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!

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!

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.

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!

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 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.

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!

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?
