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.

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.

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!

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.

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 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!

Home is our comfort zone, and we wouldn’t want anything to happen to it. However, despite our wants, our houses still face major problems, most of which can come from water intrusions. Despite this, we realize that few people know what water intrusions are and the precautions to take against them. So, that’s why throughout this article, we will go through what water intrusions are, what causes them, what you should do against them, and how Atlanta Property Inspection can help. So, let’s get started.

What are Water Intrusions?

Water intrusions are when water enters a building and causes damage. There are many forms of damage that we can see; some of them include molds or ceiling damage. However, let’s look at what causes these problems in our buildings.

What Causes Water Intrusions?

Many things can cause water intrusions. In this section, let’s list a few of them here. This way, you can see if any unusual things are happening in these places.

  • Roofs - roofs age, and they don’t have the same functionality as they did before. So, they start water to be entered from the places damaged.
  • Pipes - pipes are the leading cause of water intrusions. If a pipe starts leaking inside or outside a house, it will cause your water pressure to be messed up and your water flows to malfunction.
  • Basement flooding - this is the worst a homeowner can face. You would have to check in constantly to see whether there is anything unusual in the basement. If there is flooding, this can damage the infrastructure of the house if action is not immediately taken.

What Should I Do Against Water Intrusions?

We have to be cautious of the potential damages that can be caused by intrusions. So, everyone must take precautions. So what should you do? Well, it is really simple. First, ensure that your property and flood insurance are renewed properly monthly. Ensure you know basic skills like turning off the main valve in case of an emergency. Lastly, move whatever you think may be important to you into a place away from a location with a water location and put it in a safe place. There are so many more, but did you know that you can prevent water intrusions with regular home inspections to your house?
