Inspection Services

Paul Maxwell Inspections offers thorough and dependable property inspection services to the North Atlanta Metro and the surrounding counties. We take every step of the inspection process seriously—accounting for details that often go overlooked, while also spending time with the client to pinpoint any subject matter than may need extra attention when we generate our report. We adhere to GAHI’s excellent Standards of Practice.

Additional Inspection Services

Pre Listing Inspection Service

Pre-Listing Inspection

Before you list your home on the market, it may be in your best interest to schedule this inspection service. We’ll thoroughly inspect the condition of the home to be sold, identifying potential defects so that you’re aware before showing the home. This way, you can arrange repairs if necessary or otherwise discuss the issues with prospective buyers so that negotiations can progress smoothly.

New Construction Inspection Service

New Construction Inspection

This inspection service should be performed before the builder conducts the final walkthrough of a home you intend to buy. We’ll carefully investigate the condition of the new construction—including any installed mechanical systems. If our findings present evidence of potential defects, you can refer the information to the builder before the final closing period is complete.

New Construction Phase Inspection Service

New Construction Phase Inspections

When we conduct Phase Inspections, we’re able to inspect new construction during as many stages of construction as the client requests. This can help to ensure that the construction process isn’t met with significant delays by identifying safety issues and defective materials while they are still easily accessible for the builders to make repairs.

11 Month Warranty Inspection Service

11th Month Warranty Inspection

After you’ve owned a new home for a year, it’s more than likely true that your original home warranty has expired. Before this occurs, we encourage new homeowners to schedule this inspection in order to maximize their investment protection. We’ll thoroughly inspect your home for potential issues that may warrant minor—or perhaps, even extensive—repair work. While your warranty period is still active, you may be able to receive assistance for the cost of repairs.

Re Inspection Service

Re-Inspections

This inspection service is designed specifically with returning clients in mind. If our previous home inspection uncovered unsafe materials or defective components, then we can re-evaluate those areas of the home once the seller has arranged for repairs to be made. This will help you have peace of mind with the current state of the home before you make a buying decision.

Mold Testing

Mold Inspection

When mold reveals itself inside a home, there’s a good chance it has already been growing for quite some time, hidden within the home’s various structural components. This inspection will thoroughly investigate a home for signs of mold growth, including the moisture that allows it to survive.

Radon Testing

Radon Testing

If you’re preparing to buy a home, we highly recommend scheduling this inspection service to determine if radon levels inside the home are safe. Radon is a naturally occurring gas that happens to have carcinogenic properties—in fact, radon exposure is one of the nation’s leading causes of lung cancer. The gas is odorless and invisible, making it nearly impossible to detect without specialized equipment. We’ll make sure that the home is tested appropriately so that you receive an accurate radon reading before agreeing to terms with the seller of the property.

Commercial Property Inspection Service

Commercial Property Inspection

This inspection service is a detail-oriented evaluation of a commercial property. If you’re planning to invest in a commercial building, it’s a good idea to schedule this inspection before you’re bound by contract. We’ll identify the property’s strengths and weaknesses so that you’re knowledgeable about improvements that may need to be made in order for the investment to be worthwhile for your interests.

Proudly Serving the North Atlanta Metro

We inspect homes for clients throughout the North Atlanta area, including Cobb, Fulton, Cherokee, Dekalb, Gwinnett, and Douglas counties.
