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.

The inspector was really thorough and was patient in explaining to me what he was observing. He showed me where the shutoff valve was for the water and gave recommendations on various things. The report that was provided made sense and pictures were taken of some things that were found. The inspector was also very personable which put me at ease about asking questions. Thank you, Alex and Atlanta Property Inspections!

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!

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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 You Can Read A Home Inspection Report

If you are looking to sell or buy a house, a home inspection is crucial. However, some still don’t understand why smart people get their home inspection as soon as possible. In this article, we will go through the major reasons why people get their home inspection, different types of inspection, and why Atlanta Property Inspection is here to tell you all this information.

Main Purposes of a Home Inspection

There are so many purposes on why one should get a home inspection. Firstly, the value of something is determined based on the condition of that item. While a home inspection service can’t tell you the value of the house, it can tell you about the conditions of items in detail. Second, if you are the buyer, getting a home inspection is a must for you. Many people who have a variety of problems in their house get them because they didn’t want to give the money for a home inspection. With early detection of these problems, however, you may take a different approach to things. Lastly, if you are the seller, having a home inspection can help detect the problems in your house. If you decide to avoid these problems and try to sell the house, it may lead to some serious issues with the buyer. So, have your home inspection and fix those problems so that you can easily sell your house without any problems.

What is a Pre-Purchase Inspection?

A pre-purchase inspection is mainly used by real estate agents. The point is to point out red flags on the property. This helps you see the value of your property and learn more about the possible problems without putting a price on the market. With these in mind, you sit down with a realtor and talk about the best price that would work for you.

Things Included in a Home Inspection

Before having a home inspection, know the places that he would look at. If there is a particular place that we haven’t covered that you want to get checked, then you may have to pay additional fees to hire a different inspector. Some of these places include the condition of the roof, insulation, and ventilation, the general exterior parts of the house, the condition of the house’s structure, the water main system, the wiring system, the plumbing system, and the HVAC system, and the windows and doors.

Main Points to Read a Report Easier

Firstly, be next to the home inspector on the day of the inspection. Not only would you convince him to check every detail of the house, but you would ask any questions that may come across your mind throughout the inspection. Secondly, don’t forget to read the summary page. If the report is too long and you don’t want to read it, read the summary page to see any of the major problems of the house and the photos that the inspector took. If you are working with a realtor, allow him/her to read the summary and see the photos too.
