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, 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.

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!

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.

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.

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!

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.

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!

How Much Does a Commercial Building Inspection Cost?

Before buying a commercial property, buyers and owners alike should think carefully about the need for a commercial property inspection. For the most part, property inspections involve more intricate elements that call for specialized knowledge, in contrast to residential inspections, which require a larger space most of the time. A commercial property inspection is a valuable investment that can save you money in the long run. The cost of an inspection will depend on many factors, and in this article, we will discuss the importance of commercial property inspections, what kinds of factors influence prices, and what you can expect cost-wise.

Credentials

For home inspectors, having certain certifications is an important sign that shows the level of professionalism, since these organizations require dedication to maintaining professional standards. Before you hire a home inspector, make sure to check the inspector's credentials and inquire about their training and educational history. Not all states require ASHI certification, but being ASHI certified is certainly crucial for a home inspector. These inspectors are subject to certain criteria set by society, including passing a number of exams and fulfilling requirements. In order to receive the designation of "ASHI Certified Inspector," an inspector must complete over 250 expert home inspections, demonstrating their depth of knowledge in the field.

Percentage of the Listing Price

Taking a percentage of the sale price is how some inspectors prefer to measure the cost. This pricing structure has been used especially for large-scale commercial inspection projects. After deducting a portion from the building's sale price, the inspector will hire additional specialists and inspectors to assist them in completing the project.

Time-Based Pricing

Business inspectors also estimate the inspection price based on the estimated time of completion for the inspection team. The inspector will often strive for an average hourly rate, knowing the worth of his services. Usually, the inspection will take about 8–9 hours, so the hourly cost will be multiplied by that, but of course, the amount of time it takes for the inspection to be completed depends on the size of the building.

Area-Based Pricing

The price or cost based on the building's size is the most common approach. This is said to be the easiest and most logical approach. First, the home inspector defines the cost per square foot. Within that cost, there might be a number of distinct subgroups, such as office space, warehouse space, manufacturing facilities, auditorium space, and any other kind of structure. 

What Can You Expect?

To give you an idea of what the prices look like, we can say that:

  • Small to Medium-Sized Properties: Pricing usually varies from $500 to $2,500 for basic inspections or smaller commercial properties.
  • Medium- to Large-Sized Properties: These may require more thorough inspections, which could result in expenses of up to $10,000.

Relible Home Inspection Services

In summary, a thorough commercial building inspection guarantees the property's longevity, usability, and safety. To detect possible problems early on, it is essential to use the experience of a home inspector who is knowledgeable in home inspection procedures. By taking preventive measures, you can protect your investment and feel secure in the knowledge that the building complies with all applicable laws and regulations. You may rely on qualified home inspectors at Atlanta Property Inspection for all of your property inspection needs.
