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!

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!

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Thorough knowledge of items addressed in report. Home inspector was able to communicate any issues found with buyer and help explain the different items and their severity.

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!

What to Do if Your Home for Sale Suffers Water Damage

Moving your home is a stressful experience in itself. Unexpected situations such as a burst pipe or severe flooding can throw a wretched wrench in your plans. There is no reason to panic though. Your friends at Atlanta Property Inspections are ready to help. Our home inspectors will be by your side from beginning to end. We even help you file your insurance claim and protect you from getting lowballed. Continue reading for some tips on what to do about water damaged property. Call Atlanta Property Inspections to speak with a friendly representative or schedule a home inspection today. We are ready when you are.

Get to Safety

Water damage can be a result of a variety of things, including storms, burst pipes, or even faulty appliances. Water is not necessarily harmless though. Sewage backups from toilets can expose you to pathogens, bacteria, and disease. Worse, floodwater and water from burst pipes may be in contact with electrical wiring and could be carrying electrical currents. It is best to get to safety and call for professionals. You want to call a water damage restoration company as well as your insurance company. Calling Atlanta Property Inspections for a third-party assessment of the damage can save you from getting lowballed by the insurance company.

Document Damages

With safety at the top of your priority list, try to document as much of the damage as possible. Take photos and detailed videos as evidence. This will be valuable when filing your insurance claim. Again, be mindful not to put yourself in harms way just to take photos.

Eliminate the Threat

Emergency response teams and the damage restoration company will work to find the root cause of the water damage and contain the damage. For instance, they will likely turn off the electricity, gas line, and water supply. Once the threat is eliminated, you can head into the property to salvage property such as furniture, clothing, personal property, electronics, appliances, and so forth.

Clean Up and Dry

Water is a conduit for all sorts of bacteria and pathogens. If you are dealing with gray or black water, then wear protective clothing when cleaning up the mess. We recommend you leave the clean up work to a damage restoration company. They have sophisticated machines and equipment to clean the area and remove excess moisture effectively and efficiently. Plus, these costs may be covered by your property insurance company. These are expenses that you want to get quality service for.

Inspect the Property

With the water damage cleaned up and restored, it is time to do a final survey. Have a home inspector come in and evaluate the condition of the property. An extra pair of eyes can catch things you may have missed. Even a little moisture can introduce mold and mildew growth.
