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!

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

Childproofing Your Home

Unfortunately, a significant number of children are injured every year due to preventable home accidents. They are curious due to their age and nature, so they can quickly put themselves in relatively dangerous situations. Since our children are our most valuable treasures, we prepared this guide to provide you with some tips on making your home a safer place for your children.

  • Medications

Many babies and toddlers like to put small objects into their mouths. Especially if these objects are colorful, they get more attraction from toddlers. Children who may want to eat the pills can confuse many medications with candy. Since this action can be highly toxic and dangerous for them, you should keep all your medications in a cabinet and lock them, so your child doesn’t have access to them.

  • Attachment of Furniture

Children like to shake various types of furniture, and if oversized items like a wardrobe or a cabinet aren’t mounted to the wall, this creates the risk of falls. So, always ensure the complete attachment of large furniture pieces to prevent falls.

  • Safety Latches

Kitchen drawers tend to store a lot of items. Some common ones are spoons, knives, forks, and cabinets in which many people put their detergent for the washing machine. It would help if you used safety latches to prevent these toxic and sharp materials from harming the kids.

  • As soon as your child can walk, installing safety gates is a wise option.

  • Outlets

Electrocution is a big issue for many homeowners. Since many kids are familiar with the concept of electricity, they can easily electrocute themselves by putting their hands or metal items inside the outlets. To prevent this, you can buy covers for your outlets or install safety switches.

  • Always place different barriers wherever there is a heating source, like a fireplace.

This already goes without saying; any place that has direct contact with the heat or the fire should be covered with barriers.

  • If the electrical cords of your devices are worn out, change them.

  • Install or replace your smoke detectors.

  • Corner covers for the sharp surfaces in your house.

Many kids tend to injure themselves by hitting the sharp edges of various furniture and surfaces. As a result, you should cover the corners of these places.

  • Guards on Windows

Falls are a common hazard for kids. When they see open windows, they may try to throw themselves and end up seriously harmed. So, it’s crucial to put guards on the windows.

  • If you have water containers, you should drain them to avoid drowning.

  • Always keep a first aid kit in your house.
