As the owner of Discovery Inspections, we have been serving Atlanta area customers since 1997. Our mission is to provide home buyers, sellers and owners with unbiased, comprehensive information regarding property conditions.
As home inspectors we have a fiduciary responsibility to follow defined standards of protocol and document everything we observe. Our inspections typically run 2 to 4 hours in length. Although it is important to know there is no maximum time limit for the inspection. We are not going to give you our best 3 hours and then run off to the next inspection. We’re committed to performing comprehensive inspections independent of how long it may take. Of course, the clients are welcome to attend. We’re committed to not only identifying discrepancies that each property may have as well as other important elements. These elements include maintenance-prone areas that warrant routine attention, the location of emergency shutoffs and even some affordable improvements that are proven to reduce energy bills. So bring some comfortable shoes, your own flashlight if you like and feel free to ask any questions throughout the inspection! Oh, and in case you’re wondering, the inspector won’t answer calls on the cell phone during the inspection. This time is dedicated for you. That’s why we have a full-time office staff to facilitate incoming calls to schedule inspections, answer questions, provide extra copies of reports and serve any other customer needs. We’re a professional outfit staffed by professionals.
