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!

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.

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!

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 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.

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!

The Ultimate Home Warranty Checklist

Have you ever seen ads or emails online discussing the extent of a home warranty coverage and wanted to know more about this service? Well, we are here to explain it. Throughout this article, we will explain what a home warranty is and what it covers, three reasons why you might want one, and how Atlanta Property Inspections can help.

What is a Home Warranty & What Does it Cover?

A lot of times, homeowners need clarification on insurance and home warranty. Insurance covers any damage your home may face from some problem. The insurance company usually pays for a lot of the damage. A home warranty is like a service that covers the wear and tear of the appliances and systems in your house. These include but are not limited to the electricity system, plumbing system, HVAC system, major home appliances, etc. The average home warranty can cost around six hundred dollars annually, but this number can change depending on the individual.

Three Reasons Why You Might Want a Home Warranty

If you don’t already have a home warranty and are interested in knowing why you might require one, here are three reasons for you:

  • If you constantly have problems with major devices and systems like air conditioning and refrigerators, you can reduce the cost and time required for repair or replacement.
  • Knowing that home warranties cover certain repairs and replacements, homeowners can comfortably sell or buy houses. For example, if you sell a house, you can repair some parts and increase the value of your property. If you are buying the house, whether you see problems before or after you buy the house, the cost of fixing the problem is no longer a problem.
  • With a home warranty, you can personalize it to provide comprehensive protection for your house. If you believe that the essential systems are covered but things like the pool equipment are not being protected, you can also add them to the warranty and choose them depending on your needs.

Important Points To Consider

As you can see, the benefits of a home warranty are great. However, there are also disadvantages to having a home warranty. In the insurance, there might be a restriction on the amount of systems or items being covered. So, you have to get through the whole terms and read whether the system you want to be covered is being done so. If not, you can speak with the company about including it there. Research and make sure your home warranty does its job well. Lastly, although the warranty covers most of the reconstruction or replacement costs, most of these companies require the homeowner to pay certified home inspectors to ensure that the problem needs repair or replacement. Choosing the right inspection service is important to give the right and necessary information about the warranty.
