Building Inspections & Maintenance

All diocesan-owned buildings must be professionally inspected every 10 years. Through the inspection schedule, two deaneries per year from different episcopal areas are identified to complete their inspections within the year.

Church buildings must be inspected by a professional commercial/institutional building inspector with the requisite expertise, training and insurance. The Diocese doesn’t endorse or require parishes to use a specific inspection firm. You’re free to procure an appropriately qualified commercial inspection company of your choice.

The building inspection is also known as a Property Condition Assessment (PCA).

For rectory inspection requirements, see the Rectories page. You can find resources on ongoing property maintenance in the Parish Property Maintenance Guidelines.
