Many inexperienced homebuyers somehow have the impression that it is just a waste of time to hire an Atlanta home inspector. They may have read a few articles on the Internet, picked up a "Home Inspection for Dummies" book at the local home improvement store, or even gleaned a bit of knowledge from a parent or relative. With their new found 'expertise', they think that they can spot every single problem. The problem is, though, that no amount of study can match the years of experience a good home inspector has under their belt. Home inspectors have seen, firsthand, every problem a house could have. Plus, they know which problems are common in the area.

When done thoroughly, an Atlanta home inspection can literally save you thousands of dollars. Home inspectors check everything in your new home, from the basement to the attic, to make sure that you are getting a good deal. You may not notice a small section of rotted floor in the kitchen before it becomes a major repair. Nothing evades the attention of a good Atlanta home inspector. A minor issue such as a leaky pipe could easily become a major problem if not corrected immediately. Needless to say, a good inspector can spot this problem and give you advice to help you keep your investment in great shape.

When you install a new toilet, you have to install a vent pipe to prevent malodorous sewer gases from getting into your home. In fact, all new drainage systems need a new vent. If a new vent is not added, it can also interfere with a toilet's ability to flush. A do-it-yourselfer will sometimes forget this step, though. An Atlanta home inspector can spot this problem easily and tell you that the suction would cause the toilet to release foul odors into the home. When it comes to the safety and health of your family, hiring an inspector is always the best bet. They have the experience and specialized equipment to check every home system for operational safety.

Something that few new homeowners consider when purchasing their first home is the water and air quality. Volatile organic compounds, lead, and even bacteria can be present in a home's potable water system, bringing illness with each glass of water you drink. What is even worse is the fact that the very air you breathe in your new home could be filled with dangerous gases such as carbon monoxide or radon. A home inspector can do extensive tests to ensure that your family is not being exposed to these substances. In the end, what a home inspector can give you is peace of mind.
