I called several companies for quotes, and I felt that Atlanta Property Inspections was the most welcoming!  Thereafter, I had a wonderful experience at the inspection. My inspector was thorough, kind, and willing to explain things and answer my questions on site.  He was very knowledgeable and very friendly.  I am glad I did not skip the inspection for this 950 square foot condo, and the review has been very helpful, during my due diligence period in evaluating this potential home.

My client used the company for their home inspection during their due diligence period. Jeremy and his partner were very kind and accommodating with answering questions. The report was very thorough and I like that they also note positive things about the homes in their report as well and not just what's wrong with the house. You can read the good and the bad.

Atlanta Property Inspections came to do a pre-purchasing inspection on a home my husband and  I plan to buy! We had a very short due diligence period, but that was no issue for these guys. They fit us in their schedule on very short notice and were such a pleasure to work with. Cary and Riley came to do the inspection and did a fantastic job walking us through the inspection to let us know what they found, and suggestions on how to fix all of the issues! Shout out to Cary, for answering all of our questions and having such a great personality! We truly appreciate you guys taking the time to help us through such a very stressful time. We HIGHLY recommend this company!

Dustin was very knowledgeable and friendly and made my client feel confident in his explanations.  He was quick to point out the positives of the home he was inspecting.  His report was delivered within 18 hours of the inspection and had plenty of photos and very easy explanations in laymen's terms. I highly recommend Atlanta Property Inspections.

The inspector Frank came to our house to inspect the deck and provide a list of safety problems. While he was there we asked him to take a look at some termite damage in the attic.  When he went to the attic he spotted problems with a squirrel infestation requiring immediate action to correct for chewed wiring and unsanitary conditions.  We were unaware of this problem.  Frank provided a comprehensive inspection report in PDF format including multiple photos showing deck post deterioration, sagging joists and yes even a picture of the live squirrel in the attic. Frank is totally professional, knows his area of expertise very well and offers sound recommendations on how to correct problems without spending money for unnecessary improvements.  For example he told us the ledger board was in good shape and did not have to be replaced, only secured to the house wall with additional bolts. The small amount we paid for the inspection was well spent because the inspection will end up saving us money in the long run.

Have used Atlanta Property Inspections several times for my buyers.  Their team is always very thorough and educational for the new home owners.  Much information is shared about past/current codes, potential issues and how to have the issues repaired.  I will continue to use Atlanta Property Inspectors for future inspections, and my clients have been very happy with their services as well!

Jeremy was the best to work with! He was on time,  very thorough in his explanations of his findings, and took time with my clients to make sure he answered all of their questions. He was detailed, and provided follow up when we needed additional questions answered. He went above and beyond! Best, quality, customer service I’ve seen in a long time! I’ll recommend him and Atlanta Property Inspections every time!

Common Toilet Installation Issues

A toilet must be properly installed; otherwise, it can cause even the simplest problems that don't seem related to the toilet. So, to inform everyone, we gathered some information. Throughout this article, we will go over the common problems that can be related to installation issues, two of the most common issues, like loose toilets and caulking the base, and how Atlanta Property Inspections can help. So, let’s get started.

Common Problems That Can Be Related To Installation Issues

Installation issues can cause many problems. We can’t list all of them here; however, we did gather some of the most common problems. Let’s go over some of them in this section.

  • Constant Running Toilet: If a toilet is constantly running, water flows into the tank through the fill valve. Although it may not seem related to the installation process, it is highly likely to play a role. Call a home inspection service to learn more.
  • Toilet Leaks: If there is a toilet leak, there can be many reasons for this. However, this problem is something that no homeowner should avoid. One of the most common reasons for this can be the lack of proper installation. Without wasting any more time, call a plumber to get it fixed.
  • Loose Toilet Handle: One of the most common and basic problems homeowners face with their toilets is the loose handle. This can simply be fixed by tightening the mounting nut. Ensure this isn’t too tight, as pushing the handle may be harder than normal.
  • Rocking Toilet: If your toilet constantly moves when you sit on it and you can feel it rocking, most likely either the toilet wasn’t installed properly, or the toilet has been used for decades now.

Loose Toilet

Loose toilets can be one of the most common causes of the problems listed above. The simplest cause is that the bolts that secure the toilet are loose and have to be tightened. However, you must make sure they aren’t too tight, as they can crack the base. Sometimes, the bolts can be corroded. In this case, removing the toilet and resetting it can be a good option.

Caulking The Base

The second step to ensuring the toilet is properly installed is caulking the base of the floor. After ensuring the toilet is secured to the floor, caulking is required in residential and commercial codes, which is why many home inspectors look at it. It can help prevent leaks from the bowl that is trapped in the tank. This will allow the homeowner to stop the toilet from moving over time, secure it to the ground, and prevent some leaks.
