E2018-01 protocol for Property Condition Assessments. Best Inspection, Inc. is an inspection company that has specialized in building inspections since 2003. We are geared to move quickly and focus all our efforts on providing you with the necessary information for a commercial property investor. Our reports are designed for quick decision making, with an easy-to-follow summary of recommendations, costs and priorities. We do not offer contracting or project management services; therefore, you know our opinions are unbiased. Our reports are recognized by lending institutions as an important step in the financing process.
The report will be a professional opinion, based on the accessible, visible components and systems of the building. We evaluate the current physical condition; we do not perform a design analysis. We visually review the performance, looking for evidence of distress
The report will identify deficiencies based on a sampling inspection technique. For example; in a 100-foot x 20-foot brick wall, there are roughly 13,500 bricks and 12,000 feet of mortar joints. A brick-by-brick examination and report would require several hours for this building component alone. As a practical alternative, we use our professional judgment and experience to inspect areas and components most likely to show problems. This means that in some cases we will not find localized problems that were detectable.
The fieldwork and report writing will be carried out by Jim Foss as a team leader and he will be assisted by Professional Engineers who specialize in the area of building inspections on an as needed basis.
