Ed Snope is an Arlington-based home inspector and the owner of ATLAS Home Inspection, a leading home inspection company that has been serving clients in Northern Virginia for nearly 10 years. With over 35 years experience in home repair, Ed provides essential information for home buyers and home owners.
"Ed takes the time to explain the information that you need on-site so that you know what you need to make a well-informed decision at the time of the inspection, and is also available to follow-up with any questions that you may have."
"You get a personalized, well-written, well-organized, repair-oriented, and easy-to-read inspection report with labeled photos. Ed labels each inspection photo with the description and location, which is not required, but this makes the reports easier for everyone to read. Many inspectors do not label report photos, label photos with numbers, or may include photos which are not needed."
Referrals come from previous clients, real estate agents, builders, online searches, and reviews. Ed does not pay for advertising or marketing services. Beware of claims of fast turnaround reports, new technology, or additional services. Ed takes the time to write your report with your best interests in mind, and your report is typically delivered within 24 hours of the inspection. Every report is proofread before delivery. Infrared and moisture readings are available at no extra cost with the inspection on an as-needed basis.

What Clients Have To Say:
"We took possession of our new house this past Tuesday and are moving this coming Wednesday, so this week has been a whirlwind of minor repairs. I just wanted to thank you again for your excellent and thorough inspection, and for the comprehensive report - it's been incredibly useful in making all the little fixes we need to make, and I'm sure I'll continue to reference it over the coming years. I wanted to make sure to tell you personally how great I thought your service was, and I'll definitely continue to recommend you to anyone I know looking for a home inspector. Hope you're having a great summer!"
