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!

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.

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.

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, 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.

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.

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

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 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!

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.

Dry Basement Ideas from a Home Inspector

Homeowners come across water intrusion problems near their basements. Not only is this costly, annoying, and time-consuming, but it also decreases the value of your property. Most homeowners don’t know the reason for this. To inform everyone, we gathered some information. Throughout this article, we will go through dry basement ideas from an inspector, how home inspection can benefit homeowners and potential buyers, and how Atlanta Property Inspection can help.

Ideas From An Inspector

There are so many mistakes that people make when it comes to basements. Most of the time, these mistakes lead people to face water intrusions and a lot of other troubles later in their lives. Let’s learn a few ideas for a dry basement to avoid regretting not taking action about these mistakes.

  1. To avoid water intrusions, you must start by looking at the exterior part of the house. The slope of the land to the foundation has to be around six inches. If the groundwork doesn’t allow these conditions, adding topsoil would do the job.
  2. A good drainage system is one of the best investments that a homeowner can make. If the land doesn’t allow proper grading, you can install a small swale, a ditch to channel the water away from your basement. Other systems include perimeter drain systems or French drains.
  3. There is almost no foundation that is perfect. Often, you can come across foundation cracks which cause water infiltration. With older stones, this won't be good for the general condition of your basement.
  4. Although it is not a common problem in newer houses, some older houses do not have gutters. If we are trying to avoid one thing, it is keeping water in the basement and other foundations for a long period of time. No gutters result in dripping excessively and directly on the foundation. Call Atlanta Property Inspection to get your home inspection on achieving a dry basement today.

How Can Home Inspection Benefit Homeowners and Potential Buyers?

A home inspection service can benefit both the homeowner and a potential buyer. If you are a homeowner, you can use the report given by professional home inspectors to identify what part of your house is in bad condition and take action towards making it better to increase the value of your property. If you are a potential buyer, you can use the report to note down the bad conditions of the house and arrange a meeting to negotiate the price. However, you need a professional home inspection service for that.
