Lynnwood Commercial Building Inspections

With Lynnwood 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 in Lynnwood 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 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.
