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!

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.

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.

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!

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!

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!

Many people get their homes ready for fall with their inside decorations. Of course, that’s an amazing way to welcome a new season; however, it is not enough. You must ensure that the exteriors of your home are in good shape as the interiors to go through the upcoming chilly days in a prepared way. This article will cover some of the things you should get done before leaves start to fall.

Gutters

Let’s be realistic. How many of us think about the gutters and their functioning regularly? Most of us don’t. However, they are responsible for draining thousands of gallons of water and naturally undergo deformation. If your gutters are clogged, the exterior surfaces of your home might be damaged, and the clog will eventually lead to corrosion and create even bigger problems. So, before fall, it’s a great idea to clean the gutters; if necessary, you can even replace them.

Faucets and Hoses

The next tip is to protect your faucets. If you are in an area with freezing weather around fall and winter, you should turn off every outdoor faucet before the cold weather strikes. If you don’t do this, they may freeze and even explode. Additionally, you should remove all the garden hoses attached to your faucets. If you leave them attached, the water can back into your plumbing system and damage your pipes greatly.

Roof

Your roof is one of the first defense systems of your house that protects you from harsh weather. If your roof is damaged, you will be prone to electrical faults, water damage, fire hazard, mold and mildew, and many other problems. Fixing a damaged roof during fall and winter is very painful and time-consuming. Therefore, make sure to inspect your roof for any damage to tiles. If you see any broken, cracked, missing, or rusty tiles, replace them before they fall immediately.

Trees

If you have trees and other plants on your property, hiring a professional arborist is a good idea since they can spot diseases and trim them accordingly so you won’t have to deal with broken limbs in bad weather.

Exteriors of Your Home

In addition to your roof, perform an overall inspection of the exteriors of your house and see if there’s any peeling paint and check the foundation for any cracks. Additionally, take care of the possible cracks in your driveway and, most importantly, seal any air leaks you may find. A lot of windows and doors in our houses are prone to air leaks, and if they aren’t sealed before fall, you will make you lose a great deal on the heating bills. Sealing is a very inexpensive procedure, so don’t skip it.

Get Ready for Fall With A Professional Home Inspection

As a homeowner, if you don’t want to inspect your house, that’s alright too. The home inspector team of Atlanta Property Inspection will be more than happy to inspect and tell you about the parts of your house that need to be fixed before the fall. Our professionals will ensure you have everything you need with a thorough home inspection. Call us today to schedule your appointment.
