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’ll recommend him and Atlanta Property Inspections every time!

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

Ice dams are a common problem homeowners face. They cause the house to be damaged and the property to lose value. Preventing ice dams is easy and possible; however, many homeowners don't know their causes and prevention methods. To inform everyone, we gathered some information. Throughout this article, we will go over why ice dams are considered bad, their causes, ways to prevent them, and how Atlanta Property Inspection can help. Let’s start.

Why Are Ice Dams Considered Bad?

You have probably heard many times that dams harm a house. This is mainly because dams cause shingles to loosen and gutter to tear off. In the end, all the snow and water will be poured into your house. You can expect peeled paint, stained ceilings, and mold growth with water in your house. Let’s learn more about their causes and prevention in the following sections.

What Causes Ice Dams

There are several main causes of ice dams. Let’s go over them:

  • Air leakage: One of the main causes of air leakage. If a lot of air is transported, this will warn the attic and cause melting.
  • Thermal bridging through the walls: If you have an older house, ice dams can be caused by poor insulation. These mostly occur in places where the roof and walls meet. When heat is transferred, it melts the snow and causes the water to leak inside the house.
  • Heat-causing lights: If you have a lot of lights and other equipment that cause heat, air leaks will worsen. The heat will pass through the bulbs and melt the snow.

How to Prevent Ice Dams

  • Thankfully, ice dams have solutions. Let’s go over some ways you can prevent them fast:
  • Freezing the water: If you decide to shovel or throw in salts, this will cause big damage to the roof and will be bad for you. Instead, to prevent the water from leaking, you can freeze it and quickly solve the problem.
  • Rake the dam: If you are in a situation where you have to act quickly, we suggest you rake the dam. Pull the snow off the roof and let the water run down. You will quickly realize that it will cause the temperature to change.
  • Long-term solution: If you would like to get rid of this problem permanently, you must have home inspectors inspect and identify the cause of the problem. Based on their report, they will refer you to a professional service that will allow you to live an ice dam problem-free life.
