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.

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 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.

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!

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!

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 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!

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.

What Products Contain Asbestos?

If you live in an older house and don’t know the materials of some of the most common products, you might be in danger. A lot of homeowners don’t know about asbestos. So, to inform them, we have gathered some information. Throughout this article, we will go through what asbestos is and why it's harmful, a list of products containing it, the home inspector’s role, and how Atlanta Property Inspection can help.

What is Asbestos & Why is it Harmful?

Asbestos was used in many items during the 20th century. It was especially used from the 1930s to 1970s to add strength and durability to the products they were in. The main harm asbestos provides lies in the fibrous and tiny fibers that humans and animals can easily breathe in and have trapped in the lungs. This has resulted in many individuals developing cancers in their larynx, lungs, and ovaries. Unfortunately, some households still contain this material, and identifying them is crucial. Let’s go over a list of products that can contain asbestos.

List of Products Containing Asbestos

  1. Adhesives: Many adhesives used contain asbestos, like construction tapes and mastic, to add durability.
  2. Cement: Cement must be strong and durable to withstand corrosion. So, these items also contained it
  3. Tiles: Asbestos was also used for tiles
  4. Insulation: This material is also used for insulation materials
  5. Ceiling Products: To add heat resistance and durability, ceiling products also contain it.
  6. Vinyls: If you own a lot of vinyls, check what they are made from
  7. Roof Shingles: Shingles provide strength and durability to the roofs.
  8. Spray Coatings: One of the most dangerous materials is spray coatings as they contain a high number of it
  9. Ductwork Connectors: Ductwork connectors are another problem related to asbestos.
  10. Drywall Products: Drywall products are something we can come in contact with every day.
  11. Main Construction Materials: Some of the most common main construction materials are made from it.
  12. Roofing Felt: Roofing felts are an additional layer of protection for roofs.

Home Inspector’s Role In Asbestos

Did you know that if you would like to know whether your house contains a lot of asbestos, you can test it? Home inspectors can use special equipment to check for products in your house that contain asbestos, allowing you to get it removed and providing a safe environment for yourself. A competent home inspection service doesn’t directly check the location of asbestos in a home. However, if you call the service and ask for them to only check if there is that material, they will surely come and look around to see if there is any increase in it that can damage your health.
