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!

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

Thermal Camera Inspections

In the current house inspection process, thermal imaging has become an indispensable instrument that has completely changed the way homes are assessed for structural integrity, efficiency, and safety. Thermal imaging cameras pick up temperature differences by absorbing infrared radiation generated by objects. This allows them to identify hidden problems that the human eye might miss. With unmatched accuracy, home inspectors can now detect possible issues, including electrical malfunctions, inadequate insulation, and even pest infestations, thanks to this technology. As a non-invasive technique, thermal imaging speeds up the inspection process and improves the accuracy of home evaluations, enabling homeowners to make more informed decisions and guaranteeing the longevity and safety of their assets.

Identification of Hidden Mold and Moisture Spots

It is never pleasant to see mold growing around the house, and if it is neglected, it can soon become a health risk. However, dampness and mold typically appear in the house's darker corners, like laundry rooms and air ducts, where it often misses the eye. By using thermal technology, an inspector can search for potentially concealed mold patches throughout the house that are otherwise undetectable to the unaided eye. It is much simpler to address this issue once these places are identified.

Electrical System Examination

Thermal imaging in electrical systems aids in identifying components that are overheating, loose connections, and malfunctioning wiring. This reduces the need for lengthy repairs and puts out electrical fires.

Finding Heat Leaks

Find any heat leaks in structures or equipment to save a lot of money on heating and cooling expenses. Through the identification of heat-escaping regions, clients can take proactive measures to enhance energy efficiency by repairing insulation, sealing leaks, or replacing equipment.

Overall Building Check

The most crucial action that can be taken to ensure that the structure is secure, reliable, and compliant with building codes is a building check. It looks for potential concerns such as structural defects, electrical problems, and potential safety hazards. Frequent property inspections increase property value, prevent costly repairs, and improve safety in living and working environments.

Structural Integrity

Buildings must adhere to safety regulations, and routine inspections identify and address any potential weaknesses or damage in the structure to prevent harm and risk in the future.

Detection of Pests

Everyone detests the thought of having cockroaches and other unsavory little insects living inside of their house. Similar to moisture and mold, these different little pests and animals can all have their temperatures detected by an infrared image.

Looking For A Reliable Home Inspection Company?

Finally, because thermal imaging may detect issues that are not immediately apparent and ensure that buildings are secure and energy-efficient, it is a highly helpful tool for contemporary building inspections. With its ability to detect issues with power, water damage, and lost energy, thermal imaging helps to reduce hazards and provide preventative maintenance.
