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 would like to recommend Brandon for his excellent job during the inspection. He is very professional, thorough and is an expert in his field. I enjoyed his partnership during inspection, the knowledge he shared of the risks of certain issues was incredible. I am very glad that he inspected the house for us and wishing him more success in future.

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!

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!

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, 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!

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.

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!

Tips for Maintaining Your Driveway

Driveways are some of the most used areas in the house. Many homeowners don’t pay attention to them, but maintaining your driveway can extend its life and make it look more aesthetic. So, it is a long-term investment for many. However, many homeowners don’t know much about maintaining their driveways. So, to inform everyone, we gathered some information. Throughout this article, we will review some of the most common tips for maintaining your driveway and how Atlanta Property Inspections can help. So, let’s get started.

Cleaning Your Driveway Regularly

One of the most crucial for maintaining a driveway is cleaning it regularly. Whenever you have free time and get the chance, sweep away any dirt, leaves, debris, rocks, and other items from scratching or harming the surface. Use a pressure washer and remove any dirt or stains occasionally. If there are stains that are not leaving, you can use concrete cleaners to get rid of them permanently.

Repairing Any Potholes or Cracks

Cracks or potholes can occur on driveways. The most important thing a homeowner can do is fix them as soon as possible. This will allow them to prevent any extended or further damage to the driveway. You can use things like concrete crack fillers for minor cracks. If there is larger damage, like potholes, it may require further assistance. Call Atlanta Property Inspection to learn more.

Preventing Any Cracks

Cracks can happen to driveways for many reasons. Preventing cracks is an important thing that a homeowner can do. Avoid constantly parking heavy vehicles in the same spot. This can cause stress on the sidewalks and lead to cracks.

Sealing the Driveway

One of the best ways to protect your driveway from chemicals and moisture is to apply a concrete sealer. The sealing will help prevent cracks and stains from penetrating. Doing this will require professional help and patience.

Paying Attention to Tree Roots

Tree roots can cause the concrete driveway to crack or uplift. To prevent tree roots from growing beneath the surface, consider installing root barriers to prevent root intrusion. Call a home inspection service to learn where to install root barriers today.

Avoid The Constant Use of Chemicals

One of the most common uses of chemicals is salt cement to melt snow. However, this chemical can simply cause the surface to crack, so instead of salting, use a shovel to remove the snow.

Minimizing Water On The Driveway

If there is too much snow or water on the surface of the driveway, it can penetrate the surface. So, if the water accumulates in your driveway, you might have to redesign it to make sure it empties into the yard and doesn’t cause penetrations on the driveway.

Cut Grass Occasionally & Plow Carefully

Cut the grass in your yard and ensure it doesn’t extend into your driveway. Also, raise the blade of your plow to ensure it doesn’t damage the driveway surface.
