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!

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!

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!

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!

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.

How to Prepare for a Home Insurance Inspection

Although they're kind of similar, compared to a regular home inspection, a house insurance inspection determines whether the replacement cost of your home is within the insurance company's initial estimate; on the other hand, a regular home inspection evaluates the general condition of a property. Insurance inspection will also reveal any hazards that you might not have mentioned when applying for your coverage. Your insurer may raise or lower your premium if the insurance inspector discovers that the replacement value of your house differs from the first estimate made by the insurance company.

What Is The Importance Of Insurance Inspection?

Not all companies require an insurance inspection. The aim of the whole process is for the insurance provider to determine the cost of replacing a home. This is how the insurance provider evaluates risk in order to predict the possibility that you may have to make a claim for losses and decide how much your premium will cost. So, even though they can be conducted for a variety of reasons or even at random, these companies usually require house inspections for older properties and those located in regions more vulnerable to severe natural disasters like hurricanes, tornadoes, and wildfires. Additionally, you might have to get your house inspected before the next time your policy is up for renewal if you have been with the same home insurance company and haven't had one done recently.

How Do Insurance Inspections Work?

A good way to be prepared for the insurance inspection is to perform a comprehensive check-up yourself before the actual inspection takes place so you won't be caught off guard by any issues. If you see any possible problems, take care of them as best you can or get in touch with a helpful contractor. Here are some of the areas you can check:

Exterior

  • Check the roof to see if it has shingles that are missing or damaged.
  • Get your chimney professionally cleaned and see if there are any fractures or loose bricks.
  • Pruning your trees seasonally to keep the branches away from your house.
  • Make sure your gutters are free of debris.
  • Examine the windows, doors, and siding for damage, leaks, and cracks.

Interior

  • Verify the fire extinguisher's functionality.
  • Clean your fireplace.
  • See if there are any leaks or pest problems.
  • Make sure your carbon monoxide and smoke detectors are operational.
  • Make sure your HVAC system is working and is clean.

How Will You Be Affected By This?

Depending on the result of the inspection, your premium rate may change. Your rate may go up if your insurer finds out about extra liabilities not covered by the original policy or if the replacement value turns out to be more than you had originally projected. On the other hand, if your home is in a better condition compared to what was stated in your insurance claim, the company may reduce your premium.
