Commercial Property Inspectors
Waypoint Property Inspection is a certified commercial property and building inspection company in Florida. We are certified and trained through the Certified Commercial Property Inspectors Association (CCPIA). Commercial inspections in Florida require experienced commercial inspectors with different skill sets. Commercial buildings can be office towers, retail spaces, or restaurants with different electrical, HVAC, plumbing, and roofing equipment that most home inspectors cannot inspect independently. At Waypoint, we can take on any job, large or small.

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 Tampa Bay, 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.
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.
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.
- enhance the information obtained during the walk-through survey; and
- provide supporting documentation for the inspection report.
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.
- 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.
Because every commercial inspection project is different, we encourage all potential clients to call for quotes.
