Commercial Inspections

The Only Inspection Company in the Louisville, Kentucky and Southern Indiana Area Certified for Commercial Inspections According to ASTM 2018-08 Standards!

Not Another Home Inspection!

Most “commercial” inspectors in our area offer a glorified home inspection. Your investment is greater, your report should be also! Certainty Commercial Inspections offers a professional commercial inspection, known as a Property Condition Assessment (PCA).

Property Condition Assessment (PCA)

We produce a customized, narrative report with photographs of needed repairs, replacements, upgrades, considerations, and recommendations. Items will be assessed according to the year the structure was built, with safety upgrade considerations consistent with current building standards.

What’s the Difference? A home inspection informs you of the functionality and safety of the home’s components on the day of inspection. A PCA reviews the history of the property, and summarizes the immediate and future expenses likely for that property, helping you make a better financial decision before purchase or lease.

PCA Scope of Work

Property Condition Assessments are customized per client’s desires and needs. For more information and a FREE QUOTE call our office or fill out the form below, (502) 257-7401.
