Commercial inspectors near you in the SF bay area
Commercial inspections are designed to help you assess the risks of
purchasing a property or entering into a long-term lease on a commercial
property. We inspect the entire building or only the parts you direct
us to inspect and provide detailed reporting.
Commercial Inspections will take a look at the entire building and we will work hard to give you a balanced point of view about the property and the associated risks with any issues that we may find. Our team will walk you through the property and show you areas of interest or concern and answer any questions you may have.
Commercial inspections are not meant to be technically exhaustive in relation to the specific use of the building. Additionally, specialized equipment such as equipment for manufacturing, restaurants, or other specific usages is not part of the scope of these inspections. We will examine the building’s envelope and major systems, providing you with a clearer idea of the general condition of the building.

What are Commercial Inspections?
Commercial inspections are a non-invasive, visual assessment of the condition of a commercial property. Commercial inspections or Due Diligence inspections are a normal part of acquiring a commercial property or entering into a long-term commercial lease. These inspections can help provide you with a sense of current maintenance or repair needs to the building as well as potential repairs that may be needed in the future. This is a useful way of clarifying your initial cost of acquisition and ongoing costs of ownership or management. A commercial inspection is conducted by a professional inspector who is trained and certified to perform commercial property inspections.
At Golden Gate Home Inspections, all of our commercial property inspectors are certified, by either InterNACHI, ASHI, or CREIA. They are trained to inspect each system of a home and are specialists in inspecting the wide variety and ages of properties in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Foundation Cracking: Minor
Foundation cracking is normal in most homes. Sometimes the cracking is due to concrete shrinkage but sometimes it’s due to settling of the home or the lot itself. The cracks in this foundation would be considered minor and something to monitor over time. If this crack widens, then we would recommend contacting a structural engineer to evaluate the cause and propose suggestions for repair. If you’re concerned about the condition of your foundation, contact us to schedule a foundation inspection.
Rusted Scuppers can Lead to Moisture Intrusion
Rusted scuppers are a sign that the roof is in need of service. Rusted scuppers can allow moisture to go where it’s not intended. We recommend that all of the roof’s drainage elements be changed when you get a new roof.
