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!

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.

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.

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!

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!

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.

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!

What Causes Air in Water Pipes?

As a homeowner, you have many responsibilities to ensure everything in your house is in place and working well. Unfortunately, homeowners encounter so many problems every year, including air in water pipes. Not only does this result in air bubbles and low water pressure, but you will see the pipes getting damaged. So, to prevent this, we have to learn more about it. Throughout this article, we will go through the causes of air in your water pipes, how to remove it, why you should remove it, and how Atlanta Property Inspection can help. So, let’s start learning.

Causes of Air In Water Pipes

There can be three main causes of air in your water pipes. Let’s go over them in this section.

  1. For air to be in water pipes, it has to enter through a hole. If your pipes are old, they can have broken parts on them. Over time, the pipes wear down and result in holes.
  2. Another common reason for air to be in your water pipes is to have leaks in the pipework. If there are any leaks in the pipework, air can travel through it. This can cause pressure problems in your plumbing system and cause water flow issues.
  3. The last problem is temporary. If you recently had maintenance or a new pipeline installed, it is normal to have air trapped in the pipes. This problem is temporary and should disappear over time.

How to Remove Air From Your Water Pipes?

If you know you have air in your water pipes, you can try fixing it. Let’s see how:

  1. Turn off the main water supply. It should be located near your water heating system or basement.
  2. Turn on your faucets, flush your toilets, and run appliances that use water. This will help you push all the water in your plumbing system out and any air in the pipes.
  3. Wait until the water stops running and turn the water back on. Run it for 10 minutes. You should not see any air in the water. If you do, there is a problem with the pipes. Call a home inspection service to learn more.

Why Should You Remove Air From Water Pipes

Although air inside a water pipe is not known to cause damage to the pipes, it can be annoying over time. For example, you will constantly hear noise, come across weak flow of water and water pressure, inconsistent faucets, and many more. So, removing air will save you time and from the constant noise.
