Industrial Appraisal – The Leader in Religious Appraisals

Industrial Appraisal has performed accurate, supportable appraisals on thousands of churches throughout the United States.


Houses of worship of all denominations and styles possess a special value and quality to those who own and attend them. Not only do the buildings themselves have great significance, but their unique features and contents make an accurate appraisal of their value a critical factor in good stewardship of the property and in establishing a sound insurance program.

Stained glass, fine arts, pipe organs and religious artifacts are just some of the many special features of a house of worship that can be difficult to appraise without the experience and understanding of their value.

And while an insurance appraisal can’t eliminate the emotional anxiety of a property loss, it can at least relieve the financial consequences. Should such a loss occur, the lack of an accurate appraisal can be devastating to the organization and its community.

Industrial Appraisal Company can help you manage the risk of loss through a comprehensive appraisal of the property, building, its contents, as well as the exceptional features that uniquely distinguish houses of worship from other types of structures.
