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 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.

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.

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 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!

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!

Frank Cooper and his team from Atlanta Property Inspections, Inc were excellent! They arrived on time  and thoroughly inspected all areas of the property I was considering renting. They found things that needed to be repaired by the landlord before we signed the lease. Frank reviewed his findings with us. He explained all of his concerns, and he patiently answered all of our questions. Then the next day I received a very detailed report that included several pictures and detailed explanations. If you want a kind, knowledgeable, and thorough inspector, don’t hesitate to call Frank Cooper with Atlanta Property. I would highly recommend him! Truly a 5 star company!

This was our first experience with Atlanta Property Inspections, Frank Cooper was the lead inspector and he was inspecting a new construction one bedroom plus den in Alpharetta for a buyer client of ours. The inspection report was both detailed and comprehensive. We have tried out a few premium home inspection companies over the past year, looking for a good additional inspection resource, and based on our experience with Frank Cooper, I think we have found it.

Atlanta Property Inspections, Inc. was referred to us by our realtor for our home inspection. Our inspector was Cary Cooper. He really took the time to answer all of our questions about his findings. We didn't feel rushed or that any question was too silly. He gave us peace of mind with a few of our concerns and was honest, even if we weren't to thrilled with the news. Overall, it was a great experience and we would definitely use (and refer)  Atlanta Property Inspections, Inc. in the future for any inspection needs.

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.

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.
