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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Tips to Detect Swimming Pool Leak

Pool leaks are the nightmares of every homeowner. Besides the obvious waste of water, they can cause great pool damage and even cause structural problems if ignored. Additionally, the leak will show up on your water bills very annoyingly. As a homeowner, if you are suspicious of a pool leak, we will go over how you can identify them in this article.

Make Sure It’s Not Only Evaporation

The first thing to check for is evaporation. It’s only natural for a certain amount of water to evaporate over time. However, if more than half of the water is somehow "evaporating," this isn’t due to physics laws and certainly is related to a leak.

Water Bills

If you don’t notice any change in the water levels, this can be due to the automatic fill systems of the pool. They will quickly fill the pool when the water is lost, so you may not notice any abnormal evaporation sign. However, the leak evidence will certainly show up on your water bills. So, if you have increasing water bill costs, this is a big finding.


Leak water will get under the tiles and will cause them to become unsettled and can even lead to cracks or falls. So, if you notice abnormally loose tiles or cracks on the tiles, this indicates a possible leak.

Abnormal Grass Growth

Abnormal grass growth around the pool area or even algae growth also indicates a leak.

Bucket Test

The most certain way to know if your pool leaks is by performing the bucket test. For this, you can get a bucket and fill it with water. Put the bucket on the step of your pool and ensure the water level inside and outside the bucket is the same. After this, mark the level inside and outside the bucket and wait one day. Later, compare the level of lost water. If the levels are the same, most likely only evaporation is happening. If the pool loses more water, then a leak is happening.

Dye Test

After ensuring that there is a leak, you may want to locate the leak. You can use food coloring. Go to the plumbing fixtures and put some food coloring somewhere near them. The coloring will go to the area of the leak. Getting goggles to see the route of the dye in a clear manner is a good option.
