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!

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.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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

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!

What Do Radon Levels Mean?

When radioactive elements like thorium, uranium, or radium start decaying in various parts of the earth, radon (a gas) will be produced. Unfortunately, by nature, radon is a radioactive gas and is found in the atmosphere at trace levels. Most of the time, radon isn’t very harmful outdoors, however, when it enters to various buildings like homes, workplaces, schools, and markets, it gets stuck, and when this happens, people inside are constantly exposed to radon. This situation is quite risky because, after smoking, radon is the second most common cause of lung cancer incidences and is predicted to be the cause of death for about 21,000 people in the United States every year. Unfortunately, radon is odorless and colorless, so many people don’t know that they are regularly exposed to radon. Regular testing is the only way to ensure you are exposed to radon.

How To Test Radon?

To test the radon levels in your house, you can either get a test kit from a store or hire professional home inspectors for radon testing. If you choose to do it on your own, you have two options: short-term kits and long-term kits. Usually, short-term kits take between 2-90 days, and long-term ones take longer. Naturally, a long-term kit will be more reliable.

Interpreting Your Results

More than 4.0 pCi/L

This level indicates your home is not a safe place to live in because the radon amount is very high. To treat this condition, you can hire a professional home inspection company to learn more about how to solve this problem.

2.7 to 4.0 pCi/L

This level isn’t as dangerous as the previous one we mentioned. However, it is still wise to receive professional advice and install a radon mitigation device. 

2.7 or less pCi/L

The amount of radon found in the everyday environment is about 0.4 pCi/L. So, this radon level usually poses no risks and is considered low.

Here are some of the ways you can make your home a safer place to live by minimizing radon exposure.

  • If members of your household are smoking, it will be a good idea to quit because radon, combined with the effects of smoke, will make your house a potential place for lung cancer.
  • Make sure there’s proper airflow inside your house. Frequently open windows and turn on ceiling fans.
  • If you have any openings in certain parts of your house, like walls, ceilings, or floor, fill them.
  • If you are buying a new house, ask about installed devices that protect from radon.
