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!

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!

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.

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!

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!

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!

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.

FAQs About A Home Inspection Report

A home inspection is a process in which a professional carries out an unbiased assessment of the general state of a building, generally a house. In today’s world, most real estate transactions are dependent on a home inspection because companies and buyers require them. During the inspection process, the professional home inspector goes through various systems of the home and writes a report about the status in the end. Inspection tries to find any flaws or issues with the property that might affect its value. Additionally, inspectors offer advice on what fixes or upkeep should be carried out to keep the property in good shape. The buyer or seller may choose to accompany the inspector during the process most of the time. If you are thinking about buying a house or selling the house, being active during the inspection process will be very important to you, and this entails not only being present during the inspection but also the right interpretation of the home inspection report. In this article, we will go over some of the most commonly asked questions regarding the inspection and inspection report.

How Does The Report From The House Inspection Look?

The report is usually separated into sections such as plumbing, foundation, electrical system, roofing, exteriors, etc. In each section, what the overall view looks like is described, continued by the obvious problems and risks. If needed, photographs can be attached. In every report, in addition to the details that were examined, the details that weren’t examined are also mentioned for the sake of being unbiased. 

How To Interpret A Report Of A Home Inspection?

As a person who’s not in this industry, understanding the home inspection report can be challenging, especially if you’re not familiar with the terminology. But, as a buyer or seller, it’s important for you not to miss anything. So, make sure to have a copy of the report after the inspection, and after reading the entire thing, you can clarify the things that you didn’t completely understand with the home inspector in Milton, GA.

What If There Is A Problem With The Report Or Home Inspection?

Sometimes the buyer can be unsatisfied with the service provided, such as certain problems being overlooked and not included in the inspections. In this case, according to the American Society of Home Inspectors, the buyer should talk with the inspector regarding their concerns and problem. Most of the time, it’s a misunderstanding and can be solved with clarification. 

What Happens When The Report Shows A Set Of Problems Regarding The House?

Well, this shouldn’t really be surprising. No home is absolutely flawless, and the whole point of the inspection is to detect any issues regarding the home and look for ways to handle the situation, whether you are a buyer or seller. After the problems with the house are determined, the rest is up to the buyers or sellers. The inspector’s job is to provide you with the necessary information one needs to know regarding the house. Every house is different, and there’s a variety of solutions.

So, Your Report Turned Out To Be Well. Did You Even Need This In The First Place?

Absolutely, now you know your property’s worth and can be more confident when it comes to either buying or selling. Otherwise, there wouldn’t be any way of knowing. If the inspection revealed some minor problems, you know what you need to take care of.
