DIY Home Inspection Southwest Marietta, GA

image025As the year draws to a close, there is no better time than to do a thorough DIY inspection of your home. As your largest investment, it is imperative that you take the necessary means to make sure that your home is doing well and holding up properly. However, as important an investment as your home is, its health is often not given a moment’s thought until one of two things occurs: 1) you plan on moving and need to put it on the market, or 2) something goes wrong. Waiting until the last minute to take care of your home often leaves you with a severe and expensive issue to deal with. While nothing beats a professional inspection of your home, doing a DIY examination of your property can help you catch issues before they become major problems.

The first stop on your DIY inspection should be your foundation. The foundation of your home is undoubtedly the most important component of your entire home. Be on the lookout for cracks, crumbling concrete, water damage, bulging walls, and/or buckling pillars. If you notice any of these signs, contact a foundations expert right away.

Next, it is time to walk around the inside of your home and look at all the walls and ceilings. Cracks, peeling, or crumbling of plaster are all signs of damage. Stains, mold, and condensation are all indicators that water damage has occurred. If you have signs of damage in these areas, it is important to find the source of the damage. Again, this is where you need an expert.

Now it is time to move to your windows and doors. It is important to open and close all windows and doors to ensure that they function properly. Windows and doors that stick or refuse to open often indicate foundation damage. If there are gaps in your windows and/or exterior doors, not only could there be foundation damage, but the energy efficiency of your home has been greatly compromised.

Lastly, inspect your attic and roof. It is necessary that your attic be well ventilated, showing no signs of moisture. Walk around the outside of your home, with binoculars if necessary, to check that there are no missing shingles on the roof. Missing shingles allow rainwater and melting snow to creep into your home and cause extensive water damage.

Tammy S.

From start to finish, everyone at Anglin's was amazing! Gus was responsive, always answered his phone, knowledgeable, professional, honest and fair. He went above and beyond to make a stressful situation less stressful. Scheduling was a breeze and the crew that arrived on the job (on time, I might add) were courteous, respectful and efficient. They allowed me to watch and take pictures, and explained the process step-by-step, as well as what results were to be expected. Iggy was so knowledgeable, professional and amazing. He was able to pin point a problem that 2 other competing companies couldn't explain or relay in layman's terms what needed to be done and why. He was an absolute superstar in easing the mind of the buyers purchasing the house. His 27 years experience was so valuable. Shelly was quick to send paid invoices and warranty information. Everyone did an amazing job and I would recommend them highly.

I cannot say enough good things about GUS at Anglin’s Foundation and Masonry! GUS, was fast and gave a free estimate on raising, reattaching and fixing my brick stairs. I will be sure to post before and after photos! Thank you GUS for your no nonsense, straight forward approach! Thank you for listening to me! The Greensmith’s

Regina Renee Kalasz

Today was a install of a 2nd beam for our house... first one was easy, 2nd one gave them a run for their money. But they stuck it out and got it done! Awesome work! I'd throw a + behind my 5 stars if I could. Sorry I held your crew up, but they were determined to get it done with no issues. So shout out to your team Chris, Leo and Dan!

Scott Lapin

The team that lifted our chimney was prompt, courteous and efficient. Other then the repair, you simply could not tell they were even there despite the fact they had to remove part of our deck to do the work. I would HIGHLY recommend them.

Melissa Reed

Diagnosis and estimate from a picture, arrived as scheduled, done in just a couple hours and results were absolutely amazing. Price, workmanship, clean up - everything was absolutely 5 star!! Highly recommend these folks!!! I must add, 2 other well known and much advertised companies came out and estimated 6x the work and price, claiming we had more issues than what was actually going on. These guys call it like it is - honesty and integrity are hard to find in construction.

Dana Brennan

This crew is top notch. Worked with the office and mainly with Gus on site who was great. Showed up early, super knowledgeable, tons of experience. We really felt served in the way he recommended only what needed to be done and at a great price. Had another company wanting to add in other extras and unnecessary work. HIGHLY recommend Anglin!!

Aaron Gray

Quick to call back and totally honest. I wasn't sure if I had a foundation issue or a flooring issue but after a few questions, Nathan helped to figure out that it thankfully wasn't a foundation issue. Insteand of trying to sell me a job, Nathan helped me to make a good decision. I hope I never have foundation issues but if I do, this is the company I'm hiring.

Jake Herman

Another masonry contractor referred us to Anglin because we had a concern about the structural integrity of our chimneys. We were told that they were the best people to talk to. I called them and they actually came by to assess my house within two hours. Although I was fully prepared to spend a lot of money to stabilize my chimneys, he did a full assessment and very honestly told me that my chimneys were fine and just needed some caulking where the mortar met the brick. I greatly respect his expertise and honesty and would recommend him without reservation.
