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.

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!

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 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.

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!

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!

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.

Tiles

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.

Do You Suspect You Have A Pool Leak?

We can help you detect a leak and examine your pool during a home inspection process. We can also guide you to the professionals of pool care.
