Where do you draw the line as to commercial building sizes when performing inspections. I feel comfortable up to about 200 K sq feet performing the inspection by my self electrical, HVAC, plumbing, structural. Yeah I know NACHI recommends sub out most of the inspection but why do it if you can perform it your self makes not a lot of sense to me to pay someone else to do what I can do. Just takes a little longer.
This falls back to being a generalist home inspector and the amount of education you as the inspector has aquired. If you just call yourself a generalist you probally should stay away from even the smaller commercials 40K to 80K.
The phone call I had his morning from a potiental client got me to thinking about what he said. He was inquiring about a commercial inspection and the first thing he wanted to know was not the price but was I able to do the complete inspection without subs. If you know anything about me you know the answer to his question.
