Ok, still looking though multiple threads on this forum, Googling for the past couple of days, I see that the ASTM E2018-08 Standard doesn’t seem like a standard for a commercial building inspection just kind of a guide.
My questions is when it comes to Cost to Remedy which in the NACHI COMSOP
7.12 Cost to Remedy
The inspector is not required to provide repair estimates or opinions of costs to remedy. The inspector may offer opinions about such costs as a courtesy, but the offering of these opinions is outside the scope of a commercial inspection.
Most PCA’s will need this included in the report. It seems like a PCA would be for someone who is getting a loan through the bank and the bank wants to see how much risk the customer is getting the loan for.
Does anybody out there who does PCA’s use the NACHI COM SOP for their PCA’s and does not provide a cost to remedy or a 1-10 year cost table, I and starting to further market my commercial inspections and just kind of want to get an idea. I have experience in these types of buildings and not afraid of the cost to remedy, just kinda don’t want to get involve with this as I would be recommending the client to get a couple of quotes from a licensed contractor.
Thanks guys and Merry Christmas
