Everett Commercial Building Inspector

With Everett commercial property, it’s paramount to learn about the condition of the building, including its roof, siding, copings, penetrations, and overall structure before engaging in any commercial transaction.

Many commercial buildings, for instance, have flat roofs, often with HVAC systems mounted on them. These types of roofs have a shorter life cycle than sloped roofs and are prone to roof leaks.

>> For example, with infrared technology, Pacific Northwest Building Inspections recently discovered close to 30 leaks in a 28,000 sq ft building where the roof looked completely intact based on an exterior examination. The repair for these discovered leaks would have exceeded $300,000, or 30% of the proposed selling price.

Additionally, Pacific Northwest Building Inspections also recommends that a mechanical, electrical, and plumbing contractor inspect HVAC systems, electrical systems, and sewer systems respectfully.

• Typically, HVAC systems are roof mounted, leading to frequent leaks at their attachment points.

• A video analysis of a sewer system can detect damaged pipes and save thousands of dollars (even up to $100,000) in the repairs of a commercial drain line caused by unsuspecting but very corrosive drain cleaners.

• Electrical systems typically are added to over time, sometimes by qualified electrical contractors, but other times, by part-time plant maintenance people. Not only could these repairs be costly, but also the system may not be up to code and there may be serious fire hazards.

Knowledge is power and the proper knowledge of the building you are purchasing could save you hundreds of thousands of dollars in repairs.

A Little Bit About Everett Washington

Permanent settlement by European descendants of what is now Everett started in 1861 when Dennis Brigham built a cabin on a 160-acre (0.6 km2) claim on the shore of Port Gardner Bay. Over the next several years, a handful of settlers moved to the area but it wasn't until 1890 that plans for platting a town were conceived.

In 1890, Henry Hewitt along with Charles L. Colby and Colgate Hoyt founded the Everett Land Company for the purpose of building the city of Everett, named after the son of Charles Colby, on some of the land surrendered by its original inhabitants under the 1855.[5] Everett was officially incorporated on May 4, 1893, the year the Great Northern Railroad came to the town. Everett hoped that James J. Hill would make the town the terminus of his railroad. However Hill continued the railroad along the shore of Puget Sound to Seattle. Railroads and mines played a part in Everett's future. The mining community of Monte Cristo, depended on a railway for supplies. It was hoped that the railroad would cross the mountains and bring in traffic. For a while ore was smelted in Everett, then sawmilling and port activity commenced. A dozen steam riverboats were built in Everett for the Yukon gold rush.

Everett streets are named after each of the three founders. Adjacent streets Colby Avenue and Hoyt Avenue run north and south and are intersected by Hewitt Avenue running east and west just south of the BNSF Railway tracks cutting across Everett. There are several other streets named for their associates such as Bond Street named for Judge Hiram Bond President of the Everett & Monte Cristo Railroad.
