Thorough and Professional, 10/14/2014

I have used Medallion Inspections twice in a month to inspect potential homes. Very professional team! Both times I had houses inspected, the inspection report arrived in about an hour. I highly... recommend Joe and Jim to anyone looking to have a house inspected.

More Expensive, But Worth It, 10/10/2014

I had Medallion inspect a home that we ended up buying. They sent out two guys: one did the systems and the other the structure. They were very thorough, answered questions, and found many issues... with the house. We ended up asking the seller to fix the issues that were found. They were expensive fixes and would have been deal breakers or a hardship had we purchased and then had to fix ourselves. Medallion works for you and not your agent. They have no interest as to whether you buy the house or not. In my opinion, they looked very closely at the house unlike some inspectors that don't want to find many issues and upset the realtors (and not be recommended by them). Medallion is more expensive than other inspectors I called for estimates, but THEY ARE WORTH IT! Your home is the most expensive investment you are likely to make. Spend extra and hire Medallion. You won't regret it.

  • We found this on a 1 yr old home. When is the builder going to come back and finish the house?
  • The electrical system gets a thorough check.
  • Even fireplaces are checked.
  • Heating and air conditioning are espectially important
  • Sometimes we find things in the attic that surprise even us!
  • We check the foundation on new and existing homes.
  • This expensive remodel in Atlanta included an old car wheel to hold up the sewer drain line
  • The person who installed these pull down stairs in a $760,000 house didn't understand geometry!
  • The builder said this roof was finished on this new $3/4 million home, complete w/plywood shingles!
  • The top of the shutters on this new home weren't painted. Rain will ruin them quickly. Are yours?
  • These gutters are holding water because they were never pitched properly.
  • Choose Medallion and be sure you get a complete inspection.
  • We use thermal imaging cameras to conduct scans of insulation, HVAC ducts, & electrical panel.
  • Home before a thermal scan
  • Thermal scan of the home
  • A beautiful home we recently inspected.

Best Home Inspectors in Atlanta Metro area

Medallion inspectors are very thorough in their work. They pointed out some important flaws which we would have never found. The thermal imaging which they do is another great thing as it helps in ensuring proper insulation for your home.

Medallion Inspections replied on 10-10-2014

Thank you Mandar. We enjoyed working for you and appreciated your strong interest in what we found. The thermal infrared camera is very helpful in some cases - such as in your house. it lets us see what otherwise might not be visible since we cannot open walls or see inside of hidden spaces. Thanks again. Jim, Joe, Christine and Beverly

They know what they are doing

Medallion Inspections is the company to use if you suspect mold in your home or any other kind of fungus even airborne pathogens. My son had a full body rash and doctor said it was an allergic reaction to something in the house. Medallion tested the entire house with air samples and also took samples to test for mold. They had FLIR to see through walls to see if there is pipe leakage. How great they didn't need to knock out the walls for this. I am on a tight budget and couldn't afford the water test but they found a cheaper way to test my water with ANOTHER company...that shows how they truly wanted to help me and my son and find what is affecting him. In the end they sent me a detailed report of everything. This service isn't cheap but when it comes down to it you get what you pay for....and if you want it done right go with Medallion Inspections.

Medallion Inspections replied on 04-25-2012

Thanks cathm. We perform mold and air quality assessments all the time. Some among us are more sensitive to our surroundings, so the testing and evluation services we provide helps people understand the true extent of the condition of concern. Glad we could help.

Excellent pair of gentleman w/ quality in mind

I've used these guys twice in one year and I have to say, their eye for quality is quite excellent. I'd recommend them to anyone. Yes, they might scare you w/ things they find, but it is to your benefit.

Medallion Inspections replied on 04-25-2012

Tnanks zsoldier. We hope we didn't scare you with our findings. We simply tell you factually what we find. We work to provide you good information to help you make a fully informed decision. The decision to proceed or not with the purchase requires far more information than the home inspection, but it is a very important part. Thanks again.

They make sense of it!

Not only a thorough inspection, but a well articulated explanation/ overview (layman's terms)that helped me better understand all they did. I trust their expertise and recommend them to anyone.

Medallion Inspections replied on 04-25-2012

Thanks Tryshee. It takes a lot of work on our part to convey a condition on the house, what it means, and what should be done to correct it. Glad we could help. J+J+C

Home Inspection

I hired Medallion Inspections on the recommendation from my friend/owner of Redifinest Inc. i was very impressed with the service and their prices are reasonable compared to what others were charging for the home of the same size. They promptly sent the inspection report as promised and i was impressed with issues they found in a relatively new house. i also had a complimentary Termite inspection with ALLGOOD PEST Solutions as a referral from Medallion Inspections. i would recommend this service anyday !

Worthy of Company Name

The two people they sent out (Jim and Joe) arrived much earlier than expected, but got to work straight away. Every step of the way, without my prodding, they let me in on what it was they were checking for, and concerns they had. Essentially, they kept me active within the process. The turnaround time for receiving the report was amazing (within 90 minutes in my case) and laid everything out in layman's terms. Great people, great service, great company.

Medallion Inspections replied on 03-14-2012

Thank you mbarringtons. Each of us are blushing at your comments, even Christine our business manager who keeps us scheduled and on time. We spend hours each week trying to improve our inspection tools, including our software, so that we can deliver a clear, concise report promptly. In fact, while one of us is driving to the next appointment or back to the office, the other inspector is working on the laptop reviewing and writing. We're happy to have been able to inspect for you and make a difference. You are the first to draw the reference between our company name, Medallion, with the level of our service. Thanks again.

Great Inspection Style

I really like working with Medallion. The inspection period is shorter but you get two inspectors! One works on structural, the other mechanical.

Medallion Inspections replied on 03-04-2012

Thanks Gabby. We were at your new house for 2 hours, or a total of 4 man hours. You found a home in good condition, too. Thanks J+J+C.

Love these guys

They are so fun to watch together, and to work together. They've got the most critical eyes and can explain a lot of things in details. They have also helped me get another inspector for mold right at the spot, as our deadline was pushing, and with that lead to two more steps inbetween but basically, we got a $4K deal from the bank for the REO property. This positive review is the least I could do to show them how much I appreciated (& enjoyed) working with the two character guys!

Medallion Inspections replied on 03-04-2012

Thanks mitsukoki. We really enjoy our work, and we work well as a team. Also, we now offer mold testing ourselves, too, and carry the equipment with us so we can collect samples and send them to the lab as soon as we leave the inspection. We are glad we were able to provide you the information needed to get a $4,000 reduction from the bank seller. Thanks again. J+J+C.

Exceptional!

Jim and Joe are the best! We were present for the inspection and they took the time to explain all of their findings. Their inspection was incredibly thorough and they pointed out even the most minute things in the report. We are so glad that we chose Medallion Inspections - it was absolutely worth the money that we paid! We have since closed on our new home and were able to use the inspection report in negotiating a lower price (and repairs!) with the former owners. We are happy that we can now move into our new home without worrying about any potential hazards.

Very thorough

We are in the process of purchasing our first home. We chose Medallion based on kudzu reviews and are so happy that we did. Two inspectors came out and they were very thorough. We did not have to follow them around making sure they checked everything, like friends have had to do with other inspectors. Our report was ready almost immediately and was complete with pictures and color coded by what was most important to have fixed. We would definitely recommend Medallion to anyone looking for a good, thorough home inspector.

Medallion Inspections replied on 03-14-2012

Thanks corgisncollies. We try hard to be thorough, much to the displeasure sometimes of the real estate agents. Naturally most agents don't want anything to be wrong with the house. We report to our customers and want to be sure we give them an accurate assessment of the condition of the house. Its true when we say, "we help people make informed decisions". We don't say whether or not we would buy the house. Instead, our job is to help our customers have a good understanding of the true condition of the house so they can make their own decision. Some folks don't mind work that has to be done, while others prefer not to have to deal with it. Glad we were able to help you. Thanks again. J+J+C

professional and friendly.

It's was a great experience. The inspectors were informative, they spent an hour after the inspection to show me the best way to maintain the house. I really recommend them, also because their report was detailed and easy to read. Not every inspector would go up to the roof to inspect it, but they did. Thank you very much for your high quality service.

Medallion Inspections replied on 02-22-2012

Thank you professional.hala. Whenever we can, we share our thoughts and suggestions. And we focus on trying to keep our reports useful and readable. Too often other inspectors write reports that are confusing and painful to read. We won't, and if we have you at the house, we'll try and be sure you are aware of what we are going to put in the report - and what it means. Glad we were able to help. J+J+C

Great inspectors, explain everything

You expect your home inspectors to be thorough, courteous, and professional and Medallion certainly are. But the best thing about their inspection is they walk you around the entire house and explain, in detail and at length, everything that they find, good and bad. To someone who is buying their first home like myself, this is one of the most valuable things you can have an inspector do. Another great feature is that your inspection report is available immediately with detailed and marked photographs of everything they find. I had high expectations based on the reviews here, but I feel Medallion still went above and beyond what I was expecting and I would not hesitate to use them again.

Medallion Inspections replied on 02-22-2012

Thanks izaffuto. We are sincerely humbled by your review. We want to do the same for EVERY customer. That's why we only do 2 inspections each day, not 3 or 4 like some other inspectors try and race to get done. Thanks again. J+J+C

So fast, so Professional

This is the 2nd time I have used them, and no doubt next time I buy a house i will just use them again. They are fast, super up to date on the new technologies. They find stuff that you would not even think is important...but it really is. The guys are always early. I just wished they would give a discount for returning customers!

Medallion Inspections replied on 02-22-2012

Thank you shansultan. And thanks for trusting us a second time to inspect your new house. As you mention, we try and use technology that allows us to spend more time looking at the house instead of writing on a clipboard. Technology allows us to be more detailed, more consistent, and more timely. Clients read and sign their custom inspection agreement online, receive an email confirmation and appointment reminders, and receive their report online too. And, if any of our clients need their report 10 years from now, we will still have it! Every so often a customer calls a few years later and ask if we can send them their report. The answer is yes we can. Thanks again. J+J+C

Best Inspection Experience Ever

These guys are trustworthy, professional, helpful (offering helpful suggestions), and they pay attention to detail, which is critical in a home inspection. Not only that, but reasonably priced, and their scheduling system is fully automated (electronic). Excellent value for the $$.

Medallion Inspections replied on 02-20-2012

Thanks susieber. You had tremendous energy and were anxious to learn. The most important ingredient in an inspection is the desire to learn by the home buyer. We're glad we could be helpful. Enjoy your new home. Call us in 10 or 11 months for your warranty inspection! Thanks Jim, Joe & Christine
