I have hired this company doing inspection on the property that I was planning to purchase in Georgia. I’ve live in California when this was done. Frank Cooper and his team did a great job of inspection and giving me with every details. I really appreciate the advice and the report. Thank you

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!

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 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!

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!

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.
