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!

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.

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!

My client used the company for their home inspection during their due diligence period. Jeremy and his partner were very kind and accommodating with answering questions. The report was very thorough and I like that they also note positive things about the homes in their report as well and not just what's wrong with the house. You can read the good and the bad.

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!

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!

Thorough knowledge of items addressed in report. Home inspector was able to communicate any issues found with buyer and help explain the different items and their severity.

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!

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 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.
