Commercial Building Inspection Services in Shoreline

With Shoreline 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 Few Facts About Shoreline, Washington

Shoreline's natural beauty, abundant resources and location - within reach of Seattle, yet far enough away to be considered semi-rural - were recognized by the first people to live in the area. Those same characteristics continue to describe Shoreline today.

Shoreline began in 1890 with the platting of the neighborhood of Richmond Beach, on Puget Sound, in anticipation of the arrival of the Great Northern Railroad the next year. Over the next two decades, Shoreline was connected to Seattle via the Seattle-Everett Interurban streetcar line (1906) and a newly paved North Trunk Road (now Aurora Avenue N., State Route 99) (1913), helping to increase its population.

The name "Shoreline" first came to be applied to this stretch of unincorporated King County in 1944, when it was given to the school district.
