Edmonds Commercial Inspections

Commercial property typically involves a significant investment. Every building, whether an apartment building, storage facility, or grocery store, needs to be completely inspected prior to purchase in order to properly protect that investment.

A key part of Edmonds commercial inspections is infrared thermography. An infrared inspection of electrical panels and machinery helps identify areas that consume higher amounts of energy than necessary. Infrared thermography can also identity potential water leaks in the overall structure of the building.

Request infrared thermography with your inspection before you close the sale to find any issues that may cost hundreds of thousands to repair later.

Edmonds Infrared Thermographic Inspection

Pacific Northwest Building Inspections considers an infrared camera to be one of the most important tools in an Edmonds home inspector’s tool bag. A scientific process that essentially measures thermal or infrared energy, infrared thermography can detect insulation, air leakage, water, electrical, heating, and cooling problems.

Without any disruptive – or destructive – exploration, Pacific Northwest Building Inspections can discover water leaks around windows, doors, interior and exterior walls, roofs, and water pipes. Wall insulation and the heating and cooling efficiency of windows and doors can also be assessed by using an infrared camera.

Some Tidbits About Edmonds, Washington

Edmonds is the oldest incorporated city in Snohomish County. Logger George Brackett founded Edmonds in 1890, naming the city either for Vermont Sen. George Franklin Edmunds or in association with the nearby Point Edmund, named by Charles Wilkes in 1841 and later changed to Point Edwards. Brackett came to the future site of Edmonds while paddling a canoe north of Seattle, searching for timber. When a gust of wind hit his canoe, Brackett beached in a location later called "Brackett's Landing".

The town was named Edmonds in 1884, but was not incorporated until 1890 as an official “village fourth class” of Snohomish County. In that same year, Brackett sold 455 acres (1.84 km2) to the Minneapolis Realty and Investment Company. The town was plotted and a wharf was added along the waterfront. Modest houses and commercial structures sprouted up with a row of shingle mills dominating the cityscape.

In 1891, the Great Northern Railroad came through and early settlers and investors grew hopeful that Edmonds would prosper. Unfortunately, the Panic of 1893 created business setbacks and the town owners foreclosed. Brackett reclaimed his town and along with other early settlers continued to develop its infrastructure. By 1900 there was regular passenger ferry service available by the steam-powered “mosquito fleet” of private ferryboats from Edmonds to Seattle.

Edmonds suffered major fires in 1909 and 1928, and many buildings were lost. The first car arrived in Edmonds in 1911. As more roads were established, Edmonds experienced steady growth along with commercial and residential development.
