Lynnwood 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 Lynnwood 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.

Infrared Thermographic Inspections

Pacific Northwest Building Inspections considers an infrared camera to be one of the most important tools in a Lynnwood 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.

A Little Bit About Lynnwood, Washington

Lynnwood was officially incorporated on April 20, 1959, from a larger unincorporated area called Alderwood Manor. The area was originally platted, developed, and sold as 1-acre (4,000 m2) lots designed for raising chickens. Even today you can see many of the original 80 year old homes that were the chicken ranches,[3] and old bulidings. Former Masonic Temple bulit in 1919 still stands today near 36th Ave W and 196th St Sw in Lynnwood.

The name "Lynnwood" comes from a developer from Seattle who planned to build something at Highway 99 and Alderwood Road (now 196th ST SW). He named the building "Lynn" for his wife and "wood" for Alderwood. Many other stores around took the name Lynnwood and were known as the Lynnwood Business District. Some buildings still stand such as Lynnwood Center (home to Safeway) and the first to say "Lynnwood", The Lynnwood Lumber Company (now a pawn shop).

The initial center of the incorporated city was the intersection of State Route 99 (Highway 99) and State Route 524 (196th Street SW). When I-5 was built, the exit onto 44th Avenue West became the main Lynnwood exit. At that time, the city zoned the area East of 48th W, south of 194th SW, and west of the new freeway for commercial development, and the current city center area was born, with the construction of the Fred Meyer store, a new hotel called the Landmark (now La Quinta Inns & Suites) on 200th and 44th, and other commercial developments.

With the planned construction of I-405 bringing more people by the city, developers built the Alderwood Mall, effectively moving the main commercial area even farther east.

Today, Alderwood Mall continues to expand. New additions to it in 2005 included a Borders book and music store, a Pottery Barn, and a large Loews theatre.

The Lynnwood Convention Center opened in 2005 at 196th St. SW and 36th Ave. W. The convention center and Alderwood Mall create many tourists and business in Lynnwood.
