John Mease Home Inspections is an independent building property inspection service in the metro Atlanta area. My background includes earning my Engineering degree from The Citadel in 1980. I performed commercial engineering, construction and inspection projects for a Fortune 100 company for fifteen years throughout the Eastern US including notable Atlanta landmarks – Midtown Plaza, the Marriott Marquis Hotel downtown, the Terraces buildings at the Perimeter, the Cumberland Overlook buildings and River Ridge in Sandy Springs.
My hobby has always been houses and when it came time to find a home and a career to settle into, we chose my wife’s hometown of Atlanta and my hobby. I returned to school to certify for Home Inspections and have performed several thousand private home and building inspections since 1995. I am Code certified for new homes, older homes and commercial buildings by the International Code Council, the group that writes the Codes adopted by Georgia. I also hold the engineering credentials required by several Atlanta metro area new home builders. I earned my Indoor Air Quality Investigator certification from the Medical University of South Carolina. The state of Georgia does not license Home Inspectors. We must prove our worth on our own.
