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!

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!

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.

Dustin was very knowledgeable and friendly and made my client feel confident in his explanations.  He was quick to point out the positives of the home he was inspecting.  His report was delivered within 18 hours of the inspection and had plenty of photos and very easy explanations in laymen's terms. I highly recommend Atlanta Property Inspections.

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.

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.

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.

If you have an old house, then you may know that there are so many parts that are different from modern houses. Some of these can be better, while others can be harmful. Asbestos is one of these toxic substances that have to be removed. However, many homeowners don’t know this mineral. So, throughout this article, we will go through what asbestos is, how to identify it in your house, how this mineral can impact your health, ways to safely remove it, and how Atlanta Property Inspection can help. So, let’s see more about this interesting material in our house.

What is Asbestos and Why is It Used in My House?

When houses were built around the 1980s, many construction companies used asbestos in floors, ceilings, and many other parts of the house. Asbestos is a natural mineral, but unfortunately, it is carcinogenic. It is an effective insulator, and back then, people didn’t know it was harmful, so they used it in so many different parts. If your house is old, chances are, you may also have asbestos-containing parts in your home, and they need to be removed immediately.

How Can You Identify Asbestos?

We recommend that you do not try to identify the asbestos-containing part of the house by yourself. If there are any parts of your house that contain this mineral, you may damage it, causing it to show its carcinogenic effect. To see if you have any, you can find a professional inspection service that checks the parts of the house that may have this. If there is, they will warn you about this, and then you can take further action.

The Impacts of Asbestos on Your Health

As we said in the previous sections, asbestos is carcinogenic. This means that over a long period, they can lead to lung disease and cause cancer. Usually, unless a part of the house containing this mineral is not damaged, they do not cause significant damage. However, over the years, most of them become ruptured by themselves, causing these minerals to impact your health negatively.

How to Safely Remove Asbestos From Your House?

Again, like the way a person shouldn’t try to remove asbestos by themselves, they shouldn’t try to remove it as well. Any wrong action can result in significantly more significant damage to both your health and your house. So, if you have contacted an inspection service near you and they identified this mineral in your house, then contact an asbestos removalist to make your home safer today.
