CCPIA Videos - Certified Commercial Property Inspectors Association

About this video:

There are two viewpoint approaches that commercial property inspectors should employ to assess cracks:

  • Micro viewpoint: Assessing the building from close proximity.
  • Macro viewpoint: Assessing the building from a distance.

Each approach provides inspectors with different information. While the micro viewpoint may limit the inspector’s view and understanding of identified conditions, the macro viewpoint can provide a broader perspective. Utilize both to avoid misinterpretations of conditions.
