About Commercial Property Inspections in St. Pete, FL

Waypoint Property Inspection is a certified commercial property and building inspection company in St. Pete, FL. We are certified through the CCPIA. Commercial inspections in St. Petersburg, FL require experienced commercial inspectors with different skillsets. Commercial buildings can be office towers, retail spaces, or restaurants that have different electrical, HVAC, plumbing, and roofing equipment that most home inspectors cannot inspect on their own. At Waypoint, we can take on any job, large or small.

We are affiliated with these industry leading organizations:

What Is A Commercial Property Inspection?

“A commercial property inspection is defined as the process of an inspector collecting information through visual observation during a walk-through survey of the subject property, conducting research about the property, and then generating a meaningful report about the condition of the property based on the observations made and research conducted by the inspector. A commercial inspection requires the inspector to make observations, conduct research, and report findings.” – From the CCPIA

Why Should You Have A Commercial Property Inspection?

Commercial buildings are costly to maintain and repairs and the owner’s liability extends to employees and customers. Therefore, a commercial property inspector, like Waypoint in St. Pete, FL, can help reduce their risk with a commercial property inspection. It may also help the owner make a good business investment by more thoroughly understanding the property.

What To Expect

The following is from the CCPIA.

Our commercial inspections comply with the International Standards of Practice for Inspecting Commercial Properties (ComSOP) – the industry-accepted commercial inspection guidelines, and a proven process and system.

Walk-Through Inspection

This is the portion of the service where the inspector conducts a thorough on-site visual examination of the property’s physical condition. The assessment is focused on the building’s critical systems and components, including the following:

  • heating and ventilation systems;
  • cooling systems;
  • plumbing systems;
  • mechanical and electrical systems;
  • roof surface, drainage, and penetrations;
  • exterior elements and fixtures;
  • general topography of the building site;
  • parking areas and sidewalks (for barriers to accessibility);
  • wood decks and balconies;
  • basement, foundation, and crawlspace;
  • doors, windows, and interior;
  • life safety components;
  • kitchen (including storage);
  • and other areas that are specific to the subject property.

Depending on the scope and needs of the project, we may hire a team of specialists who provide expertise in relevant areas. These may include:

  • a plumber;
  • an electrician;
  • an HVAC contractor;
  • a Professional Engineer;
  • a commercial kitchen expert; and/or
  • an Infrared-Certified® thermal imaging inspector.

 

Document Procurement and Review
For this portion of the service, we request and review documents and records about the property. Some relevant documents may include lease agreements, Certificates of Occupancy, building and fire code violations, service contracts, repair invoices, and maintenance records. We will also interview person(s) with the most knowledge about the condition of the building. Many potential deficiencies can be identified about a building this way, as well as in reviewing its history. This service will:
  • enhance the information obtained during the walk-through survey; and
  • provide supporting documentation for the inspection report.

 

Inspection Report
The final product of a commercial property inspection is the written report. It will contain concise details from the walk-through survey, documents procured, the results of interviews conducted, and any other third-party reports ordered as part of the commercial property inspection.
The inspection report will basically include a detailed summary of our findings. This will provide the client with an inventory of the building’s major systems and components, and an evaluation of their functional and physical condition. These findings will highlight the property’s strengths and potential deficiencies, along with deferred maintenance issues. The inspection report can be used to understand and address the issues that will impact the building from a physical standpoint and financial perspective, as well as the health and safety of the building’s occupants.
Every inspection and subsequent report will be different based on the type of property and its use, the Scope of Work for the inspection, and even the inspector, so previous inspection reports should not be relied upon as an accurate record of its current condition.
Items we report may identify deficiencies related to:
  • poor installation and workmanship;
  • inadequate design for the intended use;
  • deferred maintenance;
  • environmental damage or risks; and/or
  • systems near the end of their service life.
NOTE: If the client prefers a less formal way of gaining an understanding of the condition of a property, we can perform a walk-through survey and orally communicate his or her observations. However, our contract with the client should specifically state the nature of the walk-through survey, including that no written report will be generated as a result.

Because every commercial inspection project is different, we encourage all potential clients to call for quotes.

Waypoint Property Inspectors never disappoint! I want my clients to have inspectors that give them the good, bad and ugly when making such a large investment when buying a home. I don’t like when inspection companies sugar coat inspections. Waypoint definitely looks out for their buyer clients.

We bought an older home and had concerns but from the moment we contacted them communication was great they sent two inspectors out plus a sub inspector for the termite inspection. We had our detailed reports by the end of the day with clear notation on the level of concern of the issue with good pictures showing the exact problem. I would use them again on all further house purchases.

I appreciate your services, people, and dedication to quality. James and Paul were great. James is very personable and phenomenal at sharing what he's finding while he's going through the house and will take the time to ensure we understand. When I got the report, the results were as expected. It brought comfort over my purchase decision. I'm glad Lori shared with me all the report options to ensure I had what I needed. Thank you for everything!

I am a first time home buyer and a new construction home buyer at that. I had some concerns regarding the quality of work. However, waypoint and their inspector Travis gave me the reassurance I needed to feel good about the purchase. Their inspector Travis was very detailed, professional and knowledgeable. Thank you very much Waypoint. I will be also getting my 11 month warranty inspection with them as well.

Waypoint was very easy to work with! I called them on Sunday and they were able to inspect on Tuesday. They did a home inspection, 4 pt. Inspection and a termite inspection. They sent the report and called that night to go over the results and followed up the next day to make sure we didn’t have any questions. I would definitely recommend working with them!

I had a great experience with Waypoint Property Inspection. I needed to book a house inspection quickly because I was just under contract on a property; Waypoint was the fastest, most eligible company to book in this current real estate market. The inspector was thorough, friendly, and communicated clearly. As an independent woman, I felt safe and my questions were tended to fairly and directly. The reporting technology is top-notched as they entered information on a tablet device as they worked, so they can give you an exhaustive updated at the end of their appointment of inspecting the property. Then you get a formal report sent to you the same day through email. This was a phenomenal process in this current hot real estate market- efficient and accurate. I highly recommend them and I would use them again for future inspections.

Had my first 4 Point Inspection and Wind Mit inspection today by Waypoint. Their inspector Norm was so helpful and through in his inspection. I learned alot about my property that I didn't know and he gave me a lot of good tips for getting ready to be reinspected at a later date. He was very personable and responsive. I would recommend Waypoint to anyone that needs an inspection for homeowner's insurance or anything else.

I enlisted the services of Waypoint Property Inspection, LLC to inspect the framework and construction walk through prior to closing. Wilmer was exceptionally helpful, professional, and informative.
