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.

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!

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.

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.

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!

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!

I have hired this company doing inspection on the property that I was planning to purchase in Georgia. I’ve live in California when this was done. Frank Cooper and his team did a great job of inspection and giving me with every details. I really appreciate the advice and the report. Thank you

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 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.
