Atlanta Home Inspection Services

Options for your Real Estate Inspection

Champia is a full-service inspection provider going beyond typical Atlanta area home inspections. In addition to the list in the residential and commercial sections, additional inspection options include:

    • Complete Home Inspection: A home inspection is an objective visual examination of the physical structure and systems of a home including the structure, exterior, roof, plumbing, electrical, heating, air conditioning, interior, insulation, ventilation and fireplaces. A typical home inspection will last approximately 3 hours (larger homes will take longer). At the end of the inspection, the home inspector will complete a detailed report on all features inspected. You will also receive a concise, printed summary report outlining all major issues discovered. The home inspector will discuss the summary report with you and your agent and answer any questions. 

    • Radon Inspection: $195 – Radon is a naturally occurring gas that cannot be seen, smelled or tasted.  The Environmental Protection Agency cites radon as the second leading cause of lung cancer. The Atlanta area has the highest radon concentration in Georgia. A simple test will determine the radon level in your home. This price available only when scheduled with a Complete Home Inspection

    • Georgia Wood Infestation Report: $70 – This is also known as a Termite letter.  Georgia is a prime region for termite infestation. A termite inspection report, also known as a termite letter, shows active or previous termite infestation. It detects evidence of wood-destroying organisms, such as certain types of beetles and termites. This report reveals important information, such as earth-to-wood contact and whether any previous termite treatments have been performed. This price available only when scheduled with a Complete Home Inspection

    • Commercial Inspection: When buying a small building or an office within a larger building, you need an inspection that focuses only on issues that are relevant to the purchase. Our inspection and report are focused on issues that are unique to the property and include a complete survey of property conditions. This is ideal for a client comfortable in performing his or her own cost analysis for repairing or replacing defective items. 

    • Pool Inspection: The pool inspection includes an analysis of the exterior of the pool the pool shell/coping and pool equipment including the heater, pump, filter and electrical components. 

    • Pre-Drywall Inspection: New construction only. This inspection is performed at the framing phase, after all mechanicals are installed and right before the drywall goes up.  We will check the installation of all framing, electrical wiring, HVAC duct-work and the building’s sanitary pipe drainage and potable water supply systems before it is all covered up with insulation and drywall.

    • Mold: Certain species of mold and mildew pose health risks. We can check on visible signs and odors of mold or mildew to identify the species and arm you with information on possible health hazards and moisture problems in your home.

    • One-Year Warranty: New construction typically offers a warranty for the first year.  Before that warranty expires, we offer a complete home inspection to make sure the builder takes care of all building issues.

    • Re-Inspection: After receiving a home inspection from Champia, our report will oftentimes recommend repairs by a certified professional.  Once the repair is complete, we offer a re-inspection on that item to make sure the problem has been repaired properly.

    • Stucco Inspection: There are 2 types of stucco:  synthetic and EIFS (also called Hard-Coat).  Both types have the ability to retain water and cause moisture levels to be 30% or higher behind the surface.  Our inspectors use moisture scanners and probe meters to determine the moisture levels.  They can also tell you how to maintain and care for your stucco. 

    • Thermal Scan Inspection: Our certified residential thermographers use specialized cameras to capture heat patterns that allow them to see what’s behind the walls for an in-depth view of a building’s condition. Thermal imaging is used to monitor and locate many hidden conditions such as; heating and cooling loss through improperly insulated areas, air movement through an enclosure, moisture presence from plumbing or rain water issues, termite damage or potential electrical problems.

    • Water Certification: Required in DeKalb County on homes built before 1993.  This inspection is required before closing and is a certification that all plumbing fixtures are low-flow fixtures (e.g., toilet, shower).

    • Seller Home Inspection: We commonly refer to this as a “walk and talk” inspection.  We will inspect your property and tell you everything we see that could be important in the sale of your house, but no official inspection report is generated.  You follow us and take notes.
