Commercial inspections should always be performed by a licensed engineer. A home inspection license only allows inspections of 1 to 4 family residential buildings that have been lived in before.
Commercial buildings are different than residential buildings in that they may constructed of different materials, they can have very different electrical systems, and the overall requirements of the building are different than a residential building.
A home inspector should never inspect a new home or a commercial building.
There is no pass/fail on an inspection. Every building has items that will come up. It really depends on the client’s expectations. Most clients have an expectation that in an older building there will be some work required, so it comes down to if the items noted in the inspection report are what was expected, or if it is more than the client expected.
Home Inspections can be performed by Licensed Professional Engineers (PE) or licensed Home Inspectors (HI).

Before you purchase or sell a home or building, you need to have it inspected by a professional to ensure that you know what you are getting into. This is a large investment, perhaps the largest of your life, and there are many interconnected parts and pieces that must all work in harmony to keep you safe, secure and comfortable for many years to come. An issue with just one of the hundreds of elements of your new building could ruin the investment for you and cause large unforeseen expenses and many headaches down the road.
A professional engineer is qualified and legally able to evaluate the structural integrity of any building. A Pacifico Engineering Home Inspection or Building Inspection is a thorough inspection of every element of your building, from roof to foundation, usually lasting two or more hours. At the completion of Pacifico Engineering’s thorough inspection, we provide you with a complete, custom, easy to understand report of our findings. These reports are usually delivered within 1-2 business days. After you receive your report, we are available to discuss any element of the report with you and answer any questions you may have.
During the inspection, you will be given the information on how to control, turn on, turn off, and maintain all the systems in the building. Any items of concern will be brought to your attention. If a system does not work, is not safe, is nearing the end of its useful life, has been installed or maintained incorrectly, or is just not right, you will know.
Furthermore, any full service commercial property inspection provided by Pacifico Engineering meets the National Academy of Building Inspection Engineers Standards of Practice. We will provide you with a complete, custom, easy to understand report of our findings, usually within 24-48 hours. At this time, you are encouraged to ask all the questions you can think of. The engineer’s inspection is the best time to get the information. When the inspection is over, you will likely know more about the building than the owner!
