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.

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!

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.

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!

Reasons Why You Need a New Construction Home Inspection

A home inspection is a very common service homeowners use. However, people assume they don’t need one for a new construction home. To inform everyone about this common misconception, we have gathered some information. Throughout this article, we will go through why it is necessary to get an inspection for new construction, the types of inspections needed, what inspectors look for, the downside of getting a home inspection, and how Atlanta Property Inspection can help.

Why Is It Necessary To Get An Inspection For A New Construction

If you want to purchase a new construction home, you may wonder why everyone says it is important to get an inspection before. Many homeowners forget to consider that even new buildings can have so many problems. That is why it is crucial to inspect a property before making a purchase. Sometimes, home inspectors find some major problems that will be very costly for the homeowner in the future. This allows the homeowner to contact the person selling the property about the issue or switch to another house they are interested in.

Types of Inspections Needed

There are three main types of inspections needed for all new properties. Let’s go over them in this section:

  1. Foundation Inspection: A foundation inspection starts before workers build and pour the foundation. The inspector ensures that all the processes are done correctly and following the calculations. In addition, the inspectors check that the anchors and footing are laid in proper distance.
  2. Framing Inspection: A framing inspection starts when the builders finish the frame. After the foundation is laid, the walls, the roof, and the windows are placed. In this stage, an inspector looks at the structural components and whether they are placed rightfully and tightly. In addition, they check that the utility and plumbing systems are installed correctly.
  3. Final Inspection: The final inspection is very similar to that of a normal home inspection after a house is completely done. The inspector ensures that all the systems are working properly, the home is safe, and in accordance with the code. They check that there is nothing that needs to be fixed.

What Do Inspectors Look For?

A trusted home inspector, during a normal inspection, will look for many features in the house. These features can change depending on the country, city, and specific location you live in. This type of inspection is called a final inspection. Let’s see what they look for:

  • Are the roofs, gutters, and chimneys properly placed and not damaged?
  • Does the foundation and basement have any problems, and do they contain mold?
  • Are the electrical systems and conductors properly placed, and do they pose any threat to the environment?
  • Is the door working properly, and are there large spaces between the walls and windows?
  • Are the toilets, sinks, and plumbing systems correctly working without any leaks?

Is There a Downside of Getting a Home Inspection

So far, we have talked about the advantages of getting a home inspection in Roswell. You may be wondering if there are any disadvantages. The answer is not really. The only downside of getting an inspection is the cost. Although the initial expense of hiring a home inspector isn’t large, it can result in spending some additional money. However, the value that the inspection will provide will allow you to prevent further costs in the future.
