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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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

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.

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!

Double Tapped Breakers

Have you ever looked at your home inspection report and saw something about double-tapped breakers in the electric panel? Most likely you did, and most likely you were confused about what that was. Well, in this article, we will clarify that. When more than one wire is connected to a breaker, it becomes a double-tapped breaker. It is typically not allowed because it carries the risk of fire and therefore harming you and your family. 

Why Is It Dangerous?

Normally, a breaker isn’t suitable for handling two wires, so when there are two wires attached to a single breaker, it will most likely end up in two scenarios. The first one is that one wire is looser than the other one which can possibly spark or arc. The second one is the overloaded breaker, which can continuously trip or overheat. This constant overheating can possibly cause a fire so in both scenarios, double-tapped breakers are dangerous. Because of this, if you notice them, you should reach out to a professional electrical contractor as soon as possible.

If you have never dealt with a double-tapped breaker, it might be hard for you to both identify and fix the problem. The good news is that you have more than one option when it comes to fixing them. Now, we will go over some of the choices you have and when you need to contact a professional.


This is the first method you can use. All you need to have is a short wire and wire knot. Simply take both wires and the third short wire together and twist their ends. Afterward, connect them with a wire knot and simply attach that to the circuit breaker. That’s all you need to do. This is a method that works almost every single time.

Tandem Circuit Breaker

A square-D tandem circuit breaker is designed to accept two wires in a single breaker. There are two slots where two wires can be connected. Especially when installing a new breaker on your panel board, this is a wonderful way of preventing double-tap connections. Simply replace your old circuit breaker.

Call Atlanta Property Inspection

Although you can try out these two techniques on your own, it is better to be safe than sorry. If you aren’t very knowledgeable when it comes to your electrical system, contacting a qualified electrician is a safe and better option. You will most likely need a trustable company but finding them and booking a schedule with them isn't the easiest thing to do. To solve this problem, all you have to do is to call Atlanta Property Inspection. Our home inspectors can give you advice on how to find a reliable electrician while performing a home inspection to see if there are any other defects in your electrical system. This way, when the electrical contractors come to your house, you will be able to take care of any additional things that need to be done in your electrical system at once and this will allow you to save time.
