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!

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!

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!

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!

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.

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.

The 5 Most Common Home Inspection Issues

Buying a house isn’t just financially important, it is important because it is where most memories are built. Think about it. Where do most of your memories take place? For this reason, having a safe and problem-free home is important. Without a professional home inspection, your house may have the potential of facing serious problems that will ruin all your nice memories. Throughout this article, we will go through the 5 most common home inspection issues, some services, and how we can help.

Some Important Areas to Get Checked in Your House

Certain things must be checked to avoid any difficult future problems. One of them is grade sloping. Checking this part of the house will allow the person to understand whether or not a secret water issue will wait for the homeowner during a wet season. If this is left unnoticed, grade sloping can cause a wall to rot and mold to set up on it, causing really expensive repair issues. The second most common serious problems include faulty wiring. Most homebuyers try to check it themselves; however, they commonly miss it. If you have an older house, then it is even greater damage. The extensive cords may be exposed, leading to a really common problem of house fires. Although unless there is a physical action to wire it won’t cause a problem, if there is even a slight one without you noticing it, it can lead to the destruction of the whole house.

What More Could There Possibly Be?

Another serious part of a housing inspection is the roofing material. The roof is a really crucial part of the house because it is the main cause of water not going into the house. It is so easy to miss the point that not getting your roof checked may cause future problems. If a roof houses a problem, without revealing the place, the patchwork may be more than just a temporary relief. Water may seep inside and there may be extra expensive repair services needed.

Why Should I Get it Checked?

Most of the previous homeowners defer the maintenance to you. For most, that’s why they sell the house, to get out of the expenses. Open your eyes fully and be extra cautious about these things. No one wants to end up paying for a problem with used equipment especially if these can end up risking your health and happy memories. Avoid the risk and call us today.
