Even better, we work with you to find repairs and solutions to all your home’s issues. Whether you’re buying or selling, let us help you make your home the best it can be. We service metro Atlanta and are proud to help our customers make their homes a dream come true.
As certified home inspectors, we have the qualifications to check all the vital areas of your home for structure and function, as well as the expertise to look for specific problems like hazardous mold and lead or even radon gas in your home.
We operate based on two fundamental principles. One, our customers are customers for life. From the beginning of your first home inspection to the completion of the repairs on your last, we aim to stick with you and see you through the entire process.
Second, unlike other inspectors, we believe the best policy is to be completely honest and transparent during the inspection process. Being completely honest may not always be the best thing to hear in regards to your home, but it’s the best way to handle any problems that arise. You can trust us to give you the truth each and every time we work with you.
For the sake of our clients and their homes, we stand by these two principles to deliver quality and service that you can count on.

The foundation is the most important part of any home. A cracked and broken foundation can cause a structure to be unstable and thereby unlivable. We will inspect your home’s foundation for cracks, sagging, water damage, and any other issues that may be present and may affect your ability to live in or sell your home.
Foundation problems can be the result of a variety of causes. Identifying the damage and the cause of the damage will put you on the right road to fixing the problem for good. We’ll support you in the process of making your home stable again.
Heating and Cooling Inspection
Another part of your home that deserves proper attention is your home’s heating and cooling system. Homeowners in Georgia know just how unbearable the summer heat is. Not having a working air conditioner can make a home very difficult to live in.
We will inspect your home’s ac or heater to make sure everything is in working order. Whether it’s a broken ac, a faulty heater, a busted furnace, or other HVAC equipment, we’ll find the problem and then work closely with you to find experts and technicians to help you resolve the issue. No one wants to live in a home without the ability to control the temperature.
Attic and Crawl Space Inspection
The space above and below your home is just as important as your main living spaces. We can inspect your attic and crawl space to find any underlying problems with your home that may otherwise go unnoticed.
Problems in the attic can include leads, gaps between the attic and the roof, poor insulation, rotting wood, and mold. Gaps in between the roof and the attic can cause water damage and mold, resulting in the home being dangerous to live in. Poor insulation in the attic is another issue that may come up, which will cause your home to be less energy efficient and cause you to lose heating and cooling more quickly.
Similarly, issues underneath your home can be detrimental as well. Issues in your home’s crawl space can include pests, moisture buildup, problems with your home’s subfloor or foundation, as well as the potential for mold and other contaminants. Making sure to include the crawl space in your home inspection can help you to catch and then mitigate any potential risks before they become a costly financial burden.
Plumbing and Electrical
Your home’s utilities are of particular concern, especially when buying a new home or selling your old one. There are a number of issues that can pop up with either one of these systems.
Plumbing issues can result from a number of situations. Old pipes, poor drainage, an overworked septic tank, or even corrosion and gunk in your pipes can cause backups and other concerns if not addressed in a timely fashion.
Electrical issues can be just as troubling. Faulty wiring, blow fuses, worn down electrical sockets, all of these things can be dangerous or even deadly. Always make sure to have your electrical system checked to ensure that your electrical panels, wiring, and other systems are in good shape to avoid any future problems.
Not only do we check your home for all the common issues and then some, but we are also specially trained to look for issues that you wouldn’t normally expect. These include mold inspection, inspection for lead in the home, and inspection for radon gas. While mold may be noticeable if you know what to look for, many homeowners aren’t aware of the presence of lead or radon in their homes.
Lead can be found in a number of materials in a home, including pipes, flooring, and paint. We are trained to find these issues and help you with finding trained technicians to remove the material to keep your home safe. Lead is poisonous and can cause numerous health concerns due to exposure.
Radon gas is probably the least known of these three poisons. Radon typically seeps into cracks in a home from the soil underneath due to the breakdown of specific soil minerals. It is very difficult to detect without looking for it specifically, but the consequences can lead to a prolonged illness, including pneumonia. Radon can even seep into your home’s water supply and contaminate your home. Radon can even become trapped within your home once it gets in, making your entire home a health hazard.
Let us help you by detecting these issues and helping you find the right way to deal with them before you or your family suffer harm.
Having a house inspected before its purchase is a must. If you were to purchase a home without an inspection, you could discover some serious problems after buying the home. These problems can be costly, and catching these issues before making a final purchase is very important. No one wants to own a money pit where you find yourself having to make countless expensive improvements to make a home liveable.
A home inspection identifies defects in a home that could lead to serious expenses. The inspection report will also include important tips which could be followed to correct those defects and a checklist for home maintenance in the future.

We take care of inspections on homes whether you are planning to buy or sell. You can decide what the result is once you look at the detailed report we will provide. Contact us today to find out more about our home inspection services.

New Construction Inspection
