Commercial Inspections

Every buyer or seller of commercial property needs to know the condition of the property they own or want to buy. If you’re not sure of the overall state of any commercial property in Texas, we urge you to enlist our professional commercial inspection services before you make any decision.

Ariel Inspections has helped hundreds of commercial clients with the structural soundness, electrical safety, and environmental safety of their properties. We have more than 10 years’ experience in commercial building inspections so you can trust us to do a professional job. We’ve conducted several inspections throughout Texas and the Dallas/Fort Worth area performing thorough and cost-effective inspections while adhering to best practices and industry regulations during inspections.

Ariel Inspections performs comprehensive commercial inspections. We inspect every major system from the roof, plumbing systems, electrical systems, structure components, insulation & ventilation, HVAC systems and even air quality. In short, we make a thorough evaluation of commercial property with the aim of limiting the costs and enhancing the safety and overall value as well. We focus on the condition of the property and look for structural or safety issues that may affect operations within the building you want to buy or sell. You can count on our commercial inspector to provide you the kind of knowledge that will help you maximize your return on property investments.

All commercial inspections are done by experienced and licensed inspectors. Once we conduct our investigations, we will submit a detailed inspection report which includes comprehensive digital images, include aerial photography and infrared thermal detection, and professional recommendations. Our desire is to help businesses and building owners to comply with building codes and to uphold the highest standards of structural integrity and safety of building systems. After the evaluation, you will be in an advantageous position to make a prudent decision on whether to buy or sell a property.

Our inspectors will also look out for inadequate engineering designs, dilapidated or aged equipment, faulty systems, poor workmanship, unusual wear, environmental hazards and noncompliance with building regulations. Once we complete the inspection, we will write and submit a summary report of the findings in detail plus any concerns and estimated costs of undertaking repairs and replacements. Our goal is to ensure that every commercial client is aware of the risks and level of exposure before they invest in or sell commercial property

Aerial Photography

Drones are valuable tools to use on roofs that are unreachable or too steeply pitched. Our aerial photography can be used for a wide array of applications. We use this technology to locate any structural damage to roofs where a typical person couldn’t get to. It also provides a better vantage point to pinpoint any drainage issues surrounding the property.

Infrared Thermal Imaging

We see what you don’t see

Home Inspections have been, traditionally, visual inspections. This has been taken to mean visual to the human eye and readily seen. But, just as home construction has become more technical, so has the practice of professional Home Inspection. Electrical Circuit Analyzers, gas and CO meters and UV flashlights are now commonly used for home inspections. The newest such tool is the Thermal or IR imaging camera.

Infrared detects extremely small but crucial differences in temperature from one area of a house to another. These temperature variations show up on the camera’s view screen as “cold” or “hot” spots, which reveal hidden problems that often cannot be detected in the course of a traditional visual inspection. These problems may include:

Why Perform Infrared Inspections?

Combined with traditional commercial inspection techniques, the infrared inspection method reveals substantially more of the property than can be perceived by the naked eye and conventional inspection tools.

  • Faulty wiring, breakers and fuses
  • Hidden moisture intrusion
  • The moisture sources of mold
  • Pipe and duct work leaks
  • Roof and ceiling leaks
  • Foundation cracks
  • Heat/energy loss
  • Structural concerns
  • Missing insulation
  • Ventilation problems
  • Moisture associated with termite nests
  • Rats, mice and other pests

Inspection Report:

To help you better understand how we present our findings, please review a sample of an actual home inspection report. Keep in mind that no home is going to be 100% perfect. On average, an inspector will generally come across something that will either immediately need your attention or something that either the buyer or seller needs to be aware of. We’ll provide you with a thorough report with easy to follow recommendations so that you can resolve any issues quickly and easily. Click here for Inspection report example-commercial
