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 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!

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!

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!

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!

Thorough knowledge of items addressed in report. Home inspector was able to communicate any issues found with buyer and help explain the different items and their severity.

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.

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!

What Should a Buyer Do During the Home Inspection?

As a buyer, getting a home inspection can provide so many benefits. If you have planned a home inspection, you must know what to do during the process. To guide you through these complicated steps, we have gathered some information. Throughout this article, we will go through the tips for buyers to get a clear home inspection, the parts of the house that are checked, and how Atlanta Property Inspection is checked.

Tips For Buyers to Get A Clear Home Inspection

As a buyer, to get a clear report on the inspection of your potentially new house, you must make sure to follow a few tips. Let’s go over them in this section:

  1. Ensure all utilities are turned on and the environment is suitable for the inspector to easily reach and have clear access to the necessary systems. These systems include but are not limited to water heaters, electrical outlets, AC units, and many more.
  2. Have a checklist of where the inspector has inspected. Taking notes in the process will allow you to review them later on and understand if the house has any significant issues. You can also ask for the inspector to check a few other systems they may have missed in the house.
  3. Listen to the inspector’s feedback. It is recommended for homeowners to ask any questions that they may have in their mind during a home inspection. An inspector will look to see if any structural issues need repairing in the future and provide feedback to potential homeowners.
  4. Before any inspection, arrive on time and be ready to be given feedback. You can also ask questions about the maintenance of your house's systems.

What Part of the House Is Checked?

The places that are checked in a house can vary according to state laws or the inspection company. However, in this section, we will go over some common systems that many home inspectors check.

  • Basement: The basement is checked to see if any moisture causes mold growth and whether the sump pump works properly.
  • Bathrooms: Bathrooms are checked to see if toilets are flushed properly and showers are drained smoothly.
  • Kitchen: Do the garbage disposal and exhaust fan vents work?
  • Electrical Systems: Is the wiring in good condition? Do all the lights in all rooms work properly, and are there any exposed electrical splices? These are some common questions to ask during electrical system inspection.
  • Heating and Cooling Systems: The AC unit is checked to ensure it operates well and has clean filters.
  • Plumbing System: The plumbing system is checked to see if visible pipes have any damage and if the water pressure is within the normal range.
