We are relocating from out of state and we were in need of an inspection with a very tight turn around. We received incredibly thorough reporting and an availability to answer questions quickly. Cary Cooper’s professional and expert insight saved us from a potential health hazard. I would very much recommend Atlanta Property Inspection for any of your inspection needs!

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.

Atlanta property inspections gave me a very competitor quote and stuck to it for final pricing. They were able to get someone out to do the inspection so quickly. Frank and James were very thorough and helpful during the process they encouraged me to look at what they found, the good and bad, so I knew exactly what I am buying.  I couldn't have asked for a better inspection experience!

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.

I would like to recommend Brandon for his excellent job during the inspection. He is very professional, thorough and is an expert in his field. I enjoyed his partnership during inspection, the knowledge he shared of the risks of certain issues was incredible. I am very glad that he inspected the house for us and wishing him more success in future.

WOW! I can't even make this story up. In this very crazy market (June 2021) it seemingly takes 2 week closing (sometimes with *0* days due diligence!) to purchase a home. Anyway, Frank came recommended by another very reputable inspector, and I was fortunate he came!! The home we were looking at for my mother was a 1975 build and within 1 hour of the inspector being there a FIRE from an electrical panel broke out! Frank contained the fire, and was SO calm, had his team address the matter, was in touch with the agent and homeowner. He said in over 20+ years of him inspecting homes nothing like this had ever happened. Anyway the inspection was VERY thorough and Frank handled all matters very professionally. We will be working with Frank and his team on any home inspections in the future. I highly recommend!

This was my first experience with Atlanta Property Inspections. Alex Sozonov was my inspector. Very oriented details and willing to explained all questions with professional knowledge. Report came into my email box late night. Clearly, it has been covered all details. Plus, show up on time.

The inspector was really thorough and was patient in explaining to me what he was observing. He showed me where the shutoff valve was for the water and gave recommendations on various things. The report that was provided made sense and pictures were taken of some things that were found. The inspector was also very personable which put me at ease about asking questions. Thank you, Alex and Atlanta Property Inspections!

How Long Will That Last?: Every Homeowner's Concern

Wherever you are buying a new house or a new appliance, your immediate question is most likely "How long will this appliance last?". That’s because most appliances require regular maintenance and if one day the appliance or device doesn’t work anymore, you should know whether a repair is sufficient, or replacement is a better option since the device is about to complete its lifespan. In this article, we will go over some of the factors that influence the lifespan of devices, the lifespans of certain devices, and understanding whether your device needs repair or replacement.

Here are some factors that influence the lifespan of your devices:

  • Usage – Of course, this goes without saying. If you use a device quite frequently, it is more likely to deteriorate. This rule applies to not only devices but to our septic systems, pipes, water heaters, and HVAC systems. The amount of effort for a single person isn’t the same for a five-member family.
  • Class – With the brand and the class of the appliances, the lifespan also changes. That’s why there are so many price differences for the same appliance between different brands. Most of the higher-class brands design their devices with higher quality components, so they last for a longer amount of time.
  • Maintenance – We can’t stress this enough, for every appliance and system in your house, regular maintenance increases the lifespan and will allow you to save significant amounts of money.

What To Do When Device Stops Working?

When a device stops working, most homeowners don’t know whether it is time to replace them or whether a simple repair would be enough. So, we have some tips for you.  First, check to see if the device is plugged in and see if it receives electricity. If it’s plugged in, make sure everything is alright with the circuit breaker.  Afterward, make sure the sensors, filters, or other openings of the device aren’t filled with dust.  If you follow all these steps and your device still doesn’t work, then it’s time to call a professional to see if you need repair. However, if you already know your device is close to completing its lifespan, it might be a better idea to replace it.

Lifespans of Some Appliances

  • Fridges- Fridges are one of the devices that work the most in our homes, it works 24/7 and still have a lifespan of 10 and 20 years. However, to maximize this number, make sure to clean all the surfaces and the shelves in a gentle manner, reset the temperature of the fridge periodically, and try to keep the base of the fridge by regular vacuuming as well.
  • Washer- Normal lifespan of a washer is 10-13 years but it really depends on the brand. To increase the lifespan of your washers, you should avoid excessive amounts of detergents and don’t overload the machine. Another important point is avoiding leaving wet clothes inside the machine as the humidity and moisture can create mold.
  • Water Heaters- When it comes to water heaters, there are so many different models so giving an exact number would not be right. However, most people use conventional water heaters, and they have a lifespan of 8-12 years. As for maintenance, calling professionals is always the best choice.

Are You Having a Hard Time Keeping Up With Devices?

Most of us have so many different systems and appliances in our houses, so it might be hard to keep up with the conditions of all of those. If you are thinking about selling your property in the future and want to ensure you have the best deal by having new appliances call the home inspectors of Atlanta Property Inspection. During the home inspection process, our professionals will tell you which appliances need to be replaced for increasing your home’s value and will guide you accordingly.
