COMMERCIAL BUILDING INSPECTION SERVICES
Helping You Understand Your Business Is Our Business
An AmeriSpec commercial building inspection will give you the answers you need about your property. A single walk-through is all it takes for our trained commercial property inspectors to survey the building, review appropriate documentation, and conduct interviews, if needed, in order to determine the property’s condition and give you peace of mind you need.
The American Society for Testing Materials (ASTM) has published a standard guide to performing Property Condition Assessments (PCA). Our inspectors have been trained on the ASTM E2018 standard and use it as a baseline to perform PCAs of commercial buildings. We can work with clients to determine the scope of the inspection depending on their requirements and the age, occupancy, and type of building. This includes anything from performing a general visual examination of the property to a comprehensive inspection of all technical components of the building using a team of specialists.
In addition to information and photographs, the AmeriSpec report provides recommendations for remedying major deficiencies, updating ageing major components, and undertaking further detailed investigation, if required, and the timing associated with those recommendations. Depending on the type of inspection chosen, our inspectors can also include in the report approximate costs for items requiring attention in the short, medium, and long term.

RADON TESTING SERVICES
Is This Dangerous Gas Lurking In Your Home?
Radon is a gas that occurs naturally outdoors in harmless amounts. It’s produced from the breakdown of uranium in soil and rocks. It sometimes gets concentrated in homes built on soil with natural uranium deposits. It can enter buildings through cracks in floors or walls, construction joints, or gaps in foundations around pipes, wires or pumps. Radon levels are usually highest in the basement or crawl space. The presence of radon in the home is a serious risk to the health of you and your family.
When radon gas is breathed into the lungs the person is exposed to small amounts of radiation. This radiation may damage the cells in the lining of the lungs and increase a person’s risk of lung cancer. Exposure to the combination of radon gas and cigarette smoke creates a greater risk for lung cancer than either factor alone.
If you think your home is at risk of contamination contact AmeriSpec for a radon test.
Book an appointment to have an AmeriSpec radon test today.
ASBESTOS HOME INSPECTION SERVICE
Have Your Home Tested For Asbestos Today
Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral that was once commonplace in building material, specifically asbestos insulation. Homes built before 1990 often contain asbestos. While Canada has now banned the use of asbestos, many homes and buildings still have traces. When asbestos fibres are released into the air, they are an immediate health risk to you and your family.
Before you begin any renovations, remodelling or demolition, you should talk to the professionals at AmeriSpec about our asbestos inspection service. Reduce the risk of asbestos exposure by booking an appointment with one of our qualified specialists.
The Three Main Types Of Asbestos
Also called white asbestos, this is the most common form. Often contaminated with tremolite, it is extremely hazardous. Chrysotile asbestos is commonly found in asphalt, roofing materials and textiles.
Referred to as brown asbestos, amosite is commonly used in cement, insulation, tiles and roofing.
Tremolite is responsible for many asbestos-related illnesses with colours ranging from white to dark green. This type of asbestos is commonly found in paint, plumbing materials, insulation and roofing.
The Dangers Of DIY Asbestos Removal
Given the dangers involved, asbestos removal is not a do-it-yourself project. In short, not every home has asbestos. However, if you do come across it, do not try to remove the asbestos yourself. Mishandling it could actually make things worse by allowing fibres to get into the air you breathe. This could potentially result in respiratory issues. Professionals should always remove this harmful substance for you. Therefore, you can maintain a healthy atmosphere in your home.
