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.

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.

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.

WOW! I can't even make this story up. In this very crazy market (June 2021) it seemingly takes 2 week closing (sometimes with *0* days due diligence!) to purchase a home. Anyway, Frank came recommended by another very reputable inspector, and I was fortunate he came!! The home we were looking at for my mother was a 1975 build and within 1 hour of the inspector being there a FIRE from an electrical panel broke out! Frank contained the fire, and was SO calm, had his team address the matter, was in touch with the agent and homeowner. He said in over 20+ years of him inspecting homes nothing like this had ever happened. Anyway the inspection was VERY thorough and Frank handled all matters very professionally. We will be working with Frank and his team on any home inspections in the future. I highly recommend!

Thorough knowledge of items addressed in report. Home inspector was able to communicate any issues found with buyer and help explain the different items and their severity.

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!

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!

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!

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!

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.

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.
