Case Photos

Photos taken from our archives to show some significant deficiencies as well as how we inspect mechanical, electrical and other system components in conducting Commercial Property Inspections & Property Condition Assessments that exceed the Standards set forth in ASTM E-2018.

In reality, deficiencies revealed in examining the inside of HVAC and Electrical equipment would virtually go undetected in conducting a typical Baseline Property Condition Assessment (PCA) according to ASTM E-2018—a truism that could easily end up costing a potential buyer thousands of dollars in purchasing a commercial property based upon a baseline Property Condition Assessment. As they say, 'A Picture Paints a Thousand Words'. Need we say more?
