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.

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.

Jeremy was the best to work with! He was on time,  very thorough in his explanations of his findings, and took time with my clients to make sure he answered all of their questions. He was detailed, and provided follow up when we needed additional questions answered. He went above and beyond! Best, quality, customer service I’ve seen in a long time! I’ll recommend him and Atlanta Property Inspections every time!

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!

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!

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!

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!

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.

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!

Testing Your Home for Radon

About every one in four Americans is at risk of having rising radon levels in their houses. This is a major number and can cause significant damage. However, not many people know about this in their houses. So, we have decided to end this. Throughout this article, we will go through what radon is, the reasons to test for radon in your house such as health hazards, how common it is, how it can affect someone, the price for testing, possible future costs, how easy it is to fix it, and how Atlanta Property Inspection can help. So, let’s start.

What is Radon?

Radon is a radioactive gas known to cause lung cancer among many people. It doesn’t have a color or smell, so it is hard to detect it in your house without professional equipment. This gas enters your house through the decay of uranium in the ground that moves up into the house.

Health Hazards

As we said in the previous section, radon causes health hazards, but how? Radon is inhaled, and when it is, it releases radiation. And this radiation causes damage to the DNA in the cells of the lung tissues. As time passes, this causes genetic mutations leading to lung cancer.

How Common Is It?

Radon is a very common problem that not many people know. However, it is a common reason for some of the worst lung problems. 1 in 6 deaths of lung cancer is attributed to radon in Canada.

How Can It Affect Someone?

Getting lung cancer isn’t just from using too much tobacco. It can be from your house as well. Not taking early precautions will make you susceptible to getting diseases early in your life and can ruin your motivation.

Price For Testing

Radon testing is more affordable than you think. Not only will this test allow you to take precautions, but you can also save yourself from major health hazards in the future.

Potential Future Costs

If you don’t take precautions, later on, you will be forced to change your house immediately. You can’t sell it easily due to the high levels of radon. You may need to constantly check in with your doctor to see if there are any problems with your health.

How Easy Is It To Fix It?

All you need to avoid all the problems related to this gas is to install a radon reduction system. This takes less than a day and is cheap compared to the value it provides. However, you would need a trustworthy home inspection service to check if you have radon in your house.
