Commercial Inspection Service Pricing
How Do Commercial Inspectors Determine Prices?
Commercial inspectors have a few different methods they can use for pricing inspections.
♦ Some inspectors go by percentage of the sale price. This format of pricing is a longstanding approach to pricing large commercial inspection projects. The inspector will charge a percentage fee out of the total the building is being sold for, then subcontract other inspectors and experts to help them with the project. This form of pricing, however, can quickly drive up costs for the client and isn’t always a good strategy for pricing all types of commercial buildings.
♦ Some inspectors go by a flat fee based on the building type and the types of components present on the property. This might be the most common type of pricing for commercial building inspections and offers a more fair pricing option to the client.
♦ Finally, some charge by the square foot, which is also a common method for residential home inspectors. The price per square foot can vary depending on the state and are typically congruent with the cost per square footage of the property.

Our administrative team provides the client with an effortless and seamless inspection process and our inspectors are trained and certified, meaning a skillful, well-educated, thoroughly prepared professional inspector is always on-site.
Easy Flat Rate Pricing
We believe pricing should be simple and transparent. Our prices are based on the timeline of the project and the number of inspectors needed to complete the project in that timeline. For example, typically a 5,000 sq ft office building will take approximately 3-4 hours to inspect with an additional 1-2 hours of report writing, the quote for this project would be $900. However, a 300-unit multi-family complex would require multiple inspectors with multiple days of inspections, plus a day of report writing.
- Full-Day Rate (Per Inspector) - $900 (up to 8 hours)
- Half-Day Rate (Per Inspector) - $500 (up to 4 hours)
We are headquartered in Houston, TX. However, we service the surrounding cities. When we travel to a commercial inspection site we charge the Full-Day Rate or the Half-Day Rate depending on the length of travel.
Should an overnight stay be required (multiple-day project) we do calculate hotel fees and meals into the inspection cost.
OPTIONAL INSPECTION SERVICES
These optional services are not included in the Full-Day Rate or the Half-Day Rate but can be added for a flat fee to the inspection project.
