Dustin was absolutely amazing. He did such a thorough job and was super friendly and helpful in explaining everything to me as a first-time homeowner. Highly recommend this company! Very timely and professional throughout the entire process as well!

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!

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!

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!

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.

We are relocating from out of state and we were in need of an inspection with a very tight turn around. We received incredibly thorough reporting and an availability to answer questions quickly. Cary Cooper’s professional and expert insight saved us from a potential health hazard. I would very much recommend Atlanta Property Inspection for any of your inspection needs!

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.

Home Inspections vs. Code Inspections

Are you in the process of buying or selling a house and need to know whether its mechanical, plumbing, electrical and structural system is in good condition? Then it's important to hire reliable home inspectors that can perform this vital task accurately. The specialists at Atlanta Property Inspections offer premium home inspection services for local property owners, real estate professionals, and potential buyers. Are you unsure about whether you should be hiring home inspectors or relying solely on building code inspectors employed by the government? Many people aren't aware of the differences between these two types of inspections. Here is a quick overview of what these inspections can provide, so you can make the best decision for your property.

The Role of a Building Code Inspector

A building code inspector is an employee of the government who can inspect properties and enforce the current building codes for that particular county or city. They play an essential role in ensuring that newly constructed homes and commercial buildings are built according to the appropriate standards so that the community itself can remain safe. They can assist with building permits, issue a Certificate of Occupancy, and condemn properties. However, the building code inspection will only ensure that the building meets the minimum standards. They do not check for the level of workmanship, evaluate properties for real estate transactions, or thoroughly inspect the electrical, plumbing, or mechanical systems that are essential to the value or efficiency of the property.

What Do Home Inspectors Do?

A professional home inspection will go above and beyond what a basic building code inspection can offer. The home inspection process will look at the finer details and ensure that the vital aspects of your property's construction are of sound condition. During the appointment, your inspector should thoroughly examine the following:

  • Roof
  • Exterior Walls, Decks, Balconies, Patios, and Steps
  • HVAC System
  • Foundation, Basement, and Crawlspaces
  • Plumbing System
  • Electrical System
  • Ventilation, Insulation, and Attic
  • Windows, Doors, and Interior
  • Termites and Pest Control Issues
  • Fireplace
  • And More

Advantages of Investing in a Professional Home Inspection

Whether you are a home buyer, real estate professional, or construction company, it is always a good idea to invest in the services of a professional home inspector. Doing so will ensure that your property surpasses the minimum standards and is properly evaluated for its value, longevity, and safety. This is essential for homeowners who want to make sure that their new investment will provide the long-term results they want for their family. Home inspections can also assist real estate investors who want to minimize legal issues and future frustrations by ensuring that the property they are selling or renting is in top condition.
