Our team  Reviews

Our experience and certifications set us apart.

Serving the Atlanta market since 2002

For nearly 3 decades, Nier Building Inspections has served the Atlanta market and performed inspections nationwide. We’ve also provided training for home inspectors and contractors locally for over 7 years.

Backed by extensive certifications

Every Nier Building Inspections consultant is a certified professional inspector. We are certified in construction, land development, mold radon, stucco and duct and envelope testing. Our certifications are from PRO-LAB,ESA, State of Georgia, International Code Council and Georgia Soil and Water Conservation District.

We’ve been certified as a Level V “Professional Building Official” by BOAG (Building Officials Association in Georgia), Master Code Professional (MCP) from the ICC (International Code Council) and Code Certified Master Inspector-CCMI from GAHI (Georgia Association of Home Inspectors).

The Master Code Professional (MCP) is the highest level of certification the Code Council offers. The Code Council has certified thousands of individuals, but only a small select number have attained this high level of achievement, approximately 800 individuals (as of 1/2017). To obtain this level of certification requires and demonstrates commitment to the profession, diverse knowledge of codes, and a high level of self-initiative. Master Code Professionals are typically responsible for all technical and management aspects of code enforcement.

Duties include, but are not limited to:

  • management of a code enforcement department
  • supervision of building, plumbing, mechanical, electrical, and elevator inspectors and support staff
  • performing or supervising performance of building, electrical, plumbing, and mechanical plan review
  • when necessary, inspecting or supervising inspection of structures for compliance with the International Codes® and referenced standards.

Professionalism every step of the way

We create a customized written detailed report that can be used as your “owner’s manual” for maintaining your home.

The only wrong question is the question you didn’t ask!

We encourage you to be present during the inspection and ask questions. We want you to feel informed and confident about every decision you make based on the evaluation you receive.
