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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

Inspecting the Roof

The roof is essential to our house, protecting us from rain, snow, sun, and many other things. So, it is important for us to regularly check roofs to ensure there are no leaks or any other problems that can negatively impact the daily work of the house. Knowing that roof inspection is a crucial service that allows people to be more comfortable in their houses, so we gathered this article for you. Throughout this article, we will go through four inspection methods you can perform: looking for algae, and moss, checking for old or damaged shingles, inspecting the roof closely, and investigating the attic, and how Atlanta Property Inspection can help. So, let’s start learning.

Looking For Algae and Moss

The first way to check your roof starts by checking the ground. Walk around the house and check to see if your roof has leaves or other forms of blockage in there. If there is, and you can see it, make sure to clear it. There can be moisture buildup in the blockage which can impact the structure of the roof. The moisture can even cause moss known to soak water easily, which will ruin your roof. If you see that you have moss buildup, apply moss killer and brush those parts with a broom.

Checking for Missing Or Damaged Shingles

The next step we encourage people to do is to get a ladder and look at the shingles on their roofs. Check to see if there are any missing or damaged parts. Shingles are a very important part of the roof. They prevent the roof from leaking, and without them, you would easily feel the wind whenever it blows on the roof.

Inspecting the Roof Closely

While you are already on a ladder, we recommend you do a general check of the place as well. Look at the chimney, vent pipes, and dormers. If you don’t see anything unusual, then skip to the next section. If you don’t know the usual looks of these places, then call a roof inspection service today.

Investigating the Attic

Lastly, if you have one, check your attic. After heavy rain, there can be signs of water leakage in the roof. If you see that there are any signs of leaks or water in the group of your attic, immediately call an experienced home inspection service today to get your roof inspection.
