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 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 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!

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!

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.

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.

What Do Home Inspectors Look For?

Homebuyers and sellers both need to ensure that the property that is on the market is safe. The party that will purchase the house will need to know that their investment is secure and well worth the price. Likewise, sellers will want to avoid liability and legal issues surrounding selling a property with safety hazards and code violations. The best way to determine the well-being of the property is to invest in professional home inspection services. The team at Atlanta Property Inspections offers reliable services for local clients. Whether you need an urgent mold detection service for your existing family home or you’re a real estate professional who wants to ensure a successful transaction, our home inspectors are always ready to help. Are you ready to invest in a home inspection but aren’t quite sure what the home inspectors will be looking for? Here is a list of the most common problems that the inspection team will be investigating and why.

Roof Issues

The roof is very much out of sight for property owners because of its high elevation. Things can look picture perfect from the curb, but there could still be serious flaws in difficult to view areas. Broken tiles, missing shingles, or improperly sealed roof vents could leave your home susceptible to water damage from rain as well as invite pests. For this reason, a home inspection will often emphasize the condition of the roof. They will check for signs of damage or weak materials and provide a report to indicate any areas of potential leaks around skylights, gutters, chimney flashing, or areas of roof damage.

Signs of Water Damage

While a bad roof can be a leading cause of water damage, there are many other ways that a property can be vulnerable to excess water. An unsealed toilet base, corroding water heater tank, leaky kitchen sink, or hidden underground sewer line damage can all contribute to water damage. Since prolonged exposure to moisture can also lead to toxic mold growth and other hazards, it’s important that property owners are aware of areas of concern.

Foundation Problems

A cracked or uneven foundation can cause a lot of issues in any property, such as gaps between flooring and walls, uneven wood framing, and structural risks. Fixing a broken foundation slab can be costly, so it’s very important for buyers to know the condition of the foundation before moving in. Since the foundation can be challenging to inspect due to its location under the home, it is good to have professional home inspectors who will have the training and equipment needed to check for the appropriate warning signs.
