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.

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!

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!

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.

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.

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 is VERY Detailed Oriented and found items and suggestions on the home that I would have never thought of, the report provided very good insight on how to move forward with the sale of the home!  The staff at API was great to work with!

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!

Top 10 Signs You May Need a New Roof

Your roof is unfortunately exposed to every harsh element in your environment to protect you and your family. All year round, it deals with the sun, winds, snow, and rain. Naturally, over the years, it deteriorates and ages and as a result, it can tear and fall apart. To avoid property damage, it is best to make plans for routine maintenance of your roof. With these regular home inspections and maintenance, you will know what to repair or replace. In this article, we will go over signs that show you may need a new roof.


One of the most obvious signs that show your roof needs to be replaced is the leaks. That’s because it shows that the roofing materials took serious damage most likely due to bad weather. It is possible to fix very small leaks by calling professionals. However, most people don’t realize the leaks until the problem has gotten much bigger and at that point, you may need a new roof. Observe your house closely to see whether there are any leaks.

Older Roofs

The average lifespan of most roofs that are made up of asphalt shingles is 25 years. After that point, you can start to look for new roof materials. To see how old your roof is, you can look at the renovation records of the homes. Of course, the material of the shingles defines the lifespan too, it might be more or less than 25 years depending on the material.

Home Inspection

If you are going to buy a new house or preparing to sell one, most likely you will go through the process of home inspection. During the process, the roof will also be examined. When the home inspectors are examining the roof, they might discover some problems. If the problem is a major one, roof replacement will be a more permanent solution rather than trying to repair these problems all the time, which will be money and time-consuming.

Missing Shingles

Of course, the missing shingles on your roof are not good signs. It basically means that they are deteriorating easily and so coming off. The problem depends on the number of shingles that are missing too. If only a few are missing, it doesn’t mean you need to replace the whole roof as soon as possible.

Curled Shingles

Shingles with curled edges indicate significant deterioration. This is most likely because of harsh weather conditions.

Sagging Ceilings or A Roof

This is one of the strongest signs. Sagging of the ceiling or roof occurs as a result of structural damage. This condition will either need a very thorough repair or a whole roof replacement.

Improper Roof Installation

If the roof was installed in a wrong from the beginning, this will be the start of many problems. This also will directly affect the lifespan and safety of the roof. If the roof doesn’t seem safe, it must be replaced immediately.

Increased Bills

If you have a significantly higher cooling or heating bill, this indicates roof leaks and tiles with low quality.


Some people like moss in shady areas of their yards. However, if it’s on the roof, it can cause problems. Moss, mold, and fungi indicate trapped moisture. This can end up doing harm to your roof because it will cause sagging. If it’s covered in moss, roof replacement might be a good idea.

Water Damage

In addition to leaks, if obvious water damage is present inside the house, consider roof repair or replacement.

Seeing These Signs?

It is possible for you to see some of these signs on your roof. However, unless you are experienced in the issue, it would be hard for you to understand the degree of the damage and what to do next. For this, call the house inspectors of Atlanta Property Inspection. After thoroughly inspecting your roof, we will tell you whether you need repair or replacement and tell you about your options. There’s no need to stress because of your damaged roof now. Call us today to schedule your inspection!
