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.

Dustin is VERY Detailed Oriented and found items and suggestions on the home that I would have never thought of, the report provided very good insight on how to move forward with the sale of the home!  The staff at API was great to work with!

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!

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!

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!

I would like to recommend Brandon for his excellent job during the inspection. He is very professional, thorough and is an expert in his field. I enjoyed his partnership during inspection, the knowledge he shared of the risks of certain issues was incredible. I am very glad that he inspected the house for us and wishing him more success in future.

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.

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.

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!

Can Weather Affect an Inspection?

Some states of the country usually expect very serious weather conditions. So, what happens when a resident in these states needs a home inspection? Is it still manageable? Knowing how home inspections and weather conditions are related is very important for the inspector and the customer. There are both advantages and disadvantages of doing inspections in harsh weather; we will go over some of these in this article.

Home Inspection Process

During the home inspection process, your inspector will look at your home as a whole and by components. He/she will analyze the components and systems of your home and will let you know if there are any problems with certain parts or if any are dangerous. The process aims to make you aware of the overall situation in your home and what you can do to improve the condition as a homeowner. A home inspector in Marietta will tell you about the most urgent points that need to be taken care of and the basic information you should know about your home, such as where the shutoff valves for various systems are.

Some Tips For Harsh Weather Inspections

  • Follow the weather forecast prior to making an appointment. This way, your chances of scheduling the inspection on a day with nicer weather increases; this way, it’s less risky.
  • If you make your schedule earlier in the day, most of the time, you can benefit from the sunlight.
  • Unfortunately, even if you made your appointment on a day with nice weather, the weather can be unpredictable. If that is the case, make sure to be in constant contact with your inspector throughout the day.
  • If it’s winter, you can try to make the situation easier for the inspector by removing ice and snow from various parts of the exterior of your home.

Look At The Bright Side!

Even if snow and heavy rain don’t seem like the ideal time to inspect, it can be beneficial, particularly for testing a few aspects of your home. For example, the inspector will be able to see more clearly if your home's heating system is adequate, if the insulation is well, if there are any leaks from your roof or plumbing systems, and see how well the roof holds the weight of snow and ice. These observations are quite important for the homeowner and cannot be understood well in sunny weather, so see this as an opportunity. If you are working with the right home inspector, this can be an absolute win.

Have A Peace of Mind When It Comes to Home Inspections

Although they may not appear related at first, the weather can play an important role in home inspection. If you are working with a reliable and experienced home inspector, you have nothing to worry about most of the time. In fact, as we mentioned before, the situation can even be advantageous. This certainly will be the case if you decide to work with a professional home inspector at Atlanta Property Inspection. Our team is experienced in the area and handles many different situations.
