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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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!

What’s in Your Drinking Water?

Every water taste different from one another. Even in the same city, different districts and even neighborhoods can have different tasting waters. That’s mainly because of the different elements and components found in the water. Since we use water this much every single day, we must know what it is because our health is inside it. In this article, we will go over some of the components of our drinking water.

Sources

Well, our drinking water can come from many different sources and the source is one of the main factors that define the taste of the water. It can come from surface waters such as lakes, rivers, or even reservoirs. Another source is groundwater, which is found deep inside the earth. In most cases, groundwater is cleaner and safer to drink because surface water is constantly exposed to many weather conditions, acids, and other contaminants so it is easier for it to be harmful to human health.

Lead

Unfortunately, Lead is one of the most found elements in the water. As you may be aware of it, lead is associated with many different health problems in both adults and kids. In adults, it can cause kidney failure, hypertension, cardiological problems, and joint pain. Similarly, it is associated with neurological problems in kids. Even though lead pipes aren’t commonly used nowadays, it is still found in drinking waters, especially if you are living in an older settlement. 

Pathogens

Just like humans, many living organisms need water to survive; so, many microorganisms can be found inside the water. Unfortunately, many of these microorganisms aren’t beneficial for human health and are pathogens. Even though many regulations and steps were taken to avoid pathogens in drinking waters, they aren’t completely eradicated.

Sodium

At least this one is good news! Sodium is one of the most frequently found elements in our waters. However, this is not a bad sign because it is one of the most necessary electrolytes for your body that is essential for your metabolism and health. We need sodium in our bodies and luckily our drinking waters can give it to us.

Zinc

Another element found in drinking water is zinc. It is added to the water source mainly to avoid pathogens, but this is a good thing for us. That’s because just like sodium, zinc is another electrolyte in our bodies that is essential for our health. You may know that doctors prescribe zinc for the treatment of many diseases and conditions such as diabetes, acne, diarrhea, etc. So, if it is found in the right amounts, zinc in your drinking water can be very beneficial. 

Importance of Testing Your Water

Did you move into a new city or neighborhood and want to know the quality of your water? Well, with today’s technology, it is possible to find out exactly what is inside your water. Call the Atlanta Property Inspection so we can come to your house and send your water to the water testing facilities and help you get the exact results. Depending on the components of your water or their levels, you may decide to install a water filter, so your water is safe to drink once again. Risking your health isn’t worth it so ease your mind by simply calling us. We are a home inspection company, and our home inspectors are ready to provide you with many different services regarding your property. Contact us to learn more!
