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.

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.

Frank Cooper and his team from Atlanta Property Inspections, Inc were excellent! They arrived on time  and thoroughly inspected all areas of the property I was considering renting. They found things that needed to be repaired by the landlord before we signed the lease. Frank reviewed his findings with us. He explained all of his concerns, and he patiently answered all of our questions. Then the next day I received a very detailed report that included several pictures and detailed explanations. If you want a kind, knowledgeable, and thorough inspector, don’t hesitate to call Frank Cooper with Atlanta Property. I would highly recommend him! Truly a 5 star company!

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!

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!

Jeremy was the best to work with! He was on time,  very thorough in his explanations of his findings, and took time with my clients to make sure he answered all of their questions. He was detailed, and provided follow up when we needed additional questions answered. He went above and beyond! Best, quality, customer service I’ve seen in a long time! I’ll recommend him and Atlanta Property Inspections every time!

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.

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.

A Home Inspection Can Protect Your Investment

If you are buying a house for the first time, it is normal for you to be inexperienced. When you are in the process of buying a house, different decoration and staging techniques may lead you to think that the house is in perfectly good condition, however, it is hiding a lot of flaws you couldn’t notice. This is why every customer who is going through the process of buying a home needs to hire a home inspector in Suwanee, GA. You need an objective look at the condition of the house and who can give you that information better than a professional who specializes in inspections of homes?

What is Covered by a Home Inspection?

Before writing a report on the findings of the house, an inspector will look into many different aspects of a home. So, what will a home inspector look at during the process?

Outside Walls

The inspector will look at the outside walls to see if there are any cracks that might be a place for insect nesting.

Foundation

Of course, the inspector won't be inspecting the foundation directly because they aren’t visible most of the time. However, they will look for certain signs such as exterior cracks or sagging floors. 

Garage

Another very important part of the exterior is the garage door.  It will be closely looked at to see if it opens and closes and its general safety will be reviewed too.

Plumbing

To check for the plumbing system of the house, every single faucet and shower will be examined to see if there are any leaks and to see if the water pressure is the right amount. This examination will also show if the house has old pipes. 

Electrical

The wiring of the house will be inspected in addition to testing every outlet. If there are safety issues regarding the circuit, they will be reported by the inspector.

Benefits of Home Inspection

Homeowner's Insurance

If you’re trying to get homeowners insurance, most of them will require you to have a home inspection before. Therefore, getting a home inspection will help you get your homeowner’s insurance approval.

No More Regrets

A proper home inspection will prevent regrets afterward. If you buy a house without a home inspection beforehand, soon you may notice that you have leaky faucets, a faulty electrical circuit, or an HVAC system that keeps breaking down, and soon you will understand you will need to pay thousands of dollars for the repair of all these systems.

Assists You in Making Ready for a Speedy, Profitable Sale

The home inspection process doesn’t only help the buyers, it will also help the sellers with their investments. Think about it, if you get a home inspection before deciding to sell your house, you will be aware of the problems with your house that might cause the customers from withdrawing their deal. If you know these in advance, you will be able to repair certain things and your house will be seen recently refurbished.

Negotiations on the purchase price

As the buyer, if you learn all the faults with the property, you can even try to renegotiate the price. Considering all the repairs and other controls, the seller may lower the cost, and this can help you save a great deal of money.

Know What To Expect

After the inspection, your home inspector will tell you about all the repairs you need to have if you buy the house. This way, you know what to expect cost-wise and maybe rethink your budget considering all the necessary improvements.

Reliable Home Inspection Process

A professional home inspection should be a part of your house-buying process if you want to handle every aspect of it correctly.
