Baseline Commercial Building Inspections

A Property Condition Assessment (according to standards set forth by the American Society for Testing and Materials) relies on a walk-through survey, document review and interviews—all performed by a professional AmeriSpec commercial property inspector— to determine the property’s condition. Results of the PCA are reported in a Property Condition Report.
