safeguard your purchase - catch potential problems - Gain Unbiased Expert Advice

The decision to sell or purchase a home is an important decision. At Sunbeam, we understand that accuracy and reliable information will help guide you to making the decision that is right for you and your family. An inspection gives an objective visual examination of the physical structure and systems of a house, from the roof to the foundation. When purchasing or selling a home, an inspection is one of the best ways to safeguard your purchase and avoid surprises.  

If you are selling or buying a home or real estate investment, call Mike and the team at Sunbeam for an inspection to ensure you are getting exactly what you’re paying for, and peace of mind that your selling price is worth its value. Our inspections include an in-depth report that details the overall health and condition of the property, and any issues that will need to be looked into further. We offer various “types” of inspections that are listed below in detail. Take a moment to preview the types and advice that may offer you a reasonable solution. And when you’re ready, give us a call at Sunbeam.  

Home inspections

We believe in transparency, and are happy to offer quotes for your home or real estate projects. The cost for a home inspection varies, starting at around $400 for a 2,000-square-foot home. Most buyers spend between $300 and $500, though these prices can vary depending on the size of your home and location.

A detailed inspection report will add validity to your listing and more value to the overall asking price. Knowing that there will be no surprises may improve the likelihood of a sale.

To save yourself the hassle and ensure the sale goes as smoothly as possible, a pre-listing inspection can add credibility and value to your home. 

Home and system inspections can uncover and isolate signs of potential issues. These warning signs could save yourself and your loved ones from surprises in the future.

 If you are buying a home, a pre-purchase inspection could save you thousands on a potential issue that may not have been spotted until it was too late.

Ensure that issues that came up on the initial inspection have been resolved and cared for properly. A common problem with a repair request is to ask for the wrong thing to be fixed or to specify an improper repair. A follow-up inspection will give you peace of mind that what needed fixing was completed. 

If repairs are being done by licensed contractors, and the repair requests are specific,  with appropriate permits obtained, a follow up inspection probably isn’t necessary. But if the repairs are being done by the seller, I strongly recommend a re-inspection to ensure all repairs and issues were handled correctly. 

We provide in-depth radon testing to ensure a complete safety screening of your property. Radon is notorious for causing cancer and other major health risks. Knowing the radon levels will give you an idea of how bad the issue is and what help you may need. 

A sewer scope inspection is performed with a small camera that records a video of the line, designed to reveal blockages, cracking, damage, and more. Homeowners or prospective buyers need to understand the condition of the entire home, and the plumbing system could be hiding various issues. Our inspectors will make sure any issue with your plumbing and sewage systems is uncovered before it has a chance to affect your daily living.

Our thermal infrared camera provides a powerful, noninvasive method to uncover issues that may otherwise go undiscovered. Infrared imagery can detect abnormal temperatures, water issues, heating or AC issues, gas buildup, and more.

Results are captured and documented. The imagery will be included in the reports to be shown as evidence in case you need to interact with a buyer, seller, contractor, insurance company, or other entity. Thermal imaging home inspections help you save time, money, and help service providers get right to the issue.

Southern homes utilize wells and other water systems to provide homes with access to clean water. It’s important to ensure your wells and water pumps are properly maintained. Without proper testing, you and your loved ones could be at risk of contamination, ingesting potentially harmful minerals, pathogens, substances, and more. 

Sunbeam Home Inspections will test to make sure all components of the system are functioning as intended. We also work to make sure the water that reaches your home is properly filtered and safe to drink. If we discover any issues, we will make sure to notate our findings in the report so you will know how to fix the issue.

Everyone makes a mistake now and then. For example, a contractor might have been working too quickly, or maybe there was a miscommunication between subcontractors. Sunbeam inspectors have the expertise to find often-overlooked problems, including:

  • Structural issues

  • Improper grading

  • Evidence of mold

  • Poorly installed roofing 

  • Faulty wiring 

  • Plumbing leaks

  • Inadequate insulation 

  • Incorrectly installed HVAC systems 

Your home warranty likely covers quality and materials for just one year, so it’s important to schedule the builder visit well before the warranty ends. You never know what issues may come up as the house begins to settle. An inspection could take place before or after a builder meeting, should you discover any issues that need clarification. 

An inspector can help you find any problems before signing off on the final builder walk-through. A new house inspection is standard and reputable builders will fully cooperate with this inspection to give you 100% satisfaction. 

You can have your house inspected at any point, but good timing is crucial because you don’t want to schedule an inspection so late that it delays your closing. But, it’s also a smart idea to wait until your local government inspector has signed off on the current work.

Consider hiring Sunbeam Home Inspections for a pre-drywall inspection and a second follow-up visit later. With separate visits, we can review the electrical, plumbing, and framing work before the drywall goes up. Once the house is completed, we can return for the follow-up inspection on the completed project. Packaged prices are available for this service. 

  • Doors and windows

  • Walls, ceilings, trim, and flooring

  • Appliances

  • Sinks, toilets, and tubs

  • HVAC

  • Driveway and walkways

  • Landscaping, hardscaping, and irrigation

  • Patio, deck, and porch

  • Roof and gutters

  • Drainage and drain fields

To save yourself the hassle and ensure the sale goes as smoothly as possible, a pre-listing inspection can add credibility and value to your home.

If you are buying a home, a pre-purchase inspection could save you thousands on a potential issue that may not have been spotted until it was too late.

Proof of compliance with safety standards will give you peace of mind, and whoever occupies the home will know that they are safe.

A properly completed inspection will help homeowners and potential home buyers navigate their financial decisions and offer a faster planning process.

What Our Customers Say

"Mike recently did an inspection on a property for some friends of ours relocating here from Colorado. As they were still out west, I attended the inspection on their behalf. Mike’s attention to detail was remarkable. He looked at everything, double-checked all their special requests, climbed up on the roof, went in the attic, checked drains, electrical, window seals and all the minute details. He was thorough and professional. I would absolutely recommend, and will use him next time we are looking to purchase (or sell) a property."

I would highly recommend his services to anyone who is in need of a thorough and detailed inspection. The price for his services was very competitive and his report was very professional and easy to follow."
