Home Inspections & Additional Services
GSI Residential Inspection
Are you Buying or Selling a Home in Metro Atlanta or North Georgia?
Hire Georgia State Inspections to inspect your home! GSI Home Inspections supply the information you need to make an informed decision about your potential purchase. We’ll explain any issues we find and will let you know what items will need maintenance or to be repaired in the future.
Jake Accardi is an ASHI and InterNACHI certified home inspector in Metro Atlanta. Georgia State Inspections is fully insured and certified, and you can depend on us to give you an exceptional inspection of your property. For your convenience, we have Supra Lock Box access to homes so we can schedule your inspection without needing a realtor present.
We are certified in Infrared Thermal Imaging and provide this with every inspection. Thermal Imaging reveals many problems that are undetectable by an unaided visual inspection alone. We are pleased to bring this technology to our Metro Atlanta clients.
When you hire us for your next home inspection, we’ll thoroughly examine the following areas when safely accessible and visible:
- Structural Components
- Exterior of the home including windows, doors & foundation.
- Plumbing Systems
- Electrical Systems
- Heating Systems
- Central Air Conditioning
- Built-in Kitchen Appliances
- Basements & Crawlspaces
Home Inspections for Houses, Condos, Townhomes and Apartments are customized for each client’s needs and may also include:
Moisture Intrusion, Fire Protection, Air Quality, Insulation, Erosion Control, Forensic, Pre-Listing, Pre-Closing, Construction Progress, Builder Warranty, Foreclosures, Radon, and Mold.
Infrared Thermal Imaging is a state-of-the-art technology that reveals details about your property which are undetectable using conventional inspection methods.
Thermal imaging recognizes heat signatures rather than light, meaning you can see things that would otherwise be hidden. We’re able to find issues like water intrusion, heat loss and ventilation problems, potential pest infestations, hidden roof leaks, faulty insulation and electrical faults. We provide Thermal Imaging with every inspection.
Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that causes lung cancer if high concentrations are present in the air. Radon collects in buildings and homes by seeping through cracks in the foundation.
Since it’s an odorless gas, a professional inspection is required to detect the presence of radon. Though radon causes major health issues, it is easy to mitigate radon once you know it’s a problem. An inexpensive radon test can be added to your home inspection or can be ordered separately. Hire GSI to test for radon today and protect your family!

Comprehensive Home Inspection
Georgia State Inspections uses aerial drone technology to check hard to reach places such as steeply pitched roofs and reveal conditions not visible from the surface.
