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.

I called several companies for quotes, and I felt that Atlanta Property Inspections was the most welcoming!  Thereafter, I had a wonderful experience at the inspection. My inspector was thorough, kind, and willing to explain things and answer my questions on site.  He was very knowledgeable and very friendly.  I am glad I did not skip the inspection for this 950 square foot condo, and the review has been very helpful, during my due diligence period in evaluating this potential home.

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.

This was my first experience with Atlanta Property Inspections. Alex Sozonov was my inspector. Very oriented details and willing to explained all questions with professional knowledge. Report came into my email box late night. Clearly, it has been covered all details. Plus, show up on time.

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!

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!

Dustin was absolutely amazing. He did such a thorough job and was super friendly and helpful in explaining everything to me as a first-time homeowner. Highly recommend this company! Very timely and professional throughout the entire process as well!

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!

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!

Have used Atlanta Property Inspections several times for my buyers.  Their team is always very thorough and educational for the new home owners.  Much information is shared about past/current codes, potential issues and how to have the issues repaired.  I will continue to use Atlanta Property Inspectors for future inspections, and my clients have been very happy with their services as well!

Bugs & Insects in Your Basement? Here's Why

Let us create a scenario. You get to your garage like you usually would and suddenly realize that there are many insects in it. You wonder why this occurs and look for a way to fix it. Well, you are lucky because, throughout this article, we will go through the conditions that bugs and insects love, how to get rid of them, and how Atlanta Property Inspection is here to help. So, let’s get started.

Reasons Why You Have Bugs and Insects in Your Basement

Many people don’t think there are any insects in their basements, but there are, you just don’t see them. They usually disappear when they see the light or hear you. You cannot believe how good of a place your basement is for the bugs' survival. That’s why they are always there. Of course, a few factors play a significant role in why they are attracted. These factors can range anywhere from darkness to humidity. Let’s look deeper into how each factor causes them to form.

The Moisture

Most of us don’t like moisture, except for insects. In fact, insects love humidity because it keeps them lubricated. In addition, the moisture gives them the water and warmth required to survive. To avoid this, we must keep our basements as dry as possible. You can first call home inspectors to see if any leaks cause additional water and moisture in the area. This way, your basement will stop the source of the humidity. Also, you can frequently open the windows, if possible, or provide air circulation. Lastly, if you see any water in your basement, simply dry it. These will help keep the bugs and insects away.

The Darkness

The most significant reason pests decide to stay in your basement is its darkness. They need the darkness to hide from predators. So, this is another critical factor for their survival. The darkness allows them to build their nests, lay eggs or even mate easily. If you see a lot of insects in your dark basement, try removing unnecessary and old equipment. This equipment allow the pests to hide and grow. When you remove it, they don’t have a place to hide and don’t like the environment that much.
