Our commercial assessments are offered in two forms: the Property Condition Assessment (PCA), which conforms to ASTM Standard E 2018-08; and, the Standard Commercial Assessment, which is very similar to the PCA but excludes interviews, document review and cost estimates.

The written report of our findings is logical, easy to read and conveniently separates informational content, defects and potential safety issues. After staff review, the final written report of our findings is delivered our next business day per your requested method, but usually via e-mail. We also include a helpful summary of any deficiencies identified in the inspection. The report is available from our Web site for viewing, downloading or printing for 90 days.
