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!

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.

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.

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!

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 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.

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.

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.

How Often Should You Perform a Preventive Termite Inspection?

Invasion of bugs is indeed extremely irritating, but termite invasion adds a whole different dimension to the discomfort.  That is because termites can destroy houses. After all, they eat wood and products of wood, the foundation of your house. They cause damage to the main structural wood of the house as well as windows and doors, not to mention the wood furniture you may have. In addition to structural damage, they disrupt the appearance of ceiling, floors, paint, and wallpaper.

Cost Of Termites

Did you know that a homeowner spends an average of $3,000 to repair the damage termites create? It’s not only the money, taking care of the problems termites create can disturb your daily routine. You will spend extra time to find and hire professionals. After hiring, you may need to move from the house for a certain amount of time until termites are taken care of and then move back. In some cases, damages created by termites are so severe that doorframes must be replaced; walls and ceilings must be rebuilt.

What is Termite Inspection?

Spending this money, effort, and time on treating termite damage is avoidable by termite inspections. With many other things to take care of, tenants or homeowners can forget about termite inspection, but they aren’t simple things one can overlook. You wouldn’t know if your house has the risk of having termites, only termite inspectors would know. Termite inspectors are aware of the key places for possible termite invasion and will check these areas. They will check both indoors and outdoors for possible signs and the whole inspection process is most likely going to take about an hour. At the end of the hour, inspectors will tell you about the presence of termites in your house.

Key Areas Inspectors Focus On

Inspectors are most likely going to focus on a couple of areas when they are looking for termites such as bedrooms, closets, attic as well as toilets. They will try to focus on areas with wooden structures, but they will also look for leaking pipes since they can cause moist-damaged wood. It is possible that they don’t find active termite inspection but an underground termite infestation. For both cases, they are going to tell you your options and the next steps you should take to prevent a larger and more damaging infestation.

Make Sure Your Home is Termite-Free!

A termite inspection is also becoming a part of the home-buying process nowadays. Most companies require a termite inspection to know if the property has been damaged and require treatment if the termite infestation is present. So, it can even affect your home buying or selling process. To avoid the large cost of termite infestation, schedule a termite inspection with Atlanta Property Inspections. It is possible to stop termite infestation if the early preventive inspection is made and proper treatment is done. Dealing with termites is inconvenient and your money, effort and time isn’t worth it. Make sure to schedule your preventive termite inspection for a healthy home environment.
