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.

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!

Atlanta Property Inspections, Inc. was referred to us by our realtor for our home inspection. Our inspector was Cary Cooper. He really took the time to answer all of our questions about his findings. We didn't feel rushed or that any question was too silly. He gave us peace of mind with a few of our concerns and was honest, even if we weren't to thrilled with the news. Overall, it was a great experience and we would definitely use (and refer)  Atlanta Property Inspections, Inc. in the future for any inspection needs.

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!

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.

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!

I have hired this company doing inspection on the property that I was planning to purchase in Georgia. I’ve live in California when this was done. Frank Cooper and his team did a great job of inspection and giving me with every details. I really appreciate the advice and the report. Thank you

The inspector Frank came to our house to inspect the deck and provide a list of safety problems. While he was there we asked him to take a look at some termite damage in the attic.  When he went to the attic he spotted problems with a squirrel infestation requiring immediate action to correct for chewed wiring and unsanitary conditions.  We were unaware of this problem.  Frank provided a comprehensive inspection report in PDF format including multiple photos showing deck post deterioration, sagging joists and yes even a picture of the live squirrel in the attic. Frank is totally professional, knows his area of expertise very well and offers sound recommendations on how to correct problems without spending money for unnecessary improvements.  For example he told us the ledger board was in good shape and did not have to be replaced, only secured to the house wall with additional bolts. The small amount we paid for the inspection was well spent because the inspection will end up saving us money in the long run.

10 Things Your Home Inspector Wants You To Know

The home inspection process can be stressful for both the buyer and the seller. It is the last chance for the buyer to find out about any issues with the house before buying it and for the seller, it is the last chance to deal with those issues and negotiate a price. If a professional home inspector discovers major issues with a property, potential purchasers can back out of the purchase or renegotiate the sale price. Therefore, it is important to clarify what is expected from the home inspection process.

The Goal Of The Inspection

A home inspection's goal is to gain an accurate picture of the home's condition before you take financial responsibility for it. Too many homeowners have found themselves responsible for tens of thousands of dollars in repair expenditures that they would never have taken on if they had had an inspection first. Generally, a home inspector will examine the foundation, structural components, roof, HVAC, plumbing, and electrical systems on the inside and outside of the house, and then produce a written home inspection report detailing the findings. It usually takes two to four hours, but depending on the size of the house, it may take longer. The home inspector may take a few days to send the written report after the physical inspection. It’s important for buyers should attend the inspection so that they can thoroughly inspect their new home and ask questions. Simply reading the report wouldn’t be as helpful. This might provide you with a lot more information than just the report.

Essentiality of Home Inspections

Although it is thorough, it is important for both buyers and sellers to know that the process wouldn’t be absolutely perfect. Actually, government inspectors and contractors may not be qualified, or they may try to rush things, so it won’t be possible to notice every single error. Even though it’s not perfect, a home inspection is critical. You can’t simply go for the more affordable option of house inspection otherwise; you should be willing to spend thousands of dollars on your repairs. There’s not a single home or office without faults. It is normal for the home inspector to write a series of problems to the report. Good thing is, almost all of them are fixable so the question you should be asking is "How much will it cost to fix the problem?".

Don’t Worry About Your Inspection

As a buyer, you don't want any surprises when you're buying a house. Surprise repairs lead to unexpected costs, which can quickly dampen your enthusiasm for your new house. You may reduce the likelihood of future repairs by simply hiring a certified home inspector. In Atlanta Property Inspection, we know that home inspection isn’t an easy job, and we will do our best to help you. We see ourselves as more than a simple property inspection company.
