Commercial Building Inspections
Residential, Warehouses, Retail Space & More!
Reliable Home Inspection Service specializes in offering commercial inspections. We have over 30 years experience inspecting retail spaces, apartment complexes, daycare centers, small and large office buildings/complexes.
Homes and commercial buildings are not constructed in the same manner and require a different set of skills to inspect. Many commercial buildings have complex electrical distribution systems, multiple central heating and cooling plants and a variety of construction materials and site conditions that require an experienced consultant to accurately conduct the assessment.
We have performed hundreds of commercial building inspections in Delaware, Pennsylvania and Maryland and can provide you with a team of dedicated inspection specialists to assist you in your due diligence process. We have been providing commercial building inspections for commercial buildings from 1,000 square feet to over 75,000 square feet. Our portfolio of projects includes: churches, dental surgery facilities , retail space, industrial plants, multi-family, manufacturing, medical and managed care facilities, office, retail, hospitality and lodging facilities, restaurants, automotive, parking, and storage facilities.
We offer detailed commercial inspection reports for buyers, sellers and managers of commercial real estate. We offer flexible scheduling and timely delivery of reports to assist you in your due diligence process.
A commercial building inspection provides a very important service in determining defects that may not have been disclosed and that potentially affect the value of your investment. A commercial property inspection will provide the client with valuable insight into the true condition of the prospective property. "Big ticket” items are generally negotiable, but only if you are aware of the age and condition.
Commercial inspections along with large building radon testing, the team at Reliable has you covered in your next acquisition.

Properties of all descriptions are evaluated, including:
- Large multi-unit residential
Commercial Inspections break into Several Categories:
1 to 4 unit residential buildings these are typically inspected like a home every unit, every heater.
Mixed storefronts with residential will be inspected as above to exclude process equipment and associated systems. Sprinklers, elevators and very large roof systems may require outside specialists as part of the team approach to large building inspections. ADA compliance is outside of the scope of our inspection. Ada compliance is not part of our inspections on any size building. We feel special attention should be paid to big ticket items such as roof, parking lot, complex heating and cooling equipment. We help you to understand how to organize your maintenance budget to make its best affect.
Large Commercial and Industrial Sites - These buildings will typically fall under the team approach with elevators, sprinklers, roofing and other large systems to be evaluated by outside specialists as part of the team approach.
We typically prefer to see the whole building but in very large residential, or office settings limiting the scope of the inspection is the prerogative of the purchaser. We can put multiple inspectors in a building at a time allowing for faster service and the ability to work with tenant schedule. providing fast accurate information will allow the best use of a short due diligence period.
