This was my first experience with Atlanta Property Inspections. Alex Sozonov was my inspector. Very oriented details and willing to explained all questions with professional knowledge. Report came into my email box late night. Clearly, it has been covered all details. Plus, show up on time.

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.

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!

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!

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.

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!

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 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!

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.

What Happens During a Well Water Inspection?

The advantages of owning a private well are numerous; mineral-rich water, fewer chemicals, better flavor, and reduced utility costs are just a few. However, compared to municipal water, wells require more upkeep and testing because every house’s well water is different. But you don’t need to be worried about this anymore because professionals at Atlanta Property Inspection are here to give you information on what well examinations look like so you can be safe and secure using the water.

How Often Do You Need Well Inspection?

It is recommended to receive a well inspection every year since the environment surrounding your well may have undetected changes that could affect the safety and quality of your water. If you are drinking this water, knowing that it’s free from the chemicals and microorganisms that can harm you is pretty valuable information. In addition to getting it annually checked, we recommend you call the professional for an inspection if your water has an odd taste or smell, if it’s blurry, or if you think something is wrong with it in general.

Components Of A Well Inspection

  • Flow Test- A flow test to understand the system's output should be conducted, in addition to checking the water level both before and during the pumping process and the pressure tank and pressure switch.
  • Testing For Bacteria- In addition, testing for the presence of coliform bacteria and nitrates, two common water pollutants, will be performed. It's crucial to wait for retests and safety certifications before using water that has been contaminated.
  • Well Casing- The well casing is the pipe that surrounds the well and prevents the surrounding soil from being contaminated by the water. Impurities are kept out of the well by the seals surrounding the well casing. The well casing and seals will be inspected as part of a well inspection to make sure they are in good shape.

How Long Does The Inspection Take?

Many people believe it will take so long to complete the inspection process or that it will take weeks before they receive the results. Well checks are completed much more quickly these days. A couple of hours is usually all it takes to finish an inspection. You don’t have to dedicate an entire day to it or miss a vacation day or work. The entire inspection procedure should not take longer than one or two hours.

How Much Does An Inspection Cost?

A professional inspector's checkup of a well will often cost you between $300 and $500. However, the cost and the kinds of water testing needed will vary among providers. If the water is tested in a lab, you may be expected to pay an additional fee. If you want, you can combine other inspections with the water inspections to save time and have a more thorough inspection of other systems in your house too.

Reliable Home Inspection In Your Area

In conclusion, a thorough water inspection is a crucial aspect of maintaining a safe and healthy water supply for your home. Ensuring your well water is free from contaminants and meets safety standards can protect your family's health. A thorough home inspection, including a detailed well water assessment by a professional, provides peace of mind and contributes to the overall safety and value of your property. Luckily, qualified home inspectors are ready to help you on your journey. Call us today to learn more about us and schedule your appointment.
