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!

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.

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.

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!

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!

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!

How Long Does a Home Inspection Take?

A professional home inspection is usually initiated by the prospective homebuyer during the initial purchase, but periodic examinations are important if you want to monitor the condition of your property. Of course, it is not uncommon for sellers to hire an inspector either. Some sellers choose to secure their sale before advertising the property. Whether this is your first rodeo or not, you might be wondering how long a home inspection takes nowadays. Your friends at Atlanta Property Inspections have the rundown here. Call Atlanta Property Inspections if you have any questions or concerns, or if you would like to schedule a face-to-face meeting.

The Factors to Consider

There is no silver bullet or cookie-cutter answer. The question of how long a home inspection takes depends on a number of variables. Some of the factors to consider include:

  • The Size of the House: Larger homes will take longer to inspect.
  • The Age of the House: Older houses can have outdated plumbing, electrical, and roofing as well as other age-related issues.
  • Accessibility: Is the property difficult to access? Does it include a basement, attic, crawl space, or structures that are difficult to inspect?
  • Local and State Laws: Local governments can set specific standards that affect the length of the inspection.

The representatives at Atlanta Property Inspections are happy to take your call for a consultation. We can work with you to evaluate the property’s specifications and estimate how long it might take to inspect the home. We are ready when you are.

What Does a Home Inspection Entail?

Everyone has an idea of what a home inspection is about, but what does a professional home inspection actually entail? The inspector is not going to focus on cosmetic issues such as cracked paint or peeling wallpaper. Instead, the inspector will analyze the building’s major systems essential to the house’s function. These include the electrical system, plumbing system, HVAC system, foundation, and more. The home inspection also involves testing for health and safety hazards such as lead, radon, mold, and pests.

Cut to the Chase: How Long?

Again, we cannot give you an exact estimate without seeing your property first, but we can give you a rough guess based on our experience. The average home inspection time, based on our unique experience, is between two and three hours. A basic, 1000-square-foot home can take less than two hours and you can add about 30 minutes for every 500 square feet of space.
You are welcomed to call Atlanta Property Inspections to consult with a representative and get a more detailed estimate. Our courteous representatives are always happy to help.
