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 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.

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!

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

What You Should Know About Commercial Building Permits

A commercial building permit is crucial if you want to renovate or build an additional building to the current one. If you don’t know much about this permit and its importance for your property, then you are at the right place. We have decided to inform everyone in detail about this permit. That’s why throughout this article, we will go over what a commercial building permit is, when it is required, how they are useful, what to do if there is a code violation, and how Atlanta Property Inspection can help. So, let’s start learning.

What is a Commercial Building Permit?

Your local government usually issues a commercial building permit to ensure everyone's safety. They are obtained when there is work regarding renovating the existing property, constructing a new property in addition to the existing property, or constructing a new property entirely. This permit is essential for public safety and the health of the building. Let’s look at more details on the occasions this permit is required.

When Is This Permit Required?

As we said above, you need this permit if you renovate an existing property. Some examples of renovation can include coloring the exterior wall entirely if they are different from the current program, combining spaces by demolishing a wall, moving locations of entrances, or changing the space of offices. Although they may seem like minor things that aren’t required to get a permit, it will be better for you to report this to your local building department and notify them of this change.

How Are These Permits Useful?

Going back to what is a commercial building permit section, we said that the local government does it to ensure safety. If we were to look at it in more detail, this safety can be defined as protecting the building occupants, life safety, serving as a record for future reference in the case of an unusual event, stormwater and fire management systems to prevent any potential damage to the property, and insulation requirements. These all serve to provide a better and safer space for everyone.

What To Do If There Is A Code Violation?

Sometimes, property owners don’t realize they are involved in a code violation until warned. If you get a code violation, do not try to make a real estate deal. This will result in the issue growing and your property losing credibility. Instead, try to quickly solve the problem, call the local government to learn more about the problem, and then continue with your normal deals.
