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, 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.

I have hired this company doing inspection on the property that I was planning to purchase in Georgia. I’ve live in California when this was done. Frank Cooper and his team did a great job of inspection and giving me with every details. I really appreciate the advice and the report. Thank you

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!

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.

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.

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!

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!

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.

Top 5 Tankless Water Heater Maintenance Tips

Tankless water systems are an important part of our house, which helps us to save energy by quickly heating the water. To make any items like this last longer, we must maintain them. However, only a few people know how. So, we decided to inform everyone. Throughout this article, we will go through tankless water heater maintenance tips you can follow, like sanitizing the inside of the water heater, cleaning the air filter, flushing the system, checking the water temperature, inspecting the venting system, and how Atlanta Property Inspection can help. Let’s learn.

Sanitizing The Water Heater

To fully maintain your water heater, we must keep it sanitized. Not only is it crucial to our health, but you will see a great increase in the water quality. This is because the minerals that run inside the heater build up, causing potentially significant long-term damage. Sanitizing the water heater once a month is more than enough and will be a very good choice.

Cleaning the Air Filter

Most tankless water systems use a heat exchanger, which helps regulate the water temperature faster. To work properly, this exchanger uses fresh air. However, just like with any filters, over time, the filters in these exchangers can collect dust and debris. This prevents it from effectively functioning. To change the filter, you must turn the power off, locate where the filter is, remove it with the use of a screwdriver, clean it gently by using vacuum cleaners or rinsing it with water, then reinstall it.

Flushing the System

Even if you regularly sanitize your water heater, some minor materials can still build up. This is when we flush the system. By flushing occasionally, we prevent mineral buildup from causing long-term damage. Let’s see how checking the water temperature can help in the next section.

Checking the Water Temperature

Checking the water temperature can be nice to understand if the water heater works properly. Turn on the hot side of the faucet. Check the water temperature. It shouldn’t pass anything above 120°F, or the heater might have a problem.

Inspecting the Venting System

Ventilation is important for tankless water heaters. If the venting system is blocked, you will see a significant decrease in the performance of the heater. The blockage in the ventilation can even result in major health problems. Cleaning the ventilation can be hard. So, call an inspection service to learn if you have a damaged or blocked venting system.
