40 Year Recertification Inspection
Our 3 Simple Steps To Recertification
What is a 40 year recertification inspection?
When a building turns 40 years old, a mandatory inspection is required to ensure that the structure still meets safety standards and current building codes, and to identify areas that are in need of updating in order to bring the structure up to par. Every ten (10) years after that, you’ll have to get another re-inspection done for the same purpose, and to keep an eye on structures as they age and become more likely to show signs of disrepair.

Do I have to get a 40-year building inspection?
It may seem like too much of a hassle, or something that you could safely skip out on altogether. But it’s actually an absolute necessity, not only to remain compliant with current building codes and standards, but to also to guarantee the safety of the occupants therein. It’s not just a red tape matter — it really is about people’s safety.
No matter the location or the materials or the environment, it’s inevitable that at some point, time will take its toll on any kind of building or structure. Not only that, but if you’ve made any kind of alterations to the building over the course of its 40 year lifetime, then an inspection will be required see if those alterations meet building codes and standards, and how to bring them up to code if they don’t.
Even if that’s not enough to convince you — the fact is, your 40-year inspection is a legally required mandate. It’s not something that’s optional to you or anyone who owns or manages a 40-year-old building.
What can I expect?
Your local or regional entity will provide you with a checklist of elements that must be inspected in order to guarantee safety and compliance with current codes. The inspection elements focus on matters of safety, not on matters of aesthetics — don’t worry if your building has outdated carpet or window shades. The inspection will be looking at things such as structural integrity and the electrical system — the things that actually determine whether a building is still safe.
While the process appears fairly straightforward, you still want to guarantee you have an experienced team of professionals performing your 40-year inspection. The form itself makes it look very simple — it’s basically a checklist and a few blank areas for notes, observations and commentary.
But in reality, your inspector must understand the intricate details of every element presented on the list. Failure to recognize the details could put the occupants in danger, and shorten the lifespan of the structure.
