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!

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!

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.

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!

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 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.

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!

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.

The Importance of Smoke Detectors in Your Home

Smoke detectors can save lives. However, many people consider this device to be useless in their houses. To inform them about the importance of these detectors, we gathered some information. Throughout this article, we will go through how smoke detectors can save you, the seven benefits of installing a smoke detector in your home, and how Atlanta Property Inspection can help.

How Can Smoke Detectors Save You?

One home fire-related injury occurs every 53 minutes. Fire hazards are common problems that every homeowner can face. Thankfully, modern technology allows us to have detectors that identify smoke and save lives. Smoke detectors can alert the residents inside a property of rising smoke and significantly reduce the chance of injury. If someone is worried about facing a fire, they should install smoke detectors in all the rooms and maintain them regularly. Make sure to change the batteries. Over 90% of houses in the U.S. have smoke detectors, but only 23% work because of dead batteries. So, if you want to provide a safe environment for your loved ones, install a smoke detector. Learn more about the benefits of these detectors by calling a home inspection service today.

7 Benefits of Installing a Smoke Detector in Your Home

  1. Early Detection: The primary goal of a smoke detector is to alert the residents in the presence of fire in its early stages. This is also its primary benefit. With early detection, you will have much time to protect your loved ones.
  2. Preventing Fast Spread of Fire: With early notification, you will also have the time to see whether the fire is escalating quickly and evacuate safely if needed.
  3. Identifying Fire Types: Advanced detectors can also identify whether the smoke is coming from burning fires or invisible flames, which also have the potential to harm residents.
  4. Protecting Your Family: Our loved ones are our priority. Install a smoke detector to help the children, elderly, friends, and family in case of an uncontrollable fire.
  5. Constant Monitoring: Fires can occur anytime during the day. If there is a sudden fire late at night, you might not be able to notice it immediately. However, these detectors work day and night to see if any smoke is inside.
  6. Easy Maintenance: There is little needed to install and maintain a smoke detector. Make sure to replace its batteries once a year and clean them to ensure they are reliable.
  7. Benefits It Provides With New Technology: With the new technology, these smoke detectors can now offer other features like carbon monoxide levels, phone alerts, and interconnected alarms to enhance safety. If you would like to learn whether your smoke detectors are working properly, contact Atlanta Property Inspection today.
