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.

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

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!

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.

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!

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.

This was my first experience with Atlanta Property Inspections. Alex Sozonov was my inspector. Very oriented details and willing to explained all questions with professional knowledge. Report came into my email box late night. Clearly, it has been covered all details. Plus, show up on time.

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 It Take to Do a Home Inspection

Did you recently purchase an older property that needs to be assessed for hidden dangers? Are you thinking about buying a previously owned home but want to make sure that it is a safe investment? Home inspection services are one of the best ways for owners to ensure that their property offers a secure environment for those living inside. If you’re concerned about the well-being of your house, then call Atlanta Property Inspections today. Whether you are renting a home or are using the property for your own family, our reliable home inspectors have the training and experience required to identify signs of trouble. One of the most frequent questions that property owners have about their home inspection service is how long it will last. While it would be nice to deliver a concise one-size-fits-all answer, the truth is that it depends. There are multiple factors involved in the amount of time your home inspectors will need to properly assess the condition of the property. Read below to find out what those factors are so you can have an idea of what to expect for your own appointment.

Size

The size of the home generally affects the length of time required for a home inspection service. Larger homes typically take longer to inspect than smaller homes due to the increased number of rooms and areas that need to be checked.

Location

If the property is located in a remote area, the inspector may need to allow extra time for travel. In general, it is best to schedule a home inspection service during good weather conditions and when there is plenty of daylight available.

Weather Conditions

The local climate can also affect the amount of time required for a home inspection service. For example, if the property is located in an area that experiences severe weather conditions, such as hurricanes or tornadoes, the inspector may need to spend more time checking for damage.

Age

Older homes or those in poor condition may require more time to inspect thoroughly. Properties that are more than 50 years old or in need of major repairs are likely to take longer to inspect than newer properties.
