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.

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!

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!

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.

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!

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!

Dustin was absolutely amazing. He did such a thorough job and was super friendly and helpful in explaining everything to me as a first-time homeowner. Highly recommend this company! Very timely and professional throughout the entire process as well!

I called several companies for quotes, and I felt that Atlanta Property Inspections was the most welcoming!  Thereafter, I had a wonderful experience at the inspection. My inspector was thorough, kind, and willing to explain things and answer my questions on site.  He was very knowledgeable and very friendly.  I am glad I did not skip the inspection for this 950 square foot condo, and the review has been very helpful, during my due diligence period in evaluating this potential home.

Tips to Maintain Concrete Surfaces Around Your Home

Finding the key to maintaining concrete surfaces around your house is essential to improving their longevity and appearance. In this article, we will try to provide you with useful guidance designed for long-term concrete maintenance, which can vary from regular cleaning methods to preventative actions against cracks and stains. Concrete surfaces are all around us, and whether it's your patio, driveway, or foundation, protecting these surfaces is important both for structural integrity and aesthetic reasons. Keep reading to learn more.

Inspection

Inspect your concrete for chipping or cracks as you clean it off and get it ready for the winter. Problems with a concrete surface may spread quickly if the weather becomes chilly. Throughout the chilly months, a seemingly minor issue could become more problematic. Any flaws should be fixed as soon as possible to prevent further damage. In colder temperatures, water pooling may also result in an ice problem.

Right Cleaner

To get rid of debris, stains, and grime from concrete surfaces, use water and a light detergent. For more difficult-to-remove stains, use a stiff brush or power washer. It is crucial that you clean your internal concrete surfaces with specific cleaners, depending on where they are located. Concrete outside will usually tolerate a power washer, but concrete countertops will require a different type of cleaner. Polishes, sealants, or finishes are typically applied to indoor concrete. When you use harsh chemicals to clean, these chemicals can dissolve and harm the sealants and eventually harm the integrity of the concrete. So, before cleaning a surface, examine the cleaning product recommendations provided by the makers. If they're not specifically mentioned, just opt for classic soap and water.

Importance of Sealing

Concrete can be shielded from moisture and stains by applying a high-quality sealer every few years. Select a sealant that is appropriate for the particular application and local climate. Choose sealants made to last hard winters if you live in a colder area.

Protect from Moisture

You still want to keep your concrete dry and free from moisture damage even though a sealer will shield it from it. By its nature, concrete is porous and absorbs liquids like a sponge does. Over time, these liquids can lead to fissures in the concrete and shorten its lifespan.

Landscape

To avoid roots lifting or creating cracks in concrete, keep vegetation trimmed down and away from concrete surfaces. Cut back branches that overhang to stop storm-related debris from raining down and damaging property.

Reliable Home Inspection Services

In conclusion, we hope that homeowners who are concerned about maintaining the concrete integrity of their property find this article to be a useful resource.
