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.

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!

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!

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!

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!

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

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.

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.
