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.

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.

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!

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.

What Home Inspectors Look for in a Kitchen

When home inspectors go through the details of your property, they will likely spend quite a bit of time in the kitchen. A lot of homeowners might be confused by this and wonder what the big deal is. Well, the truth is that the kitchen is a central part of the everyday life of your family, and it’s essential that all of the elements of your kitchen will be as safe and efficient as possible. At Atlanta Property Inspections, we provide professional inspection services for homeowners and businesses in Atlanta, Georgia, and surrounding metro area communities. If you’ve been considering making an investment in a reliable home inspection, then give us a call and find out what our experienced home inspectors can do for your house.

Why Are Kitchens Included in Professional Home Inspections?

Kitchens contain the largest number of appliances in the home. Additionally, a successful kitchen also relies on having a well-functioning plumbing system. Therefore, your electrical outlets, plumbing fixtures, pipes, and essential appliances will be a vital part of your overall inspection service.

Which Areas of the Kitchen Do Home Inspectors Pay Attention To?

The inspector will pay close attention to a lot of different areas of your kitchen in order to determine the condition of the property; this may include:

  • Countertops
  • Cabinets
  • Kitchen Sink
  • Plumbing Hardware
  • Refridgerator
  • Oven
  • Stove
  • Built-in Microwave
  • Dishwasher
  • Exhaust System or Range Hood
  • Electrical Outlets and Wiring
  • Lighting System
  • As Well as the Overall Safety of the Walls, Floor, Ceiling and Similar Structures

Be aware of these items when preparing for your inspection.

What Do Home Inspectors NOT Do?

While it’s important to know what to expect from your home inspection, it’s also essential that property owners understand what the inspectors won’t be doing. This will help you stay prepared for the appointment and avoid disappointment or miscommunication. For example, inspectors will often avoid moving appliances or furniture around to inspect if they are made inaccessible. Likewise, if you have any locks or codes needed to get inside an area of your pantry or for instance, it might not be inspected. Another important consideration is the fact that the inspector will not be able to check for air quality, code compliance confirmation, asbestos or lead exposure, and other specialized tests. If you’re unsure whether a specific concern of yours will be addressed during the inspection, then feel free to speak with your inspector before the appointment begins.
