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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

This was my first experience with Atlanta Property Inspections. Alex Sozonov was my inspector. Very oriented details and willing to explained all questions with professional knowledge. Report came into my email box late night. Clearly, it has been covered all details. Plus, show up on time.

What to Do if Your Home for Sale Suffers Water Damage

Moving your home is a stressful experience in itself. Unexpected situations such as a burst pipe or severe flooding can throw a wretched wrench in your plans. There is no reason to panic though. Your friends at Atlanta Property Inspections are ready to help. Our home inspectors will be by your side from beginning to end. We even help you file your insurance claim and protect you from getting lowballed. Continue reading for some tips on what to do about water damaged property. Call Atlanta Property Inspections to speak with a friendly representative or schedule a home inspection today. We are ready when you are.

Get to Safety

Water damage can be a result of a variety of things, including storms, burst pipes, or even faulty appliances. Water is not necessarily harmless though. Sewage backups from toilets can expose you to pathogens, bacteria, and disease. Worse, floodwater and water from burst pipes may be in contact with electrical wiring and could be carrying electrical currents. It is best to get to safety and call for professionals. You want to call a water damage restoration company as well as your insurance company. Calling Atlanta Property Inspections for a third-party assessment of the damage can save you from getting lowballed by the insurance company.

Document Damages

With safety at the top of your priority list, try to document as much of the damage as possible. Take photos and detailed videos as evidence. This will be valuable when filing your insurance claim. Again, be mindful not to put yourself in harms way just to take photos.

Eliminate the Threat

Emergency response teams and the damage restoration company will work to find the root cause of the water damage and contain the damage. For instance, they will likely turn off the electricity, gas line, and water supply. Once the threat is eliminated, you can head into the property to salvage property such as furniture, clothing, personal property, electronics, appliances, and so forth.

Clean Up and Dry

Water is a conduit for all sorts of bacteria and pathogens. If you are dealing with gray or black water, then wear protective clothing when cleaning up the mess. We recommend you leave the clean up work to a damage restoration company. They have sophisticated machines and equipment to clean the area and remove excess moisture effectively and efficiently. Plus, these costs may be covered by your property insurance company. These are expenses that you want to get quality service for.

Inspect the Property

With the water damage cleaned up and restored, it is time to do a final survey. Have a home inspector come in and evaluate the condition of the property. An extra pair of eyes can catch things you may have missed. Even a little moisture can introduce mold and mildew growth. The folks at Atlanta Property Inspections are happy to schedule an appointment or arrange an urgent dispatch today.
