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!

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!

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.

Dustin is VERY Detailed Oriented and found items and suggestions on the home that I would have never thought of, the report provided very good insight on how to move forward with the sale of the home!  The staff at API was great to work with!

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!

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 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.

How Long Does A Composite Deck Last?

When it comes to outdoor life, we want the best investments for ourselves- an investment that allows for little maintenance and best looks. Well, this is where composite decks come in place. With its unique materials, the advantages it provides are a lifesaver. Throughout this article, we will learn more about composite decks.

Material of Composite Decks

A normal wood deck can last for around 10 years whereas a composite deck can go for at least 25 years with proper installation. You might be wondering why its lifespan is so long compared to its other competitors. Well, unlike others, the pieces of these decks are made from both wood and plastic films, making the material stronger and offering many other advantages.

Some Advantages of Composite Decks

  • Unlike other wooden decks, a composite deck will not start to break into smaller parts that lead to splinters. These can be annoying especially if you will regularly use them because they can easily get on your skin or clothes.
  • Mold can easily grow on wood surfaces. This growth of mold may lead to it breaking down. However, with composite decks, the unique material will allow you to easily wash it off. This is the main factor in its great lifespan compared to others.
  • Woods age. When a material ages, its color and durability start to fade. That’s why many people constantly color their wood decks because their color can easily fade over a few years. However, composite decks are a combination of wood and plastic, allowing the colors to look live even after 25 years.

Less Care, More Comfort

Woods are a problematic material when it comes to outdoor life. They require deep cleaning and when we clean them, they start absorbing moisture which leads to mold growth and its death over time. Composite decks, however, don’t require deep cleaning and they prevent easy mold growth. So, if you don’t want costly maintenance, then composite decks are the perfect option for you.

Importance of a Reliable and Experienced Service

However, without the right service, all the listed advantages of composite decks will be disadvantages. A reliable and experienced home inspection service will allow you to locate the best place to install your deck. Their planned location will allow the composite deck to have even a greater lifespan and get even more advantages than those listed above.
