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.

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.

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!

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!

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!

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.

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.

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!

Where Do Termites Come From?

When homeowners see a termite in their house, they tend to get worried and even stressed as these little creatures can cause much damage to your property that you won’t be able to notice. However, there isn’t anything to worry about. Throughout this article, we will go through what termites are, where they come from, how to prevent them from entering your house, what to do if they enter your home, and how Atlanta Property Inspection is involved.

What Are These Tiny Insects?

Termites are one of the insects that cause the most damage to your house. They are tiny and can’t be easily noticed unless looked at carefully. Like all insects, they look for the best place to get their food, a suitable environment like moisture and water. So, some of them live in your house. How can they cause damage to your home? Termites like to feed off of anything that contains cellulose. Cellulose is found in your wallpaper, wood, books, etc. So, termites can quickly eat your house up.

Where Exactly Do They Come From?

There are many types of termites in which each has its way of entering and colonizing a house. For example, a subterranean termite likes to live underground, and for them to enter, they must find a hole in a wood or door frame in the ground. Another example is dry wood termites. These termites, as they sound, love it when they find cracked or opened wood in a house. They close the door to themselves throughout winter and use the area to colonize. As they have more and more termites, the risk to your home increases more than ever.

How Do You Prevent Termites from Entering Your House?

Of course, we aren’t hopeless. We have a lot we can do to prevent these tiny insects from eating our houses:

  • We must keep our home clean and eliminate any excessive and unnecessary equipment.
  • It would be best if you tried to keep the moisture in the place as little as possible. This way, in addition to other insects, termites can not like your house.
  • The most critical action you can take is to get a home inspection. With a home inspection, you can ask the inspectors to locate the zones that termites can enter and colonize. You can quickly close these locations and prevent them from entering with the information given by these home inspectors.

What Do You Do If These Insects Enter Your House?

If you locate a termite colony and believe it has the potential to destroy significant parts of the house, you can call a pest control company. This can help you remove all the termites currently in the home, possibly preventing future ones from entering that location.
